The Sister act
I am two years younger to my elder sister. When we were young, we fought countless wars to grab the biggest share of our world. Whatever be the format, time or place, we fought it out full throttle and seldom won. The war was drawn out even to the teen years. But when she married and went away, I felt really bad. Though I knew that she won't be competing against me anymore, I thought it was unfair
This morning, I returned after visiting her place. In the meanwhile she has had a kid who is now two years old and calls me Mama :) Last time I saw him and played with him, he was only one year old. Now he speaks very well and understands things. And every time he calls her "Mommy!" my ears become sensitive!
My biggest competitor, for whom I felt sorry at one point of time, has actually got an unfair advantage! I listened with curiosity, as he called her "Mommy" again and again :) It was a nice feeling. Even if a shred of our old rivalry remained, it vanished with this kid and this word
Picture: her love and my fascination.
