Pallavi, I love you!

My sister got married on the 17th of this month. She’s off to a new adventure, leaving behind a trail of memories too strong to suppress. I wanted to wish her the best of luck for her new journey, and I know that she could not have chosen a better fellow-traveller than Pratyush ji.

I have loved Pallavi since the day she was born. I think her birth proves that even a 3 year old kid can have feelings of intense protectiveness. In my mind, at that young age, the abiding thought was simplicity itself – “She’s mine. No one mess with her.”

As we both grew up, the differences were readily seen. I was getting older, but she was getting wiser. She was the glue of our life, love for whom bound our whole family together. With her marriage, the glue that held us together may not be present daily, but its impossible to unstick the pages of history she has left behind.

The weird part is that the feelings I have for Saanvii are similar to the feelings I have for Pallavi. Yes, she’s only 3-4 years younger to me, and yes, she is a grown woman (a married woman now!), and yet the need to always guard them from any danger, any difficulty, still remains. While Pallavi may have a bodyguard in chief now in Pratyush ji, I’ll always be two steps behind her, scanning for any upcoming troubles and taking care of them before they confront her, till the end of my days.

My life is utterly, bitterly, incomplete without her daily presence.ย For someone who is not known for having words fail him, this is truly one time where I dont even know how to describe the maelstrom inside me.

Pallavi is my sister.

She is my life.

I love her.

  1. Every bit of it shows in your eyes, actions, emotions and expressions Bhaiya.. And you do it very naturally for your other sisters too ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Bhaiya.. I love you. And I’m gonna miss you each and every day. If Pratyush can love me even half of how much you love me, I’d be a happy woman. And don’t you worry.. I might not be living with you anymore but that’s the only difference there will be. I’ll still find a way to bug you and pester you from afar.

    You’re not just my big brother but also my friend and confidant. And because of you I have no fear of the future. Coz I know you’re always there to fix everything and make it right.

    I’m just a call away.

    Love you.

  3. Piyush bhaiya you have written so nicely for Pallavi di and I feel that it’s for all our sisters from all we brothers… ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This is so touching bhaiya!!! The song that you sang was the perfect fit for Pallavi … because someone who has a brother like you “ek wahi dhanwaan, baaki sab kangaal”

  5. Dear Piyush, you have very nicely expressed your protective brotherself. As a sister I can say that even after we leave our best of life and memories behind, it remains live in our heart at all times and the moment we step back in home, we become same as before …inside out. Our heart always long for pihar company and our soul always ask God for best for our brothers and parents..it is hard to put in words but I am sure you can understand it as you are now in same situation. Love, bhua.

  6. Piyush Bhaiya, you’re the perfect definition of a brother. Emotions wonderfully expressed bhaiya. We’re all very lucky to have you. Love you!
