There are some things that can only be done by desi dads. Talking with their kids in a formal manner, not lauding them for their achievements to keep them ‘humble’, not being overtly affectionate like mothers – these are just some things which are characteristic of most desi dads.
Another thing which is ‘peak desi dad behavior’ is pushing kids into joining civil services. The moment you graduate, it is highly possible that your father will push you into taking the UPSC exam and will boast about how respectable IAS, IPS and the IFS is, and rightly so.
Similarly, a woman from Pakistan took to Twitter to reveal how just two days after her marriage, her dad asked her and her husband to pursue CSS or Central Superior Services, as it is called there.
my father, two days after my marriage, to me and my husband: waise aap donon css kyun nahi karlete?

Immediately, other desi kids online shared similar experiences and expressed how this reminded them of their dads!
