To start with – you’re the best-est sister in the world. We’ve been together for more than 22yrs but it feels so less time. And I’m just the most luckiest brother in the world. Well, not just me. Even Mallu Anna, Pavi, Manju, Eshu, Ravi, Chimni – all are so much lucky to have you as the eldest of us. We love you all, to moon and back.
I still remember that BSA Ladybird cycle. When you were teaching me how to ride it, you’d run behind me to make sure that I shouldn’t fall.
I still remember my first and only prize I got in those school projects – the book on ‘The Nobel Prize Winners in Economics.’ It was all ‘coz of you. It was just the Kannada version of your English project on ‘The Places of Historical Importance in Karnataka’. You did all of it. And I just accepted the prize – that’s all.
Well, when I think about projects one dialogue comes to my mind – ‘Akka, first page maadkodu re’. This was all of ours dialogue and every single time you did it for us.
And then there were those trips, pani-puri sessions, those mood swings of yours(really! Your mood swings are very hard to deal with).
And those late night chats in your room – whether it was the last room when were in the ground floor or be it the central room after we shifted upstairs. That room is always yours.
Oh! How could I forget this. You have always been my designer. All the dresses I have are selected by you, Kaki and Pavi and they are always awesome. How do you do that? I hope you don’t mind selecting dresses for me even after you are off to your husband’s. 😉
And coming to the point that you’re going to live with your husband now. Chetan mama is an amazing guy. He’ll never let you miss us. He such a guy – he’ll keep you happie for the rest of your life – don’t you worry about that.
And if you do miss us, we’re not too far away. Just a call and we’ll be there.
Lastly, I want you to remember this – we’ve loved you for so long, we love you now at present, and we’ll love you forever and more.
