Sibling rivalry of the loving kind

Revelling in their rivalry: Asher (left) and Reuel posing with their IGCSE results at their home in Gelugor.

GEORGE TOWN: It feels like the song He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother was written for siblings Reuel and Asher Rajah.

Reuel, 19, and his 17-year-old brother Asher, are not above sibling rivalry as they always try to outdo each other in school exams but when Reuel suffered a relapse in 2012 after being diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in 2008, it was Asher who saved him.
