Are you a cake-balloon-candles kind of person? 
This age-old custom of cake-and-candles is a cute gesture introduced by the West, but it has now lost its charm for me! I would prefer a large portion of mevaa (dry fruits) on a dish, followed by reciting of a wonderful poem written by my father for occasions such as this ‘Harsh nav, varsh nav; Jeevan utkarsh nav’. I have always pictured my father and mother reciting it for Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on his birthday at the Teen Murti House, for the first time.
