Birthdays are for kids many affirm.
Weddings bind two people say
Sixtieth celebrations are for the middle-aged nowadays
Eightieth function are for the old mostly .
Cenetenary are for the lucky few.
Every one irrespective of age indulge in ostentation nowadays
Functions come one after another compelling attendance,
They demand presentations and gifts
They enforce hours of chit chatting,
Thus inviting more trouble than cordiality,
When would all these become a private affair?
When would all these attain an austerity?
When would people learn?
