the Rhythm to this Nach...

its a known fact that i have spent most of my life surrounded by women. being the only male sibling until the age of 17 in the brawling bunch of 10 cousins on my maternal side, i have had a lot to bear. things were slightly better on my paternal side thanks to a few male cousins whom i could regard as my allies. but even there the sisters outnumber us brothers. in my family, the scales have always been very heavily tipped in the favour of the women folk. no wonder that male chauvinism is something that i grew up to regard with disdain and contempt.

MCP...definitely not me!!

anyways, what i am really hinting towards is that this post is for one of my very special cousin sisters. this one's for you Rhythm. well what can i say about her?? she's the 4th eldest (she beats me to that spot by 2 years) & the bookworm of this crazy bunch (actually i lay claim that position thanks to my insatiable appetite of consuming readable material). but she was the first to be diagnosed with that malady. we both read a lot. but she's the one who hid under the blanket to read her story books, shunned most outdoor activities and eventually ended up with em' specks. plus she ended up studying to be a dentist. so i guess that she fulfils the bookworm criteria far more than i do.

dear didi, i know that life is a bitch. but that's how things are here on this planet. so i just wanna say that you need to chill a bit. stop trying to please everyone. you do not have to live up to anyone's expectations...

just make sure that you live up to your own.
...you are an amazing and beautiful person and if people can't see that, then i have to say that they need to see an Ophthalmologist (do we have one in our family?? maybe Mithila should study that branch of medicine).

i'm so glad that you are doing so well in life. and always be assured that i got your back covered. after all i gotta start paying my dues for all those Rakhis that you have tied to my wrist all these years. i absolutely love chatting with ya & i know that its been a long time since we've met. but that just means that we have so much more to talk about. so be assured. once i am back in India, we gonna party hard.

you rock!! totally!! :)

now proove to me that 4 years of dental school were not a waste...go break some teeth for me...

ps: Palak and Rujuta are done with...now we have Anuradha next in line before we marry you off!!

...so make hay while the sun is still shining (*evil grin on face*).

aww... you're sweet. I am so tired of the gap between expecations and reality and the way parents feel like they have to impose the former on the latter.
