North Indian Wife Vs South Indian Wife

*** WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE A North Indian GIRL as WIFE ***
1. At the time of marriage, a north Indian girl has more boyfriends than her age.
2. Before marriage, she looks almost like a bollywood heroine and after marriage you have to go around her twice to completely hug her.
3. By the time she professes her undevoted love to you, you are bankrupt because of the number of times you had to take her out to movies, theatres and restaurants. And you wait longingly for her dowry.
4. The only dishes she can think of to cook is paneer butter masala, aloo sabji, aloo gobi sabji, aloo matar, aloo paneer, that after eating all those paneer and aloos you are either in the bed with chronic cholesterol or chronic gas disorder.
5. The only growth that you see later in your career is the rise in your monthly Phone bill.
6. You are blinded by her love that you think that she is a blonde. Only later do you come to know that it is because of the mehandhi that she applies to cover her grey hair.
7. When you come home from office she is very busy watching "Kyonki saas bhi kabi bahu thi" that you either end up eating outside or cooking yourself.
8. You are a very "Especial" person to her.
9. She always thought that Madrasis a state and covers the whole of south Indiauntil she met you.
10. When she says she is going to "work out" she means she is going to âEURoewalk out"
11. She has greater number of relatives than the number of people you have in your home town.

*** WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE A South Indian GIRL as WIFE ***

1. Her mother looks down at you because you didn't study in IIT or Madras/ AnnaUniversity.
2. Her father starts or ends every conversation with.. I say…"
3. She shudders if you use four letter words.
4. She has long hair, neatly oiled and braided (The Dubai based Oil Well Company will negotiate with her on a 25 year contract to extract coconut oil from her hair.)
5. She uses the word 'Super' as her only superlative.
6. Her name is another name for a Goddess or a flower.
7. Her first name is longer than your first name, middle name and surname combined (unless you are from Andhra)
8. When she mixes milk/curd and rice you are never sure whether it is for the dog or for herself.
9. For weddings, she sports a mini jasmine garden on her head and wears silk saris in the Madrasheat without looking too uncomfortable while you are melting in your singlet.
10. Her favorite cricketer is Krishnamachari Srikkanth.
11. Her favorite food is dosa though she has tried North Indian snacks like Chats (pronounced like the slang for 'conversation')
12. She bores you by telling you which raaga each song you hear is based on.
13. You have to give her jewellery, though she has already got plenty of it.
14. Her Mangal Sutra weighs more than the championship belts worn by WWF wrestlers.
15. Her father thinks she is much smarter than you.

It is for fun only.  All of us are true Indians with rich cultural heritage, East of West, North or South, India is the best. That is whey we are all democratically expressing our opinion without any bounds in a manner that everybody derives the rich enjoyment.

It is fine blend of fun and truth.good.


ha ha ...nice one.I would like share some of my amazing experiences being a sikh girl in Assam.

My schoolmates thought all persons wearing turban was my father.They could not differentiate punjabi males who wore turban and asked about me thinking he is my father.

After graduation I got a job in a school.Initially I was allowed to take classes in lower section.After 1 week of joining  some students of Class 2 were bringing one of their classmate who was overweight healthy girl .So altogether four guys were there to pull her from G floor to 2nd floor common room.As it was tiffin time all teachers were inside the common rooms.When I asked the students why they are pulling the girl.One of them replied  "Mam, she is scolding you."

I said :what?" :)

They told together "Yes mam,She is calling you punjabi!!!!!"


overweight healthy 

should be


only overweight

what happend to west indian wife vs east indian wife?

Roshni B.. (For justice and dignity)     28 May 2011

50 characteristics:


50. She expects you to write poetry about her eyes. Or at least to be able to recite Bonolota Sen (where she is that beauty) and pretend that you mean it.


49. All expressions of love must be accompanied by Tagore in his various moods. And if you can compare her to a Tagore heroine, even better.


48. Her English is better than yours. And she will never let you forget it.


47. She will fight with you but treasure all signs of being married to you. So she will wear that shankha pola and sindur with jeans, and that gold-covered loha with her cocktail dress. She has adopted the mehendi and chooda too. And the mangalsutra is a must slip-on every time she steps out of the house.


46. And yet for all the fighting, her “modern woman” airs are gone after marriage. “O bolechhe” is the final word then. In private they snub, in public they idolize to an uncomfortable degree.


45. She tries too hard not to look Bengali. She will never have the Punjabi oomph, or the south Indian sensuality. But she will persist in trying. What’s more, she will tell you with a big smile that so and so storewallah thought she was a Punjabi today. Contradict at your own risk!


44. Like the accomplished women of Pride and Prejudice, they all sing Rabindrasangeet and Nazrulgeeti, dance, paint and recite poetry. God help you if she takes her talent seriously. 


43. She will never get along with your mother. It is a matter of principle.



42. They will pet and spoil their husbands like overgrown babies and then they’ll ask you not to be a mamma’s boy. The truth is they’d rather you be a “wifey’s pet”.


41. They hate being second to your mother but are still far too controlled by their own mothers.


40. They remove gift wrappers for hours and then preserve the paper under the mattress. If she had her way, she would keep the cello-tape too.


39. She won’t leave a single mirror, free of stick-on bindis.


38. Her brown nail polish, and brown lipstick.


37. Her “practical”, “comfortable”, “soft soled” and not to mention ugly shoes designed for painful feet. Also her ugly platform heels and boxy block heels.


36. Her half cup cha. Half cup or one, it takes the same tea to make. Why does she persist in asking for half?


35. Her unwillingness to drive but constant requests for being driven around.


34. Her cotton printed maxis. Or the way she drapes a dupatta on it to get the door.


33. After marriage she will stop asking you if she looks fat. And laugh if you tell her so.


32. She thinks her FabIndia/ Westside/ Pantaloons kurti hides her flab. And that a leisurely stroll in the morning will get rid of it.


31. She will pester you to try tangra and gule fish while you want just chingri malai curry. 


30. Saris are a must on all occasions and most unattractive at times. It’s invariably a taant or a dhakai in the mornings, which fluffs up around her already generous middle and makes her look dumpy and uns*xy. It isn’t as s*xy as a crepe or vibrant as a Kanjeevaram.



29. She will make you bend in front of her and fix her sari pleats, although you have no clue how to, in a manner that is in equal parts helpless and in equal parts authority. Only she knows how to do that.


28. She says eeshh… but it can get very hissy depending on her mood.


27. She dives for the weekly magazine and hides it somewhere until she has finished reading it. And by then it’s time for the next week’s edition.


26. The overpowering smell of coconut oil or other hair oil the day before they wash their hair is enough to make you wish you never fell for those lustrous locks.


25. Or worse, they use henna in their hair, and leave everything from the bathroom to the pillowcase smelling of mehendi.


24. She will force you to make the morning tea and the afternoon tea on weekends. Unlike a proper Indian wife who’d know that it’s her job to do so!


23. Granted, you wouldn’t want a Mayawati. But do you really want a Mamata Banerjee?


22. You really don’t want a Bengali mother-in-law. Says blogger Jo: “They will feed you enough shorshe maach and bhaat to make you fat, then complain that you are putting on weight, question your virility and their plans of becoming a grandmom soon”.


21. She will gossip. She knows who you checked out at work, or who is more favoured by the boss.


20. She is dominating. She will control the colour of your underwear if she had her way.


19. She takes possessiveness to a new high. And gives it new meaning. A few women having a crush on the boyfriend is an ego boost… but God save the husband if he is caught being chivalrous to any woman.


18. She’s suspicious. As a mother she will check your phone bill to see how much you’ve spent on talking and texting your girlfriend. As a wife, she will still do it, to see whether you are in constant touch with that hot colleague.


17. They don’t like sports. And have less patience than most of her tribe with the sports channel. So what if you were the local para champ in your youth!


16. She prefers stability over risk. So she wants you to settle for a fixed deposit over the stock market and a good MNC over a “start-up with possibilities”. And then complain when those risks taken by someone else pay off.


15. There’s a stark contrast in her, pre and post marriage. So your wife will not be the woman you dated.


14. Her son will always come before you.


13. In the train/bus/plane she will expect you to give her the window seat. If there is just one, your son/daughter gets it.


12. She will spend her life obsessing about her pet and later her son/daughter. Also her bonsais and cacti. And she expects you to do the same.


11. She will expect you to help with the children’s maths homework. Even if she is a science graduate and had three papers in maths. 


10. She must feed the kid during a 16-minute Metro journey and she will preserve a half-decaying, smelly banana for the purpose. As if the kid would get malnourished if the feeding happened 16 minutes later!



9. Same for the classwork/homework notebook. They have to be pulled out and scrutinised right in the middle of a crowded Metro compartment.


8. The really beautiful ones leave for Bollywood. The ones who are left behind are not worth marrying.


7. She is supposed to be a mix of Bipasha’s oomph and Konkona’s intellect. Wake up, kid!


6. What’s with the bad dancing when drunk?


5. The modern Bong woman often smokes more and drinks more than her husband. But it doesn’t mean she is liberated.


4. She might be traveling the world, but she is still papa’s little girl. And no man compares to her Daddy to find a place in her heart. She will always be daddy’s lakkhi meye.


3. She’s s*xy. There something about those eyes and the dusky skin. She looks like she has promise. But she seldom lives up to it.


2. All you can do is ogle discreetly. She is a firm practitioner of mind over matter. She’s the quintessential tease.


1. And yet, despite it all, she is just too good for you. Sorry men.
