One is blessed to have a brother like you

One is blessed to have a brother like you

I was flipping through our old album pics while sipping a cup of coffee. I was wondering how time has passed in a blink of an eye. We used to hold each other's fingers and went to school.  When he used to sit on the backside of my bicycle and rush towards the school saying “come on di, move fast, we’re getting late for school.

There are unforgettable incidents when we cooked together. Undoubtedly, he makes an amazing pasta and sandwiches. I learned those dishes from him only. After my marriage, I miss those times at the dining table when he and me used to share our common dishes like having sandwiches, tea and chole bhature and our all-time favorite special lemonade prepared in soda water, etc. 

I cherish those moments when I used to plan surprise for our mother with some gifts and he used to bring them all in the excitement. We both loved to pack it uniquely and gifted to our mom. That was the feeling none other than like “an award-winning” moment when our mother appreciated our minor efforts for her.


How can I forget those college days when he used to pick me up? Later while coming back from office. And, of course! Not forgetting, sometimes, I made him wait for me for so long. However, he taught me how to drive a two-wheeler but my bad luck! I never showed the willingness to learn and never paid attention to it but i appreciate all the efforts done for me by him.

Time has flown up quickly. He, who was the naughtiest among all the family members, now has become a responsible one. He has turned into a mature and wiser person now to handle business responsibilities to be shared with our father and to handle household tasks. Whenever I talk to him, he is the one who advises me on how to do things and about the latest trends related to gadgets in the market.


He is the younger one in the family but his suggestions are being appreciated by everyone. He takes care of everyone and never misses a chance to surprise everyone and makes the environment more lively with a joyful personality.

He used to spend time with our grandfather by chatting with him, by communicating about his daily routine and life, etc. He helps Mumma in the kitchen by serving dishes and other household chores. He spends time with papa by playing guitar such as papa loves to sing and record his audio.


He is the one who is more excited to meet me now rather than my parents, where we share many things, and yes! We go on a drive along with my daughter who just feels excited by saying “ghumi ghumi” The last but not the least, the relationship with his brother-in-law is more like a friend, they spend good quality time whenever they meet like partying, playing cards together, playing table-tennis, and polo, etc.

He miss not even a single chance of making everyone laugh. And, this is what I really admire about him.

If there’s someone whom I missed the most after my marriage, then he is the one.

He is the one who cried the most in my vidaai, 

he is the one who missed snacks made by me. 

he is the one who missed teasing me.

Despite many fights, we still have our “attachment theory”. No matter how much we fight or argue, but in the end, we have mutual respect. As we grow up, we, the brother and the sister, have a little room in each other’s hearts. 

I wish you all the love, happiness and success in the world. May you meet the love of your life soon.

Now, Raksha Bandhan Celebrating on August 3 (Monday),2020 is the time to reflect on the bond we shared. It’s time to cherish all the childhood memories spent together.


It’s time to recount our blessings and to share those funny experiences with our bhabhi and Jija who’re recent additions to the family just to make them laugh. May the brother and the sister relationship be always special. 

May all the brothers and the sisters in the world share the bond always.


At the end, I would just like to say that Thankyou brother for everything.

Yes! It's been Three Years of Togetherness

I woke up in the middle of the night and looked at the phone,

 realizing it’s June 29, 2020 today.

It's our third anniversary today. A special one because this time, 

we’ll be celebrating it with our 17 months old princess.

I got excited and was rewinding all the memories from where it all started. It still feels like our first anniversary which was full of excitement, happiness, positive vibes n blessings. 

Like any other girl, I was also excited about my process to find the idle boy of my life. I still remember those days when my parents asked me to be prepared to meet the boy the next day. In excitement along with the nervousness. 
somehow I and my family managed to prepare all my things from clothing accessories to make up many questions were in my mind like what would be their reaction after seeing me, what expectations did they have of being an ideal Indian bahu, whether I will be suitable to their family or not? but I was confident. I was prepared..because that was the time to get married and settle down. I prepared my mind for it.
But everything went well from the meeting point; both families interacted with each other and the boy on the first day. 
Yes! I and the boy got less time to know each other well. Thus, we decided to meet the next day at the cyber hub. We wanted to meet to discuss our future goals, likes, and dislikes, to see if we match the compatibility or not, whether we will be able to understand each other or not?
We are in the middle of doubts and confusion. We decided to give time and attention to each other in terms of fulfilling all the requirements to avoid any dispute or distraction in the future. We spent about 5 to 6 hrs with each other clarifying all our doubts. In the end, we both came to the conclusion but we didn't show our emotions but our heart knew it was “yes”.
There was a feeling that we have found our soulmate.
Fingers crossed! I always dreamt of finding my dream man who should be soft-spoken, a good decision-maker, and enjoy life to the fullest.yes! My heart knew I have found the perfect man of my dream.thanks god for showering your blessings or grateful to god.
After reaching home and discussing with our parents, the confirmation was done from both the families in a moment.
Our heart was beating a little faster, a new life would start by. Everyone was excited and got busy getting calls from relatives for all their best wishes. That was the moment to be cherished forever. the parents had tears of joy.
Everyone was happy.
This is also one of the best reasons for our parents to smile that they’re delighted because of us.
We had 5 months of break from the Roka ceremony to our marriage in which we got enough time to plan out everything. It was very hot but the excitement was more than heat. We continuously sipped our lemonade and allowed ourselves to enjoy the shopping, to plan for the pre-wedding shoot(on deciding the venues, costumes, props, themes, etc), mehndi functions, bhaat function, ring ceremony and the D-day I.e our wedding, everything went well as per the planning. Only a girl can understand how much courage it takes to leave her home/to say goodbye to the family with whom we have spent many years but now going into a new family and accepting their cultures for the life ahead.
Thanks to god.  I’m blessed with supportive in-laws who never made me realize that I'm the new member here in their family. I was provided with all the facilities and was taken care of well.
I always dreamt of finding my dream man who should be soft-spoken, a good decision-maker, and enjoy life to the fullest.yes! I have found the perfect man of my dreams. Thanks to god for showering the blessings upon me.
Everything seemed so beautiful. who doesn't love to be pampered being a new daughter-in-law who is always treated with new sweet dishes, roaming around here and there. We all knew this was the phase where we all were spending time with each other to understand and to accept the way we are. things were going fantastic.
Gone are those days when a sister in law was known for back bitching but nowadays they're more like a friend. so, I'm again blessed here. They’re like sisters and always make the environment happier with their presence. 
My husband and I explored many new places, restaurants, events in New Delhi in the first year of marriage and time passed away in the blink of an eye. It was our first anniversary which we celebrated in the roseate resort, nh8, gurugram. We stayed there overnight and explored it, spent time well with each other. this was again cherry on top of the cake.
Now, after the first-anniversary celebration, another fresh year started with new blessings.
yes! I am expecting by now. We're pregnant.  Everyone was overwhelmed by the news and we were nervous to be a first-time parent. how would we manage all these things, we were not sure whether it was the right time or not but with our family support we went all through it beautifully. The trimesters were mixed with different emotions but it was all forgotten once the baby arrived. yes! we're blessed with a baby girl who just looks like her papa. Hahaha!
Every moment is beautiful when you're with your newborn. you just look at him/her that how these tiny hands, toes, little fingers mark their presence in our lives and we feel empty without them once they enter our life. It's rightly said by someone that the blessed are those whose first baby is a daughter. This makes sense to me now when I have one.
Relationships are supposed to have ups and downs in our life after having a baby, we get less time to spend with the partner as more of time is being demanded by the baby. But we learn to manage it with time. both the partners and the family put an equal effort to understand each other and adjust accordingly. 
An anniversary is a time to cherish all the moments and the time spent together and make a fresh beginning with a new perspective. 
yes! one shouldn't forget how blessed we are with our life partner and always appreciate n count on your blessings. This anniversary is the perfect day to count on blessings, to have respect for each other, and to appreciate each other's values, accept the imperfections and ignore them.
let the adventure of life be enjoyed together.
“life is beautiful together”
it's okay to have a little argument but in the end, he/she is the one whom we look up to.
Now, my 17months  princess, she entertains us by her dancing moves, by following us, by making different voices and doing unexpected funny things. We feel blessed every day by just looking at her. My princess has planned many things to surprise my husband and her father.
Eagerly waiting to watch his reactions on our surprise!!!
