Why Every Woman Should Have a Sister.....

  • Only a sister knows when you're fishing for a compliment, and when you are genuinely thinking "I look fat."
  • Only a sister will listen to you complain about your hair when she is struggling to keep her eyes open in a different time zone
  • Only a sister understands when you suddenly burst into tears in the middle of recounting a funny incident in the past
  • Only a sister will understand when you flood her phone with photos of your latest cooking venture
  • Only a sister can keep up the tempo of a conversation surrounding the mango tree in the backyard, or the little drying up pond you both haven't seen in ages
  • Only a sister will call you back immediately after an hour long conversation to tell you that she "Just wanted to say a proper goodnight."
  • Only a sister will listen to you explaining in depth, the symptoms of your ailment - physical, mental, emotional or imaginary.
  • Only a sister will call up an aging parent to remind the parent that your birthday is tomorrow
  • Only a sister will send bottles and bottles of vitamins because you complained of osteoporosis
  • Only a sister will understand when you suddenly stop the conversation with "Shit! Gotto go...."
  • Only a sister will, inspite of the distance separating the two of you, make you feel as though she's just next to you......

Happy Birthday my darling Sis ...... you were the first 'best' thing to happen to me!

  1. My sis is 10 years younger to me. There was a time when she was small and needed my taking care of, but now, as you wrote we do all these silly things that only sisters can do. She got married this July, now we call each other in the middle of the night to crib about our better half (when we've picked a fight with them). The fight is long forgotten by the time we finish our call. Will definitely share this with her :)

    2. You know Bikram.... so many men who have sisters don't deserve them!! All thos people who kill their own sisters for property, for 'honor' of the family..... doubt if they will ever come to their senses.
