When I was growing up, I had some very close cousins. I really loved all of my 25 + cousins, but because of distance and age difference, I became good friends with Gitz and Devinda. Devinda is essentially my brother. We are the the onl y two sons, of the only two daughters of a family of Nine. That's right my Mom, Srimathi, had seven brothers and one sister, Aunty Panch. So, they are obviously very close.
These two photos are missing the last son. The bottom one is taken with the Prime Minister of Burma.
