Every single day, we Indian girls have to hear so many ridiculous things that it almost makes our ears burn! Everybody (from the young to the old) finds it their moral obligation to pass some comment on us. And you know what? We’ve had enough! So we’ve come up with the perfect comebacks for every inane thing ever said to us. (Warning: Oodles of sarcasm up ahead!) Don’t mess with us, world!
Why HAVEN’T you lost any weight? Tsk! Need tips?
Oh, I missed the memo where my relationship status became open to discussion!
Wow! Did not realize you spent the better part of your life discussing me with other people. I’m really touched! *Hug*
Why are YOU so free?
Enough to hail a cab that will take me far, FAR away from such intrusive conversations! *Polite giggle*
It’s my prosperity showing! So, how’s life treating YOU?
Why should ANYONE “settle” for anything…ever, in life?!
Sure, why not? Wait…you said broom, right? I desperately need a suitable jhaaru!
Old is gold, and I’m Bappi Da! *Does the shimmy around the person*
Is it? My dermat was saying it’s because I’m allergic to certain people!
Hmmm. So when’s your collection showing at Fashion Week?
Ab kya bataoon! *Naughty smile*
Because Mark Zuckerberg gave me a better one. He has asked me to check Facebook all day and see if it’s working okay!
Aunty, yeh sab moh maya hai!
Didn’t you hear? Maggi may not be banned after all. So I do cook!
*Whispers* Matters of National Security.
Because I try to get parties to come to me, but they keep playing hard to get!
