Who is he that annoys you all the time, yet manages to occupy a huge space in your heart? Who is he that you fight with like crazy, but still look for after the unenviable experiences? A brother, he is a brother.

This is a great time to recall a famous saying by Marc Brown, an author of children’s’ books. He said, “Sometimes, being a brother is even better than being a superhero.” We all have indelible memories when our brothers have been our friends, confidants, our knights in shining armour. To embrace the significant and impactful presence of brothers in their siblings’ life, Brother’s Day is celebrated on May 24 every year.Brothers' Day

As the years pass by and we grow up, our bonds with family start weakening. However, there is always a place in our heart that always belongs to the family. As siblings grow up, the charm of their bond begins to fade. There isn’t any stealing of chocolates, small silly fights, secret complaining against each other to parents, and most importantly, those tiny moments of love after the long quarrels. Sometimes, the reason behind all these voids is our gradual transformation from children to mature adults, and the other times, it is just because of physical distance that separates us from each other. The worst part about this drifting away is that it comes without any real visible realization.Brothers' Day

Brother’s Day is not just another day of the year. It celebrates this eternal bond that siblings share, the love that has inspired hundreds of films, paintings, poetry, and films. It celebrates the fact that together, siblings can achieve remarkable things. Some pairs who have already set examples are Grimm Brothers, famous for their stories; Wright Brothers, who pioneered the first aeroplanes; the Jackson 5, the significant contributors to Pop Music. No wonder how many such examples have not made it to the world of fame.Brothers' Day

This beautiful relationship is made up of little promises, moments of love and warmth, and the small sweet fights which become your cherished memories forever. Thank your Brother for being your sunshine in the dark. Buy him chocolates, or a small present he would love, have a meal with him and show him that he matters. Make him smile, not just today, but whenever you can!

If you’re a boy and you’re reading this, I wouldn’t want to miss the chance to thank you for being incredibly supportive and loving towards your brothers and sisters.
