Feb 2016 Desktop Calendar: Sibling love!

Month of February... month of LOVE...
and there can be no other enduring love, than those of siblings.
Bothers and sisters fighting with each other through thier growing-up years.
Its a love-hate relationship that can go from hot to cold in matters of seconds, esp when one is young and hormonal...
one can be best of friends or the worst of enemies...
You can question God on why did He saddle you with such a loser of a brother/sister...
Try hard to ignore them when you are hanging out with your friends and the younger ones want to tag along...
But one can never get rid of that bond that runs in our veins.
And the bond only strengthens as we get older and realise that come what may, there is at least one person (other than the parents) who knows you, who understands your pain, shares your giggles and is always there for you... just a phone call away!

We are a brood of six siblings... five sisters, with just one brother squeezed in between us!
We either ignored each other, or fought like cats and dogs when we were younger...
tore apart each others books or broke up favorite toys in retaliation...
told tales to get the other in trouble but stood up to a school bully when the younger one came crying!
We shared bedtime stories, makeup tips and secret crushes...
we were each other's first beautician and hairdresser, to stylist and Agony Aunt all rolled in one!
and we always had each other's backs when the chips were down and times were rough!
We, like most families, have been through a lot, and one thing we have learnt over the years is that no matter the distance, none of us is alone!!
We are, and always have been there for each other.
even though we might even be continents apart, (now that most of us are married) but one hint of trouble and we all come running... alhamdolillah!
Our father's demise a couple of years back was the last time that all of us siblings were together under one roof and that wasnt a happy occasion...
But we got strength from each other's presence and the shared pain and loss.
That was then, and now we got together for our only brother's wedding.
The wedding was chaotic and frantic and FUN!!
It was from our ancestral home in our village and there were dogs and puppies, and turkey, hens, goats and what have you... with guests squeezed into every corner of the huge house.
It was fun, and it was mad-house crazy...
and before we knew it, the wedding was over and we got a new addition to the sibling gang... a bahu who is just as bindaas and kick-ass like us...  :-)
and in a month's time, along with our happiness (alhamdolillah) so did our household grow-with an addition of a Persian Cat and a rabbit as well...
They are there as well in the picture below-see if u can spot them!

So do enjoy the Big-Fat-Indian-Wedding Celebrations Desktop Calendar with my my sibling brood this February... made with a lotta love and nostalgia..
I wish we coulda got more time to spend together....and talk, and of course fight!!


just right click, save, and set as desktop calendar.
