Things A Gujarati Is Literally Tired Of Hearing

Kem cho, people? Gujaratis, a vast community, is believed to be present in every corner of the globe. You pick at any random place on the globe, there must be either a Gujarati family residing in there or must’ve travelled once in their lifetime. Gujaratis are one of the sweetest people you’ll ever come across – from their food to their language. Gujaratis are literally the most avid travellers one can ever see. They must’ve visited even the most remote corner of Iceland through Jignesh Tours and Travels located in Parla East (not sure if this one literally exists. If it does, please give me a good discount for Goa because, bank balance).

But if you are a Gujarati, like me, you must’ve certainly come across people asking you random, weird and same type of questions, regardless of wherever you go. And trust me, I’m just done answering all of those.

And being a Gujarati, somewhere, I have made peace with all of these senseless things and questions. I bet you’ve been asked these, too.

1. Why do you use ‘CHE’ at the end of every sentence?

We don’t. We literally don’t end every sentence with the word ‘CHE’. And this word is used because that is how the language is supposed to be spoken. And this joke, CHE means SIX in Hindi, it is as old as your great grandfather. Try and come up with something new, no?

2. Your favourite food must be Dhokla or Handva

No, I personally don’t like Dhokla, Fafda, Handva, Gathiya, Thepla, Undhiyo, Khandvi and all other typical Gujarati dishes. These are some real great and delicious dishes, but it depends on a person’s taste and preferences. I’m a Gujarati, but I would prefer Chinese or Street Food over these Desi food items.

3. You run your own business? Let me guess, into share markets, right?

Gujaratis are great at pulling off a business. And yes, I run my own business, too, but it is not into SHARE MARKET. I don’t know anything about that field. Everyone who deals into share market or trading, not necessarily be a Gujarati.

4. You Gujaratis can do Garba on any song, right?

That’s right. Because we’re bloody talented. Garba is something that majority of people, regardless of their castes, love and enjoy to play. It is a fun and energetic dance and the steps can easily fit into any sort of music, from EDM to Bollywood. Don’t worry, I’ll teach you.

5. Don’t you Gujaratis get married at an early age?

Every Gujarati girl will relate to this. I’m 23 and I’m not married. We get married whenever we want to or feel like. We might not even marry. How is that supposed to be any of you business? Which century do you live in, bruh?

6. Why do you have such an accent?

Because the accent is there since the language’s inception. And not every Gujarati speaks with that typical accent. Get over it, guys.

7. So your main course is more like desserts!

Our food contains a bit more level of sweetness, as compared to rest of the other communities, but not every dish is sweet. We do love experimenting with food and everything is not sweet. Once more you say that, I’ll make sure I’ll overload you with sweetness and kill you with diabetes.

8. Your favourite TV show must be Tarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma

I’m a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fan. Me and TMKOC are on a break since its inception.

9. So, you’re from Gujarat?

No, I’m born and bought up in Mumbai. And be as judgemental as you can, the fact is, I have never visited Gujarat. Not every Gujarati hails from Gujarat.

Get a life, guys! All the Gujaratis in the house, don’t you agree with me? Is there anything else you’re tired of listening to? Mention in the comment section below. Till then, Jai Shree Krishna and Jai Jinendra. Khavanu, pivanu, garba ramvanu, majja ni life.
