Desis Everywhere Are Losing Their Minds Over Goras Selling Tasbeehs As “Beaded Necklaces”

By Zoha | 1 Jul, 2018

We all know that copying is a thing when it comes to high-end brands. But what exactly should we call this? Is this some kind of a “fashion-bloc” or is it “creative thievery”? Looks like Westerners are lowkey impressed with our culture – the reason why we keep seeing it in their fashion industry.

First, we had the “Ajrak” bikinis… Whoops!

They didn’t spare our Masjid ki topis as well!

Errr, no.

Then you had the most famous kambal wala thaila!


Bechare, they have to spend over two thousand pounds to get a kambal inspired bag!

Then ASOS thought tikka sounded too desi, so they called it the… Chandelier!

Have a look at this “beaded tassel.”

Yeah. That seems familiar, doesn’t it? If it doesn’t, might as well go and ask your ammi. Dude, that’s a tasbeeh! There’s also one in nude pink, in case you want to experiment with colors.


But we know better, don’t we? It won’t work. It will always remain a tasbeeh! But like, seriously. Kya mazaaq hai?

Here’s what people are saying about the “beaded necklace”. Some have already started speculating about what the next product will be

Others offered clarifications.

Some are surprised at the price

Woah! Some people have actually started wearing it

Some people don’t know what we’re talking about

There are also people who feel that it’s just a literal definition of the word tasbeeh!

Then you have people who find it absolutely hilarious and oh well, that’s just most of us.

And here’s another one! A cleaning utensil and one of ammi’s weapons, that’s what this is.

What do you guys think of the “beaded necklace with tassels” (read: tasbeeh)? Let us know in the comments section! LOL.
