Sisters are considered as female siblings or females to whom one is connected by some blood relation or circumstances of birth. Sisters are really fun to be with and one can enjoy sharing one’s secrets with one’s sisters. Being females, sisters are always tender-hearted and affectionate towards their siblings, be it their brothers or sisters. Specially, an elder sister who has to take up the responsibility of all younger siblings, becomes a kind of mother to them and provides them motherly affection along with sisterly affection. Sisters must be respected, revered and valued. In India, the festival of “Rakhi” is celebrated. Sisters tie a piece of thread called Rakhi on the wrists of their brothers. The brothers promise to standby their sisters forever, whenever needed.
In the words of Washington Irving, “A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies, husbands may desert their wives, wives their husbands. But a mother's love endures through all.”
