So people of Twitter come up with amazing trends every now and then and now they decided to tell the world how it is like growing up a Pakistani. Be it hitting the remote on the table till it works rather than buying new battery for it or finding salan in ice cream tubs, the trend #GrowingUpPakistani had it all covered. Some of them are so true that you can relate to them even in the next life.
SO LET’S SEE!
1. We don’t have a family tree.
We don’t have a family tree because we have a family forest. A forest thicker than the Amazon Rainforest.

2. If you can’t relate to this you’re not a Pakistani.
And not only this, you’ll get scolded for opening up a 1.5-liter coke bottle because it was for the guests.
