People across India are stuck at home due to a 21-day lockdown and there’s limited home delivery of food, due to which many are stepping into the kitchens to try out recipes. One man, who recently tried his hand at making a paratha, sent an image of it for review to his mother. The conversation between them now has netizens in splits.
Akshar Pathak took to Instagram to share a screenshot of a conversation he had with his mother on WhatsApp after he asked her to rate his gobi paratha. Like most mothers who are supportive and proud of their children’s achievements, she rated his attempt “11/10” but also used the opportunity to mock him.
She noticed a fruit basket near the stove in the photo he had sent, and pointed out that “banana pade pade kharab ho raha hai (banana is getting spoilt just lying there)”.
Pathak shared the image captioning it, “Mother being mother 🤷♂️🤗” and people agreed. The post was widely shared and garnered nearly 1 lakh likes in just a few hours.
The post created a buzz on Twitter as well and many said they could relate with him.

Atleast she rated the paratha first unlike my mom.
My mom would have said the banana part first then would have rated the paratha.

As people are forced to stay home, many including celebrities have been rediscovering household chores, in the absence of help. People who are working from home have also been taking to social media sites to document their experience of the lockdown and what they were doing to get through each day.
