Everyone is celebrating the bond, togetherness and recalling the promises because today is Rakshabandhan. Rakshabandhan is a festival in the Hindu’s tradition in which a brother makes promises to her sister “to take care and protect her” whole life. A beautiful relationship of brother and sister are speaking the language of the infinite bond where a sister can take leisure in the shade of a brother. |
A day of recalling all promises, all responsibilities and act of a brother to sister. It is not a matter of how many possibilities for a brother to make promises fulfill, but a day to make promises. Always I have seen this day as “celebration of great bond and relationship” and I have a conspicuous respect of the day.
But in the race of promises, I am a failure. I call myself a pretender. So a failure brother can’t walk through the day, have no rights to make promises again. A brother can’t walk through promises because; It was a matter of fighting with infinity, a revolt against universe but a brother was not successful. Not successful to emulate with death. I lost my fight two years back, when I was not able to make my sister alive. A brother couldn’t protect her sister from death. It was a promise to her, promise to alive again, a promise to make her come out from cancer disease.
It is a disease which comes as a death only. But I was as a fountain of life for her. I have broken my promises. I couldn’t make her alive. I am not eligible for the day of Rakshabandhan. It’s a day which makes me recall everything, today is a day of nostalgia. The day which marked me as a pretender.
A great chapter I have learnt through all my experiences that “every brother is not eligible for this day”. And I am one of them.
