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 ❤


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.  

Unplanned yet we planned!

Never thought my day today would be such an awesome…

Every time I meet you, I feel blessed, for every time you make me feel special by your mere presence and along you, even the moments feel extraordinarily special.

Nothing was different; it was same you and me, in the similar usual manner I waited for you and just like before you surprised me by your arrival. Even today I turned to find you standing there teasingly smiling at me, apart from the fact you had more luggage today. I wished to help you, but it was heavier than I expected them to be. I admit that you are strong.

Like always I found myself confused in deciding where should I take you and felt sad for I had to stick to the nearby restaurant, as I am unaware of my own city. I accept I am not very much like Delhi girls. Maybe I don’t admire roaming around, for that would be much of my alone trip, which is a bad option and boring too.

Well, my motive was to fill up ‘your’ stomach as I knew you must be tired and hungry but seems like you twisted it a bit, filling up ‘my’ stomach more than usual. Sadly, I felt over eaten today and still have to finish my lunch, prepared by my sister just for me. Ah, I really should learn to say no or maybe you should stop looking cute, while pleading me to do anything. I melt easily at your words.

Our silly talks, our laughs, our exploring the people around, our sharing of sweet lil things, our teasing attitude towards each other- everything we did together, after we left for our different destination, I miss them all.

The last few minutes of our meet, they were surely different in this encounter of ours, for I found myself more of upset I knew I had to leave, unknown of the fact when I would be meeting you again. I don’t know why but I seriously felt I could give you tight hug and let you know, you are my best friend. We meet or not, we talk or not, you would always remain in my mind and heart. It would be more appropriate to say, you would always mean life to me, for my life is certainly incomplete without you.

But above of all, I am glad we managed to meet another time, even in our odd schedules. Just want to end up saying I truly adore you, for forever being what you are- a lovely, caring, understanding and trustworthy person.
