The September 6 Kid

The mom shares her birthday with Sharon Stone and Osama bin Laden (snigger snigger!).
The dad shares his with Bryan Adams and Mahmoud of Ghazni (him too?).
But, the kid has managed to avoid the undesirable despots - and catch an entertainer of his own.
Roger Waters was born on 6th September too.

Since there was a slew of birthdays around the expected date of delivery, it was naturally expected that the kid would share its birthday with one of them. In fact, I subscribe to an unproved theory of traits getting shared by people who share birthdays.
So, the kid could have been born on the 5th of September - and been a fiercely independent spirit like Debanjana Chaudhuri.
Or, on the 9th - and been a diligent and dutiful person like Sameer Guha.
Or, on the 10th - and been fun-loving charmer like Arijit Lahiri.
Or, on the 11th - and been a study in humility and intelligence like Anirban Banerjee.
Instead, he chose to avoid all that - and have a date of his own.

And maybe a few years later, somebody else will hope that his kid is born on 6th September because of this guy... and that would be as much as I can hope for the tadpole, whom everybody is calling my son!
