What are the things when parents are almost instinctively expected to say these three words the most!
The most important people in the lives of Indian parents are the “chaar log”. And for the kids, their parents are the part of chaar log.
We don’t even care about what these imaginary “four people” are doing in their lives. But all we know is they indirectly try to control our lives via our parents. And, our poor parents don’t even realize that the use of this “log kya kahenge” weapon is ruining the happiness of their poor child, who could be a teen or even an adult or may be a parent himself. Hope you are getting what we mean.
Some examples of things when parents will be heard lamenting:
If you don’t score well in class 10th & 12th
These uncles of family are a curse for all the kids.
If you want to make a band and rock the world!
Your parents wants you to sing in front of all the relatives, but not on stage!
If you are a girl and want to try a short dress!!
Wearing a short skirt for a middle class family & small town girl is like mission impossible in 9D!
If you want to divorce your spouse
Our families don’t believe in such things. Technically, they don’t believe in a law!
If you are a guy wanting to marry a girl elder to you
You parents will might call a baba who will try all sort of mantras to rid you off the ghost!
If you don’t attend the family functions
Family functions are the worst nightmare for most of us!
If you don’t want to get married
Who the F**K will carry on the useless legacy of our family.
If you upload pics of you boozing on social network
This is not our culture. Beating the shit out of your wife after drinking is our culture, idiot!
If you don’t wish your relatives on birthdays and anniversary
In fact, relatives wishing you on your birthday is yet another tough call of your life.
If you don’t get admission in a reputed college
No Engineering, No Job, No Job, No Money, No Girl, No Marriage, No Life and the most important No Logic.
Coming back home late at night
You are just 18 & you can select the PM of your country but cannot take on the responsibility of being alone at night!
