Desi mothers, at times, say things that make you go ‘Hain? What? WTF?!’ because they're just too awesome like that! They can come up with one-of-a-kind taunts and abuses for you when you deserve them (or don’t). So, just to admire the geniuses that are Indian moms, here are 13 things they say! Buy why mom, why?
When you accidentally break something… Tch tch tch!
No kid in the history of mankind has found a reply to this one.
The standard response when Indian mothers run out of things to say!
You failed in your exams? Have a headache? Your car broke down? Glaciers melting? It’s all your mobile phone’s fault!
Sharma ji’s son is also in need of a life then!
Just pray she doesn’t take it upon herself to sew all of your ripped jeans!
Followed by an endless tale of how she was almost Batman at your age and you… Well, you are just human!
This is your mom’s way of saying she’ll miss you. *Aww*
Inspired by ‘Akeli ladki khuli tijori ki tarah hoti hai’. And you’re like ‘Mom! How can 4 people be alone?’
Because her parantha ain’t the thing that’s making you fat. (It’s probably your mobile phone… Remember?)
The right answer is kachre ka dabba.
The ultimate response when she has no other argument to put forth. And might we just say that you probably should ‘dafa ho’ at that point in time.
