My non-biological sibling


Year 2017, Pune.

I was about to go out of some important work, then Kiran (my flatmate) gave a voice saying, hey lakshmi, ‘I have a friend who has a very good friend coming to Pune and needs a place to stay’, can I call her to stay at our flat? I said ‘yes of course, no problem’, and I went out in a hurry.

When I came back I saw a small height,  chubby girl sitting on the bed, Giving me the introduction, Kiran said, ‘this is the girl I told you about’, And then she extended her hand and said, ‘Hi My name is Geetanjali’. I too moved my hand and said, your name is very beautiful, and she smiled.

We had our first meeting just like this, and then, this chubby girl with a small height became a geet for me from Gitanjali, and I became Lakshu for her from Lakshmi. From since then, we have shared passwords, shared food, shared laughter, shared tears, shared memories, shared dreams, shared heartbreaks and screen shot. There was nothing left that we did not share. So basically she is not just my best friend, she is my non biological sister. If I have earned anything in the last few years, then she is this girl. I am 26 years old, this is the most precious thing in my life that I have earned, And  I never want to lose it.

By the way, every time, I have shown her how important she is to me. And she also knows this very well. So the thing is that now that day has also come, for which I was very happy, but even more sad to lose, that is my bestie’s wedding.

If seen in the same way, Indirectly this meant that, the right that I had on her would be taken away from me. Or you can also say that the part that came in my life, I also have to give that part to someone else. It was not that I did not lose anything before, but if I lose her too, then I will have nothing left. But it was decided. And the thing was about my bestie’s happiness, I too was happily prepared.

On the one hand I was very happy that my bestie has found a partner with whom she will move forward in her life and be happy And from the other side also sad that now our relationship will probably not be the same.

But Now I had to explain to myself that these are all right, because I too had left her in a city where we have a lot of memories.

Now the problem is that I had come home, And I have a phone anxiety, so I cannot talk more, though both of us did not need it because we can talk a lot  in silence. But she also understood my weakness that I could not talk, so perhaps I never had to say anything to her. She never judged me like other friends, why I do not call, or why she always has to call.

This girl has always faced every good, bad thing in me. And maybe these are the little things that keep us together.

25 Jan 2021.

Today is your engagement, such a big day of your life and I am very sad that I am not with you.This is probably the first time that I am not with you.
But frankly, no one can be more happy for you than me.

I know you understand my feelings,
But I feel very bad, and because I cannot speak, I had no option but to write to say sorry.

I wish that you always be happy, because the happiness of many people is associated with your happiness. Take my share of happiness if you need it, but always be happy.

I m really sorry geet And a big Congratulations.
