By Sana Younas | 7 Apr, 2018

A pardesi definitely misses the soil of their own land when they move abroad. But more than that, they miss the culture. And sometimes, the culture consists of certain desi statements made on the streets that you don’t hear anywhere else. Here are a few typical sentences you miss when you are on foreign roads:

1. Gari chalani nahi aati to road pe aatey kyun ho?

Casual frustration. Lolz.

2. Baji aapka dupatta darwazy me aagiya hai.

Bajis and their dupattas. Never ending kahaani.

3. Ye to aaj ghar ki bijaye hospital hi pohnchay ga.

Because some people are just that rash.
