Phoolo ka taaro ka sabka khena hai, duniya me sabse dumb meri behena hai and more such insults. Desi siblings are known to hurl such nonsensical insults at each other and we’ve made a list for your entertainment.
Having a sibling is like having a friend and an enemy under the same roof. We can ignore them all we want, but we can never get away from them. People say that things change when they grow up. But not with desi siblings, they don’t. No matter how old we get, there is a sense of competition and a love-hate relationship between the siblings that’s only known to them. As siblings, we say a lot of things to each other to win a fight (more like fights) or to get back at them or just because we are bored. These things can be funny and quite mean at times, but as they say, bhai-behen me yeh sab chalta hai.
They say a lot of things to pull each other’s leg but it is only restricted within them. An outsider no matter how close they are has no authority to tease or call them names. No matter how irritated we act when we are around them, we all know that they are our biggest support and we cannot live without them. Siblings always look at a single child and often wonder how sad their life might be because of all the fun they get to have together. We have made a list of many such things that desi siblings are known to use as lethal weapons.
