Raja Ravi Varma painted many pictures representing sisterly affection. For the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, 1893, he sent a hitherto unseen painting titled "A Sisterly Remembrance". This painting was described as a picture of "a Maratta family with a Ganesha idol in the background." There are many other paintings following the theme of a woman with a sisterly friend or 'sakhi'. Several of these paintings formed exemplars for chromolithographs printed at the Ravi Varma Press like Damayanti, Radha, Shakuntala Sakhi, etc. In this painting, Raja Ravi Varma depicts a scene of a girl adoringly glancing at her sister who is carrying a baby.
