I’ve always wanted a brother. But growing up alongside two sisters, I figured I wasn’t missing out on much. Flash forward to the week of Meha and Hardeep’s wedding in Chandigarh. The way that Kavi went above and way, WAY beyond for his sister and future bro and law in executing the festivities truly blew me away. From memorizing innumerable song and dance numbers, to graciously playing host and helping me find my way amidst the hustle and bustle — Kavi was a true superhero. I could tell just from that week alone how he loved his family and friends so ferociously (intense word, I know!), with every fiber of his being. And I will never forget how be welcoming he made me feel, like I was part of the family.
I don’t remember which Black Friday it was, but Kavi and I decided to wake up early for it. So I slept over at his house with the plan to wake up around 5 am and hit the stores.
We started playing one of the Halo games. Probably 3. And as the night worn on, we debated whether to sleep or keep playing. And the debate played out repeatedly exactly the same. Kavi would look at me and say “dude we need to get some sleep” and I would look back and same to him “nah man one more game” and he would look at me and grin sheepishly “ok one more game” and that is how we played “one more game” for roughly 5 hours until the crack of dawn when we finally left to for Walmart.
I believe he bought the Soprano’s Season 1 on DVD. I didn’t buy anything at all.
