From why you sneeze to that pimple on your forehead, desi parents will conveniently blame everything on just a few things. Even when there is absolutely no rational cause and effect relationship present (and there never is), they will always draw a link. And all you can do is stare at them, baffled and incredulous. And unable to form a rebuttal, obviously, because for a counter-argument, you need a (logical) argument.
1. Your phone
This one is a desi parent favorite.
2. Your friends
Yep. Your friends teach you to misbehave with parents and to challenge their authority. If, God forbid, they happen to be liberal and/or rich, may divine blessings be upon you.
3. The Internet
Because obviously, there’s nothing besides porn and movies and violent video games on the Internet.
4. Not praying
You can get everything if you pray regularly. Grades without studying. A job without a degree. A house without money. Everything.
5. Bahar ka khana
All your bodily issues, and academic issues, and life issues too, are there because you eat out, or order food 7262 times a day.
6. Sleeping late
How can you be successful in life if you don’t sleep at 9 pm?
Your consistency and (lack of) logic is commendable.
Desi parents, sigh.
