Indian relatives just can’t let you be. First they demand good grades out of you, then they try to get you fixed to ‘a suitable boy’ of their choice and next they ask you to make grandparents out of them and let them rest in peace. Here are 10 things you’ll totally get if your family wants 'the good news'.
It’s like they can’t seem to wait to become grand-parents to your child, specially. *Rolls eye*
Blown into twice their previous size, unable to find anything that even fits and puking their morning away, oh why would you willingly do that to yourself?
Dear aunty, why you no bother them single girls and get them fixed, instead?
Looking at that couple, you almost take a dip into your own future and come back to the present much relieved that you aren’t in their position.
The experienced fraternity of older women in your life, read sisters and sisters-in-law, can’t remind you enough of that ticking biological clock fit inside your ageing female body. Argh!
Till then, you reserve excuses like career, finance, maturity etc into your kitty and give them to yourself and to others.
Just like a skipped period gets you worried while it sets their hearts’ racing.
They promise jewels and clothes to you and even offer to raise your child for you, if only you’ll get pregnant. Uff!
Screaming, fighting, crying children give you the shivers. Plus, didn’t you just get married?
Maybe the ‘good news’ is not so far away?
