                     "  Rakhi - for my brother  "

Threads of Rakhi twined in love,
Connote a sister's love for her brother,

Love that got obscured in busy life,
Distance progressed as we adored our families,

But only seemingly parted, 
Souls still one and a single thought,

Born of one mother, lived 
together for years
Celebrated, faught, annoyed, 
conciliated and understood each other,

Endeavoured on all topics,
Lived by each other in all thick and thin,

Childhood days are not just memories,
But to cherish and a reason to live,

Some family values, expressed by subtler gestures,
And immersed Into these fragrances..............

Are tender strings of Rakhi.
