We fight. We get over it. We fight again. So on and on, it continues. This bitter-sweet relationship that a brother and sister share dates way back to the beginning of time. There are some things anyone growing up with a sibling must’ve experienced firsthand.
All these occasions are related to different places. Dinner time mess, fighting for video games, or more. There are some things every brother-sister would relate to. On this occasion of Raksha Bandhan, here are 14 such things. So put on your thinking hat and remember all those times when you are in these spots. We bet you would need an extra pair of hands to continue counting.
So, why wait? Let’s see what we have in store for you.
#1 Fighting over the remote
Remote wars are no child’s play! Not as cute as it sounds. Actually pretty serious bouts of sibling rivalry.

#2 Fighting over food
Be it the last piece of jalebi or the last aloo parantha, no one gets to have it without putting up a fight.
#3 Fighting over gifts
Best things come in small packages, they said. But it didn’t stop us from comparing the gifts and see who got the bigger one!
#4 Fighting over who rode in the front seat
‘Mom, it’s not fair. Today is my turn to ride in the front seat, his was yesterday’
Last but definitely not the least
#5 Fighting over ‘being the favorite kid’
Kid 1: Mom, I got an A+ in Maths.
Kid 2: I won a gold in the 200m sprint.
*Mom in a dilemma*
#6 Mimicking each other
#7 Elder and younger brothers
Here I come!
No, you don’t.
#8 Home Alone
The classic fight!
That mimicking game that always pinches the wrong nerve, and gets mom involved, and sometimes ends with a war of words or just shades that are thrown for days.
#9 The “I Told You So” Moments
Admit it, we’ve all had those moments when we told our siblings something was a bad idea, only to watch them go ahead and do it anyway. And when it doesn’t work out, the “I told you so” feels so satisfying!
There is no other joy of having a sibling. Siblings fight and always protect each other when the time comes. Doesn’t matter who’s against them. When they get together, they’re invincible.
#10 Childhood Mischief:
Remember those days of mischievous pranks and innocent secrets? From stealing cookies to plotting against parents, every brother-sister duo shares a trove of childhood stories that still bring smiles to their faces.
#11 Endless Fights, Endless Love:
Sure, siblings argue and fight, often over the silliest things. But beneath those squabbles lies an unbreakable connection. The same sibling who drives you crazy is also the one who stands up for you when it matters most.
#12 The Protective Instinct:
No matter how old you get, the protective older sibling or the caring younger one is always there. Whether it’s giving advice about relationships or just lending a listening ear, the bond of protection runs deep.
#13 Insider Jokes and Nicknames:
Years of shared experiences result in a treasure trove of inside jokes and unique nicknames. These little things serve as a reminder of the special moments only siblings can understand.
#14 Borrowed Clothes, Stolen Style:
The eternal battle for clothes is a classic sibling tale. Sisters raid their brother’s closets for comfy tees, while brothers pretend not to care about their missing hoodies, secretly proud of their sibling’s style choices.
