Recently, a friend of mine asked me, ‘Can you tell me, who is the unhappiest man in the world?’ My answer was, ‘An honest officer in a dishonest department. He is not liked by his juniors, not by his seniors, not by his relatives and above all, he is not liked by his family members, his mother, father, wife and children. In the process, he became the unhappiest man in the world.’

He agreed somewhat; but not entirely. Then he said, ‘To be a brother of a rogue sister is an unhappy man. Then when his family, including his mother supports the sister, not him, he becomes unhappier. Then, when she starts telling whole world that, she is a victim of her brother’s arrogance and success and other relatives believe it because of their own selfishness, the hapless brother became the unhappiest man.’

Then he told his side of the story, about him, his childhood, his relation with father, mother, brother and finally about his sister. He requested me to write something on him.

Keeping his request, I try to project his side of the story in a poetic verse instead of a prose form. However, I did not write something which goes against the dignity of the unknown sister.

Thanks to my readers and friends and above all my family for their constant support to write something usual and unusual. I love them all.

Thanks to Smashwords for publishing this story book along with my other books.

She was cute like an angel;

A gift from God;

Became bone of contention between the brothers,

Who would take her first;

On his lap.

She was the prettiest gift for her parent;

After two cute and smart sons;

And just after an ugly duckling;

Not smart, dumb in action;

Repulsive in look;

As they say thousand times;

In front of him and behind him.

She was the cynosure;

For the parent,

For the brothers,

None felt tired of describing her beauty;

Nor her slightest action as a child.

She was given the impression;

She had two loving brothers;

And another one;

Ready to provide her needs;

And needs of the family.

Two brothers were for love and affection;

Another one was to be humiliated;

In private or in public.

He was forced to cook,
