From savage sarcasm to flying chappal, desi families have a lot of go-to weapons to launch at their loved ones. For instance, a desi mom roasted her daughter for not having a boyfriend, or how another dad sarcastically called his daughter out for being lazy in a music video.
A desi Twitter user shared how her parivaar finds humour even in other family members’ pain:
Does your family also find humor in the moments of unbearable pain?

During dadi’s last days, she used to go toilet a lot and it was mostly my job to take her. So while walking her, I joked with her “itna susu latey Kahan se ho, humen to Nahin ata”.
