My favorite teacher in school always used to say that all I need is fame. Probably because he had seen me going an extra mile to earn trophies in interschool debate competitions. Why interschool? Because winning interschool competitions used to bag me a chance of getting into local newspapers. Why debate? I don't know but winning debates used to give me immense happiness.
At the same time, my brother is famous in the whole district as he by-hearted Hanuman Chalisa at the age of 3. And he used to visit churches, mosques with the same excitement as that of visiting the temple. Later he read Bhagwad Gita, Quran, Bible etc.
With the time we channelized our energies according to our likes and happiness. Today I am highly passionate about work while he is for Yoga. And even though we are totally different from each other, we share a very close bond.
Due to long distance whenever we get time we talk for hours, understand and support each other through thick and thin.
No matter what, we know we're family. Yeah!
He is younger to me but has a good maturity level, very affectionate and understanding. He is doing good in his life and constantly growing in a way he wants to. I am proud to see his intellect, maturity and spiritualism.
There are times when people advise me to advise him. They want me to advise him on success and life.
And I don't know what to say to them. Because I understand they are well-wishers.
Do you know what is that one thing which can spoil any relationship or can leave someone disheartened forever?
Comparison. People compare siblings, friends, spouses, relatives and even neighbors. I am a Bollywood Movie Buff. So please bear with me as I am going to be a little philosophical here.
We unknowingly compare Shamita Shetty with Shilpa Shetty, Abhishek Bachchan with Amitabh Bachchan or Aishwarya Rai, Tushar Kapoor with Ekta Kapoor, Tanisha with Kajol etc. Because we feel later one is more successful.
Well, that's not right. Everyone has a different meaning for success. We are no one to judge others and their decisions.
Here is why I don't need to advise my brother
My brother is highly talented. He shined like a star during his school and college. Apart from his regular IT job, he does poetry, performs Yoga Asanas, loves to travel and reads a lot. He is a free soul. First of all I don't think someone like me is capable enough to advise him.
Secondly even if I can advise him, I won't. Because I trust his abilities and I am sure he will do something good with his life for sure.
Ups & downs are a part of everyone's life. And I know my brother will come out with flying colors, much stronger than he is today.
Wrapping up this post with lots of love & good wishes for you dear brother. Have a very happy birthday & Rakshabandhan. May God Bless You Forever!
