29th April 1996: A small very cute, extremely adorable baby is born and with her birth she gave me the biggest boon of my life SISTERHOOD. Even after 17 years from that day I m still cannot thank God enough for giving me the greatest gift of life. Initially I was little jealous as all the attention diverted from me to her but then when mom put her in my lap, her innocent smile and with those tiny hands she caught hold of my finger which made skip a heartbeat and realize I am a Big sister now.
From sharing my favorite dolls to the sharing my deepest darkest secrets...I knew they would be all safe with her. She can understand things I never said. She can understand pain which is not visible to anyone. I found a true friend in her, who would scold me, fight with me, go shopping with me, share inside jokes, counsel me, criticize me, adore me...We fight may like Tom and Jerry but love each other like Romeo and Juliet.
She is the younger one but she is wiser one. She would take care of me and my things so well when would go for trips at nani’s place in summer holidays, she would always made sure I would never forget anything. The best thing about having her as my sister is that I, I can say what I want, be who I m, do what I feel without the fear of being judged. She knows me inside out, from my favorite toys to my first crush. I can’t imagine my life without her, it would such a mess.
Barbara Alpert's view on sisters totally fits us
“She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child.”
P.S. Maitry Shah I m going to tell you my biggest secret I envy you. because you are always so full of love and strength, plus you have very amazing sister like me ; ) After all, all good things come in pairs
