Devakrishna
At fifty death is coming nearer, and you must have felt it that night, because whenever a birthday comes a subtle feeling of death arises. To suppress that feeling we celebrate birthdays. Whenever a birthday comes, on that day it is impossible to forget death. To help you forget, friends come and greet you and they say, "This is your birthday." Every birthday is a death day, because one more year has gone, death is nearing. In fact a birthday is not a birthday, cannot be -- death is approaching, death is coming nearer. Time is slipping fast through the fingers. The very earth on which you are standing is being pulled away. Soon you will be in the abyss. A birthday is a death day. To hide it, to suppress it, the society has created tricks. People will come with flowers and gifts to help you forget that death is coming nearer -- and they call it a birthday.

The first day is not the birthday, it is just the beginning of the process of birth, and then you will be born and born and born and born. Again and again in a thousand and one ways you will go on growing. The process ends only at death, and that too, only apparently.
