It’s your day

“Only I can wish you first!” I had exclaimed as I pulled her buzzing phone, ignoring her friend’s call. I loved holding that right on you, Didi.

In the past 24 years of our togetherness it was all about just you and me. Today on your 30th birthday, we aren’t together for the first time. I just could not be there. But I know there are others who shall shower so much love and blessings on you and make your day simply wonderful.

I admit if I had ever been so possessive about anyone, it was always you. My life was all about you and someone like me could not have deserve much. I found the best in you. Thank you for being what you were and are to me.

Now you are in your new journey of life, where you have found a lovable husband and a caring family. Surely, I am the happiest to acknowledge that your life is not anymore revolving just around me but it’s much more about you.

“Near, far wherever you are I believe that the heart does go on….”

That’s a line from the song you loved hearing whenever I sang. Our bond is as special as this song.

And special things in life are not bind by anything.

So, No more keeping phone on hold or snatching them. Yes, it doesn’t matter anymore that I wish you first or last. I just want to be one of that reasons among many to bring precious smile on your lips.

This Birthday pamper yourself with many sweets, chocolates, surprise gifts and a lot much because soon you’ll have to do the pampering. Certainly, no gift can match that sweet lil’ bundle of joy. And I can’t thank you enough for bringing in my life such a beautiful one, just like you, who shall be my adorable love.

I might have told you almost every time but still I want to let you know once again, I love you. I love you much more than anyone else. No distance, no reason, or any other relation can make any difference. You will always remain the best sister. Happiest Birthday Didi!

Yours forever,

Ishu ❤


Forsaken: love taken for granted

Sometimes we take love and relations for granted and Tanvi did the same mistake. She presumed nothing can separate them. Not even distance.

“You have no right to disrespect someone. “ She was harsh. She stood against her love, the love without whom her life was meaningless.

Her love was her brother Niket, her best companion. They had shared a complete life like the best of friends.

Niket, being a brother yet he had forever cared like a life partner. He was someone who completed her existence.

The girl who was fuming in anger, she wasn’t aware someday her love shall leave. All the years she had been selfish as he lived a life which was always about her, everything he did was surrounded by her happiness.

As her brother decided to leave and to begin to live his own life, that relates only him, the girl knew she couldn’t stop him. But she could not even thank him enough for giving a blessed dream-like-life.

Tanvi knew she had to let him go. She could not be anymore selfish to hold on him for own happiness. The happiness she never deserved because he had sacrificed so much throughout his life, only for her smile.

She accepted that it would be no more of him who’ll be sacrificing. This time, she’ll sacrifice. And she sacrificed her love, which was him, by letting him move on. She bid him bye with a smile.

She comforted herself by the thought that it was no separation but distance. She was happy for he and everyone else was happy with his decision.

Lately, She realized her life lost its reason and her only survival was her parents. She was never so close to her parents, like him. Having him by her side she never needed them much. But parents being parent, they had always been supportive in spite of her many faults.  She owes them and after him,  their happiness was her duty.

After long, today he was standing there in same house. She was supposed to be happy on meeting him. But her happiness was short lived when he reasoned he had come to raise a finger on their parent’s doings. He was under influence or misunderstood, she wanted to find the root cause.

“You have to trust for they care for you.” She said explaining him again over again.

The conversation went cold and it turned to be an argument, a huge one.

“If you can’t you may leave this house. “ She barked.

She was being rude and she knew was wrong to insult him. But she was playing the role of a daughter.

In her past, she had went against anyone to support her brother, even if that ever meant to disobey her parents. She loved him the most. But in her present, situation has changed.

She was alone and left with no option but to be against her own love. She ought to prove the sister wrong and the daughter right.

She had to ensure to support them, for they had forever cared so much for the person she loved the most, that was him, and she could not them down. Also she could not deny, it was them, who was mere reason he had entered her life once and gave her such beautiful memories.

Her words being said, she didn’t mean intentionally to hurt him but she happened to do that. She was ready for the punishment. But she didn’t know his reaction would be much harsh than the punishment.

He stood up to walk, leaving her dumbstruck. Her heart ached. Many thoughts rushed up in her mind raising the turmoil within her. Her parents objected and tried to stop him.

Her eyes met with him and she saw hatred in his eyes. She too hated herself.

She heard her mother devastatingly fell down. She saw her father in tears. They were hurt by his behavior. Every deed they did was in his concern and he was acting like strangers.

“I just wanted to let you know, your actions are destroying my new life” he spoke with no emotions.

She wanted to shout too loud and she even wanted to cry more loudly. The truth was reality had struck and she no more holds on the right on him.

She turned to calm herself.

Her trust on their bonding was broken as he left the house without even a single word. He didn’t care to tell or ask anything.

She heard her father worried. His brother was doing sick and he had left empty stomach. She wanted to run behind and search for him. She couldn’t. Her mother who had done that on her behalf too could not find him. His phone being disconnected and out of her reach. She lost him, she lost her answers she needed from him.

She realized she deserved none. He did right.

She was silly to assume worse can happen but it won’t affect them. They’ll be angry but won’t apart.

She had tended to change the situation by trying to explain him. But it was all in vain. She was no more a part of his new life.

She didn’t knew, he doesn’t need her or her complaint anymore. She didn’t know it was not him but life has affected their bonding. And it was better she change as the changed life demands her to accept the hard. She knew it was going to be tough.

She consoled her parents after getting to know about his whereabouts from someone else.

Her brother had taught her to be strong. She didn’t want to fall weak but she could not stop herself from crying silently in her pillow in the night hours. She cried not because it was hard to accept but because she couldn’t change her feelings. It still says, nothing else matters for she loves him.

The Date!

Some days occur in our life, only to bring a change. A big one!

It had to happen; we said we were prepared. Just when the reality struck us, we knew those said words felt mere words. It was easier when put in words but hard to accept while making it happen….

Oh, yeah we finally found your man, my lovely sister. My heart overflowed with emotions when I was standing next to my parents, watching them shed tears of happiness. The boy’s parents were congratulating them over phone. I quickly came to hug you tight, not letting you go, at least for the moment.

I knew I had explained myself hundredth times that I had to let you go to live your own life. I readily accepted the fact too. But while performing every task, in every action, at every steps, for every work; I realised my life would be empty without you. Yet I was happiest for I had already got more than my share from you. We have together lived so many years, sharing wonderful moments and also you had nurtured me helping me grow up responsible. I now can live my complete life strongly, memorizing us forever.

Instantly, I recognized, it was time for change.

I stepped back allowing the new family of yours, to stand next to you. I didn’t walk away but stood at front, glancing in your eyes. I wanted to watch you happily believe the change, while understanding I am still there for you, like always. I had to admit, you looked pretty with that glorious shine on your face, the slight glint in your eyes and the perfect beautiful smile.

I heard the loud voices, breaking my gaze, and I saw everyone exchange hugs happily. Your Roka ceremony date was decided. I embraced myself in arms of Papa, while he gently placed his hand on my head. It caressed me and I surpassed my supposed weak moment with a smile strongly.

Your Soon-to-be Partner, gestured me to join along, pointing towards you. I noticed you both together as I smiled. I even had to admit, in him, I gladly found the lovable and sweet Jiju I was searching. I grasped in the fact, on a sweet note that he valued you and our bonding too. I thanked to all those stars, blessings, love; each one has poured into my life. They have made my life astonishingly perfect.

14th February, The date was perfect for beginning of new start of a new life of yours. I delightfully engaged myself in preparations.

I acknowledged it was time for making that change happen. I wanted to live the change and make it splendidly magnificent for us.

And whilst living the change, I knew I even wanted to make it inseparable. I could not resist sharing.

Today, I typed it. Tomorrow or in future, I know you’ll sure read it with that lovely smile of yours.
