The tale of a sister and her brother!!

Filed under: Relationships — Celia Rexselin @ 5:18 pm

They were the best of friends at times, worst of enemies some other times. Many a times, she has enjoyed petting him and he would love to rest his head on her lap. Together they would sing, eat from the same pot, fight for the bathroom and sometimes, wink at each other when they see flirting members of the other sex.

And it all came to an end, when she got married. He didn’t think so however. The bridegroom was good. He might even go far as saying that he was an okay person for his adorable sister. Being the brother, he loved to put the gold chain on his brother-in-law’s neck.. He loved all the snaps that he took of both of them. He was proud when all his college friends came and took photo with his sister. “My lovely sister!!!”, pride and happiness was written on his young face.

A week passed. Sister was sitting on a sofa facing brother-in-law. They were leaving that day and he had to bid “Good Bye!!”.. With no words to express his affection, he came near, put his arms on his sister affectionately. “Can you please take it off?”, scolded his sister.

Was he hurt? No, that would be a euphemistic word to describe his feeling. But he didn’t say a word. Took off his hands, and moved out. “My sister has changed, definitely!!”.. was the thought going on in his mind.

How would he know the disapproving glare his brother-in-law gave his sister when he embraced her? Or when will he understand the pain in her eyes, when she had to scold her brother for no fault of his?

(P.S: The above incident is not fiction. Jagan, this is the incident which came to my mind)



  1. I feel BIL shouldn;t have given a glare. He should understand the bond betwen siblings. How would he react if he had a sister?..
    Although, initially brother may react starange, but he will understand and he will also in same foot steps at some point or the other, hope he doesn;t do what his BIL has done!!

  5. @Sujit- Yes, I do certainly hope that he wouldn’t do the same.

    @Jeevan- The brother did understand in this case.. And most of the times, if we just think on the other person’s shoes.. no misunderstanding would happen..

    @harish- True, harish.. but one can easily identify this from the real ones.. can’t we?

    @ardra- Thanks yaar. Feels good to hear that ur hubby and brother have a very good rapport!! πŸ™‚

    well….after her marriage , i tend to get more hugs from my sis .

    but the incident u mentioned here , if the BIL is not happy abt bro and sis relation..i dont think he will ever b secure of his relation with his wife .

  7. I think she should disregard her hubby’s glare and hug her lil brother back. Poor fellah , must have been heartbroken to see a person who is like a mom to him, rejecting his hug.

  8. @Jagan- Yes, yaar. It was for you. You have rightly judged the root cause behind the BIL’s behaviour.. Insecurity or what we otherwise call as “Possessiveness”.. It happens in many relationships where we are forced to HURT someone inorder to PLEASE someone else..

    I too had done this earlier.. and I know how it pained to hurt a friend.. Though I patched up later, this pain was always there.

    @Silverline- Great!! But I don’t know what I would do if I was placed in a similar situation..

  9. ur reply to me and silverine – come on..if ur hubby(or wud b ) is not happy when u spend ur time with ur bro or friends , then u sud try making him understand things and make him feel secure. u cant hurt ur friends or bro bcos he feels insecure .

  10. Jagan, Its easier said than done.. If its easy to solve any problem just by making someone “understand”, then there wouldn’t be any problems in earth…

    But thats not the case.. Anyone and everyone think that THEY are right and whatever opinion OTHERS might have is WRONG… How can we make one understand when they have their own set of PRINCIPLES?

    As I said before, two of my friends had conflicting ideas and I had to take a stand. Now I know that I should have taken a neutral stand but then I didn’t. I ended up hurting myself and one of my friends.

  11. yeah ..ther cud b no problem if everyone understands . but this cant happen bcos everyone is right in their own ways…(am just repeating wht u said ) ..but dont u think tht the sister sud tell her hubby tht its fine if she lets her bro hug her …come on , dont tell me the sis has got to nod her head for everything her hubby says .
