Sisters

As a part of the Write Tribe Festival of Words which kickstarts on 1st September and will go on till September 7, I am writing about the 7 relations in my life, without even one of them my life would lose its meaning. These seven people are very dear to me and I hold them very close.

Sisters -

Unfortunately I am not blessed with a real sister, but I am blessed to be born in joint family where I have three. One is my paternal uncle’s daughter and two others are daughters of my two paternal aunts’. One paternal aunt stays in my own town so that way two of my sisters were always around. But it was the Diwali and summer vacations that I always looked forward to when all we siblings used to come together and have a gala time. We had our days planned well in advance. We used to play cards, dumb shears, and many other indoor games and they were no mug with cricket either. But the best time was our night rides. We used to hop on to our bikes and go around the town and visit the river side and take a long trip on the highway. It was sheer fun and the three were actually the musketeers. When together they were a bundle of latent energy about to burst. They would break into impromptu jigs followed by boisterous laughter for the silliest things they spot while on a ride and that would cringe the passerby. A mere burp or fart sounds would trigger them and they would start laughing raucously, which more often than not would land us in trouble with the offended person. They were a crazy bunch and alongwith us the combination would become lethal. We would get stringent pocket money, which was very little and so we never had much to spend, but that was never a problem. We would enjoy a lot within our limitations as each other’s company would compensate for everything else.


We are foods buffs and we love cooking, I mean me and the ones in the town, the others simply preferred hogging. We have tried our hands at everything from Indian, Chinese, Mongolian, Italian, Mexican, Thai and Continental. We used to make it the traditional way and then at times used to mismatch stuff as the wires of our brains would order us to do. Luckily for us there was no casualty and everyone survived and on contrary at times they would ask for more. This is one thing I thoroughly enjoyed doing with my sisters. I was however spared from washing and doing the dishes. (how sweet of them <3 span="">

Now two of them are married and settled in United States and Pune respectively, while the other one has secured a scholarship to study in Canada. It’s been a while that we have been together and I sorely miss them. I am eagerly waiting in anticipation of a reunion of sorts with my musketeers this Diwali.

When I would be lonely
& feeling down,
straight to me you would walk,
knowing to someone
I need to talk,
but still on you
I would frown

you would not sulk back
nor scowl,
instead would hustle me
change my mood fowl,
and tickle me to laugh

you count on me
and I on you
but not a chance
we miss to fight,
with slaps and bite,
it reaches a height,
but in the end
it always ends right,
with hugs very tight

you got married,
and now
we are miles apart
but however far you are,
I always find you near,
deep inside my heart


Love you girls
~ KARAN

  8. I too have that blessing of female cousins with whom I am very close - in addition to a sister :) My sis is in the USA and it is my female cousins who come to my help whenever I have a need - as when I fractured my hand.

  12. What a very sweet post. Family is whoever we take into our fold, right? I have a brother like this - not my 'real' brother, but my best friend since birth. I'm impressed with your love of cooking. Check out my Food tab on Grace Grits and Gardening for some of my favorite American & Mexican dishes:)) T.
