I am pretty sure, any Indian who reads this will identify with some or most of the following:
*When the Shampoo bottle seems to be over, I pour some water in it, shake it, and use it for another bath.
*That for me a toothpaste isn’t over until I’ve entirely flattened it out and started rolling it up from the back.
*That I buy broccoli and avocados for 300 Rupees, but still ask for some Dhaniya patta for free.
*That I don’t just recycle gifts,… I recycle the gift-wrapping paper too.
*Our home has fine bone china crockery which is used only when guests visit.
*That I worry about price of gold even when I do not intend buying it!
*That I will beat the crap out of my remote to make it work but not change the battery.
*I get so disappointed if the pani puri guy doesn’t give a free sukha puri in the end when I ask for one.
*That I won’t have my breakfast and starve myself if I have been invited for a lunch buffet.
*That when my T-shirt gets old, I use it as night wear, when it gets older, I play holi in it & then I use it as a pochha.
*That I ask for extra oregano and chili flakes from the Dominos guy, so that I can use them later in Maggi.
You were nodding in agreement and shared a hearty laugh, hai na? 🙂
