Cousin Mia (Letters to Parth - 6)

My dragon-slayer, My brave knight,
biggrin Heard that you had a wonderful time with your grandparents, uncle Tipu, aunt Chandreyee, and cousin Mia.  I am so glad that you were able to meet up with this side of your family.  A family is an unit or group that has a shared kinship or relationship.  One has many kinds of family.  The first family we come to know of is the family we are born into.  Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters if there are any.  Then we realize that there is more to it, there are aunts and uncles, cousins, grandparents.  We also have families like that of all the people living in an apartment building.  Then you have your family of schoolfriends.  You have families of fans who like the same thing, like music, or sports.  Can you thing of some more families that you are a member of?
Here are some pictures of your time with Mia (Mihika), Mama Mia (Chandreyee), and Barey Mian (Tipu), Cousin Titi, and also your nutty Thammi (Manju) and Thakurdada (Surajit).

Tipu and I never got to know each other too well when we were kids.  He was born when I was twelve, and by the time he grew up to be a person, I was deeply engrossed with my research into pharmaceuticals.  We really started relating to each other after he grew up.  Once I grow up, we will relate even more I guess.  And once you grow up too, we will have a big party.
