Is it a blessing to have a Brother?
Well, that leads to many other branching questions such as- whether they are younger or elder to you, how many you have and whether you also have another sister in the picture etc.
Here's my equation: I am a lone sister with two younger brothers (who're practically like twins, as they are only 1.5 yrs apart and kinda look alike too)
And to get to a good conclusion, let's rewind back to my childhood (and my brothers' too of course)-I know you don't have time for this as this was quite awhile ago, but please have mercy and hear me out!
Bro's Top 5 , Then:
1) The teachers at school knew me very well- my Music/Tamil achievements were outdone by my brothers' with their behavioral/handwriting skills.
2) I maintained a good BMI
a) Never sat through an entire meal ever without a fight and I always left the plat(c)e unfinished
b) Sweets always went missing from my stash.
3) Got to study each grade thrice for free- by helping (sic) handling them/their friends (for free, of course)
4) Was well trained at hide & seek a.k.a lost & found, passing the parcel/ tug of war a.k.a my dear things and grin & bear it.
5) Got towering (literally!) unwelcome body-guards during outings
Add to the above: Forgetting phone messages, empty fridge water bottles, piling undone chores and being teased mercilessly.
Alright, setting time machine back to "Present" where all of us are grow(a)n-ups.
Have 2 boys of my own now- reincarnating my brothers.
With all the training over the years am handling drama(n)dy with ease.
1) Make their bike/car route via my destination, be it ice-cream, mall, concert - (check)
2) Listen to my never ending banter about anything and everything (Note: In his cell phone / calling card minutes) - (check)
3) Reminisce & recollect good times, praise your outfit/dish, bring a smile on my face even on the busiest day - (check)
4) Dote on my kids and play "Maama" perfect to the T - (check)
a) Brought the lovely "Maamis" (read, sisters for me) into the picture - (double check)
b) Entitled me becoming proud "Aththai" - (triple check)
5) Still act (and tower-over) as body-guards, as & when needed
Thee Brother is thus make you love thy Boys and Bring thy Blessings (& Body-guards)!

Mom: " So, how was craft class; did you make something new?"
Firstborn: " Craft miss showed how to make an origami cat. But I didn't make one"
Mom: " Why is that?"
Firstborn: " Because I didn't have the origami color paper"
Mom: " Kanna, you never told me you needed one..."
Firstborn: " Well, I am telling you now!"
He said it!

It's never too early to start with some things and so we huddled both the boys to watch Rajini's latest mega hit "Endhiran- The Robot".
It was a 9pm show and we didn't expect the boys to be awake past 10pm; but such was the magic of the Super Star, there wasn't a blink until 11:30pm.
The pure joy in the eyes of my second-born turned mine misty- The Thailaivar now has another ardent fan to his cap. And what more can I ask for, he now chants "Chitti! Robot-Da!!!"
First born was very curious and was asking Dad several questions of why, what and how during the movie?
A quick snippet:
(The Robot Chitti is disassembled by the Scientist fearing negative consequences)
Firstborn: "Why Appa, why did he break Chitti?"
Firstborn (hurriedly, showing off): " I remember, he broke the TV of the Scientist instead of switching it on. That's why, right?"
Dad (Nods with a smile)
First born now hums " Oh! Baby" from the movie.
For the love of Rajini -The One and Only Super Star!
