Silver, ya.. but why the jubilee??

NOTE : those who are going to be 25 and those who are already, please don’t read the post. ๐Ÿ™‚ 25 years old. Quarter century. Given the average life span of an Indian is 62, what is there to celebrate when someone turns 25?! Why do people even call it a jubilee. I agree that […]
