I have been away from the blogging world past few days. It is not because I had finished my letters but because I have been working on my personal site. And I am proud to say that I have finally launched it. It is a dream fulfilled. I have been thinking about it for a few years now but my sister Kamna Kirti gave me the final push. I hope to continue to tell stories forever!
Today my letter is to my sister who is the one person I miss the most in my adopted homeland!
You are special! You are my sister and you’ve made my days brighter since the day you were born. I still feel surreal when I think that you are a wife and a mother now. For me you will always be my little sister.
I know we have not been the ones to express love or show emotions but I want to tell you that I love you! We had a lot of fights and disagreements growing up but I always knew you had my back!
There were times when I used to get angry and upset for the constant comparison between the two of us – you being the good, beautiful one while I was the dark swan – but that never lessened the bond between us. In fact, you were always there to tackle anyone who dared to say anything hurtful towards me.
I remember all the fun times we have had. While we have never shared secrets as such, our common love for books, movies, dance and disgust for fake pretentious people meant that we spent a lot of time chatting late at night. I miss them and the fact that you are not close by to share a joke or speak in our secret lingo!
I am very proud of the woman that you have become today! Over the years I have seen you transform in this string, confident woman who is committed and devoted to her family but won’t take shit from anybody. May you be successful in everything that you do and the love between us remains like this forever.
Lots of Love
