In an interview with our news reporter, Nandini said that she and her brother supported each other whenever required: “My brother and I have been studying together since school. We also prepared for IPCC and CA final together. Our strategy has been simple — we support each other but we criticize even more. When we solve a question paper, he used to check my answers and I checked his. There have been moments when I was losing hope but my brother’s support got me back on track.”
