Birthdays during a pandemic have been memorable in their own way; celebrations have become small-scale, guest lists a lot more leaner and everyone just seems to be reflecting a lot more on the little things, what's really important.

Umair Jaswal, who tied the knot earlier this year in October, has a lot to be thankful for.

Sharing a photo posing with his birthday cake, he wrote, "Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes. ALHAMDULLILAH for everything, friends, family, loved ones and all of you amazing souls! Your love and belief pushes me to do great things. Sending my love and prayers to all of you. Remember me in your prayers."

He concluded his caption with a shoutout to his wifey, Sana Javed aka "begum" as he lovingly called her: "Thank you for making this day and this year special."
