I realised that I have been writing a lot of stuff related to LIFE and how could I just forget to mention here about these TWO personalities who have made such a great influence on my life. Does one really need a "Mother's Day" or a "Sister's Day" to tell them how much you love them?
Well.. I am sure, by now you would know who they are? She is the one who has brought me into this beautiful world, my Aai (mother) and Tai (my sis) with whom growing up has been wonderful.
It's been soo many years now but all seems like it just happened yesterday. Today too, as I flip through some old family pictures, I remember all the childhood days vividly. (As filmy as it may sound, but it truly happens to most of us quite often....you grow up only to get into the flashback mode..very much like a Karan Johar or a Yash Chopra movie). I still recall all those sisterly fights, being at loggerheads all the time..the bugging and hugging, sharing secrets and funny stories (now we laugh about thinking it not to be funny anymore) and her being my partner in crime :)
With Aai, the mother- daughter relationship took a different meaning in my teens. I sensed the transformation in Aai from being a strict disciplinarian to my best friend. I would always be at the receiving end when it came to her discipline (the brat that I was then, not anymore ;)). But no regrets, today she has helped me become a better person.
As years passed by, I have realised that both these women have played a vital role in my life...today they both are my bestest (if at all there is such a word in English) friends, my ultimate confidantes, my unwavering supporters and my strength.
The support, affection that they both have given me goes beyond words. I could not thank them more for all the unconditional love. Today, I see Tai as a reflection of Aai in true sense (now that she is a mother too), I would definitely like to dedicate this video to both of them.
