Sonali Bendre is back in Mumbai after staying in New York for six long months for her treatment after she was diagnosed with Cancer. A bald Sonali with a warm smile on her face reassured the fans that Sonali is a fighter. And what a fighter she is! And now we find this on Sonali's Instagram where she is profusely thanking her elder sister Rupa Tai. The post is truly heartfelt and Sonali is all gratitude for her sister who stood by her in the most trying times.

Sonali starts this post with some really inspiring words. She writes "An older sister is a friend and a defender - a listener, conspirator, a counselor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too," The 43 year old accompanied the leters with a visual where she and her elder sister are seen."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.

"An older sister is a friend and defender – a listener, conspirator, a counselor and a sharer of delights. And sorrows too. – Pam Brown" Rupa Tai has been all this and more. 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. Her transition from one role to another was seamless. A dictator when I needed to eat right or take my meds 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. 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 6 months...I am forever indebted... #SwitchOnTheSunshine #OneDayAtATime @ranadiverupa
