Hugs to you and your wonderful kids. Oh btw, do tell your Dad that he is hotter at 65 than most young actors in Bollywood.
Nainital lady's Potato-lauki analogy was lame. It was extremely rude of her to pick on a teenager in front of her friends and neighbor. Constant comment about her weight was unkind. Also, I didn't see her doing much work. All she did was picking flaws in that family. I like her discipline but it's extreme. Also, it surprised me that her daughter's dream is to get married right away. Yes, personal choice and all but in this day and age it did shock me and I thought probably the girl just wants to escape this strict disciplinarian of a mom.
The problem with Mumbai lady is that she is lazy. She doesn't want to cook. She enjoys fried food so that's what she fed her kids too. I also found her immature because she wishes to be a TV actor who wears gaudy jewelry. She watches TV 24/7 and lives in a dreamland. Her daughter aspiring to be an actor looks like an extension of her dreams. It is nice to be friends with your kids when they are in their teens but somewhere they forgot to be parents. Parenting has lots of responsibility and the Mumbai lady took the easy route.
I found both families extreme. There is no moderation or midway. I couldn't relate to either.
exactly my thoughts Maya
..........both the ladies r extremes...............that Nainital lady(I think I have seen her in Boogie-woogie-Mummy's championship) is only good in her own home but not at Mumbai family's home......she was just targetting on faults of that family n she is a kaamchor lady,that Mumbai lady's hubby was cooking n she was sitting n talking with that girl n a neigbhour
......................n that Mumbai Mom is lazy
, this carefree attitude n junk food habits will have adverse effects on her kids in d future,look at the kids yaar......they r obese at this age
...........n even I cudn't relate to either
