How to surprise others for birthday while being away from each other in this pandemic? / Long distance surprise ideas 2021/ Digital birthday wishes or surprise

 Are you thinking to surprise others for their birthday while being away from each other and without making much effort??

If you think so, this blog will definitely help you in making your friend happy even if you are away.

1.The video of wishes :

Ask your pal's friends and relatives to send their birthday wishes to you personally in any social media and collect it. If you wish you can also ask them to send videos saying happy birthday wishes to your pal. Compile all the wishes and videos together, make a video and send it to the birthday baby 😊.

2.The background change

Get a pic of your friend and remove its background while attaching it with another background. This can be done in home using 3 ways i.e power point, MS Word and paint 3d in a jiffy. 

Refer my detailed Youtube video about removal of background.

3.Birthday songs with names:

If you wish to send your buddy a birthday song with their name, you can make use of a website which I found easy and satisfied to use. Enter the name that you want, in the search box. The names appear related to your search. Choose the name that you want and download the birthday song. There are different types of birthday songs which can be used as a background song for your video.

4.Photo video making :

Make use of your chum's photos and make a birthday video with songs, emojis, text etc using apps. There are several apps found in Play store for Birthday video making which can be downloaded in Android. If you go with PC plenty of free online websites are available for photo video making which can be found by googling free online photo video maker or free online birthday video maker with photos.

I have given you some ideas about the theme of photos or order of photos.

For example:

*His / Her Photos taken on each birthday 

*No of Photos = Their age

*His / Her photos taken on best moments etc.....

5.The midnight surprise:

Make a Whatsaap group with your friends and add the Birthday boy/ girl in it.  Before the birthday of your buddy, start to send messages typing the minutes to go after 11:30.( 30 mins to go, 15 mins to go, 1 minute to go etc...) After each minute send them the mins to go one after another. After each 5 minutes send the photo of the birthday baby or any birthday quotes. Like this,12 am reaches and start to sent them your wishes , photos and videos. Give a chance to every member in the group to send wishes and do not forget to plan the minute count for everyone so that repetition of messages are avoided.

6.The Pic of The Date

Everyone may not have a chance to see their birth date in the calendar ( Daily calendar).So getting a chance to see it is always lucky. So I found a website called Tamil daily calendar in which the real photos of the daily calendar is attached in Tamil language .The daily calendar is only available from 2005. After submitting the date ,month and year we wish the image of the particular date can be seen. I have only found the website for the language Tamil. If you pass by websites of daily calendar in any other language please comment down so that it may be helpful for people seeing this blog.

Where is Ladakh, and information about the history, culture, tradition and lifestyle of Ladakh

 Ladakh is a desert in the mountains in the eastern part of Jammu and Kashmir. Very little agriculture is possible here since this region does not receive any rainfall and is covered in snow for a large part of the year. There are very few trees that can grow in the region. For drinking water, people depend on melting snow during the summer months.

Information, Culture, Lifestyle and history Of Ladakh and People of Ladakh
People here keep sheep and goats. The goats in this region are special because they produce pashmina wool. This wool is prized and pashmina shawls cost a lot of money. The people in Ladakh carefully collect the wool of the goats and sell this to traders from Kashmir. Pashmina shawls are chiefly woven in Kashmir.

The people eat meat and milk products like cheese and butter. Each family owns some goats, cows and dzos (yalk cows).

Ladakh was considered a good trade route as it had many passes through which caravans travelled to what is today called TIBET. These caravans carried textiles and spices,raw silk and carpets.

Buddhism reached Tibet via Ladakh . Ladakh is also called Little Tibet. Islam was introduced in this region more than four hundred years ago and there is a significant Muslim population here. Ladakh has a very rich oral tradition of songs and poems. Local versions of Tibetian national epic the Kesar Saga are performed and sung by both Muslims and Buddhists.
