Baatein Bhool Jaati Hai, Yaadein Yaad Aati Hai... From Manav to Manny, Pavitra Rishta to Dil Bechara, background dancer in the dance team during the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006 to the most celebrated and beloved actor of Bollywood, Sushant Singh Rajput in his professional journey, has given us moments of hope and happy memories to remember him, off-screen as well as on-screen. A boy from Maldiha, Bihar had taught us Khulke Jeene Ka Tareeka in his more than a decade long journey.

It has been more than a month since Sushant Singh Rajput's demise and him, leaving his family, friends and fans with some unanswered questions, and we only wish him to 'RIP' (Return If Possible). On Sushant's one-month death anniversary, his sister, Shweta Singh Kirti had posted a selfie with her brother, wherein they could be seen flashing their brightest smile, and had captioned it as "It has been a month since you left us...but your presence is still felt so strongly.... Love you Bhai. Hope u always stay eternally happy."
To ease the pain of her brother, Sushant Singh Rajput's demise, Shweta Singh Kirti went down the memory lane, recalled and shared some stories of him with his fans. Remembering how Sushant was a charmer since the beginning, Shweta wrote, "Part 1: I am experiencing bouts of pain. Right when I think I am coping with it better, some or the other incidence rushes right back into my memory and breaks me apart. One such memory I am sharing with you all... because it is said that the more you share your grief, the less it hurts. I have always been told by my family members that Mom and Dad wanted a son, more so because Mumma’s first child was a son and she had lost him at the tender age of one and half. I never got to meet my first sibling. But mom and dad were very hopeful for a second son.... they made a sankalp (mannat) and started praying to Maa Bhagwati for straight 2 years. They fasted, they meditated, they did puja, hawan and went to spiritual places and met spiritual people. But then I was born, on a Diwali day.... Mumma considered me very lucky and often called me Lakshmi Ji. They continued with their Sadhna, and a year later my little brother was born. Right from the beginning he was a charmer, he mesmerized everyone with his beautiful smile and twinkling eyes."
Recalling their sibling love and why she used to call Sushant Singh Rajput her 'Pithiya', Shweta Singh Kirti continued, "So, this little one was my “Pithiya”. This is a term used in colloquial Hindi to signify the one who comes right after you. Mumma believed that I was the cause of his much-desired arrival into our lives and I accepted the honor whole heartedly. I was very protective about my little brother because I felt I was responsible for bringing him to this earthly plane. We were always time together, We played, danced, studied, did all sorts of mischiefs, ate, slept, did everything together so much so that people forgot we were 2 separate individuals, they even called us “Gudia-Gulshan” as if we were a single entity (Bhai’s nick was Gulshan and mine Gudia)."

Ending her first post with how Sushant Singh Rajput had travelled to the building which was a kilometre away to meet his sister, who was in UKG when he was in prep school, Shweta Singh Kirti concluded the Part 1 of 'Bhai Ki Kahani, Behen Ki Zabani' with "And when we started going to school, we had to go to different classes. Bhai’s Nursery and my prep classes were in same building so we managed our 1st year of school pretty well. But then my UKG class was in a different building and his prep classroom remained in the same building, so we got separated. One day after lunch break was over I saw Bhai in my classroom, in my building. We were just 4/5 year olds then. #BhaikikahaniBehankizabani #Downthememorylane #LuvuBhai."
Continuing why Sushant Singh Rajput had escaped his prep classes to come to meet her, Shweta Singh Kirti began the Part 2 and wrote, "Part 2: I was completely shocked and as well as happy to see him and asked him how he got there, because his building was at-least half a kilometer away. He told me that he was feeling alone and anxious and wanted to be with me. I pondered for while thinking how adventurous and courageous he was to escape his building with a watchman and then walking half a kilometer and entering my building right under a watchman’s nose and finally finding my class and me. I found his explanation of running away from his building pretty viable as I knew that feeling, When I was dropped off at the school for the first time, I kept crying and asking Dad not to leave me, “Please don’t leave me here alone” that feeling... initial anxiety to be separated from family members and be somewhere where you don’t know anybody."
Shweta Singh Kirti then fast forwarded the school anecdote to her wedding in 2007 and her moving to US post-marriage, "And as a 5 year old protective big sister, I assured him that he can be with me. First, I tried to hide him in between me and my friend, but somehow my class-teacher noticed him while taking attendance. I was myself a little scared, but to protect my little brother, I stood up and told her that he is not feeling well and asked if he could stay with us until dismissal. To my amazement, the teacher agreed and we were so happy, but little after 2 periods as the social norm will have it, he was sent back to his building but by that time we have had so much fun that all of his anxiety were gone. Fast forward in 2007, I remember the day when I got married and as I was leaving, Bhai hugged me tight and we cried a lot. Physically we won’t stay together anymore, we won’t get to see each other that often anymore as I was moving to USA."
Shweta Singh Kirti concluded the second part with a wish to relive the childhood once again and hope the demise of her brother, Sushant Singh Rajput to be a nightmare, "Both of us got too busy with our lives. Bhai got into Bollywood and kept making us all proud with his accomplishments but I remained protective about him. I would often ask him to come and visit me in the US so that we can relive our childhood once again away from all the noise. I only wish I could have protected him from everything....I still wish I will wake up to see my Bhai... just right next to me and will realize this whole episode was just a nightmare and nothing more. #BhaikikahaniBehankizabani #Downthememorylane #LuvuBhai."
