I got this message from one of my friend and found worth to share across…….Please read thru !!!
Please refrain from giving B’Day Bumps
For all of us, birthdays are a time for celebrations, parties and bonhomie. There’s cake to go around and we all love receiving gifts from our friends and family on our special day.
But something rather disturbing has come to my notice in the past few months. This was a rare scenario years earlier … but now the same seems to be a norm !!! A very hurtful and potential dangerous way to wish someone – with birthday bumps.
When giving someone a birthday bump, you are targeting one of the most sensitive parts – the Back.
Birthday Bumps – Witnessed anywhere always brings back one particular college memory of mine.
There was a colleague of mine in college who stood witness to one of such events at his 20 th Birthday in College. It was his last birthday on his legs – Standing …..
He has been bed ridden now … for almost 3 years …..

So My Frnds ……Before you raise your leg to hit someone, remember that even a little margin of error can cause a lot of damage to the spinal cord. One wrong blow on a sensitive spot could prove to be fatal for the recipient.
So next time you’re tempted to use this method of wishing, it’s time to pause and think again.
Folks, why hurt someone on their special day?
I’d like to request all of you to be a little more considerate and celebrate this happy occasion without causing anyone any harm. Let’s make it a great day for our frnds – one they’ll remember for the right reasons.

Courtesy: Thanks to my friends Archana Muralidharan and Viji Rajesh for keeping me in their mailing list through which I got to receive this information.
Whatever it is, I felt so happy after reading the post because of the following points:
- I never get involved in these activities eventhough our college life was not an exception to these celebrations.
- I do personally believe that ‘the Birthday is very special to every individual!’. So,why making them suffer on that auspicious day?
- Despite getting involved in a little debate with the buddies who contend their ‘Birthday bumps’, got a conclusion that I could not change them definitely.
But I am sure this mail would indeed take a chance.
Please let all your buddies know about this and let’s have the celebrations for a REAL “Happy Birthday”!
