Dear Umang Bhaiyya,
As rakhi nears, I miss home a little more each day. Especially this year with Dolu’s being the first rakhi You know Umang, I have written so many letters on behalf of so many sisters that I felt, why am I not writing a letter to you?
Umang, for me, you are the childhood I get to keep forever, and that is a beautiful gift. In every letter I write, I see us. Your life journey has also been a part of my journey.
With your marriage, I first made a Lumba
for Preeti bhabhi and we started to started to make lumbas at Nomad.
This year I didn't want to send Dolu a big rakhi. Hence I made the Dolu-Meethu rakhi
for Dolu and Meethu.
I am bewildered at this realization, how strongly your presence in my life has shaped my Rakhi journey entirely.
We were thick as thieves bhaiyya, but as time passed we got busier. But as many years and miles are between us, you and I, are there for each other.
I am sending rakhi for you all. You know what! Let's take a break after rakhi and plan a staycation to Mussoorie. Done then, see you soon!
Do give my love to Dolu and Meethu. Sending virtual hugs for you and preeti!
Lots of love,
