Every girl has heard a line or two similar to the ones mentioned below sometime in their lives. The reason may entirely be genuine, but to “aunties” it’s just an excuse. Larki ko toh bas patla, lamba and gora hona chaiye. who cares about anything else? Here are some of the things that girls who are a bit on the heavier side get to hear:
1. Patli hojao nahi to koi shadi nahi karayga!
How many times have you heard this? At times, it feels that your family members are here only to taunt you about your weight. They feel that if you’re not slim like Kareena, you won’t get a Saif.
2. Do bacho ki amma lagti ho!
Be it your family members, your friends or even your pets everyone shares the same mentality. Just when you start to develop a tarbooz instead of your stomach, everyone has their tongue rolling.
3. Beta tum Zubaida Aapa ka show nahi daikhti? Bohat suljhi hoi khatoon hain
Zubaida Aapa is the role model of every other desi aunty. She and her totkas… Almost every other obese girl would know by heart all her totkas and their effectiveness.
4. Body Builder lag rahi ho
Brothers are always in search of a reason to tease you. If you’re obese it’s like their mind’s sarcastic mood is always coming up with new things to tease you. Apparently, if you have dolay, you’re no less than Salman Khan.
5. Abhi itni moti ho to shadi kay baad kya hoga tumhara
Finding reasons to taunt is probably the best time pass a desi aunty has. If you’re someone who’s a little chubby or even slightly fat yeh jumla to aapkay dil o dimagh par fevicol say chipka hoa hoga. Because since you’re now married your health is not an issue anymore.
6. Jhaaro lagao, shayad patli hojao
Jhaaro pocha is probably the only sports our elders are aware of. Just when your clothes start to seem a bit tight, you’re handed a jhaaro for the rest of the week. Trust me, I know in our hearts we have other ways we want to use the jhaaro in.
7. Poora din baithi rehti ho, kuch hila karo tou kum hogi
It’s not my fault you wanted me to become a doctor. Just because I have to sit all day because of my job and I’ve gained a few extra pounds they will haunt you until Aunty Shabnam from next door approves of me still being young and beautiful.
Girls! You are beautiful just the way you are. Losing weight is something we should do for ourselves and not for the approval of Aunty Shabnam who lives next door and visits only when she’s out of sugar.
