Dear Indian parents, we love you! Since, you’re one of a kind, there are certain things we wish we could tell you but we don’t have the guts. So here goes the list. Hope we still get our pocket money for the next week. Fingers crossed!
Our phone isn’t the sole reason behind every damn problem on Earth.
Bad results? Blame the cellphone. Bad company? Blame the cellphone. Japan tsunami? Blame the cellphone. Guys, pleeeease!
It’s okay to flunk a semester. The world doesn’t end here.
We know you’re hurt and we’ll make up for it. But hey, don’t make us find a new family just because we couldn’t perform in one exam. There must be something else we’d be good at.
We love you too. But we can’t accept your friend request for God’s sake!
Is there something you can only talk about on Facebook and not in our living room? Or do you just wanna stalk us?
Just because our friend isn’t the same gender as us, doesn’t mean we’re dating him/her.
We’ve come a long way since Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. News flash! Ek ladka aur ek ladki sirf dost ho sakte hain.
Deadlines could be flexible by at least an hour or two.
Just because we love to stay out, doesn’t mean we’re not serious about life. Bahar rehne ka matalab sirf awaragardi karna nahi hota.
You could avoid that ‘Kiska phone tha?’ interrogation once in a while.
Who could it be? A friend, our boss or someone we’d make you meet when the right time comes. So what’s with those curious eyes? We were not talking to a drug dealer for sure!
We know we should spend wisely. And we know we ain’t millionaires. Just because we love to lead life a certain way, doesn’t mean we’re gonna make you bankrupt.
And that ‘paise ped par nahi ugte hain’ thing has been etched in our memories since the day we spent your first penny. So just chill!
India won’t starve if we opt for something else than Science and Commerce.
Because IIT & AIIMS ain’t the only two possible destinations for success. May be you never knew memes developer is a real job. But dude, what is different is not necessarily wrong. We’ll make you proud. Please be patient.
Chaar Log Kuch Nahi Kahenge!
We were not born to impress some random Sharma ji. It’s you who matter. They don’t.
Staying unmarried after 30 isn’t such a big deal.
We know you’re dying to get done with the responsibility and the biological clock is ticking as well. But could you please stop pestering us just because those aunties want a lavish reception. Btw getting married is not synonymous with settling down. And no more ‘Hum marne se pehle pote-potiyon ki shakal dekhna chahte hain’. We’re happy, folks. Let us be!
So what if your colleague’s son has a job in Google and we’re still prepping for interviews? Comparison doesn’t help.
Don’t make us hate our successful cousins, please!
Depression is a real disorder. We’re not simply running away from our duties.
And we might even need counselling. May be it’s hard for you to believe but you can at least try.
We don’t need to be a parent to understand what you’re saying. We do get it now.
‘Jab khud maa-baap banoge, tab samjhoge’ – really? Is that how you save yourselves when you run out of arguements?
Food is not the ultimate cure to all our troubles
If it was, obese people would have been the happiest!
People with multiple tattoos, piercings, multi colored hair are perfectly safe to hang out with.
Knock knock! They ain’t zombies.
