There is no age for love or celebration. A recent video of an elderly couple where an old man can be seen singing ghazal on the occasion of his wife’s birthday has taken the internet by storm. The love-filled clip has been shared by a Twitter user named Rakhi Tripathi. While sharing the video, she has commented on her mother’s expression, mentioning how she has not passed a joyful expression throughout the clip while Rakhi’s father sings.

In the video, the man is wearing a white shirt which he has teamed up with light brown pants while the birthday girl is sporting an orange saree. There is a bunch of flowers kept on the table which might be brought for celebrating the birthday. Till now, the 45 seconds clip has been watched over 23 thousand times on Twitter alone.
A user remarked on the post recollecting her memories of the old man singing. The netizens said that she had heard him singing 17 years ago and also informed that he had lent his voice to her documentary on request.
Hey! Happy Birthday to Dear Aunty Tripathi Sir ki aawaz aur dil se gana gaane ka andaz waisa hi hai jo maine 17 saal pehle suna tha. I still remember that Qawwali "Kirpa Karo Maharaj"..On my spl request, Sir sang few lines for my documentary

Many people also took the birthday girl’s side and tried to reason out her expression. A bunch of people were of the view that she might have heard the man sing in a similar way many times and therefore, there is nothing new for her. Some also mentioned that maybe, because she is such a regular listener, she does not find the talent extra-ordinary. A separate user opined that the birthday girl’s interest would be in delicious birthday treats including the cake.
