for Sanjiv Uncle!
Gifts from Bhanu!
is an angel blessed to one of my best friends, Devki. I know Bhanu
since year 2000, the time when she was a very small kid.
Devki and I were colleagues in office and were (and still are) very close friends. I
often use to visit his home to meet his family.
Bhanu was (and still
is) a soul very close
to me and whenever I use to visit her she would come, sit by my side
"So Uncle, what did you do today?!"
And I would tell her about my day's schedule occasionally responding
to her 'Why(s) and what(s)' during our ever-interesting discussions (Q&A
So after listening to me,
she would start telling me about her day's schedule.
Starting from what time she went to school, what and which teacher said
what to her, who all got beating in the class for misbehaving, how much
marks she got in her tests to all the home work that her teacher gave
her for that day... so on and so forth.
Smiling at her innocence and nodding at her statements as if I knew all
the people she was talking about I use to listen to each and every bit of
her never ending piece of 'information' that she had to share only with her
I still remember how she use to cry and weep on seeing me leave her
house. She wanted her Sanjiv Uncle to be by her side all the time....
Time flew and our days, weeks, months and years went by... and today, my
Bhanu, that same little angel, is a grown-up child who feels shy when I
tell her about all those wonderful days.
Remembers my Birthday...
In all these years, one thing that my Bhanu never forgot was her Sanjiv
Each year, on my birthday, she sends me gifts beautifully crafted and
hand-made by her own little hands with utmost care and love for her 'Sanjiv Uncle'
(that's 'Proudly' me!).
For her, 'Sanjiv Uncle' is her best friend in this world and so is
'Bhanu' for me.

This is not something that she bought from malls, she
made all this by herself using the sketch pens, pencils and
papers torn out of her notebook!

" Fly to Sanjiv Uncle "

Its not that I have not received cards before, but these are really
special cards for me. They are not any ordinary cards. They have my Bhanu in
them - hiding in every bit and piece of this page torn out of her
copy - a page that has more worth than any other paper in this
world... They have
all her feelings, all her emotions and all her love in each word.
They really are not just a card - they are something beyond that...
something really more.

surprise gift on my birthday!
And whenever she sends me anything, she always says;
What an amazing child my Bhanu is, and of course, perfectly
amazing is her 'Sanjiv Uncle'! - Isn't it?!

share with her.
