Mothers know best, but we all know Indian mothers know better than the rest. Having said that, there is no way us mere mortals will ever understand what they think and what they say. Indian mothers say and do things that are peculiar to them and them only, and most of the times they are truly hilarious af gems. So, here’s a list of things only Indian moms say/do!
Calling You By Your Nickname in Public
There is obviously no motor control, because you can hear moms screaming “dollyyyyyy, goluuuu” etc. etc. on nearly every street.
Wake You Up At an Unreasonable Hour
How many times has your mother woken you up saying its 8, only for you to realise it is only 7…yeah we have lost count too….
At Your Age….
We have all experienced this lecture, and coming from Indian mothers this is mostly directed towards their daughters that when they were that young they were already taking care of an entire household.
Question Your Shopping Habits
It’s like they were never young; it is a known and universal fact that nothing is too much when it comes to clothes and shopping (at least for the girls…) and the question remains the same “why do you need to go for shopping, you already have enough clothes”
Ask Your Dad
Evasive manoeuvre 101 and no one can do it better than your mother. If there is anything your mom ever wants to avoid giving you an answer for the best tactic she has is “ask your dad”….it works every time too
Bas Ek Aur
Might seem annoying when she is doing this, but honestly this is one of the most adorable things Indian mothers do….feed you till you feel full or till they think you are full.
Scold Us For Not Picking Up the Phone, But Doesn’t Know Where Hers Is
This might be the most annoying thing ever, but you get a lecture on safety if you miss even one call, but more than 50% of the times, your mom doesn’t even know where her phone is
Although hilarious and peculiar, we hope Indian mothers stay the same and never change!
