Okay, first things first - I was just kidding. It was supposed to be a somewhat sarcastic remark based on the typical desi stereotypes of loving maternal family members and evil paternal family members - we've all been down that road. Obviously, its not true.

Ajnu, in our desi culture - sons/brothers are supposed to help out their extended families even after they get married.  There are no materialistic expectations from the daughters.  On the contrary, daughters and her family is bestowed with gifts and love and affection when ever she visited her parents/brothers.
This is why most of us grow up seeing our dad doling out money to our paternal side of family where as we are only receiving from the maternal side of the family.  The rationale becomes clearer when one grows up a bit.  Deep down, both sides care for us and love us.  It's just that we see mostly one side manifesting it more than the other - hence the bias.

Di, I totally agree, I was just being immature. You know, my mom always says that if you want to know how a guy will treat you, look at the way he treats his mother and sisters, and I really do believe that. I don't mind that my dad takes care of his family, because I know that I'd want my brother to do the same for our parents when he's older.

My truth is universal in my world, doesn't mean it has to be the same in your's. For this instance though, as I said above, I was kidding.

I'm more close to my maternal family. Its not that I'm detached from my paternal family. Part of the reason is that my maternal grandparents were still alive when I was born. And also the fact that my maternal uncle lives in the same city.
