The other day, I was having the perfect weekday evening of lying in jammies while I scorch my brains with lots of melodrama, heavy costumes, and not to forget the over the top acting. Don’t judge me, I like my Indian soap operas on occasions when there is no chilling with Netflix (no pun intended). Plus that’s how to wind up after a long day at work. Maybe that’s just me? (I need to learn other ways of leading a sane life). And to all the never ending dramas, there was one common plot: ‘tu meri bete k layak nahiin hai’. With this the hypocritical mother in law meant, how did my son fall for a dweep like you, I mean just look at you. And this common plot of bullying the daughter in law (who I must say, bro get a life, no body is so selfless to get your own husband married off to a scheming woman, just because your mother in law asked you to do so), actually got me to thinking about the whole perfect daughter in laws that all parents want for their not so perfect son.
PS, long post alert!
