15 Struggles Only Indians Who Study Abroad Will Understand
Prepare your body for the lack of ghar ka khaana. :'(
You’ll definitely be making loads of friends out there. But they don’t know you like your chaddi buddies do.
That means no more getting turnt on the best desi alcohol and making regrettable decisions with your mates.
No more acting like complete idiots on rickshaw rides just because you can.
Oh yeah, and no more popping out with your buddies for some cutting chai either.
Prepare your body for the lack of ghar ka khaana. You have no idea how much you'll miss it.
And you won't ever complain about your food being too spicy. You'll actually be quite grateful if it is.
In fact, you’ll ache for pretty much every idiosyncratic thing that ever happens at home with the fam.
No matter how much you whine about your bai, you’ll realise how spoilt you are when you leave India and have to do everything yourself.
Not to mention the customary frantic call from your mum whenever you’re getting home late.
You’ll start missing things that aren’t necessarily enjoyable. Like the thrill of bargaining.
Even cussing loses its joy. You’ll learn new ones, but nothing beats the sheer gravity of the good ol' BHENCHOD.
You’ll long for the chance to dance like a maniac to your favourite Bollywood tracks at weddings.
You’ll get major FOMO whenever your favourite festivals approach.
Bottom line: Do your thang, get your fancy degree and come back soon. There really is no place like home.
