Today I  have received Birth Day Greetings and Best Wishes from many Comrades, friends and well wishers through e-mail/SMS/whatsApp etc. Yes,  my real birthday is 24th July 1938 ( official BD 12-06-1938) and my 80th Birthday falls on this 24th. I do not celebrate the birthdays and I am at Delhi today, away from my family.

I convey my heartfelt thanks and gratitude for all those who sent me their wishes. I will try to live up to their  expectations in my service to the working class and the underprivileged.
