Ever pondered on relationship of two sisters ?They are the best of friends,philosophers and guides.They often seem poles apart,but they belong to the same "magnet".Adversity makes them think and act like one.Prosperity allows them to hold hands together even while fighting with each other.
I have some experiences to substantiate the above lines.My sister is three years younger than me.When I took up engineering,the biggest problem that arose was I was complete novice to programming.After all,its not an easy task to master programming in 3 months.My little sis' showed her acumen then.She enticed me into C and I followed her.I can hear her
voice even now-"Thats enough rest,you have 4 more codes to write."She became my teacher-an actual role reversal.When I was sad(usually I yell at the top of my voice),she said something which made me feel better.She
has a large role in making me feel confident about myself.
I also recollect the days when she was a primary schooler-whenever there was a competition,be it essay,debate or quiz,she would always run to me and say,"Listen,my topic is so-and-so,please write it in fifteen minutes,then I'll get it by-heart."I almost always wrote for her.On one ocassion,the teacher admired "her" essay a lot.She came home,congratulated me and said,"I was so nervous when Ma'am was reading the essay.What if she asked me the meaning of the difficult words you've written?" I was flattered but laughed really loud.My God,what a girl is she !Even now I write her English answers(once in a while).
An absolute loving family is a rare gift,only for lucky ones.I think I'm blessed to have such a family and a doting little sister to be cared for.Her birth is the biggest "miracle" of my life.I dedicate these lines to her:
"When I'm happy,you add to my joy.
When I'm sad,you don't let me cry.
We are made to help each other.
We are two special someones."
(Hey,I have written a poem,all by myself.Viola!!!!!)

u've got an award anwesa cum grab it
but it is on my blog that's awful
Keshi said…
My sister and I had the most turbulent r'ship since we were babies. The reason for that is my sis is the very opposite of personality. She's quiet, calm, reserved and less outdoorsy. Im loud, open, flashy and annoying. lol!

But lately we hv become the closest we could hv ever been. Which is a sign of maturity, understanding and real affection.

yes sisters are the best! :)

Lovely post here Anwesa!

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.

I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.

I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
Note : This was one of  the earliest poems I read,loved and cherished.


Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

Amidst Soul-lessness

There is smoke somewhere. 
I cannot seem to figure out where. 
The lights are here, the music is here.
Has it been home here ?
Perhaps. Maybe when it did not rain.
Or maybe when it rained and it did not matter.
Maybe when I walked alone, smiling to myself. 
Or maybe when I realized I was okay.
Had it been always like this ?

Not really. 
Things clicked, took effort and blood. 
Did I do it ? Or the beasts did ? Maybe we both together,
Played this game. 
Amidst soulful solitude, it was love. 
Maybe appreciation.
Another journey, another dry spell. 
Will it ever be home again ?
