"It was nice growing up with someone like you - someone to lean on, someone to count on... someone to tell on! " ~Author Unknown

What a rush!!! I just came back from a ride with my brother. It was awesome, awesome, awesome (that’s to emphasize on how gr8 it was :):)

I have wanted to go on a ride with Anna for God knows how long, but somehow could never do it, finally got a chance today :) n’ loved every bit of it---thanks Anna :):)
[This photo was taken by papa after we came back from the ride. As usual I am posing for the photo and Anna is giving me gyann about something :):)]

Well now that I have started thanking him...which doesn’t happen very often:):) let me write a little about my brother:):) or Anna as I call him---he is 3 yrs older than me and well, I have always adored him:)

As any self respecting elder sibling would do, Anna too made me believe that our parents picked me up from the dustbin and I actually believed him for 10 - 12 years, what can I say, I was a naive kid :):)

He beat me up regularly...used me to help him implement all his evil experiments....made me his guinea pig for some of the experiments....he calls me "boddi" cause he thinks I am fat(which I am not!!!:) other words he was your regular big brother :):)
Ok I do agree, I usually deserved the beatings cause I was a real snitch and as for the experiments, well I did tag along where ever he went (just like Mary’s little lamb:), so I guess I was asking for it most of the times:):)

As we grew up guess the physical violence changed into a more verbal fight. We would argue about almost anything and everything and drive mom up the wall :):)

He has given me my first Barbie doll..Dr Barbie to be precise (he already knew my obsession with the word Dr by then:), my first big teddy bear, my costliest watch till date and this super big Winnie the Poo bear (something I have to write about someday soon:)

It’s been almost a year since we have had a serious fight; guess we have grown up (though I think this is highly impossible :):)

I don’t want to give him fodder to pull my leg but I have to say this...Anna, I know I can be a pain in the butt at times and know you hate me for all the times I snitched on you:) but then if I don’t do all this who will right???:):)
Anyways, just wanted you to know that I love you so much and you will always be my hero:):):):)

PS: Anna, this doesn’t mean that I will stop troubling you ok...that’s like my janam sidd adhikar right!!!:):)

"To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family grief’s and joys. We live outside the touch of time." ~Clara Ortega
