I, as a sister and as a daughter prefer a distant viewpoint to analyse about relationships. Perhaps, as I keep my mind over matters mostly, my family perceives that I am a cynic and a stone-hearted girl. I have contemplated about striking a balance in relationships and partially succeeded. I firmly believe that difference of opinion would not change things between two good siblings / friends. Today, I have found time to draw a quick comparison about the likes and dislikes of my sister and myself.
My sister vs. myself
Cooking is an art – Cooking is just another routine
Drive around the city for one entire day – Just sit back and relax at home
Gossip, Gossip and Gossip – Don’t waste my time please
Friends and Family – Family and Friends
Look at that girl! Her hair colour is awesome – Has she coloured her hair? I didn’t notice quite well
What’s the budget for my birthday gift? I have got to plan – A good book would do
Whistle for the favourite hero in the theatre – Let’s maintain decorum
Cry watching love films – Give me a break please
Planning is the secret of success – Man proposes; God disposes
Kanchi pattu – Fab India Kurta
Designer sandals – Reebok footwear
Keep the room spick and span – Our room should not look like a museum
Revlon Lipstick and Lakme Eyeliner – I have got nothing to do with my face
Pedicure, Manicure and Golden facial – Boy cut please
Words are straight from the bottom of the heart (positive and negative) – Diplomatic
That was quite a comparison. Irrespective of the aforementioned, I love my sister for what she is. I have deplored her opinion about various things many a time. However, I strongly believe that the ultimate essence of a relationship is to disagree but to hold hands. I know that I have my sister’s shoulders to lean on when I would require a moral support. She is a wonderful sister and a great friend.
P.S - Dedicating this post to my sister, Krithika Ramesh.
