14 Things Men Tell their Wives about their Mother’s Food 1

Posted on September 12, 2014 by Rashmi Ganesh

“Somehow the meals taste great because it’s mom’s cooking.”

I’m sure most married women would have heard their husband’s brag about their mother’s food at some point in time. And if you are single, be sure that it’s just a matter of time before you hear these very words that can awaken deep unsettling feelings of anger, just like a dormant volcano that suddenly becomes active and erupts.

So here’s what most husband’s rant about when it comes to their mother’s food:

1. It tastes ok, but there’s something missing


When you hear him say that you can invariably see the eye roll movement which may either be in search of that missing ingredient in his head or to say “what a waste of my time”.

2. That was the best meal I’ve had in sometime


Yes, that happy smile on his face will get you thinking – “Did I seriously get married to this man-child?” And you can be sure that he will only say such things after a visit to his mom’s house.

3.  My mother never used to add garam masala


And this he will tell you with so much conviction that you will seriously start doubting your cooking skills.

4. Where are the vegetables in this? My mom’s veg pulao has….veg…ok forget it


Yes, when this comment is made, you might just end up digging the curry and the fridge to see whether you did after all put the vegetables in the curry.

5. You made palak today? You should have told me, I would have had from my mom’s house


This one comment can make your ears whistle with steam like an engine, and you may feel all the anger swell up on your face. You will keep thinking  and chanting in your head –  why did you have to cook a healthy meal? Just to hear that ‘why!’

6. No one can cook like my mom



That is one thing no woman wants to hear. And by saying that you go way down in her list of favorites. Infact you just gain the number one spot on her hit list.

7. My mother makes the best biryani ever


All that salivating at the thought of his mom’s biryani will make you think – ‘seriously, why did I even try?”

8. You know what, mom’s sambhar looks as appetizing as it tastes


Does that mean to say your sambhar does not look like sambhar? What else does it look like?

9. Can’t you make that curry that mom makes? You haven’t taken the recipe?


When he asks you this question, you will start feeling as if you have committed a crime and a punishable offence at that.

10. When my mom used to cook, all my friends would come over for lunch


And that is a big lie, because his friends come over when you cook as well.

11. There’s nothing like ‘Ma ki dal’


When you hear him say this, you may suddenly start thinking whether it is a new dish after all, or just something that he was fed when he was sleeping.

12. She knew exactly what to give and when to give, and that would be my favorite


Yeah, by saying this the competition becomes fiercer, and you start researching on your husband through all sources possible to know what his favorites actually are.

13. Mom had magic in her hands


And if you had any doubts as to what is in your hands, he will very nicely tell you that you are a magician but his mom had magic in her hands (Please spot the difference here!)

14. I’ve had better


When he shrugs his shoulder and tells you that, it’s like the final nail in the coffin. You may think of punching him or giving him the silent treatment. (Yes, no talking till he comes to his senses, and of course no food!)

How Lazy Are You? 0

Posted on August 05, 2014 by Rashmi Ganesh

Whenever I feel the need to exercise, I lie down until it goes away.”  ― Paul Terry


Are you one of them? Do you roll on the bed on weekends trying to measure the length and breadth of the bed? Are you sitting with food in your mouth till it forms a little mountain inside your cheek?

If you can relate to any of these symptoms, then you have the ‘laziness syndrome’- a very serious condition that makes you sit all day like a couch potato (especially on weekends), and no amount of pressure or screaming can move you from this state!

Nodding your head to everything I just said? So let’s check out how lazy are you?

1. You dropped food on the floor, but you couldn’t be bothered to pick it up. After all your favorite show is on TV and a little food on the floor wouldn’t hurt anyone. Would it?  Nah! So you just sit there waiting for someone to clean it up.

2. Did you take a bath? When someone asks you that you give all kinds of reasons for not showering. Saving water, too much bath is not good for your skin, saving the earth, and what not! So you stay in the same pyjamas all weekend staying away from the washroom as much as possible.

3. There’s a pile of dishes in your sink! Eeeks! But you couldn’t care less. Dishes are meant to be in the sink and someone will eventually clean them up. So why bother? And if you don’t have time for a bath let the dishes at least have one!


4. You just love buying the inner wear. Well not because you love them so much, but because you couldn’t waste your time washing them. Yes! If fresh is what it’s meant to be why not buy some!



5. Hunger strikes but you just can’t let go of the bed. So you shout your lungs out to whoever is listening and tell them what you want to eat. Or you just call up the pizza guy who apparently is your very good friend because you couldn’t be bothered to cook, drops by with your favorite pizza! Exactly the way you want it!

6. It’s Friday night! Your friends are planning to party and get sloshed. But you just bump them off saying you have too much to work on. Yes! you just can’t think of leaving your bed and the sheer joy of lazing on it on a Friday night till Sunday! You are just waiting to reach home and plonk on it!

7. You hear screaming from the hall. Your friends are watching the scariest horror movie of all time, but no amount of screaming can startle you. You are too preoccupied in your laziness to give the ghost so much as a stare.



8. The TV has been playing the same ads over and over again but you can’t lift your finger to take the remote that’s on a table near you, because it’s too much of a distance to cover. Instead you watch what’s on TV till there’s nothing playing.

9. You want to attend to nature’s call in the middle of the night but your laziness has hit you so badly that you just postpone it till morning. Hoping that your bladder would understand!



10. Someone is knocking on the door but you pretend as if you didn’t hear it. You wait for someone to get the door and revel in all your laziness and curl back right in. Besides, it could be anyone so why bother when someone else can get the door. It would be a good walk for them you think!

If you can relate to more than three on this list, kudos! Your laziness is off the charts and skyrocketing into the kingdom of ‘Laziness’. You deserve an outstanding award for ‘outstanding laziness’.

Psssttt! You know there’s one more thing you could add to your laziness chart? Order food online on JustEat.in. All you need to do is lift a finger and your food comes right to you!
