Siblings: The relationship with Your Mirror and Your Opposite – Sunny and Sipika Khandelwal

The bond we share with our sibling is like no other – they are our best friends and worst enemies, and also our biggest partners in crime. At times, siblings provide us with our biggest competition, strongest encouragement and remind us of our most embarrassing moments – life without them is boring, uneventful and no fun.

In order to honour this relationship of immense love and hate, Sibling Day is celebrated on April 10 every year. Keeping this celebration going, we went around peeking into some homes, to understand the relationship between these brothers and sisters better. Read ahead to know more about them…

My Miss World, my most precious pearl.


What habits does Sunny have that you would change if you could?

He’s got this habit of imitating the silly acts of my childhood days. I wish he forgets them all…

Day by day, every day, our bond just gets stronger.

What does he always disagree with your parents about?

He always disagreed to let me go out for parties with friends.
