A Birthday Celebration

Rudra, who was living in his farmhouse,

had beautifully decorated the gardens,

on the eve of his 81st birthday ceremony.

Chairs were placed around the rounded

tables, which were covered in gorgeous

satin white sheets.

The farmhouse had an unmistakable air of

old charm with a blend of modern luxury.

The colored ballots were placed on every

wall and on the gate of the house.

Relatives, friends, businessmen, and dignitaries

all arrived to enjoy the birthday party.

It was a pleasurable environment to enjoy

with melodious songs on his birthday party.

Rudra’s mobile phone went on ringing with

wishes pouring in from relatives around the world.

He could realize that like a butterfly enjoying

the beauty of various flowers, he was enjoying

his retired life, and he was grateful for the same.
