Here’s Why We Dread Indian Family Gatherings

We love our family, who doesn’t? They be with us, deal with our tantrums and demands and love us unconditionally. That’s why we always make sure to have family gatherings from time to time to maintain that bond of love among everyone. But it is also one of the most dreaded event for some, specifically for the young generation who are struggling and dealing with a lot of things in their life whether its related to career, love, exams or anything else because if that is the situation then you are sure to be bombarded with questions, taunts and advice that’ll just irritate and annoy us more. And by any chance if you are an Indian then its double the agony. Wanna know why? Then let’s roll

‘Beta, shadi kab karoge?’

‘Sharma aunty ne mast sa ladka dekh ke rakha hai tere liye’

‘agle saal tak to shaadi ho jani chahiye’

are some of the most common questions we hear every time our family members come to visit us, and our parents don’t help the situation either.

Questions about careers and exams.

Engineers, MBA students, CA students, students studying for boards we salute you. No one can handle inquisitions better than you guys because you are always the center of questions about your career and marks which is basically annoying. You deserve an award for your tolerance and perseverance.

We all have that one person or a group of persons who keep taunting us about our choices. If you are not doing well in terms of studies then they say ‘Beta job kab karnc chalu karoge?’. If you don’t fare well with marks then they say will compare you with other kids. And God forbid if you ever make a wrong decision, then you will hear about it for the rest of your life and in every family event. They might even engrave it on your grave.

Aunts, uncles and cousins giving you real life advice.

We all have that one annoying aunt or uncle who is constantly giving us irrelevant advice about things we don’t want to know about. Even if we have absolutely no intention about hearing ayurvedic remedies or career guidance; they will still bombard us with advice that we don’t need. Aunts and Uncles we love you, but please.

Parents comparing you with other siblings/kids.

Every Indian kid has gone through this atleast once in their entire existence. Indian parents never fail to compare us with our siblings, friends or cousins for anything. One bad behavior from us will ensure an entire speech of how our fellow cousin is better than us. Way to boost our confidence parents. Silent claps.
