Why do mothers do that?

So here’s how the conversation goes

Me and my bro are discussing about where he got the huge samosas from. Mom enters the room and starts ,

“Jesse’s phone call has had my head boiling”(translated fron Konkani)

I roll my eyes .Here we go again.

“I can’t believe i didn’t realize it before. My daughter IS stupid. I should have seen the signs. First she goes off and takes up electronics and now she says she wants to do biotech! If i had known before i would have stopped you.....n blah blah blah.”

My mind goes into hyperactive mode as always.

I imagine myself slapping her so called best friend screaming “DIE...DIE ...DIE”.

Who cares if some of them didn’t make it. Doesn’t mean i won’t .

As my mom keeps blabbering on ,with the look on her face as if i’m close to death, i look at my brother for help,for some words to make her stop her emotional outburst .It always gives me headaches .That good- for-nothing monkey just shrugs and continues eating his damned samosa.

I continue screaming silently ,slowly losing my mind because i have nothing to prove her wrong .I sit there watching her scream and pity my fate .

Why do mothers do that?

It’s quite demeaning and insulting sometimes.

Why don’t they just trust their kids ?They worry , i know.But still ,what’s done is done.Let go.

I leave her in the kitchen screaming and go outside calming myself with the thought of my new mobile .


  1. thats what all the mothers do.... once the college starts and you start getting good marks...... evrything will b forgotten.....

  2. Electronics sucks true but biotech will lead u no where .trust that too in nitte where you have to carry leave letters in biotech dept...

  3. @VIGNESHWAR....c'mon ..i would really like some support you can do somwthing if u sat ur mind to it...and there's scope outside...n what do u mean leave letters?

    @Anomymous.....yeah well can't wait

  4. nice piece :) all mom's do dat...

  5. Honest blogs, I like..
    and tell your bro, samosas taste great with pudina chutney :D

  6. listen to "mother" by pink floyd and u might get an idea ;)
    and by the way suggesting on the never ending best branch disscusion its more of which u can cope better with rather than whts best.u never know whether u are good at burning circuits or baking stale bread.

  7. @vigneshwar...electronics rocks man,not sucks. only the 3rd sem sucks. I in the fifth sem and i have enjoyed every bit of electronics i have learnt.

    My mom did the same as ur mom, now she is eating her hat for what she had said. so not to worry...cheers

  8. @dayanand....ur rite...anyway recently my mom met a proud father of a daughter who had done BE in biotech from nitte and has a good job too....i guess that will put my mom's mind to rest ;)
