Today is my little brother's birthday. And a very special one it is too. He is turning 30 today, no longer my little bro. But then I guess he will always be that little boy in my heart. I so clearly remember the phone call which announced his birth. Me going to see him for the first time in the nursing home. How he was wrapped up in blue and he was such a cute & tiny bundle. The thing I most remember about him was his tiny little fingers, which he used to curl around mine.
To tell you the truth, I was a little disappointed when I was told that I have a brother. I wanted a little sister to play with. But as we grew I realised that in the long run it really did not matter. Brothers were as good as sisters and super fun too. We are totally different personalities, but that never came in our way. In fact I think that strengthened our bond. He is one of the nicest things that happened in my life. And he may be younger than me, but no less wiser or mature! Happy birthday Soumitra!
