2: Our Dearest PRATEET, So many of our friends and relatives who shared brewing hot cream coffee on the chilly 19th January evening in the SPL Estate for years told me that they would definitely attend Prateet’s marriage whether they are invited or not. Such was the attraction for the birthday. We were happy, everyone was delighted and Prateet was excited. He would preferable hover around Nana-Nani or Mummy-Papa or Archana-Munnan. Little did he know why presents were poured in. He thought people are leaving their package by mistake. He loved running on the lawns. He grew up slowly as a prince. Whenever he was happy, healthy and with ‘I don’t care what the world thinks of me’ attitude, we rejoiced. Whenever he was little unwell we all would make efforts to mitigate his illness. A joint family effect! Muskan brought fun, frolic and smile to the whole family and all around us. Now people were looking forward to two birthday parties in the year. Talking about parties, we arranged a big dinner party on your birth at Bangalore attended by Professors of Institute of Science and BHEL. The party during the marriage was attended by all of our relatives, friends and others. It really surprised us to meet all members of our big family now globally scattered. How did it happen? It was Prateet effect.. These two parties had touched your Nana and Nani immensely as they stand as big milestones in their lives. After feeling your pulse both at U.K. and Hyderabad, I knew that you are blessed with His rare gift - Intellectual solitude. You have a clear view of problems and are able to visualize the main stages on the way to your goal. Whenever I have a long talk with you on your subject of work, I slowly drag answers to my critical queries. This gives me the opportunity to learn more. My best wishes for the successful completion of your present technological project. On your thirtieth birthday, we offer our blessings No matter how difficult the future path is, God will always guide Neha and you towards your cherished goal. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. NANA and NANI

That is the appropriate way to celebrate the BIRTHDAY.We wish u a very very Happy Birthday.Have a great great Birthday.Since your birth till date, your life has truly been a celebration for all of us...we happily live through each moment. You grew up into a dignified, convivial, sincere,dedicated and immensely talented young boy who amazed us with his maturity and pleased us with his exceptional achievements. I see a reflection of me in you.We are very proud of you.Hamein aaj bhi tumhare janam ke samay ki sari baatein yaad aati hain.Bharat bandh ka maahaul aur bhi bahut si baatein.Aisa laga jaise tumhare swagat mein sab ruk gaye ho..khoob khush raho aur aage badhte raho yahi hum sab ka aashirwad hai.NEHA ko hamara bahut bahut aashirwad aur pyaar. Tumhare Dadi Babajee."

Now that you are entering into the Elite "Thirties Decade" you are younger with Wisdom and Experience. Many more doors of opportunities are for you to open and experience them with Love and Passion. One very famous and distinguished physicist commented and I quote " Fall in love with some activity and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. Explore the World. Nearly, every thing is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard as much as you want to on the things you like to do the best. Don't think about what you want to be, but do what you want to do. Keep up some kind of a minimum with other things so that society doesn't stop you from doing anything at all." Richard Feynman. Happy Birthday Prateet and Enjoy!! Mami, Mama, Arushri and Vidushi,
