We love our moms.
But sometimes, they say things we just don’t agree with. From constantly taunting and criticizing to saying some downright contradictory statements to what they said only a few hours ago.
Desi mothers are a character to explore!
Here are the top 10 things desi mothers say:
1. Comparing you to friends
“Amna ko dekho, usnay tou pura ghar sambhala hua hay, apni ami ka kitna haath batati hai, aur tum apni almaari tak nai saaf kar sakti”
Nice played Amna!
“Meray marrnay se pehlay shaadi ker lo beta. Meray naseeb mai bhi ho koi khushi”
3.Exaggerating your achievements in front of others while telling you you’re worthless piece of shit!
In front of others: “Meri beti toh hamesha first ati hai university mai. Scholarship pe hai. Aur Masters ka bhi plan. Harvard jaye gi. Admission bhi mil gaya.”
When you’re alone: “Koi kaam nai karsakti, nalaik! Kya banay ga tumhara? “
4. When she acts like she moved mountains in her childhood
“Koi gaari nai hoti thi. Subah paanch bajay uthti thi. Murghion ko khana deti thi. Phir sab ke liye nashta banati thi. Phir das kilometer chal ke school pohnchiti thi. Beech mai nehar cross karti thi. Aur mount Everest climb karna parta tha rastay mai. Aur tum school ke liye time pe bhi nai uth saktay? Haraamkhor!”
5. When she keeps dropping subtle signs for you to get married
“Hamaray zamanay mai iss age mai bachay hojaya kartay thay.”
“Umar nikal jayi gi, koi shaadi nai karay ga phir”
7. The “when I was your age” taunt
Tumhari ummer mai sab kuch kar leti thi.
7. Telling the wrong time to wake you up
Teen baj gaye hain, uth jao. Shaam ho gayi hai, uth jao
When you check the clock, it’s only 7AM.
Here’s an accolade to all the mothers there. Without them, we would be nothing. They raised us, taught is everything we know, and made us who we are today. Mother’s may say all these annoying things but at the end of the day, they do it out of love.
