Happy Birthday - Rajiv (messy)

todays a special day for all BUFers... and most of you know the reason... but i would still love to spell it out...

its rajivs birthday today... and i wish him on behalf of all BUFers...

rajiv, wishing you a very happy birthday... may you have a lovely life ahead... and may all your dreams come true...

without you BUF wouldn't have been possible... ishi has given her time and heart for this project... but without your support she wouldn't have been encouraged... without you she wouldn't have dreamt of something so big...

so i take this opportunity on behalf of all BUFers to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY...

Sometimes we are lucky enough
to meet a person
who stands out
among all the other people
as being extremely special
who knows what we
are thinking about
who is happy for us at all times
who is always there to talk to us
who cares about us selflessly
who is always truthful with us

Sometimes we are lucky enough
to meet someone who is
extremely wonderful
For me
that person
is you
my dear friend

  10. Thank u all for the lovely wishes for Rajiv... He's not one to well write a lot and express himself too well with words but he was overwhelmed, excited and happy seeing this here.

    Since he had left writing on BUF for ages, he opted to move out which makes this post all the more be remembered and wished like this was truly special..

    Thank you messy and every word u said is true...without Rajiv putting up with my constant obsession with BUF, this space wouldn't be as special as it is!:)
