Things that happen when your younger brother is around

In honor of my little brother’s 21st birthday ( If he reads this, I can just imagine him rolling his eyes praying for patience 😝)  here are 21 things that happen whenever he’s around

1. We always fight for the remote 


2. We always finish the chocolates from the fridge before the other gets a chance

3. We always mock complain to our parents, or atleast I go like, ‘Mommmm!!’ as a throw-caution-to-the-winds 😂

4.  We love telling on each other’s deepest dismays to our parents  

5. We take turns in doing household work. And if it is not our turn we won’t dont do it. 

6. When Dad or Mom calls, “Why does is it have to be me? Why dont u tell him?” 

7. We like messing each other’s things just to wind the other up.  
8. We always have an eye on the other’s plate at meals

9. I always offer him advice, but he is too cool for my old school 

10. So naturally, I get a shock if he asks for my advice

11. I always buy him gifts but I don’t get any in return 


12. We have synchronized morning schedules to avoid getting into arguments 

13. We cover up for each other 


14. If I’m bored I can always bug him

15. We always criticize each other’s likes and mimic each other just to wind each other up. 

16. He lets me bat while playing cricket which no one else allows me to do 🏏😁

17. We team up and irritate mom 😈😈

18. He is a great support during the dreaded “family functions”. We don’t even have to communicate with words.

19. I can gossip with him – he atleast listens to it all. 😜

20. And this is one thing every sibling tells the other – that Mom and Dad love us more than them😂 

21. But seriously speaking little bro, I feel that U should get all the chances that I didnt. And we are all proud of U and want to see U happy. 

Once again, 


Day 23 Topic 23: Booked – Part II

Continuing from Part I 😜

I love reading books on weddings and marriages 😁 The hustle, the bustle, the designs, the colors, the feelings  😍 Love every bit of it. 

I became a fan of Peshwa Bajirao after watching Bajirao Mastani and I wanted this book. I literally searched high and low for this book every where and when I finally found it I was like, eh, does nothing for me 🙁

A confession, I stopped reading it somewhere in between. 

Confessions about unread books ho hi rahe hai toh, these two books I never got around to reading. 

Sherlock Holmes, I’m sorry but I don’t like u🙈 I know many people will think I’m crazy but it’s just that. Plus look at the sheer volume of it. And the font is really tiny too *sheepish grin*

The Year I Met U, I never got around to reading somehow. It just arrived from Amazon, changed some hands and then went straight inside the cupboard. Been there since then. 

These books I have received as gifts. Flygirl and my sister are the only two people who gift me books regularly. 
Where She Went and P. S. I Love U are my favorite. Those of you who have seen the movies may agree with me. 

Great Expectations just bounced above my head and frankly I don’t know what the hype around Mrs Funnybones is 😕 Or maybe her sarcastic humor is just lost on me. 

Books from my Pune collection. Miss u FC Road!!

And some books u borrow from ur sister and conviently forget to return 😜 I mean c’mon, she doesn’t read them! 

My go to books when I’m in the mood for some chic lit romances or light frothy reads. Seriously, when I have a reader’s block, I just pick one of these books to gain my momentum back!

To more such stories and alternate universes 😀 Happy reading guys!! 😊

8 things I learnt from the past:

3. If it’s meant to happen, it will.

4. No use stressing over things not in ur control
