Oh, it was my birthday yesterday yes, quarantine birthday! firstly, I thought that it would be just like a normal lockdown day & it would be boring because I won't be able to go out & party with my friends, I won't get to cut the cake, I won't be able to personally meet my friends & enjoy. But my whole scenario changed... yes even in this lockdown, my birthday turned out to be awesome & unique. At 12 am, my 2 best friends conference called me for 1 long hour. We discussed everything right from the beginning when we were so little, it was so fun to talk about old memories. Then my best friend sent me a video of our photos, I slept around 1 am & that day I woke up early morning at 7am. The sky was blue & clear, the sun had just rose, birds were chirping, I sat it my balcony & meditated for some time. then around 10 am, my other 2 best friends called & our call ended around 12 pm. My mom & brother had baked a chocolate cake for me at home, it was delicious. The first time I celebrated my birthday in comfortable pajamas with my family. Then Instagram, Facebook & WhatsApp were flooded with messages. 1 of my friends made collage & videos of my other friends wishing me & sent it to me, it was so full of emotions, I cried. Then in evening, my best friend video called me, she was showing me her terrace, flowers, trees & sky. Our call went on for 2 long hours. it was blissful. My day ended with videocalls, messages & normal calls from relatives & friends. I didn't even realize how fast my day ended. I danced a little, recorded a video & sent it to my relatives. at night, it rained, it was drizzling only, but yes it was this year's 1st rain & I felt the happiest at night when my birthday ended. Though staying apart from friends & relatives, I still celebrated my birthday with them even though miles away. It was amazing, I realized the importance of how big role technology plays in our lives even during these difficult times. We're apart yet we're together.
