There is no denying that Indian moms are truly a class apart and we mean it in the best way possible. If you haven’t been whacked by a chappal at least once, you’re missing a fundamental part of your childhood. It’s strange because everyone is unique, yet somehow, every mom has a few things in common. That is their obsession with some of the most random things possible. Here are a few of them.

1. Dabbas

Alright, this is one thing we’re sure everyone can agree with! Their dabba collection is literally priceless. If you ever lose one of them, you’re in for a world of pain. Also, if you’re ever giving it to a friend, make sure you take it back. Well, unless you want that friend on your mothers’ blacklist.

2. Plastic On The TV Remote

The remote has to look brand new forever! You try and remove that plastic and you’re going to get into way too much trouble. The only time the remote can come out from the plastic is when you need to change the batteries.

3. Cleaning Your Room

It doesn’t matter if you clean your room or not. She will re-clean it anyway! There is no denying that she does a way better job at it than you can ever imagine. Also, somehow, she manages to find things you thought were long lost! It has to be magic!

4. Checking Your Pockets

If you haven’t gotten into trouble at least once because of something you left in your pocket while putting your clothes for a wash, you’re missing out. They will almost always check your pockets before putting stuff into the washing machine. That’s also because most of us are too lazy to do it ourselves, which BTW, is totally not cool!

5. Stuffing Your Face

There is nothing better than ghar ka khana! Mums know that and they make sure they stuff your face with as much food as possible. Oddly enough, even if you don’t have an appetite, you still manage to eat a truckload of food. That’s probably one of the worst things about staying away from home, no home food. #FeelsBadMan

6. Wanting To Know Where You Are

Alright, sure this can get a little annoying at times. But honestly, you know you like it when she calls! It’s a reassuring feeling that has a way of putting a smile on your face. Our moms are always worried about us and calling you is their way of showing you that.

7. Their TV Time

The biggest mistake you could ever make is trying to change the channel when your mom is watching TV. Lord have mercy on the poor souls who try and disturb them. It’s their timeout and it doesn’t matter what you say! You ain’t getting that remote.

8. Stocking Up The Fridge

If you stay alone or away from home, this one will bring a tear to your eye. Moms love stuffing the fridge to full capacity, much like your tummy! It’s kinda cool because you’ve always got something to eat when you want that midnight snack!

We crib and whine about all these things but deep down, we all know that without them, life would be a whole lot harder than it is! What is the one thing you’ve seen your mom obsess about? Let us know in the comments below.
