I asked him what the letter was and he told me it was a happy birthday. I told him my birthday is May 30, five days away but he told me the letter is for you and he even read it to me. I was very surprised. Why would Dutt Sahab send me a birthday letter five days before my birthday? And in the past we’ve never exchanged holiday greetings – be it Diwali or Christmas – why would he write to me? ”He said.
In the letter he said, “Dear Paresh Ji! May your birthday come on May 30, and may you wish me happiness, prosperity, and good luck in life that God will bestow upon you and your loved ones. ”
