It was a lovely day.  The whole night it was raining.  Sun was shining and a little dazzling too. I got up early and took a  bath and wore my favourite Kurti. And I was busy preparing my thali for rakhi, while my mother was calling me again and again for breakfast. I kept my brother’s favourite sweets (mithai), sindoor, and rice grains for teeka in my thali. My brother was excited too. As he is not a morning person but that day he got up early and ready for rakhi.

Then I tied a rakhi around his wrist. He took the sweet and ate a full piece of sweet by himself. Then I asked for my gift. He started to make fun that he forgot, so he had only chocolate for me. I was a little disappointed but accepted as a token of love.  I took the chocolate and turned, and suddenly something came close to my eyes. It was blurred, and I am not able to see what was that. Suddenly I saw a key. I was wondering what kind of key. He was smiling and said your gift is outside. I quickly ran out and found my scooty there.
