Things Desi Girls Grow Up Listening
Being a desi is no piece of cake. Where many believe we are living the life where they refer to us having the household help but they do not know what we grow up listening to and obeying it anyway, whether we like it or not. Yes, there are certain perks but then the overprotective parents also exist.
So, here are 7 things a desi girl grows up listening to and we are sure you’ll relate.
RISHTAYDAR NEY MAANA KAR DIYA
Sadly, in some of the families, there is a problem of interference. If you live in a joint family you probably understand what we’re saying. Maybe your chachu, or phupho just might raise a question if you get home later then your curfew.
NOSE PIERCING= SHAADI SHUDA LARKI KI NISHANI
Another problem that most women face in our society is that a nose pin will label you as ‘too out there.’ As upsetting as it is various household still go by the rule of piercing noses after a wedding!
AKEYLAY NAH JAO
‘Bhai ko Sath lekar jao’! How often do you all girls get to hear that? Plus, why are tables never turned when all the brothers have to go out?
BETA, SHAADI KEY BAADH
Do it after marriage. Want to go out of town? Do it with your husband. Want to wear a tank top? Wear it after your marriage if your husband allows you to. These statements have haunted most women since childhood.
NAHIN TOH NAHIN
Remember K3G when the big B says, “Bas keh diya nah keh diya”? This is exactly what our elders do with us. When asked why not? The answer that comes back is, ‘because we said so.’ You can never win an argument with them, no matter how logical it is.
BHAI KEY DOSTON SEY CHUPO
So I'm a horrible person and gave in and watched episode 6 before it airs on Sunday. (HBO has got to pull their shit together because of these accidental leaks btw) and now I have to wait two weeks for the final episode. But my god "Haye main margaye" is truly the expression after 😂 #firstworldproblems #forgivemeimweak #gameofthrones
We can never understand this logic, why cannot we come in front of our brothers’ friends? Has our brother befriended some thugs or mafia gang? It is okay to make tea for them and other snacks but god forbid do we come in front of them. Also, if any of his friends are seen in public then we have to get out of their sight so they don’t see us. When our friends come then the same brothers come around trying to be all ‘cool.’
DON’T TALK TO BOYS… KOI LARKA DHUNDO!
Desi families are confused. They don’t want to send us to co-ed but they do expect us to find a decent suitor when comes marriage? What? How?
We’re not saying this reflects the entire society but most of the people still follow these rules. It’s upsetting how some of us can’t have a broader perspective on various issues.
