My precious bond!
Today is rakshabandhan..and guess there can be no better day than today to thank the Almighty for the gift of a brother..sometimes when we face hardships in life we often feel that God doesn't love us He doesn't care..But then just look around the people He has given you and you will know He is there..that's exactly how I feel when I see my elder brother around...I call him Dadu...He stepped into this world four years before me..I have often heard people saying that the elder child gets very insecure and jealous when he/she is told of the second child coming into the family..and once this second baby arrives then begins a saga of sibling rivalry and non - acceptance..but as I always say I'm blessed..because for my Dadu I was never less than a prized possession..he used to love me,take care of me and holding me in his arms he used to proudly tell other"she is my sister"..My mom tells me that when I was born due to some complications I was not very pleasing to look at..my head was like a cone..[hahaha...sounds funny..ryt?]etc...and everybody was worried that if my brother sees me..he might start crying..but he was the first to welcome me with a smile...my weird hair do did not scare him..he held my wrist n said"lets take her home...soon"..
..well my head settled but then the usual brother sister issues started popping up..right from blackmailing,to pranks to fighting..and being punished coz of each other..but then we all get mature don't we..Today I share a beautiful bond with him..He shares his secrets with me..discusses issues...pampers me..and yes...not to forget he is strict about certain matters as well...which I conveniently filter[ahmm]...while telling him things at times..that's coz I know he is a brother at the end of the day...protective and possessive..but that's how I like him to be..He makes me feel secure and loved always!
I really love him a lot...I respect him...admire him..[waise i hate him also when he goes out for a movie and I sit at home and make his files].. but still I proudly say that,"He is the best brother in the world!"
Today he is miles away from me and I really miss him..but my prayers ,love and best wishes are with him always!
Luv u Dadu...miss u loads!Happy RaKhi!
