I have wanted to be similar to many people when I was growing up. Here, I would like to talk about my aunt, Jyoti, whom I really wanted to be like. She is my father’s cousin and is a doctor. She is in her early forties and is tall and beautiful. She has a wheatish complexion and has short curly black hair. When she smiles, she has a deep dimple on her right cheek, which makes her look very beautiful. I vividly remember, the ﬁrst time I met her in a family function when I was in 8th. She had come from Canada and seemed to be the hot favourite of all family members. I was impressed by her way of talking. I could see the look of admiration everyone had for her. When my father introduced us, she gave me a warm smile and hugged me tight. I immediately developed a liking for her. The whole day I remained with her like her shadow. I really wanted to be like her. My father invited her to spend a day or two with us at our home. She spent the weekend with us. I can never forget those two days. Now I am planning to go to Canada for my higher education. My favourite aunt is there, so even the thought of being with her makes me happy.
