I’m an only child and the closest thing I have experienced to sibling rivalry is fighting for my parent’s affection with my Dog, Chhoutu. He won that race hands down and by a big margin. While I didn’t have brothers to grow up with, I am blessed to have a doting Dada.
From trusting my with his mammoth Fortuner and fragile kids, to advice on career and life (and so much in between), Dada has helped be become a stronger and better person.
From dropping me off to college, discussing Malhar and poetry, bringing music and singing into our everyday, Dada (and Mau) show me what ‘joie de vivre’ actually means. Lavish holidays, luxurious lunches, with you and Maushi, I bridged the gap between Mora and Mumbai.
While some of our choices may not match (except for our absolute belief in the Chandi), it gives me faith knowing we are on the same team.
For two daughters that light up my life,
For the wisdom, the jokes, the insight,
For the mutual love of Faiz and a world of songs beyond Rafi,
For pure love and unflappable faith,
For being an inspiration and a benchmark,
There’s no doubt, my brother strongest! :) :)
