Searching for him?
Once, during an adda, one of my close friends told me a very important and easy way to fall in love. "Try to fall in love with elder brother's or younger sister's friend. I was a bit surprised, because falling in love is always the toughest job no matter with whom you fall. This friend, however, told me that as these guys are the nearest people and have an easy coming and going facility in our house, they are available. Another facility is if you get caught while in a conversation over phone, you can easily transfer the phone to your bro/sis by saying "its your phone". For failing in love you have to choose the perfect and most suitable one, so that later your brother/ sister can support you.
At first I didn't pay much attention to his words. Later when I thought deeply, I found that he is right. When I realized this truth, from that day I have started my mission to fall in love with one suitable "bhaiya" to make him my "saiya". Before that time I didn't pay much attention to my brother's friends. I had known and seen only one or two of them. So my first mission was to find out my brother's photo album and gather information about them. When I saw a group photo, within one minute I fell for one of them. (Oh! Eto din tumi kothai tchile? ) I asked my brother, "Bhaiya, what's his name? He's so dashing!" My brother informed me that he is so handsome that most of the girls in their campus tried to flirt with him. He never gives attention to them. Hey, that means he is FREE. Boy O boy! May be I'm that lucky girl for whom he is still waiting! Life, however, is not meant to be so easy. My brother informed me that the boy has an affair with his cousin. BANG! CRACK! Oh! My broken heart! Does anyone have super glue? This was my first heartbreak.
I got my second heartbreak a few days ago. My brother invited some of his friends to our house. So I was a bit excited. There were seven bhaiyas and four Apus. I didn't know any of them. So I told my brother to introduce me to his friends. At that time I didn't know what my evil brother was cooking in his evil head. Oh! Why was my own brother my enemy? I was waiting for his call. At last my brother called me. Before entering into his room, he told me to sit in the drawing room, because he was going to call them there. I took a perfect position from where I could watch everyone. At first my brother called the Apus by their names to come in the drawing room and … that's all. He didn't introduce me with his male friends. I could kill my brother! Was I waiting for the introduction with the Apus? I had dreamed so many dreams! God! Please don't even give such brothers to my enemies!
Sometimes I think if I had more than one elder brother then it would have been an easy task for me. After all there remained so many choices! But God is not so kind to me. I have only one evil brother. Anyway, I haven't given up yet. I'm trying my best and I believe "failure is the pillar of success" in every case. I'm just waiting and searching for the appropriate person and time. I'm sure someday I will find him.
