There is at least one desi aunty (or more, if you’re blessed) in everyone’s life that has no other job than to make random judgements, silly personal comments and ask stupid questions about your personal life. Be it your neighbour aunty or that door ki rishtedar; these aunties show up unannounced and they just can’t mind their own damn business. Argh!
