"An older sister is a friend and defender – a listener, conspirator, a counselor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too. – Pam Brown" Rupa Tai has been all this and more. She dropped everything in a heartbeat to be with me on this journey. She has been my rock…my person… Rupa Tai was involved in my journey from when I was diagnosed to the time I was deciding the course of treatment to packing her bags and coming with me to New York. She was there from get-go. Her transition from one role to another was seamless. A dictator when I needed to eat right or take my meds or an empathetic counselor alternating between giving advice and offering silent support when all I needed was to be alone with my thoughts. She was around. She was with me and by me, at all times. Sisters share a special relationship. We are literally an extension of each other. For bad days, her presence did the trick and the good days…well, it just got better! We have now returned home – to our respective families and lives, but us together in New York for those 6 months…I am forever indebted… #SwitchOnTheSunshine #OneDayAtATime @ranadiverupa
The actress was quite emotional and thanked her sister for everything and how she has been by her side unconditionally and without any dramas. The post talks about the bond between sisters and it will make you a little teary eyed.
Sonali Bendre‘s last one year or so has been brutal, but she is not giving up and is taking the cancer battle head on. We sincerely pray and hope that Sonali smashes her cancer out of the park and once again gives us that picture perfect smile.
