It’s been 23 years knowing you. The day I lifted you up in my arms as a teeny tiny baby was the first time you peed on me. Little did I know that was a sign of things to come. Since then, you have lit up my life with actual fires and filled my days with loud noise. The makeup practice sessions were especially endearing and have left me with several scars to cherish.
But Oh dear sister, the joys you bring to me have been of equal excitement. The pleasure of doing your homework, sampling your new recipes and the peaceful snoring that follows every night have just been blissful. I especially remember the day when I got to learn about the benefits of arranged marriage from dad, when I was given the honor of defending your boyfriend. Agh, nothing like a tight slap to burn the lessons down. Thanks sis!
I am sure your journey so far has been equally wonderful. Blessed am I, to have received such an early gift to cherish forever in my life. Let us call a ceasefire and celebrate another year of love and happiness. You mean the world to me, and after Mom and my girlfriend and a few other friends of mine, you are my most favorite person 🙂
With lots of sincere love,
P.S. – If you are reading this, then buy me some nice rakhi that I can show off proudly.
