Its been 18 years since I’d been tying you many types of fancy threads, Popularly known as Rakhi, and its been 2 years since I have started couriering the best possible of it. Its strangely shocking to note that before today I never really realized the utmost importance of this event. In those 18 years, I’d been so casual that I never even thought the relation between a brother and a sister is such a pious one. No, I am not going to write highly of you or me because we both know how fake that would turn to be. Had it been in those 18 years and someone would have asked me to produce an essay on this subject, I would happily highlight all the negativities about you and how much I loathe you but now, I laugh at my thinking.
Our relationship was never an amicable one. As much my memory expands, I can only recall how poles-apart opinion and choices we had. I used to think how could we ever be siblings when none of our anything ever co-related? We had a fight on daily basis and our neighbours probably would have gone crazy hearing us.
I was always considered the a serious student, perhaps because my lack of interest in maths and science. I used to dread- and still dread- that ominous subjects. I am 100% positive, had it been not for you, I would have never ever scored 64 in Maths and successfully cleared Science with distinction.
There was a time when I used to be confused and irritated to see people affectionate towards you just because you opted for science and since I destined myself with Humanities- popularly known as Arts-and consequently everyone looked down upon me. Probably because it was agreed upon as a weak stream.
I wanted to prove that every subject is equally tough and its not NECESSARY to compare science with each and everything and also everyone should not base their opinion on what “others” say or think.
Luckily, I distinctly scored a 87% in my Boards and surpassed you to my amaze because I never believe I could out-do you.
Those were The Days!
Now, I… I feel weird of the passing days. Why did we grow up? How beautiful are those memories. I wish we had clicked more photos for every embarrassing event.
Living without you for 3 years made me realize your importance and how lucky and guided I am to have an elder sibling.
Your sisters are eagerly waiting.
Hope you good luck and immense prosperity.
