Today’s modern desi family is a wonder on its own. Our parents are our friends as much as they’re our caregivers for many of us in our 20s and early 30s. Certainly, there are a lot of us who still can’t be candid around our folks, but the number is decreasing slowly but surely. Maybe, it’s the internet because of which – our tech-savvy moms and dads consume the same content as we do, and so we are all slowly coming on the same level.
Whatever the reasons may be, here are 9 things we get to do with our parents, that they didn’t with theirs-
Today we talk about our relationships, crushes and heartbreak, love and more. Maybe not everything, but we do share a lot. We are now more open about our relationships with our parents than they had the option of being with theirs!
Sharing a drink. For many of us, our first drink is usually served to us by our loving parents!Today we can come home late. But back in the day, the sunset was curfew!
Women in the family can now go to work and have a career instead of just finishing the basic education and getting married!
We can now throw or attend a party, with our friends, and their friends, where everybody has a good time!
We now talk to them about how marriage and children are not necessary. We at least can tell them that arranged marriage is not the only way to go! (And not have them almost faint.)
And now you CAN find the balance between making money and following your heart’s calling, without taking up a soul-sucking job!
Now we give each other a lot more space than the generations before us and with the understanding of why it’s important.
Even if you’re not living with your family under the same roof, it is no longer the only way of showing your commitment, love, or respect for each other. The bond goes beyond a common address!
