Finally touch that Awesome Mark!!!

Hi, this is hmmm well I am Bhaskar’s elder bro on visit to his blog through direct “heavenly satellite connection”. 🙂 WordPress informed me that my brother’s blog is finally reaching the milestone of 250 posts. So thought last few posts the fellow has been making very serious ones, how about hijacking the blog and telling you all on this occasion about this fellow.

My brother was eleven years younger to me. Being the youngest member, he was always the one who would make rules, break rules and amend the same as per his requirement. His innocent smile and *fake* sulky face, they used to be the best ominous weapon he possessed and with perfect skill used the same with precise alacrity.

The Issues we had: To be frank, whenever I and my brother would talk, it barely took ten min for turmoil to start. Thanks to our (his more) creativity, we would always come up with new topic to fight. Trust me, even in selecting a topic to fight, we would have a fight. Sometimes, I just feel we have more number of issues than probably, India and Pakistan have.

My brother’s Skill set:  “Good lord, save the world”

Blackmailing skills: If ever, there were a noble prize in blackmailing; my brother would have been winning it for last 30 years undisputedly. He has such a photographic memory that whenever he wants something from me which I am not accepting, he’ll just open the account book of my life, would pick up one unfavorable ghastly mistake that I did before (say even a decade back) and the next moment, he’ll pretend to stomp towards Babuji mumbling that today he’s going to reveal everything.

Still remember, I got one New Year greeting card from one girl (who was not even my girlfriend) which my bro, somehow, discovered. The next thing I remember is for the next 2-3 weeks he made me do all his maths and science homework and practical works. Condition applied: he won’t tell it to Maasa.

Acting Skills: I bet 20 on 10. Whenever he is losing any argument (very rare event indeed, you have better chances of seeing Haley’s comet than to see my brother loosing, though heard at heavenly quarters these days he is losing to someone and I really congratulate that person – Minnie Gupta.), he’ll gradually drag the venue of fight near to the place where our Mom is sitting and henceforth either of the two under-mentioned case would ensue:

1. Suddenly, within a minute, he may start crying with REAL tears. 2. He’ll somehow bring me inside the hullaballoo as a result of which now the whole focus is shifted to me. In either case, it’s Game Over for me. Within a fraction of second, the focal points would shift and ultimately, I am the one over which the sinister flash light would now get aimed. Needless to mention, next few hours would gets wasted in convincing, pleading and begging my mom that nothing like this happened.

Biased role of elders: it’s an unwritten law. They always take the side of the youngest. Whenever we are having an argument, my whole family will support my great brother. Trust me, I have lost even a debate “who is more important, School Principal or Prime Minister” even though I supported Prime Minister.

I guess if I continue penning down every incident, I may end up writing till eternity. So let me stop here for today. Have a good day everyone.


Those lines above are just to show what bonding I had with my Bhaisa. He was a Gem of a person and yes even today I would give anything to get him back to my life. He had a beautiful side and he could never see tears in my eyes. True, so many times I took advantage of the same. Every step he would try to make sure I am comfortable. I still remember, he got hurt after a football match in college and the very day we missed our last bus home. I was tired after school and found walking home difficult. He never mentioned the pain, instead picked me up on his shoulder to reach home. Next almost a week he had to stay on painkillers after the incident. He helped me memorize all the answers of history, civics, geography (and even maths and science) during board exams. He was a wonderful brother!!!! So this post I thought of dedicating to this incredibly awesome brother of mine!!

And let me also thank all others who visited this blog time to time. Posted comments and even inspired me to carry on with writing. I know I am at times difficult, also naughty. I love pulling your leg, I love irritating you all, I love making you all laugh. But I am also there for you all whenever you need me. Thanks for always being there. Many a times I felt like closing this blog, but then without fail I would get a message from someone, asking about the long break. And result, I am again back here. Thanks everyone for keeping me going, you all are equally, infact are more the reason why I could reach this 250 mark. And thanks WordPress for giving me this platform. 😀 And Special thanks to Adi, he was the one who made me, inspired me to start this blog!!!!

In a nutshell I can say today – Tedha zaroor hu; magar aap sabka hi hu!!!!

And also let me take the opportunity to wish you a very Happy Lohri.
