In urban and rural areas in India, it is customary to refer to older individuals as “bhaiya” or “didi”. The former is used to address elder brothers, while the latter is used for elder sisters. You may be wondering why this is relevant. Allow us to elaborate.
A video clip of a woman marrying a man she had addressed as “bhaiya” for eight years has gone viral online. The woman, named Vini, revealed that she and Jai, her husband, were related and had a significant age gap, hence the term “bhaiya”.
