Thats what I call him. My day started with his call today morning, wishing on rakhi and telling me he got both the sister's rakhi just on time this year. And he also told me of the seviyan mom has made..
I went straight into the kitchen and got ourselves seviyan made too :) And that was our rakhi celebration.. :)
This is our last yrs rakhi plate, there are letters, fruit, tulsi leaves, local chocolate of kumaun along with the usual stuff. There is my rakhi, all those recd in post and the janeu which these guys are supposed to change today as they have had their thread ceremony done. So it has amit's and manu's.
Sometime festivals make new memories and at times they bring in nostalgic moments. I have a super stiff neck today which is limiting my movements so all I can do is sit and think and smile in memory of times spent together and maybe shed a tear or two in between..
Today is our 3rd rakhi after I got married. Dont remember much of the first one, last year we were together- infact were coming back from our memorable valley of flowers trip together and this year I did an online order for a rakhi set with kaju katlis that were delivered to him a day in advance.
I wonder at how time changes. How we celebrate relationships may also change. Things I once took for granted to be around me are being missed today. But my love for my bro will never change. If at all, it will only increase.
Bless u manu, the menace.. plan your trip here soon for my list is ready :D
Edited to add seviyan pic :) for the likes of dhiren-rakesh-masood and all those who would like to drool over it.
