15 Intense Struggles That Go Through Your Head If You've Ever Hosted A Daawat

By Kulsoom Inam | 24 Mar, 2018

You only know these struggles if you’ve ever hosted a daawat

Throwing a party or what us desis call daawats can be tiring and frustrating. With all the cleaning, cooking, supervising, and making arrangements – it can get pretty stressful. Sometimes you get angry at yourself for even coming up with the idea when you could have simply sat at home and enjoyed the weekend. Other times you can’t help recall all the bad things about the guests you invited – but alas you must host them.

Here are some thoughts that creep up in your mind when you are hosting a big bash:


1. It is actually a lot more expensive than anticipated.

6. (When someone spills soda on the carpet) Crap, that is going to leave a stain! 

 Hand them a towel and let them clean up the mess they created.

7. (After like the 6th refill) Are they eating or gulping the entire platter? 

When was the last time they ate?

10. No one better suggest after-dinner tea/coffee or I’ll drown them in it.
