Thank you all very much for the birthday wishes! I can't possibly make all of you eat my birthday cake, but I have good news as a gift to give! Yupp - I'm coming back on television sooner than you can think! Like all my work before, I'm sure you will approve of this role as well. Its for the show titled 'Chhoti Bahu' airing on Zee TV. Do watch out for me as I'll be there really soon
Now about my birthday. I had a quiet but rocking day, even though the cake seems to only get smaller and the candles number only increases with every passing year
We were actually at a friends party who were celebrating their 'just married' tag. So they brought in a second cake to wish me Happy Birthday as well! That was a thoughtful surprise and a sweet gesture. Although, I was quite aware they would do something for me at the strike of twelve, traditionally
Maybe I played spoilsport by not acting very surprised etc but nevertheless, it felt nice and special. The day was spent with family at home since that is how I like celebrating my birthdays- quiet and peaceful yet special. I made my twins taste a little of the creamy piece and cannot wait to cut my birthday cake when they will be old enough to give me surprises themselves! Those birthdays will be exceptional in their own way, etched in my memory forever.
So here is to turning older and happier, only to be made to feel the luckiest father and happiest birthday boy, by my children.. SOON!

Red roses, bouquets, champagne flowing, red dresses and red ties, teddy bear gifts, corny cards..All geared up for Valentines Day, are we??
Well its a special day for everyone in love so you ought to do and make special things and gestures. But why only one day of the entire year? Many of you might believe in the Valentines Day concept and how can we forget its big time endorser-Cupid! But some of us consider everyday Valentines Day, like we do!
We do keep up to this days tradition and do the usual romantic dinners and exchange of surprise gifts..but it happens on other days as well And we like it that way..Besides no one really knows where to trace back the origins of this day to!
Most of you just need a reason to do those silly, nonsensical, adorable things for each other and what better an excuse than February 14th! One of the memorable times we had was Valentines Day spent on the beaches of romantic Goa! And we hope to continue our EVERYDAY romance even when we turn sixty
We sincerely hope this day brings lovebirds only closer and causes no heart breaks. Cupid will take care of the rest.
Write in to us your escapades and plans for this lovey-dovey day! Love is all around. Make the most of it... not only on 14th February but instead every single day of your life!
Hiten & Gauri

Today is our 60th year since India became a totally republican unit. It was back on the 26th of January 1950, that Mahatma Gandhi and several other freedom fighters' and martyrs dream to see a happy and free India was fulfilled. With much pride can I and in fact each Indian boast about their motherlands vibrant cultural heritage, and of course its impressive achievements. We have come a long way from being looked down upon before, and now looked upto.
India has a very exhaustive and lengthy list of children to her credit! Many of them created history and remain legendary. And this is a popular notion not just within our country, but world over. The global fascination and curiosity regarding our diverse cultures but yet maintaining a commonality, leaves every foreigner jaw-dropped, till date. This diversity is the result of the coexistence of a number of religions as well as local traditions.
Even when I go for outdoor shoots and am having a discussion on other nations, I don't even have to start with India's achievements! Everyone is well aware about not only its colorful and intense heritage, but also the contributions it has been making in terms of innovation, world unity, politics, sports and how can I forget-Entertainment! We are so popular for our film and television industry! So much so, that even the phirangis now leave all their work and catch our serials and movie premiers!
Such is the strength of this country, home to over a billion. Almost half our population is below 25 years of age and it is my earnest request to each of you, to continue letting our flag be hoisted and fly with great pride, all the years. The country has advanced to the extent that opportunities for the youth are plenty! So its payback time. Give back to your motherland for all that she has given you.
It is in the hands of the youth of India to take their country forward and make a change. Be the change. Undoubtedly India has her setbacks too. But if you are not satisfied about something, don't crib and have it rectified instead. Help us remove all the wrong happening in our homeland and strive to be the best. It will only earn us more respect from others, and from our mother for looking after her betterment
Aap sab ko Gantantra Diwas ki hardik shubhkamnayen!
