Happy Birthday to Me !!!

Hi all… Today is my 1st birthday…I am one year old. I was born on this day last year. What ?? Don’t you know me ? Don’t you know Cuckoo ? She is my mom, err.. correction. She is my supermom.

Ohh thank you.. thank you.. for all your good wishes.

Well, my mother had panicked the day I was born. No, no. I wasn’t a creepy creature from some alien world. In fact, she was not able to see my face !! She ran helter-skelter asking everybody what had happened to her eyes, why she was not able to see me.
Apparently she came to know that I was hale & hearty in some other room called blogspot where she didn’t have access to see me. She went to enquiry; there some people could see me and they conveyed her that I am beautiful ! *Ishhh I am blushing now*

Yes, since I was born a few days after the Mumbai bomb blasts, the Indian govt. had banned all her network to see me. That strike was called Internet censorship.

Anyway, she kept feeding me & after four feeds she could see me. Oh my food ? You all humans know it by the name of posts and today my weight is 83 posts. In my world the weight is measured in posts instead of Kgs. Hmmm.. quite a fatso I have become.

My mom cooks a variety of nutritious wholesome food for me and that leaves you all often drooling, laughing and pondering. Sometimes you guys become emotional by seeing me eat a seriously yummy food. She calls it food for thought.
Recently she has started nurturing some poems to me, both in Hindi and English, which though I do not understand much, you people enjoy a lot.

Whenever she feeds me a new dish, you all come running to see what the food is all about and then you give me beautiful gifts. Oh, I love it when you give me gifts. In your world they are called Comments… SiD uncle’s son told me this. He is elder to me and taught me many things. We are good friends and visit each other regularly.

In this one year I have made many friends and my friend circle is increasing everyday. I am happy. Some of you come, pull my chubby cheeks, see me growing but don’t give me any gift :( and some of you don’t write your names while giving gifts. Tell me, how do you expect me to give you a return gift ?

On New Year day, my mom Cuckoo gave birth to my sibling. She is also very cute. Whenever my mom goes traveling, she brings a variety of food for both of us. My little sister likes picturesque colourful food more than the stories. That reminds me that mom is traveling again next weekend. What should I do? :( or :)

These are my top three most tasted (read in your language) dishes.

Mulgi Shikli Pragati Zhali – This meal has three courses namely Part I, II & III. Please go course by course if you want to taste it.
Cry Man, Cry
Tears of Joy

Cuckoo recently prepared a very fine delicacy named That was Indu which has become quite popular among you but still has not been tasted as many times as to come in top three. It has 84 gifts... maximum no. so far.

Fabio Cannavaro was the best side dish and
Kaash was the first dessert prepared by Cuckoo, my lovely mom.

Heyy wish me good luck and a very happy & healthy life ahead and I do hope to have your company along…

Thank you for coming here, adoring me, appreciating me, and giving me lovely gifts (oh, comments). Aah my mom Cuckoo gets excited by all these gifts and starts feeding me more delicacies. ;)

Wish you a very Happy Birthday, One From the Cuckoo's Nest! I enjoyed being with you. May your Supermom present more and more such delicious dishes to us:-)

Congrats, Cuckoo! Well written post! :-)

Fleiger said...

Many Happy Returns of The Day!!!

So, where's the cake?

Priyank said...

Hi! We got linked just a couple of weeks back! How does it feel to be an year old? I am 2 yrs old already, but till recently, only my 'super dad' read me. Now there are a couple of others who do. So when is the party? Are you getting new designs and colors for your birthday??
Happy Birthday again ;)

david mcmahon said...

A very happy birthday and I hope to see many more.

ashes said...

Many Happy Returns of the day Cuckoo's blog! Good luck! May you have a very happy and healthy life ahead! :)

You are so lucky to have a supermom like Cuckoo. She does feed you so many delicacies! On the other hand, this dad of mine does not do anything for me. He is too busy to feed me regularly. He hasn't even named me yet!

Anyways, enough cribbing. Let me find out a way to provoke my Dad to feed me now. I linked up to you to encourage him, but it did not prove much effective. Please let me know if you find a better way to motivate him :).

Happy Birthday once again!

Neeraja said...

Hehehe this was cute :)
happy bday bloggy!

maverick said...

happy b'day to u. now tht u've said it, i think i've forgotten to celebrate my b'day. never mind ! sure i havent read all of the posts u've mentioned but my fav among them was cry man cry

Cuckoo said...

Ansari,
Thank you uncle Ansari. Please do come over. How’s Dubai ? Have you started liking it ?

Abhijit,
Thank you Abhijit uncle. Oh yes, she is a nice Supermom. She doesn’t get much time else she would have fed me daily !! Burrp !!!

Thank you for coming over. I do hope to see you again.

Cuckoo said...

Fleiger,
Thank you Fleiger uncle. Come flying… the cake is waiting for you !

Cuckoo said...

Priyank,
Hello Priyank uncle. Thank you for the wishes.
I am thrilled to be a one year old toddler and sometimes my Supermom has to keep an eye on me. ;) No, no. I am not getting any new clothes now. Had a change of dress sometime back.

but till recently, only my 'super dad' read me... Oh, but your Superdad is quite cool. Don’t worry, your dad, I mean Superdad has created you quite nicely and you’ll also start getting lots of gifts very soon.
The people who come to meet me, will get to know about you as well.

*Shakes hands*

Cuckoo said...

David,
Thank you very much but do you know whose birthday it is ?

Cuckoo said...

Ashes,
Hello Ashes uncle. Thank you for the wishes.
I am thrilled to be Cuckoo’s daughter. She adores me very much.

this dad of mine does not do anything for me.... Awww, that’s bad. Priyank uncle’s son was also complaining the same. In our world, dads are generally better than moms. Ok, I’ll ask my mom to help your dad in feeding you.
Keep coming. The people who come to meet me, will get to know about you as well.

*Shakes hands* Good Luck !

Cuckoo said...

Neeraja,
Thank you Neeraja aunty. Keep coming with lots & lots of gifts. :)

I like them you know. ;)

Cuckoo said...

Maverick,
Thank you Maverick uncle for lovely gift.
Belated Happy B'day to your son !!

Well, Maverick.. this is Cuckoo speaking. Read the remaining posts when you have time. You might change your opinion. :)

मैं यहां टिप्पणी करने से घबरा रहा था। जितनी टिप्पणियां यहां हैं उतनी तो मुझे सारी चिट्ठियों में नहीं मिली हैं।
मैंने आपकी एक कविता और फोटो चुरा कर :-) यहां लगायी है।

SiD,
Those were so lovely gifts you brought for me, uncle SiD. Thank you very much. I am thrilled.
Yes, my mom feeds me delicacies & tries to keep me healthy but only after she gets encouraged by the lovely gifts I get. So, please keep coming, taste the lovely food prepared by her & encourage my mom.

Yeah, people from far off places also come to see me.

Thank you once again. Bbye. TaTa. :)

Cuckoo said...

Aditi,
Thank you Aditi aunty. :)

Dark Elf,
Oh Dark Elf. Thank you very much. Mom told me you were off to the sea ? I love sea very much. I make sand castles in the sand. And I don't want to go back home. :(

Cuckoo said...

Iceman,
You are so cool Iceman uncle. Thank you. I loved your gift. Can I keep all the three ? Pulllleeeeeeeze…

Ajith,
Thank you very much Ajith uncle. My mom is an expert cook, she prepares very fine dishes but she says she’s still learning.

Keep coming & keep tasting the food prepared by her. :)

Cuckoo said...

Rauf,
Thank you Rauf uncle. :)

Cuckoo said...

उन्मुक्त,
सहर्ष धन्यवाद। हा हा, आप तो मुझे शर्मिन्दा कर रहे हैं।

मुझे ख़ुशी है की आपको मेरी कविता पसंद आई और उसे अपने चिट्ठे पर छापने के लायक समझा। मेरी कोशिश रहेगी कि मैं हिंदी में लिखना जारी रख सकूं। समय की पाबंदी से ज़रा कठिन हो जाता है। क्या आपने मेरी अन्य हिंदी कवितायेँ पढ़ी हैं ?

फ़िर एक बार धन्यवाद। आते रहिए, लुत्फ़ उठाते रहिए और हौसला अफज़ाई करते रहिए।

Cuckoo said...

MG,
Then Happy B’day uncle !! But where’s my gift ?

Alok,
Welcome to my birthday uncle Alok. Oh I too like that song very much. "Jungle Jungle baat chali pata chala hai"....

Thanks for coming. Hope to see you again. Keep coming.

Cuckoo said...

JV,
No uncle JV, birthday wishes are never late. It’s just that too many people have come to wish me. Thank you uncle. But it is my birthday party, not my mom’s .

Lots of love,.. Love to my mom ? Where’s my gift then ?? :(

Maverick,
Yes uncle, eat (read) them soon.

n er....ur blog is calling me uncle. can we change tht to bhiyya :) or bro.. No way !! What do you think my mom’s age is ? If I am her daughter then you are my uncle. Final.

Cuckoo said...

Toothless Wonder,
Thank you uncle Toothless. I wonder how interesting your name is !! I’ll also ask my mom to give me a name like that. But I don't think she'ld listen to me. :(
Your parents must be very funny. Or you are still toothless ? How old are you ?

Keep coming, uncle.

Sam,
Yes uncle, I would like to have lots & lots of gifts. Then only my mom gets excited to prepare delicious dishes for me.

Anything will do for me. Thank you.

Cuckoo said...

Bach,
Thank you uncle Bach. Isn’t my mom sweet ?
Keep coming.

Niki,
Thank you Niki aunty. I don’t know Japanese. :( Will French do ? Merci beaucoup. My mom taught me some basic French. ;)

Thank you for coming.
