Indian Dads have this one thing in common: being hard on the outside and soft on the inside. So whether it is ek thappad padega or apna dhyan rakhna, there’s love lying in all the catchphrases. It is hard to find love in the former, but according to them, there is love in their thappad threats too.

On this father’s day, we have compiled a list of things we have heard from our dads at least once. Dive in to find out how many have you heard. 

Typical Things Indian Dads Say

Haa beta aur paise udao, paise toh ped pe ugte hai na?

Yes, son/daughter spends all the money; of course, you think money grows on trees? 


This would be on top of the list if there were a universal thing common among all the Indian dads. We’re lowkey amused at how common our lives have been. 

Engineering chodhkar photographer banna hai, Aree hasenge log.

So you want to be a photographer instead of an engineer? People would laugh at you. 

How dare you choose any other profession than dad’s pre-approved engineering? There is simple logic in Indian households. First, you become an engineer, then choose a dream career if you have any left after pursuing engineering. 


AC aur fan sath mein kyu chalana hai? Sirf fan chalao.

Why are AC and fan both on at the same time? Only use the fan.

The fan would alone cool the entire room nicely; why do you need AC or switch on AC for some time and switch it off again. Why do you need both? Have you also heard similar things from your dad? Please tell us we are not the only ones. 

Agar hum humare papa se aise baat karte toh ek thappad padta abhi tak.

Had I talked to my father like that, I would have been slapped by now. 


So there it is. A threat you can’t fight because you haven’t been an adarsh balak like him. It is absolutely your mistake to talk back, and a typical Indian dad’s behavior is to show what an obedient child he was and how you should be the same. 

Thodi savings karne ki aadat dalo, kaam aayegi

Start the habit of saving money; it will help you. 

Whatever you say, dads have the best instincts regarding financial matters and will always advise you to foster the habit of savings. When they say they have seen it all, they quite literally have seen it all, and savings always help you. 


Abhi phone chala raha hai, hum kuch kaam bolenge toh padhai yaad aajaegi.

Oh, so now you’re using your phone, when I will ask you to do something, suddenly you’ll remember to study.

We ask again how Indian dads have the best sarcastic digs to take at you even when you are sitting peacefully in a corner doing absolutely nothing. And why do their digs are so on point?

Ye phone agar ek baar mein pick nahi kar sakte toh sadak mein fek do.

If you can’t pick up the call immediately, throw it on the road. 


Missed your father’s call? See your entire life flashing in front of your eyes? Yes, that happens. Before you meet your father, consider praying to God. Only he can save you from this mess. 

Itna mehnga jacket? Isme kya aisi khaas baat hai.

Why is this jacket so costly? What is so special about it? 

Oh, so you bought a jacket for 6800? What is, even so, special about it? Is it studded with diamonds? We love how half the conversation with dads is just them asking questions and us having no answers to them. Have you ever bought something expensive and hid the actual price? If yes, haath milao yaar. 


Itni lights kyu jala rakhi hai, Diwali hai kya?

Why are so many lights on? Is it Diwali today?

We are sure every Indian kid once in their lifetime has heard this when more than one light is switched on in their room. And don’t you dare step out of your room, leaving lights open. There will be no force on the earth powerful enough to save you. 

Ha ha lo, mummy se baat karo

Yes, yes, talk to your mom now.


Dads would have a lot to talk about when you are around, but suddenly, when you move to another city, you run out of topics. A minute or two of talking is the phrase that comes up. 

Accha fir ja rahe ho friends ke sath bahar? Tumhare toh ghar mein paer hi nahi tikte.

Oh, so you are going out with friends again? I don’t think your feet are meant to stay at home ever. 

Yep, this comes straight flying in your face if you ever decide to have fun two days in a row with your friends. And that is why asking for permission to go out feels like such a big crime. 


Hamare zamane mein hum ek ek paise bacha ke rakhte jo tumhare dadaji hume dete the.

In our time, we used to save every penny your grandfather gave us.

Is it even a conversation with dad if it does not involve a reference to their generation? But their point is right; by the measure, we spend money, we should start saving for unforeseen situations. 

Tum jab baap banoge aur tumhare bacche aisa karenge na tab samjhoge.

When you become a father, and your children will do the same thing, you will understand. 


Okay, why do all Indian fathers have this gun loaded with hurtful comebacks that will destroy them within seconds? But on a serious note, what if they are right?

Nahi nahi hume kuch nahi chahiye, tum bas waha pe apna dhyan rakho

No, we do not need anything; you just take care of yourself there. 

It mushes our hearts to see when you are on a call with your dad in another city, and even though they don’t have much to talk about with you, they will just say this. This might be one of the most simple things, but it means so much when it comes from your dad. 


To all the wonderful dads out there, thank you for being amazing, loving, and slightly strict but caring. We love you and wish you a happy father’s day from the bottom of our hearts.

8 Poets Whose Work Must Be In Your TBR-2023



8 Indian English Poets Whose Work Must Be In Your TBR-2023

Most of us have grown up reading classical or romantic poems in textbooks – it could be Wordsworth’s magical verses in ‘The Solitary Reaper’ or Robert Frost’s ‘The Road Not Taken.’ Although formal education doesn’t essentially introduce us to a lot of contemporary poets, it is needless to say there are many poets that you should know about – especially if you enjoy poetry.

Tennyson might have said, “for men may come, and men may go, but I go on forever,” referring to nature, but it is pretty applicable to poetry (or any art, TBH)! So, don’t worry if you are new to poetry or have loved it for a while – we have done the homework and shortlisted some poets from our time who you would love reading.

But poetry, romance, love, beauty? These are what we stay alive for!

8 Poets Whose Work Must Be In Your TBR-2023

Noor Unnahar

Many of us have felt the emotion in these lines, but only Noor Unnahar can make something so beautiful out of this feeling. A Fine Art graduate from the Indus Valley School, Karachi, this 25-year-old poet is a master of metaphors. She beautifully combines several art forms to make her poems more meaningful – her illustrations are a vital component of her poems.

Focusing on some very relatable Gen-Z themes, she fuses digital art, doodles, Collage, and even sculpting with poetry and creates a kind of structural poetry that stimulates the eyes and the brain. That being said, she is the author of two books – “Yesterday I Was the Moon” and “New Names for Lost Things.” You can also see some of her work on her Instagram. 

The city is forgetting you / which is to say / you should return home.

Tishani Doshi

8 Poets Whose Work Must Be In Your TBR-2023: Tishani Doshi

Image: Ars Notoria


A dancer and poet based in Chennai, Doshi’s work has an intrinsic rhythm – perhaps a result of the fusion of these art forms. She has authored around ten books, including fiction, short stories, and poetry. Her poems are poignant and deal with themes integral to the current times – violence against women, grief, moving cities and the cultural differences that come along, the monsoon, and Love in all its forms and beauty.

Her Books “A God at the Door” and “Girls are Coming Out of The Woods” have some of the richest works based on these themes – the latter was shortlisted for the prestigious Ted Hughes Award. Tishani Doshi has won several awards, including the Forward Prize for her Debut Book “Countries of the Body”; If you want to know more about her work, you can head on to Megha Rao’s Podcast on Spotify – Poems to Calm Down to.” 

Find the poets, my friend said.

…they could sit you down


And tell you how poems are born in silence

and sometimes, in moments of great noise.

Nikita Gill

A British Poet, Illustrator, and Writer, Nikita Gill have published eight volumes of poetry, including “The Girl and The Goddess” and “Wild Embers.” She offers a fresh and feminist view on love, fairytales, and, uniquely enough, Greek Myths. Her illustrations are often in sync with the poems and impact them visually.

An ambassador of National Poetry Day, she talks about how her poems are inspired by fierce feminist voices like Sylvia Plath, Maya Angelou, and the famous poet Robert Frost. She is also one of the most popular poets on Instagram, with 655K followers!

We are the blood

of the witches


you thought were dead…

Karuna Ezara Parikh

8 Poets Whose Work Must Be In Your TBR-2023: Karuna Ezara Parikh

Parikh is a master of both spoken and written words, and her poems revolve around her experiences – she talks about the right and the wrong side of history, of war and its effect on people, and the little things we all encounter in our daily lives. She is also one of the co-founders of the Kolkata Based brand The Burlap People.

Imagine going back

to before the first panic attack


before the world revealed itself

as the flimsy neon-edged thing it is…

Jeet Thayil

Born in Kerala, Thayil has moved cities and lived in different parts of the world in different phases of his life. He has written around 10 books encompassing several genres. His debut novel Narcopolis has won the DSC Prize For South Asian Literature and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize (2012).

In his Sahitya Akademi Award-winning poetry book “These Errors are Correct,” he creates some heartfelt amalgamations of illustrations and poetry. Revolving around grief, loss, and how these affect one over time – many of his poems are confessional. While you get a glimpse of his life in his poetry, you can also see your own in some of them!

Listen! Someone’s saying a prayer in Malayalam.

He says there’s no word for ‘despair’ in Malayalam.


Sometimes at daybreak, you sing a Gujarati Garba.

At night you open your hair in Malayalam.

Rudy Francisco

8 Poets Whose Work Must Be In Your TBR-2023: Rudy Francisco

An American Spoken Word Poet, Francisco is known for writing on themes like love, racism, relationship with parents, and mental health – things we all find super relatable. He quit his job as a statistical analyst to pursue poetry full-time. Although his first book was published in 2013, he had his breakthrough after publishing his first full-length book in 2017 from Button Poetry.


An expert in confessional poetry (one of which is called “My Honest Poem,” and it went viral), he is known to strike the right chords in poetry lovers. If you are a sucker for innovative but relatable poems, you should definitely read Francisco’s latest book, “I’ll Fly Away,” where he coins a bunch of words that “should have been in the language but currently isn’t.”

There’s always more than one way to cross the water

Ocean Vuong

A Vietnamese-American poet and writer, Ocean Vuong writes extensively on his and his family’s experience in post-war Vietnam. Being of a mixed race, his mum was in apparent danger of persecution once the war subsided. Hence, the family had to move countries until they found asylum in the States. His poetry is an ode to these struggles and a saga of settling in a foreign land.

Being the first person in his family who learned to read, he throws light on the differences that come along. Although Vuong is particularly famous for his novel “On Earth, We’re Briefly Gorgeous,” if you love poems, you’ll notice how poetic even his novel is!


His popular poetry books include “Night Sky With Exit Wounds” and “Time is a Mother” – he writes about his queer identity, the feeling of not belonging, violence, war, and the trauma that comes along. If you are a fan of confessional poetry, you might end up falling in love with his work!

If we ever make it to shore, he says, I will name our son after this water.

Amanda Lovelace

Amanda Lovelace initially became famous by posting her work on social media platforms like Instagram and Tumblr. Her poems often deal with subjects like sexual abuse and trauma and healing and its importance. Her feminist spin on popular tales and some Disney stories we grew up with is rather intriguing. Her poetry series “Women are Some Kind of Magic” and “you are your own fairy tale” are based mainly on these.

Her poetry tweaks heteronormative perspectives while she gives her readers a peek into what it is like to be a woman. Many of her poems revolve around her queer identity and witchcraft too. If you are looking for some fierce and bold words, you are at the right place. Oh! And you can totally put Emeline’s Cinderella’s Dead in the background while you are at it!

Grief clung to her like an old, itchy, faded, ill-fitting, hand-me-down dress.
