By Aam Nawab | 19 Oct, 2016

If you love your Khalas and hate on your phupho, your ammi jan has taught and trained you really well. A khala loves you, sometimes even more than her own kids. After all, she is just like your dearest ammi.

1. When she loves you but then compares herself with phupho

3. She is the best person to bitch with when it comes to complaining about your mami
