Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi is one of the most widely celebrated festivals in India that reflects the love shared by a brother and his sister. I always wanted a sister and the almighty lord heard all my prayers and blessed my family with a little princess who entered this world with a smile. She was a little bundle of Joy. If I had superpowers I would have captured those innocent little smile and the twinkling eyes forever and arrested them in my memories.
Such is the love that I have for my sister. Being a protective brother, my sister means a lot, in fact, she is my world, my bundle of joy! There are many things happening around – many good and many bad but life planned to twist our world and make it complicated. I am not here to say the complicated bit but to share the happy part of our amazing life!
Little Bundle Of Joy – QUESTION 1: WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE FIGHT YOU’VE EVER HAD WITH YOUR SIBLING?
I was 7 years old and my baby sister was 1.5 years old then! I was fond of chocolates and sweets since my good old young days. Our parents were working and hence our Massi raised us. During the early 1990’s we used to get a sweet item whose name I don’t remember. It was basically a tube of flavored ice rolled in a plastic tube like substance. Many would call that as Pepsi and many called it by various names.
I used to gulp over 5 of them at a given time. Such was my crazy love for sweet items. It was one of those days when I was getting ready for school. I spotted my cute innocent sister gulping the plastic tube of flavored ice with complete alacrity. I held her in my hand and quickly grabbed the ice cubes she was eating and gulped it. She became furious and she did something that I could not forget for the days to come.
She bit me on my arm and left an imprint of her tiny little teeth and dug too deep into my muscles. That pain was excruciating and being a baby no one could scold her as at that tender age no baby would understand right and wrong. I had to quickly rush to a doctor and get an injection and bandage.
Twenty-Two years passed and I still have those scars on my arm that reminds me of that incident. I miss those days and sometimes wish we time traveled to that period. Life was sweet and beautiful then with no fear of the future. Life was festooned with awesomeness and happiness.
QUESTION 2: WHAT IS THE MOST MEMORABLE GIFT YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED FROM YOUR SIBLING OR GIVEN TO YOUR SIBLING?
In this materialistic world where people crave for happiness and love, I got the best gift to send by God in the form of a princess. No material object or gift would measure the amount of love that I hold for my sibling. She is precious than a diamond to be. Not even the most expensive item in this world would ever come close to the love that we both share. Honestly, I have never bought anything precious for my sister.
I have gifted her gold items, mobile phones, and accessories but more than that God has given me the greatest gift in my life and that’s her. When momma placed her on my lap for the first time, I had the greatest responsibility. It was then I promised myself that I would take care of her and will be there for her during the happy and the worst times. I would be a protective, loving, and a caring brother.
I just have one wish to god that he listens to all her wishes and prayers and make all her dreams come true. May he translate all her wishes and dreams into reality and listen to her prayers. I pray to the almighty Lord that he grants her with good health and happiness. This year I am miles away from home and I can’t express in words how much I miss my family and my adorable sister.
I love you mum, dad, and Anu and I miss you three the most. I wish I was around you but I’ll be home soon. There isn’t a single moment where I have not remembered you! Thank you, Lord, for giving me an amazing family. Love you Appa, Amma, and Anu! Hope to blog soon!
