Yesterday I was going through all the gifts and cards that I have received this year.No, could.I don’t get fancy presents on regular basis.I could.Well, who doesn’t Haha!! But yes since this year is about to end I wanted to take a sneak peek into the past and have a look at them.
One such gift (card to be precise)caught my attention was this beautiful card gifted to me on my bday this year by my didi many many months back.
Here in India usually we don’t refer our elder siblings/cousins/neighbours with their first names.This is taught in almost all the Indian households since a child is born literally.Many little siblings do not care to listen hence address one another with their first names or all sorts of stupid names on earth and then there are siblings like me who follow their parent’s guidelines thoroughly and address them with didi/ bhaiya/Dada or whatever it is in their native language.
Moral of the story is ,I call my elder sister didi .I have taken her name at times but then this is how I usually prefer adressing her .Afterall years of training by my parents is not going to go in vain .
She made a beautiful card for me on my birthday this year.I love and I guess most of you love handmade stuff and things.I was totally mesmerised by this greeting at the first place and started jumping with joy.
Also, I was apparently very curious to know on how on earth did she manage to make this card in such a less time.I mean she usually reaches home after 8-9 pm daily but still managed to find time to make this for me and weekends aren’t an option as we are usually together on weekends.
Guys, please pardon my photography skills.I am not at all into photography and stuff though I am looking forward to learning it soon.
For that, I have to buy a DSLR which clearly implies I need to save money which is a distant dream as of now.So obviously by writing this post I am clearly intending to convince the heck out of my sister to lend me some money in the form of a loan (which I am never going to repay literally ) for the camera.
Once I tried to talk to her about the same while we were sitting at home one lazy weekend and out of nowhere, we started talking about cameras and photography.Using all sorts of sugar coated words and a smile I asked her to lend me some money for a camera to which her reaction was something that I somehow never tried to talk about it.Hahaha .She acted completely broke and into debt as if she and her roommates haven’t paid their house rent since ages and it is me who needs to loan her money for bread.And eventually, I ended up asking her if she is okay and fine?
The truth is these elder siblings are a way to cunning and smart than us(more on the torture story later on).
But whatever it is, mind.I know she is the most protective and chilling elder sibling I could have prayed to god.We all have this idealistic image of an elder sibling in our subconscious mind.Many years back when I was a kid, I used to imagine what would it feel like 10-15 years from now.How my sister will turn out to be.Will she be cool enough or rather a possessive bossy one? Luckily she exactly turned out to be exactly like I had imagined all those years back.
PS I love u !!.Siblings are the best gifts our parents can give us indeed.
