Dear Ma, Baba,
I would like to thank you. Thank you for being their when I was (still am) being stupid. Thank you for being their when I am difficult, unreasonable, annoying, so much more. Even though I have not been the best daughter but still you guys are there when I need you.
If I say things have been rather hard, would be more of a taunt than a statement. I know it is me, who is making disastrous decisions and making things difficult for me and both of you. More on your part. But still your ability to keep up with every tantrum and whine of mine.
I call almost 5 to 6 times a day. I whine about every little thing around, almost everyone. I whine about my calculations going wrong, cry about not fitting in, yell about the damn course. Still you listen to me, with patience, plenty of patience. I wonder whether one day your well of patience will dry up and I will end up with dry eyes. But I don't think, that day is close. And I think I will grow out of this phase, eventually.
Someone I know, once commented. 'You call your parents A LOT!' I simply smiled and said, 'Yes I do!'
I do call you guys a lot. I talk to you numerous times. It's not because I don't have a life, but it's because you give me strength. The power to take up life as it comes. Maybe when you read this, things may not match up. But deep inside, you are my wall. Both of you keep me from falling over.
Baba, the man who seldom talks, you also try to help me out. Console me. I admire your effort and you are good at it, by the way. Your sense of humour makes one giggle. I think I might get my humorous gene from you. LOL
You are really cool. The times when you tell me that have an anda a day, or milk. I really feel like doing it. You are surprising chilled for a father, I share so much with you, without any inhibitions. Your positivity is what can make dead flowers bloom, your will power is amazing and I would want to be like you one day. Some day.
Ma. You are my best friend. People say once you grow up, your mother becomes your friend. Well, you became mine. I may not be the coolest kid in town but it still can't be bad to have me as a daughter. Hai na? You have this amazing determination. You never give up. You are not a quitter. I wish I had that in me.
Dadamoni has also been great support. He is a wonderful son and also a really cool brother. Even though we may not seem to be the conventional 'bro-sis' duo but we manage just fine. He still thinks I am a cry baby, well maybe he is a little bit right. But keeping such minor details aside, my family is a my greatest strength and I may not be best at such things but I love you guys and I owe all three of you immensely.
Words won't be enough to explain so many thoughts that run through my mind (literally), but all in all, like I said in the beginning, Thank You!
