When we were little children, we couldn't wait to be with our parents. We would cry every time we were separated from them and then fast forward a few years, we became teenagers who wanted to stay as far away from our parents as we possibly could. We became embarrassed by everything that they do. Once we transition into adulthood, we forget the things that annoyed us about them and start to appreciate everything that they have done for us.

Till we become adults, we need to discuss all the annoying things our parents do.

1. "ABHI PADHAI KARLO, BAAD MEIN MAZAA KARNA"

This line is an Indian parent's favorite. They say it to their children before exams and expect us to believe that it is actually true. We all know the cycle - School, college, university, job, marriage, kids and death, our parents can't fool us for long.

2. DON'T GO *ANYWHERE* IT IS DANGEROUS

It doesn't matter where you want to go with your friends because your parents will always tell you that it is not safe, especially for girls.

3. "LOOK AT SHARMA JI'S BETI, SHE STUDIES THE ENTIRE DAY"

In our lives, we all encounter a Sharma Ji ki beti/beta that we never actually meet but get compared to till we turn 50 years old.

4. TEACHING US ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF MONEY

"You keep wasting money, do you think it grows on trees?" is a line that every Indian kid has heard numerous times in their life but we still end up eating out every week.

5. WE WOULD CROSS TWO RIVERS TO REACH OUR SCHOOL

Okay, this might be an exaggeration but if you have an Indian dad then you have heard such "struggling" stories for all your life. This is the best way for an Indian dad to make you feel guilty for studying less.

6. "STOP USING YOUR PHONE SO MUCH, I READ YOU CAN GET CANCER BECAUSE OF IT"

Your parents always read something absurd online and then tell you about its consequence. They use their phone more than you do but they will never stop scolding you for it.

7. CALLING US BY OUR EMBARASSING NICKNAMES

"Chotu.." still remains my biggest embarrassment but my father never hesitates to call me by that nickname. After all, Chotu is not the worst an Indian parent could do.

8. TELLING EVERYBODY ABOUT OUR CHILDHOOD STORIES

Our parents never fail to tell everyone and anyone they meet about the time we sang an embarrassing poem or fell into a pond because laughter is more important than our emotions

9. FORCING US TO EAT TILL OUR STOMACH BURSTS OPEN

An Indian mother is a tough nut to crack and she will not give up till we scream on top of our lungs "NO MORE FOOD".

10. "98 IS GOOD BUT YOU COULD DO BETTER"

For a parent, only the first position is the best position and anything below that is rewarded by "You could do better."

11. "ARRANGED MARRIAGE IS THE ONLY KIND OF MARRIAGE"

Since we were little kids, we only heard about marriages which were arranged by parents and love marriage was never an option. Well, it still isn't.

12. THEY WANT US TO BE DEPENDENT BUT NEVER LET US DO ANYTHING BY OURSELVES

Day 1: "Mom should I help you in the kitchen?"
"No, you go study!"
Day 2: "You never help me with anything, kids nowadays!"
(You see what I mean)

13. WEAR A SWEATER OR YOU WILL GET COLD

During the winter season, our parent's force us to wear as many sweaters as they can find in our closet and if they see us without it, you are going to face their wrath.

14. "BLACK IS NOT A COLOUR, WEAR SOMETHING BRIGHT"

Our parents never realize the importance of the color black and whenever they see us wearing it, they think we look scary. Mom, black is a color!

15. LISTENING TO THE ASTROLOGER FOR EVERYTHING BIG OR SMALL

"Don't wear the color green, the astrologer has said it doesn't suit you."
"Don't eat chicken, the astrologer has said it is bad for your health."
"Buy a black dog, the astrologer has said it will be good for your future."

Indian parents may sometimes be clingy, irritating and embarrassing but they never stop loving us. If anything, they live their lives for us.
