Happy Birth Day to Amitabh Thakur
Amitabh Thakur was born on 16 June 1967 but keeping in tradition the Bihari style of saving a few years so as to have as many extra years in the Government job that he would later enter, as he actually did when he joined the Indian Police Service in the year 1992, he had an official reincarnation on 16 June 1968.
Thus Amitabh lived in a state of "to be born next year" between 16 June 1967 and 15 June 1968 and thus finally and truly he arrived for all the official documents on 16 June 1968.
Summing it up, 1967 or 1968, the fact remains that 16 June of the English Calender, which is the 167th day of the year (168th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar, on which Ford Motor Company was incorporated in 1903 and IBM in 1911, as also the date on which in 1904 Irish author James Joyce begins a relationship with Nora Barnacle and subsequently uses the date to set the actions for his novel Ulysses; this date now being traditionally called "Bloomsday" because of this historic act, Amitabh also bloomed on two different occasions- one in reality and other officially.
You may wish him happy Birthday if you feel like, with a rider that wish him good wishes only when you have a true and genuinely affectionate feeling towards him.
