IMAGE: Genelia D'Souza writes a letter to her brother Nigel: 'My Dearest Nigu Pigu,
I sometimes think what if Mama and Pops didn’t give me you, how would my life ever be complete??
Who would give me share market advice( of which, I can’t understand half of it ), N who look out for me 24-7 with so little effort and so so so much love ?
My list of questions would go on but I don’t need to live in what ifs, when I have you and unfortunately I’m the only sister you will ever have
No one is you or can ever be like you and that’s your power..
Happy Raksha Badhan Nigu Pigu I Love You.'

IMAGE: Tina Datta shares her feelings for brother Debraj in a letter: 'Dear Bhaiyya,
As a child I was a brat and you were the innocent one. We both are poles apart but there is something that binds us together. I’m the younger one but would hit you and beat you up, you put up with so much. You would look after me with so much care and I know I’m blessed! I miss the time we spent in Kolkata. We continue to fight even today as grown ups but our bond is still the same. It’s Rakshabandhan today and we are in two different cities and I know my eyes are numb but heart full because I know I have such a loving, caring and innocent brother….yes innocence is priceless and hard to find! I love my Bhaiyya! Your Baby Sister, Tinuu Tinuu.'
