My Younger Sister's Art



             Hello  Dear   Friends!



   Hope   and   pray   that   all   of   you   all    breathing   smoothly  ,  thinking  ,sublimely  and   acting   wisely   in   all   your   dealings   with   life   and   relationships.




    As   you   know   that   i   have   a  sister    six   year    younger    than   me.   we   have   so   many   beautiful   and   priceless   memories   of   our   life   together   back   in   my   native   village.


 In   my   whole   life   i   never   saw   child  as   pretty   and   intelligent .   We   walked   along   over   the   hills   towards   school   holding   hands   of   each   other .



Six month old ,  hyderabad city where we lived and my father had watch mending shop,WE  lived there  until  my elder brother died with t.b .After which my mother  fell ill for so long and doctors asked my father to change the place ,we moved to my maternal  village ,i was six  


Our   depth   of   relationship   was   amazing   and   credit   goes   to   my   most   loveable   mom   who   always   keep   repeating   that   "shabana   she   is  your   little   sister   ,you  have   to   take   good   care  of   her  when   i   am  not   around  ".



                                                                  Mom and her 

Many   times   i   made   her   sit   on  my   shoulders   like   doll   and   wandered   around   to   please   her . I   start   thinking   of   her   s   my   own   child  because   the  motherly   feeling   are   injected   in   my   blood   for   all   around   though   but   she   was   my   blood,my   little   sister.



     My cousin (daughter of my father's sister on left,  mid my sister  ,on  right  my sister of my husband , my native village 


Like   home   and   village   she   was   popular   in   school  as   a   most   CUTE   and   Intelligent   student  .


putting    little   scarf   around  her   neck   when    she  recited   in  school  assembly  in morning   and  read   poems   and   national   songs   in  functions   everybody    seemed   crazy   for   her  including   our   strict   teachers   who   picked   up   in   their   lap   and   kissed  her  and give  her   chocolates ,no other kid  has such  importance  as  she did.



                        Three  of  them  again  on  my  engagement day ,sitting  on  wall 


I   felt   proud   she   was   my   little   sister  .  Unlike   me   she   was   vibrant   ,talkative   and   center   of   the   attention   where  she   went .   Many    times   i   fought   for  her  in   school    ( little kids fights) without  caring   that   i   will   get   punishment   for   this  .




                         Niagara  Falls  canada ,during honeymoon (first marriage)



Many   times   i   took   blame  upon   me   for   her   naughtiness    and  how   strange   that   my    mother   never   punished   me   as   she   knew   i   was   lying .



                                       Pregnant  with  first  child  (second marriage), u.s.a

When  i   had  to  leave  my  govt   job  and  get   married   because  of   the  bad   environment  created   by   my   eldest   brother  and   his   wife   i   brought   my   younger   sister   with   me  and  admitted  her  in  high   school  for   education .



                                with Ahsan my( eldest son )  Islamabad  Ayoob   Park, probably  2008

She   lived   here  with   me   for   almost   four   years   and   then   left   when   her   studies  were   completed.



          When she visited native village with her one month old baby girl  Dua!   2012  hopefully 


She   got   married   with   one   of   her  boss    during   her   job   and   moved   with   him   to   U.S.A  ,there   she   lived   for    six   years   in   washington  and  virginia .For   some   reasons   her  first   marriage   ended   with   no   child.



Dua  with her father (second husband)

She   got   married   with   a   man   of   her   own  age   who   belonged   to  a   quite   rich   family .

She   is   living   happily   in  Islamabad   now   with   her   in   laws  . Her   three   children  are  american   citizen   as   they   born   there  coincidentally .



                                 Dua  with   her  grand  mother    (my  mother )


We  have   not   met   since  three   years  because   each   time   in  summer   vacation  we   go   to   Islamabad   she  goes   foreign   to   spend   summers .    We   call   each  other   sometimes    but   i  miss   her   and  kids  a  lot.  



                                                      One  year  old  Dua ,studio foto 

Today   i   am   sharing   quite   a bit   of  her   talents  as   she  is  really   talented  ,quick   and  brilliant   in   her   presence   and   doings.   She   does   online   jobs   just   to   feel   better   and   earns  a  lot .

                                        With  her  two  children third one was not born yet 

She   is  fantastic   photographer   . She   is   stunning   painter   but   i   only   have  her   most   earlier   art   when   she   was  in   her  teens,  hope   you   like   it .




                                    her  drawing when she was in 8th grade


     gradually she got better and better ,i wish i could have more of her work to share
                                                    her imagination seems mature 



                                        Girl  beside  the lake ,isn't it a beautiful imagery !

 Precious   Fellows , that's  all  for  now , it is 4pm  and i have to sit  with  my  youngest  son  to   support    him   in   his   homework   and   further   studies  for   coming   monthly exams.

Please  Take  great   care  of  yourself  ,appreciate  the  moment  you  got  to   breath   with  the   realization   of   all   blessings   you  may   be   taking  as  granted   right  now .

God   Bless  You  All!!!

  1. My granddaughter is six years old than her infant brother. It was interesting to hear how protective you are of you sister, who is six years younger. I can see why you'd miss your sister so much when you don't see her for a long time.

  12. A wonderful post about your lovely sister! I do hope you might get to see her in person soon. Or have you considered skyping with her? (google: skype) where you use a tiny camera hooked up to your computer to see each other and talk to each other. But better still would be a visit in person :)

    1. Thank you dear Jenny ,
      since my son lives another city we talk through skype on his weekends and i am truly honestly and gratefully pleased that skype is here to facilitate us so we are able to see ans chat with our loved ones and when i think my son will be leaving for another country this is the only thing which keeps me at peace.

      My sister keep in touch with us through skype quite little may be due to her very busy life style ,it is great and enough for me to know that she is safe and happy with her family though

    I enjoyed reading about your family. Your mother was a strong woman. My heart breaks for her losing her son. I'm glad to read how she encouraged you and your sister to be close. A good Mom.

    1. thank you dear Sandi for sweet words ,

      My mom for her kids was like a wonder woman

      She was only primary school passed but her deep insight and amazingly strong will power gave us (both sisters) a strong base of life and specially she prepared us for facing the world with confidence and strength and it was her most precious gift for us.

      She faced lots of hardships but never let us effected by them.

      she tried to give us better way of life more than the little girls living among ignorant environment can have .
      she stood against her elder brothers to send us school ,they broke up all relations with us for more than two years and then my uncle who was annoyed fell from a hill in deep water of lake below and went insane and remained hospitalized for many months ,it was mom who saw him then , pulled him from water and inspite of being a 50 plus ill woman she put him on her back and walked towards the home from where she took her hospital and during all these months she looked after he as my uncle wife was pregnant .

      After the death of my elder brother mom fell ill and she too like her late son suffered with t.b but by the grace of God she survived with proper cure within few years.

      she cried aloud for him whenever Eid or such special days came as he died just today .

      If i write about her characteristics i can write a book ,truly i wish everybody should have a mother like her with such wisdom and strength

    2. You should write a book! And what a message that she cared for your Uncle after all that. She taught by doing and look how it has molded you. Amazing power a Mother has. God bless her.

      Thank you for your comment on my blog! I responded there. I am not sure what you meant.

  28. Your beautiful sister looks like you. I smiled when I read the part about you taking the blame for her naughtiness and your mother not punishing you because she knew. Your sister is very artistic. I'm sorry it's been so long since you've seen her. Hopefully, that will change soon.

      because i truly know she is far beautiful and smarter than me lol

      I have 'okay ' kind of looks and i am sooo content and grateful for them as being exceptional brings lots of pressures and responsibilities and i am so lazy haha

  29. What a great sister! And I do not think I have ever seen such a pretty little baby as she was. Her own children are also beautiful. But she was quite an exceptional baby! How lucky she was to have you as her older sister.

    1. Thank you dear Angela!

      being a family our closeness was all due to my mother's attitude towards her family .
      She was woman with low worldly education but vast insight and wisdom that she earned from her life experiences .

      She was our exis and our days orbitery ..after school and being free from homework i loved to listen what mom tell about LIFE,PEOPLE and share her experiences and give us advice to alway be confident and self dependent .
      she used to say "do good with others and God will return it to you somehow ,sometime,somewhere.

      Her whole family had lots of field and farms ,barns , but she had only a house and a field for growing crops or vegetables but she did not spent anytime on field as if she did so she had to leave us alone at home which she did not found good so she grew veggies in her home yard and when harvested ,she distributed it among friends and family though the harvest was not much but her heart was so big

  33. Baili, it was nice hearing a little about your sister. She sounds wonderful. Her baby daughter looks very much like her when she was little. Her drawings are lovely, and what a talent she has. She looks very pretty, and these pictures of all of you are treasures, indeed. I am the little sister also and the youngest of the family. : ) I hope you stay close to her always.

    1. Thank you dear Red Rose Alley!

      I can't say how does it feel to be protected by your elder siblings as I though have one elder brother "(8 years elder) but unfortunately he never behaved like an elder brother who loves us .
      I am glad that I made my existence easy and nice by being caring about my little sister .

      You are right her daughter reflects her childhood in features.

      I grew up listening from all that the elder sister is so simple and has "okay" look but the little one is really smart and extremely beautiful.
      She belonged to me so I took all compliments as they were for me too after all she is MY SISTER!

  37. Oh Baili, I live 5 mins from my younger brother and 25 from my older brother. We don't see each other or talk every day but we know that we are all there. I know it must have been hard when your sister moved. I can relate though cause I live in Tennessee USA and my son lives in Calif. USA. Take care.

    1. Dear Pam thank you for nice words.

      Actually the way we brought up here in east family comes first and visiting each other is kind of obligatory more than preference .
      I am since beginning a person who chose always love and family among other options so it hurts me to though we are alive but unable to see each other for while to share hearts like true sisters

  42. You were blessed with a remarkable mother, Baili! She had such love and strength and determination. I'm so sorry that she lost her son to TB. That must have been devastating, and I can't imagine how a person recovers from that. Her love for you and your sister must have helped pull her through.

    I'm working backwards to catch up, so I just read your newer post about your sister. Her artwork is precious, and how lucky you are to have it. That has to be the happiest cow I've seen in a drawing! You can see her artistic style maturing from picture to picture.

    I enjoyed all the photographs from your younger days. Family mementos and memories are precious. You were a wonderful big sister to your younger sister throughout her life. It's obvious how proud you are of her and how much you love her.

    Not everyone is fortunate to have a straight path in life. Some wander around in circles before they find the right direction. I hope that she has finally found happiness in her current husband and beautiful children.

    Love and hugs to you!
