  • Barbara Alpert had said once “Sister. 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.”. I feel that those words were absolutely apt.

    My first sister was my best childhood friend. Fights that we had were countless. Poor mum, she must have done extra ordinary for managing kids like us. We had a great childhood. As we grew together I had the feeling that she was very shy and old school type person. But she proved me wrong. Not that long back ago, dad had an accident and I wasn’t there at home. Mum was emotionally very low, my first sister managed everything well, which I never expected from her. She was doing things that were beyond her abilities. By the time I reached home everything was in place. I couldn’t say anything much, I was simply speechless and overwhelmed.

    My youngest sister was like my living toy, upon whom I used to experiment all my parenting abilities. Whenever she was with me, I was feeling like rejuvenated. She is a kind of independent and ambitious person with definite goals in life, which reminded me of what I was missing in my life a few years back.

    I know that sometimes I took them for granted but they are the people who make me responsible and caring about loved once.
