Sonali Bendre's Heartwarming Note For Her Sister

Actress Sonali Bendre returned to Mumbai as an winner after undergoing treatment for cancer recently. The actress shared a heartwarming note for her elder sister Rupa, who was "involved in the journey" from the tome she was diagnosed with the disease. 

Sonali Bendre started her note with a quote by Pam Brown -an Australian poet. "An older sister is a friend and a defender - a listener, conspirator, a counselor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too." Sonali wrote "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."

Sonali Bendre flew off to the Big Apple in July this year right after being diagnosed with metastatic cancer. Sonali also noticed how her sister "seamlessly transformed from one role to another". "Her transition from one role to another was seamless. A dictator when I needed to ear right or take my medicines 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."

Sonali Bendre is said "forever be indebted" to her sister. "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 six months... I am forever indebted," she wrote.
