To my dearest monkey,
We are sisters, and no matter what happens, this truth is never going to be changed, because, our relationship is exactly like Tom and Jerry in real life!
I was a little insecure and to be honest, hugely afraid right at the start, because the thought of sharing my parents with you was a nightmare then. I still remember that precious moment, when I heard the news of your arrival as the youngest family member of our little family. I was kind of sad because, then, I always wanted a brother, a brother who will be my partner in everything and this mentality was partly due to my parents because, as a kid I had no opinion of my own!
Yes it was my immaturity then to judge the situation, like that. Afterwards I vividly remember how I used to help my mother take care of you! Your little fingers and those little eyes made me wonder how someone with such a small body could even survive. My mother used to say that I was a very timid child, which was totally contrary to you, for then, you were such an irritating baby girl.
Still, I took care of you, because there was some unspoken strong affection in my mind for you. There is a vivid memory of you with me, during the winter, when your cheeks used to become rough and dry during the season. I used to make a homemade cream mixing all kinds of moisturising products in a container and apply to your skin, and I called it ‘Hyperpigmentation cream’ ( I didn’t know the right term then)!
On the other hand, you were like a “Crying Baby” always crying, but when I applied that cream upon your cheeks you looked with your big eyes as if you were enjoying it. Yes I was that crazy and that protective about you! Really!
I am still protective about you. I worry when you feel hurt about something. In the years of you, entering in my teenage, I was kind of disturbed so I had lot of issues with you then. But now I find my own compatible “partner in crime” in you. The age difference between us is almost of ten years, yet, I try to be your friend as much as possible. I think I am successful in that because, I notice you seem much more comfortable around me than around our parents.
On this day, I just want to tell you, I love you a lot, my dearest monkey and, no matter what happens in the future , I will be always there for your support. It feels always amazing when I discuss some wicked plan with you, cause we never failed in achieving our goals, together and will nor will ever be so.
You are a really helpful sibling. As an elder sister I don’t have to worry about my conventional stereotypical role of doing every household work but I don’t have to worry about anything, because you are always there to help me, whenever I need you. I love you the way you are. Yes we do fight a lot but when you shed a tear, I feel a heart wrenching sadness to embrace you and whisper in your ear that I am here and always will be.
I am the lucky one to have a sister like you and a proud one too! I think our chemistry rocks when we do it together. Many things in this world can change, but our bond will be constant forever no matter what happens! The very first moment of seeing and touching you is one of those incredible moments that will always be in my heart, as the most precious memory I ever had, in a lifetime!
