My greatest asset...

Ok here it is..
It is about a "he"
Biological age 26 years.
Mental age...sometimes 8..sometimes 5...
Goes by the name Anirban Kar...and I call him- Bro

Last Friday, he gave a long pending treat to our friends
When he got his GRE score, he said.."Let me get a good TOEFL score"
Then it was "CMU admit"
Then "Let me clear the Visa interview"
And then"Now I have to leave station to give a lecture on MISM in my college"

LOL....Finally when it was time for him to leave for Pittsburgh..(actually just 3 more days to go...)-one of my friends threatened.."Dada!!! Treat na diley bhalo hobey na kintu!!! (Won't b e good for u if u don't treat us)

It was initially agreed to be a quiet dinner at Geoffrey's
But then we (6 of our closest friends) got in a mood to shake a leg so we decided to go to a near-by pub

Around closing time I dedicated two songs to him and while I was making the announcement about how wonderful a brother he has been through all these years...taking my tantrums.. giving me a shoulder during the worst phase of my life..I could feel a lump in my throat .
I asked him to dance with me with the rest of the crowd in the house cheering for us... just the two of us on the floor

At the end I got one of "those" ideas..and I made him stand on a chair and dance in the middle of the dance floor.
My excuse-" I won't be with you on your birthday next let's celebrate now"

That is Anirban Kar for you..but for me- he's simply the world's greatest bro.

As a child, he had this habit to sing -"Phoolon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai..ek hazaar mein meri behna hai" and throw flower petals on me.. (sometime hibiscus petals in absence of rose:D )

But I used to retort "Only in ek hazaar:( "
And he would correct himself..ek lakh, arab..kharab..
Both of us didn't know counting more than I was happy and used to giggle for being valued such.

Ok..I was supposed to post this tomorrow- when he had left.

But I decided on posting it a day before coz
#1.Sunday is the only day I get some time for myself
#2.Kal karey so aaj kar
Aaj karey so ab
Pal mein prlay hoyegi..
Bahuri karega kab?

What if I don't live to see tomorrow?

I won't want this to be unpublished..

So it is... :)

A good mix of humour + siblings love.........true very true about the feelings.
Just can't put myself into ur shoes....but in today's era u can coin this world a FLAT territory (not geographically though) where nothing is unreachable.
So m sure ur bro is as close and available for support, talk of life and everything else, except being physically thr :)

A brother is a friend to
laugh with,
and a guide to turn to,
a brother is so special
in everything
he does for you.
