Two Birthdays

Do you know anyone having two legitimate birthdays? Isn’t it a strange thing to have two birthdays? Boggles your mind huh! Well, Sahil happened to know two such people.

One was his sweetheart Natasha Singh. At birth, she hardly weighed five hundred grams and doctors told she won’t survive. Thanks to her granny, for taking up the challenge to keep her alive and healthy. Growing up she knew her birthday was on 6th September 1992 and it was not until she reached Xth standard, when she saw her actual birth certificate hidden in one old rusty trunk. There it was printed on bold letters June 5, 1991. In a blink she was a year older.

The other one was his close friend Sneha Panth. While searching the original documents for admission in B.Tech she stumbled upon her birth certificate on which was written December 15, 1995. Her parents had changed her birthday to 25th December 1996 for admission purpose in kindergarten and never mentioned to her. One moment you are 18 years and Bam! The next one makes you 19.

I or anyone who never had this kind of realization in life will never know what a person goes through in such a moment. Is it tears of joy, insane laughter, sigh, anger or your whole life just seems to be a joke?

Anything can happen anytime in Life 🙂
