Relatively Speaking

Family or “nuclear” family is the term used to describe the closest of your kin. Sometimes they may unexpectedly go off into fits of laughter or rage depending on the thing you said while passing around stuff at the dining table and this quality is what makes them…ahem…them !

Tolstoy once said that all happy families are alike…that is mostly true as all families are usually 10 seconds away from either ripping each others heads off or laughing their asses off !

Remember the time when mom was mad at dad who was in turn sick of the children whining because they were not allowed to eat cake before lunch…this was what Sundays were mostly about ! This must have happened once at least in your childhood. See all families are the same – insane, crazy and super fun…

The word nuclear makes your family seem radio active and atomic…like all countries around the world are trying to get their hands on…but you wouldn’t want that because however annoying or super annoying they may seem ( depending on the way you look at them ) you totally love them and would do anything for them :) Somewhere even you know Blood is thicker than annoying “

Families are great but that doesn’t mean that they don’t know how to push your buttons…they tend to have an overwhelming power over you…Mom needs you. Right now. and Boom you go from checking facebook to clearing the table in 5 minutes flat because mom was starting to get mad at you since you were not helping..I can hear her voice ringing in my ears now..”Ms Aakanksha Sharma will you just set the table BEFORE everyone gets here.”  See, moms have this magic power that makes you feel like you are 10 years old…forever ! This being said, she also knows which cup I like my milk in and how I once mentioned I needed an orange bed-sheet and within two weeks my bed had one :)

The holiday season just went and that meant a LOT of family time together…diwali ( and even thanksgiving ) does put up this front of spending time with family and the importance of togetherness but in reality all we want to do is to eat up those sweets and finish up the rituals so that we can run away to a friend’s place to burst crackers. Away from the family. Because all said and done we need a break. from the LOVE…

Don’t feel so bad…this is a phase that happens with everybody…I am sure our parents were like this too…It runs in the family !

And as far as spreading the love is concerned..well I am tuned into Modern Family till the next holiday season ;)
