dearest little sister

Two years back this very day my sis joined an MBA course in a city far from home. I went along with her for the admission process. Got her settled in the hostel and returned back with a heavy heart. Its was hard to let go of a sister 5 years younger into a world unknown. Earlier her big bro was always around, telling her what she should do and what not, which "guys" are OK to be friends with and which guys she should keep her distance from. In fact even that day I was measuring up the guys at the institute asking her to beware of the dubious type.

Having lived in a hostel for 4 yrs, I was keen on some knowledge sharing session. "Don't get into bad company and don't spend all time partying. And most importantly don't BOOZE", pearls of wisdom from big bro who knows all about hostel life and the freedom that comes with it. "Come on big bro, I am old enough to know", so she said. Yeah, I guessed so, it was time to let her go and let her be.

For the last 22 years I had been her idol (I am not bragging !), so as to say. Two years back, on this day, we started our lives independent of each other. It was hard getting used to life without her around for at least 2 yrs. Hmmm .... she had to pursue her calling and find her roots. I took recourse in the fact that this was bound to happen someday.

By the end of this month she'd be graduating. She's got a decent job with a French NGO. Finally she has been able to break free from my shadow and blossom on her own and I am proud of it ! Posted by Picasa

  • I can understand what you were going through..
    It generally happens with all the elder ones
    Its very hard for them to believe that their young ones are not younger any more....but for them we will always be kids through out their life!!
    This post tells bout you that u r very emotional person atleast for ur family....
    Keep smiling:)))

  • hmm.. you're a real caring and protective brother =PPP

    i always wish to have an older sibling, someone that really cares enough to provide sincere advice and guidance.. and someone older to fuss over the younger one (me)..

    A true blessing!!!

  • This reminds me of a poem I had read "Our children are not our own" which explained the plight of people who had to let go off their children who were in search for their calling or greener pastures.

    Not very many people talk about calling. Since you have mentioned it so specifically, maybe you would like to look at my blog named "Make your passion your Profession"
