8 Wonderful Peculiarities of an Indian Parent

Indian parents are loving and adorable, no doubt about it. But all that love and affection can sometimes get really annoying. Especially for the young ones, some situations are seriously annoying. And we know without a doubt that it’s all done with our best interest at heart, and that it is our parents way of expressing their love and pride for us, but that doesn’t mean we cannot get a few laughs out of it!!

So here’s my list of some quirky situations we have all faced with our wonderful, wonderful parents

1. Solving Problems: “Subah jaldi utho” the universal solutions to all problems of life. Little do they understand the pains of our generation, which has grown learning to be dead during the day and alive during the nights. But who will argue with them, they just know it all, except that the argument has no logic. 


2. When Someone’s Visiting:Beta poem sunao” because the guest is just dying to hear me sing. The pain only increases if the guest is a relative who has seen us grow right from our toddler days. The discussion thereafter, only revolves around my future. Can somebody tell me why? 


3. Education Choices: Engineer, Doctor, MBA, IAS. Rest all lead to only chaprasi jobs. All talk of dignity of labour gone to…dustbin? 


4. Food Choices: Don’t eat junk food. Ghar ka khaana is best! Home food is precious and I have stayed away from home and so I agree. But that does not call for a curfew on take-aways, does it? 


5. Bahu (Daughter-in-law): Agyaakari, Sanskari (Obedient, full of Culture). So I am not supposed to even talk or look at the hip rock chicks in my neighborhood, not because I might want to marry one anyday, but because even if I pass a look, their habits will get rubbed off on me. Really? Wow, style infection huh! What if I only like the human being behind the style?  

6. Life Goals: Arey Sharma ji ke bete ko dekho. (Look at Sharma ji’s son), who is the universal standard of comparison of all our achievements. You don’t have to excel, just need to be better than him.


7. Motivation: When I was your age…” That one single story of all struggle that your parents faced when they were your age. This story will never be over-used.


8. Deadlines: Graduation at 21. Post Graduation at 23. Marriage at 24. First Kid at 25.  I rest my case.
