You know you are a 21st century maharashtrian girl…..

by Abha Deshkar


# When your mom explains “ रोळी म्हणजे  hole  वाली परात” !! God bless you if you dont know what a परात is……

# When after a long head bath of 2 hours your grandmother exclaims…”आता ठीक आहे…सासू बघू कसा खपवून घेते हे”

# when “चार चौघान समोर” somebody asks you “चिरोटे आवडतात का ग??” and you say “wots dat??” and when you actually see what it is…you say ”ओ हे!!! याला चिरोटे म्हणतात का????” …be assured you are gonna be rubbed on this for the rest of your life!

# दीड??? अडीच????  oh crap!! साडे दोन!  😉

# When it takes some crazy marathi actor and his shady dialog “धुत्या हात म्हणजे डावा हात” for you to remember that डावा  means left…

# When a Bihari bhaiyya and the “thekedar of marathi-asmita“ fight you give a damn…

# When you wonder… “आत्या च्या नवर्‍याला मामा का म्हणतात???”

# When you watch  the baila hero of “amar prem” at 9pm on TV with your family but your heart is dying to catch the latest episode of- Gossip girl…xoxo 🙁

# When once in a blue moon you enter your kitchen to make something and leave it so dirty that next time your granny offers to make things for you…

# When someone gives you a phone no. in marathi…and you write down….    “ २८ ३७  सदोसाष्टा शहेइन्शि"

# When you still write such things and put up on the blog…when you know your mother is going to say…”this is nothing to be proud of abha!”  🙂 🙂

u forgot that they are more interested in marrying non marathi boys and are ultra fascinated by cultureless spoilt unloving freaks in general .. no respect and longing for their culture and happy to generalize that every person proud of his maharashtrian heritage is associated with some politics … also very easily forgetful of their parents teaching and dreams for them …

Nice one Abbyyyyy 🙂 🙂 many of them apply to every girl, not just Maharashtrian 🙂

@ Prajal : thanks for tall the praise! But ajun vel aahe I feel…

@ Anon
I dont agree with any thing that you said….

If at all maharahtrian girls are looking for non marathi guys… guys are giving us the reasons… (assuming that u r a maharashtrain)

“ultra fascinated by cultureless spoilt unloving freaks in general “….firstly dont generalize!!

secondly what about the maharashtrian guys who are “ultra fascinated by cultureless spoilt unloving bitches who are using you and you dont even realize it ”

and thirdly any personal experience????

“no respect and longing for their culture….also very easily forgetful of their parents teaching and dreams for them …” who told you that?? you have avery big MISUNDERSTANDING dude!!

nyways thanks for reading the blog….and sharing your views…gives me some food for thought 🙂

@shweta : totally re! Just that Im more comfortable abt writing abt myself and didnt wanna generalize! 🙂
