12th Dec - A day I'll never forget, not just because it is the "Thalaivar" birthday but as the day I got my first ever bulb in proposing to a girl. She was a friend, of my class, same age and happened to be sister of my classmate. During the secondary school we went to the same tuition, shared weekend group study with other friends and she did computers while I opted for Engineering. At that time colleges doesn't supply text books and we have to look our own text books and notes. She used to get possible books from her college library and slowly slowly I started feeling overwhelmed by those gestures. I was getting thoughts that "I feel that this girl will be a perfect partner for my life journey, serving as inspiration for me and I feel I will be blessed if she comes along with me all the life". After this thought had come, the way I spoke to her, addressed her were with respect and serious nature. I was in the final year of my Engineering and I realised that there is a little time as her parents would have started looking for groom for her. So on her birthday - 12th Dec, I tried to propose.. actually fumbled for words and she sensed that.. and I was rejected outrightly in a second. I was hurt initially, had anger towards her and years later when I looked from her perspective, her reaction was normal. Ofcourse we are not in touch since then, but I this incident is there in my "autograph" as first of the series of bulbs :-)
