When I got a Mega-Surprise!

In your entire lifespan there are a few ‘memorable’ days, days which remain close to your heart, days that have memories of ultimate happiness. And I very recently experienced one of those days.

Few days back, I turned 20 but I absolutely had no idea that this year’s birthday was going to be the best of all. The wishes galore had begun few minutes before the clock had even struck midnight! Friends were literally lined up to call late at night so as to wish me. As soon as a call was done another came in within seconds. After the calls, it was time to check the texts. Well, I feel with the social circles growing the number of birthday wishes have increased big-time. Normal text messages, Facebook messages and WhatsApp. Friends and relatives all poured in their birthday texts on various messaging platforms and I got busy replying all of them. ( a lot of wishes)

The happiest moment came late at night when my parents woke up and wished me. A hug from them made me emotional. I could feel their incessant love and care that they have given me throughout the last 2 decades. Such a priceless moment made my eyes wet.
I slept very late, at around 3’o clock, courtesy a football match. Very unlikely woke up quite early. Birthday is a day where it feels like the entire world is wishing you showering blessings upon you. It automatically has the energetic effect in it. And yeah, I was energetic! I had a feeling that some surprise was going to come (because we always pop up with surprises for the birthday boy/girl) but of course I wasn’t aware about its details.
In the afternoon a friend of mine came at my place because we had planned to go out and have some food. We had planned to meet but he had delayed a lot (intentionally). As we both went out, hardly did I know that it was all a part of a plan! We went out roamed here and there, had a bit of food. My dear friend was intentionally delaying this so-called outing. It was as if he wanted both of us to stay there longer (planning again). He kept on receiving calls and texts and when I asked him who it was, he just said it was his mom! And I burst into laughter because I knew it wasn’t.

So as per the highly secret plan both of us arrived at my place and too my surprise my posters were pasted on the buildings and the society gate. From there began the surprise sequence. The poster read, “Rare Species found on camera”, and I was like, what is that! And I sensed there was something big coming up.
As I entered my house, I saw my friends there and there was noise everywhere. I asked them what is happening, what was that poster but they didn’t listen and in fact handed me a four page newspaper, “The Times of Sanket”. Before I could read the “newspaper” all of them took it away and I had to solve a clue, for the next gift.

On solving it I found the gift, a cool mobile cover. But this cover had a clue too. I was actually baffled with what was happening as I didn’t have a clear idea of this mega-surprise. Now, I went where my 2nd gift was waiting for me, this time a beautiful black shirt. I hardly had look at it when everybody made me solve the next clue which was attached with the shirt. I was wondering exactly how many clues was I going to encounter today! It was all getting difficult to sink in. what was happening was unbelievable, never expected, it was turning out to be a series of bumper surprises. The2nd clue took me to the shoe rack where I found a shoe box and in it was a pair of white formal shoes. Now that enhanced my surprise level big-time!

I was hardly given any chance to wear those shoes and was again made to solve a clue attached to it. Seriously, with each moment passing I was turning speechless. As I solved the next clue- of course with assistance- I found myself in my room and on the wall I saw two posters, one of ManU- my favorite football club- and the other one was of kung fu panda. And in between them was pasted another clue! (how intense the preparation was) then I found a book named “place of illusions”  hidden on my study table. Then again it had a clue to solve my 6th gift! And guess what! this gift was the one I liked most actually. It was kung fu panda T-shirt. The moment I saw it all the emotions of happiness steamed into me. It was simply unbelievable.

I thought this mesmerizing gift galore was over but I was wrong. There was another one waiting for me in my kitchen. This time I found a wallet! And it is really cool. In fact it is supercool. And finally to end this ultimately mind-boggling surprise series the final clue took me to my birthday cake.

After so many surprises I was speechless. I was filled with sheer delight, happiness and an unparalleled joy. It made me feel special. And it took me about two hours to actually get normalized. And this afternoon certainly made me emotional , my voice was choked for a moment. That day I realized how lucky I am to have such friends. And I thanked the Almighty for it because all of them made my day a “special” one; with the “Mega-Surprise
