I reminisce those gloomy childhood days when I was left unaccompanied against plots of my friends who had siblings. I always felt like I was an outcast. I had no one to play with, no one to bout, no one to trade stationaries and clothes with. Mom and dad would stay all day at work and when they’d come back they’ll stick to their business– I never got to jest with them either. My Grandpa and Grandma were too old to run after me and play. I stayed aloof and blue all day. I always wished I had a sibling to beat-up, to cry with, to play with and I also craved for someone to bear my weight.
After the heart-rending demise of my grandpa I was left with nothing but soreness. I only wished I had him back yet again. And then 6 months later Mom asked me to tag along with her to the doc she asked me if I’d be okay-if she told me she was pregnant. Tears trundled down my cheeks; I was full of life to know I’d finally have a baby brother. All I said was “I’d be the gladdest– But you have to assure me that you’ll tell the world I’m half his mom.” Those Nine months I spent canoodling her bump, I installed baby bump (An app that demonstrates the fetus–Growth, Weight, Appearance) on my phone, I devotedly read holy legends and math formula’s for the baby, I always knew it was a boy– consequently I kept showing mom pictures of cars and always kept her up late nights for football matches!
And then god, on 18th of October blessed me and my family with this amazing tiny bale of joy!
Talaank- He means more than what you call world to me. Today I kept pondering on the idea of my next blog post with him on my lap. I asked him should I tell everyone about you? He gave me a smile–one that costs a zillion bucks!
He is an honor to have….I love him to enormity.
P.S. Another brother I'am truly blessed with is Tapas ( My first cousin) he's the most vital part of my life. Him and Talaank are people I can happily die for. I will feature him next week(:
