Indu and Vinoda were two loving sister’s living in a small town of karnataka. The two sister’s were very much attached to eachother, They were more like best friends for each other. Indu was 26years old a year older than her younger sister who was 25 years. Indu was very loving and caring towards her younger sister she was the best elder sister to her sister vinoda but Indu was a bit sensitive girl. On the other hand vinoda was very Practical girl . She was very bold enough to put her views across anyone. Indu being the elder one had to get married before her younger sister gets married. So here came the much awaited Wedding Day of Indu. Vinoda was very much happy as her sister had found her love of life and is going to get married so was Indu happy for her wedding day that she always dreamt of and which every other young girl dreams of. It was 17th Dec 2016 Indu’s wedding day. All her friends and relatives were very excited, laughter knew no boundaries , each and everyone was happy. Indu’s marriage got solrmnised according to Hindu rituals and ceremonies all were happy and were feeling sad as she will be taken away. Meanwhile all the guests and other things were managed by her younger sister Vinoda which was really managed systematically. It was really appreciable all complimented her . Soon the time arrived where Indu and her new family were about to live their way . The sad part of every wedding arrived where a daughter was going to her matrimonial home leaving her parents and sister. Indu met her parents , hugged them and cried a lot so did they cry. She met all her relatives who too had tears in their eyes . They were happy but feeling sad as Indu is going far from them. Finally Indu hugged her younger sister and cried a lot . Vinoda hugged her sister back she was in pain but she did not cry instead gave her best wishes for her new life with a smile and Indu left for her matrimonial home with her new family. Vinoda and her family with their relatives returned back to their home. Soon the discussion started amongst their relatives. They started saying wedding was Good, Indu and her hubby make a good couple and Indu was really looking very beautiful I must say in between the whole discussion was interrupted by Vinoda’s Maasi ( aunt) . She called out Vinoda and said
Maasi- Hey, Vinoda your elder sister was going away from you and you did not cry?
Vinoda- Yes Maasi I did not cry.
Maasi- But I thought you would cry the most?
Vinoda – No Maasi it was nothing as such.
Soon it was interrupted by another aunt sitting beside.
Aunt- Didn’t you feel pain as your sister was going far away from you?
Vinoda- Yes Aunty I did feel the pain.
Aunt- Then why didn’t you cry ? It didn’t seem by your face that you felt the pain.
Vinoda- Yes Aunt, Yes Maasi, I did not cry at my sister’s wedding. Does it mean that shedding tears or crying only is the way of expressing feelings or pain? Some people like me dont feel so. Yes you all cried when Indu was leaving for her matrimonial home. You all cried because you all are sensitive and tears rolled down your cheeks. I am practical and did not cry but that doesn’t mean I dont have emotions . It doesn’t mean that I dont value feelings .My sister very well knows how much I love her and I dont have to cry to show her that she knows my feelings for her. I am not emotionless I am just emotionally strong . Please do not mispercieve me being emotionally strong as emotionless. I have just mastered the art of controlling my tears . Yes I did not cry at my sister’s wedding. Though she was going far away distance from me . My bond with her is forever . Her marriage will never end my relation with her . Yes she is married and is a part of new family but she was my sister , she is my sister & she will always be my sister . She has just started a new life for herself which she always dreamt of and am more happy to see her dreams coming true and this thought brings only smile on my face . Our way of expressing feelings are different but feelings are same 😊
