Whenever I sit with my parents to talk about my childhood memories, I always ask: "Why didn't you take enough pictures of me that I could flaunt how awesome my days were?"
Today, when I see kids, or to be more specific, star kids, I get major FOMO. I mean, look at these guys. A few minutes after they are born, their pictures get helluva viral. They will have tales to tell people and images to show when they grow up. NOT FAIR.
I don't feel jealous, but I can see how far we have come as a generation. To all the star kids: I have felt the FOMO and I don't want you to feel the same. So, when you grow up and if you ever read, LIKE EVER, read this article, I am sure you would have that ear-to-ear smile on your face.

I remember the days when your mum would flaunt her bump on the internet and people would give a different kind of opinions for uploading a picture in which she is feeding you. Look, Bub? There were countless people who were cheering for you and your mum sending lots of love from all over the world.
Zack Lalvani, you are a gem.
WISH THEM ON: FEBRUARY 7
Yash and Roohi, I have always loved your father's movies. He often says that he likes to be surrounded by people who are younger than him. And, guess what, I realised he is a man who deserves to get all the love in his life, and you two are giving him the same.
WISH HER ON: OCTOBER 20
Hey, Radhya. Okay, so when you were born I was asked to write something about your parents who are so head over heels for each other that they literally celebrated your arrival by marrying once again. Yes, that's how happy they were when they had to welcome you in their family. Look how special you are!
WISH HIM ON: SEPTEMBER 10
I know the struggle of having an elder sibling but having two of them, well, it's both, a nightmare and a blessing. All I can say is play the game of being the small one really well Arthur.
WISH HER ON: OCTOBER 24
Hello beautiful, your parents tried to keep you away from all the limelight and attention because they wanted you to have a normal childhood. Guess what, I loved the way they did this.
WISH HER ON: SEPTEMBER 29
Years back, I read the book that your mum is holding in her hand. I have read her tales from Oxford and how the birth of your cousin Taimur and questions related to his arrival always irritated your mother.
Inaaya you have been blessed with a mother who has a way with words, use it wisely in your English projects.
WISH HIM ON: AUGUST 11
Azarius, I love your name. Your father might not be that active as an actor today but I know he will have a lot of DVDs to share with you. Trust me, you will have a big laugh watching his work in films like No Entry, Shaadi No. 1 and All The Best.
WISH HIM ON: NOVEMBER 15
Your aunt and your mum are the two bravest women and their equation with each other literally gives everyone goals on how a sibling should back the other one up.
WISH HER ON: MAY 8
Medina, you are already very famous. Few months of your arrival and you shared the frame with India's then-Prime Minister, do let me know what silent conversations you had with him when you grow up. (I might use them somewhere in my life and be as savage as Modi ji)
WISH HIM ON: MAY 20
Your mum's fanbase is quite amazing and I am the one. Get used to all the attention that you receive.
That's all guys, I know you are feeling proud of your parents, so do I.
