Actress Sonali Bendre, who returned to Mumbai after undergoing treatment for cancer recently, shared a heartwarming note for her elder sister Rupa, who was "involved in the journey" from the tome she was diagnosed with the disease. She 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 Bendre wrote. Sonali Bendre accompanied the note with a set of pictures of herself with her elder sister from the time they were in the Big Apple for her treatment. "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 wrote.
Sonali Bendre flew off to the Big Apple in July this year right after being diagnosed with metastatic cancer. Sonali further described in her post 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," read an excerpt from her post dedicated to her elder sister.
