Well, a present is a token of love. Human beings distribute gifts with each other to show their feelings and affection. Some persons give items as a gift whereas some people give money as a gift.  Once a time, I also received a big amount of money. My grandfather gave it to me on my birthday. I explain it briefly.

Last month, my birthday was on 8 February and this was my 23rd birthday. My parents organized a party for me. In the morning of that day, I woke up early in the morning. Then, I wished to my parents as well as grandparents and gained their blessings. They gave best wishes to me for my birthday. I thanked them a lot. But they did not discuss with me how would I like to celebrate my birthday. I was astonished on this matter.

I got ready for college. I  had breakfast and went to college. There I spent time with my friends and all wished me for my birthday. As well, I studied there. In the noon, I came back to my home. But no one reacted about the birthday party. I sadly sit in my room.

Then, at 7:30 pm, My brother suddenly came into my bedroom and tied my eyes with a piece of cloth. I asked him what happened but did not tell me anything. He took me on the roof of my house. He took a piece of cloth from my eyes. I  felt so much astounded. My parents organized a surprise birthday party for me. I felt on the ninth cloud at that time.


They invited near and dear ones without informing me. Everybody wished me and clapped for me. I cut the cake which was baked by my loving mom because she has great culinary skills. That cake was mouth-watering. Then, everybody gave me gifts. But my grandfather gave me 75 thousand rupees as a gift. I was not ready to take it but my mother said to me that if any elder gives money as a gift to you, then take it without any excuses. Because they show their love through it.

Then, I took that money from my dear grandfather. He knew that I have completed my 12th standard and now I have a need for money to take admission in a good course. Then, I saved it in my bank account to use it according to my need.

All in all, That was the time when I received money as a present from my grandfather.
