I know this might sound a little ridiculous but here’s the thing: As comfy and harmless these footwear might look, the truth is quite the opposite! In fact every year millions of Indian children suffer at the hands of chappals. If you grew up without getting hit by a chappal then you had a great childhood 🙂


4. Belt:

Now, this is something everyone had to face sometime or the other in their life. Having desi parents you get used to your Mom hurling things at you but once in a blue moon, you cross paths with your Dad that ends up in something you regret immediately. Only the lucky few avoid the belt. Are you one of them? Let us know in the comments below.

3. Belan/Rolling Pin:

The rolling pin or the belan is not nearly as innocent as it looks. Every desi kid worth his salt can testify to the belan’s offensive prowess. This is something you should never gift your parents, lest it be hurled right at your head. Don’t make a decision you will regret later. Gift your parents anything except this rolling pin.

2. Dal Masher/Ghotni:

The adequately sized handle with the big mallet like head makes this kitchen utensil perfect for mashing vegetables and lentils. This also makes it a handy weapon in the arsenal of Indian moms when it comes to disciplining kids. Gift your mom a ghotni at your own risk and don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Last but definitely not the list

1. Broom:

This is perhaps the favorite of desi moms. Extremely handy cleaning device and has a great aerial ability to hit moving targets like a disobedient kid!  Haven’t been hit by a jhadu yet?
