We LOVE you!
We LOVE how you are independent and can converse with us on various topics and can even advice us on our work.
We ADMIRE how you get great grades and top your schools and universities also at the same time be the life of any party you attend.
We WONDER how great you look when you wear those skirts and jeans.
We RESPECT how you stand up for your dreams and your aspirations even though everyone told you to give up.
And now that we have fallen in love with you, we want to MARRY you!
So, now that we are married, will you please stop wearing your JEANS for something more traditional? ‘Cuz you know you look fabulous in Indian clothes. Also, please give your skirts and shorts to poor after all donation is good!
Why do you need to go out with your friends? And that too Alone? No, no, no.we can not allow that! We love you too much, what if some gair mard looked at you in a ‘bad way’. We NEED to be there for your own protection.
Oh, and speaking of Gair Mards, why don’t you start wearing bangles, sindur and Mangalsutra, just so that no man would be interested in you, now that you are taken! And We would LOVE the feeling that you belong to us and us ONLY!
You used to make such good Pastas sometimes when we courted! You should start to cook for the entire family everyday, every time any of my family member is hungry? Oh, and as good as your pasta was, our family prefers good Indian meal. We sure you would learn to make as good Paranthas as you make Pastas.
We just got PROMOTED and our salaries is now enough to sustain the household needs and our shopping needs. As we love you sooo much, you do not need to go to work anymore. Stay at home and be the Queen, let us go out and slog off!
Now that you have proved such a GOOD girl and did all that we told you to, lets start a family!
Ow! You are such a good person that even the baby loves you! Why don’t you stay with it 24 x 7 as he is still small? Oh and would you need anything from outside as we are off to have a couple of drinks with our friends and as we are such thoughtful and helpful husbands, we will not mind in a least if you ask us to do some shopping (as long as its not diapers or food or cleaning materials, or anything for you or the baby or the house, you would not want our friends to think we have turned into joru ka gulam na?)
You know you have started to act really different, you are not fun to be around anymore. We just find that you are completely DIFFERENT from the girl we courted so many years back!!
We don’t understand how you could be so unhappy when all we did was love you and care for you?
Look at that neighbor’s wife, look how happy and modern she is, why can’t you be more like her?
