My dad, Ratilal G. Patel or Ray as some of his friends know him as, turns 70 years old on June 1st, 2012. However, that is not his real birthday. His real birthday is unknown as his family was so poor when he was born that matters of survival were more important than noting the date of his birth. My sister Nita and I wanted to document his life and give him credit for taking the chances that he did to make something of himself and provide for his family. He has been an inspiration to many and we showed this video at his 70th Birthday Party, to all the family and friends gathered, which was held on March 26th, 2012. There are many more people than shown in this video that have touched his life… but those pictured for the most part, are the ones who would be in the room that day. The story is told from the point of view of his only grandson, Neil Patel.
