13 Types Of Messages All Desi Parents Share On Whatsapp

By Momina Mindeel | 16 Oct, 2016

Desi parents are an amalgamation of unconditional love, sometimes to the point of suffocation, a little bit of insecurity and immense adorableness. With technology rapidly replacing all the conventional modes of communications in our lives, the way they communicate their love and concerns to us have changed as well, with Whatsapp and Facebook overtaking everything else.

This is how desi parents have adapted to Whatsapp messaging:

 

1. The mandatory good morning messages enlisting the benefits of waking up early
