Ever seen a movie with a happy ending and thought that would be your life? Well, that’s not entirely true.

Since most of us are influenced by movies, book and TV shows that are usually fictional, there is a lot of pressure on us as individuals to create a “perfect life”

Some of these books & movies show people quitting their jobs and just leaving their current life behind to explore and find themselves. Let’s be real, we cannot do that in the real world for many reasons, one being our parents will lose their shit.

Exploring yourself and enjoying life is great, but you cannot live in this fantasy world just like the stories.

Getting into Harvard University just by studying for a month is not reality because we ain’t legally blonde.

The harsh reality that we face is to study all year to pass our seventh attempt at clearing CA exams.

Every TV show portrays teenagers to be rich enough to buy their way out of problems but in reality, we all know we are broke from the outside… and the inside (too dark for you)

Every family member has amazing relationships with each other while here we receive flying chappal for not folding our clothes or for eating outside.

Late night adventures are only possible if we sneak out or try to convince our parents for three business days but it is so easy for these serial brats to just walk out of their house and come back any time.

Does your mother not call you every five minutes if you are past your curfew? Ever heard of curfew? Yes, we have that in India (10 PM to be precise)

Divorce is such a taboo topic in Indian industries (because log kya kahenge?) But it’s very common to see people accepting the idea of having relationships after their marriage ends.

Saas-bahu relationships in Hollywood movies are very casual but have you seen the real life Indian families, it’s like Saas bhi kabhi bahu thi.

Also, when do these kids study or attend college? Don’t you all have attendance issues?

How are these Hollywood parents so accepting of their child’s relationships? Yaha toh har ladka humara bhai hai.

Our relationship status: Chup chup ke chup chup ke. (Dhoka level: 100)

In conclusion, when will these Indian TV serials conclude? (Baa, it’s high time)

Yours truly,

The one who has no clue about Saas bhi kabhi bahu thi
