We sometimes get annoyed when our mothers constantly taunt us on certain things or use some phrases in public that might embarrass us but we do not realize the love behind those taunts and sarcasm. There are a few saying of Desi mothers that I am sure every one of us can relate to.
“Tor do, tor do”.
If you break something in house, you will hear a voice even though no one is in sight. That voice of our desi mother asking us to break everything left in the house too. Of course she does not mean that, remember she’s being sarcastic. Do not, I repeat, do not fall for it. And the best one when you break a glass,” tor do, jb tumharay susral walay ayen gy to un ko paani lotay mai pilau gi”.
The wrong time.
In the 20 years of my life I did not get the idea of waking up someone by telling the wrong time. My mother always wake up saying “itna time hogya hay, isi liay motay hotay ho. Dekho 3 baj rae ho”. And no it’s never 3 on the clock.
Cursing mobile phones.
Bad result in studies, headache, even stomach ache is your phone’s fault. That is the typical thinking of desi mothers. My house is always echoing with words like “har waqat mobile” and “har waqat facebook” and “mera bus chalay to yeh mobile tor dun”.
The “dusri maa” wala taunt.
When the clock strikes 12, you should put your phones aside or your mother will think that you are talking to some girl and will ask you talk to your “dusri maa” later and sleep.I am sure every single guy out there can relate to this.
When she asks you to offer your namaz.
We get annoyed when our mothers ask us to offer namaz but we do not realize that it is for our own good.
“ yeh sab to dunya ma reh jana hay. Akhrat bacha lo apni.”
When she asks you to repeat your statement.
If during an argument your mother asks you to repeat your statement, it’s not because she did not get you for the first time. She is just warning you to change your statement.
Comparison with your friends.
You make on little mistake or you are unable to perform a task, your mother will tell you how perfect your friends are and she will end up with making you feel like a good-for-nothing loser.
“laraib nay to pura ghar sambhala hua hay, or tm jootay tak ni apni jgah par rakh sakti.”
When I was your age.
We should not forget about the “when I was your age” weapon. While using this weapon our mothers do not realize that we know that they are just bragging about half of the stuff that really is not true. Yes mothers, we know.
No gol roti, no rishta.
If your roti is not round no one will marry you. This is what girls have to listen to most of their unmarried life.
