“When is your anniversary?”
“What is that green sabzi that is like lauki, but is not lauki, that I love?”
“What’s my blood group?”
“Signing up for an astrology app. Need to know what time I was born.”
“When you set up my Bombay flat, which drawer did you put my double-sided tape in?”
“How do you get a haldi stain off a white kurta?!”
When we asked our team to share the last question they asked their moms, listed above are the responses we got.
Mothers are the OG Alexas, but better because they get our accents in the first go. They are ChatGPT minus the “We take no responsibility for the accuracy” disclaimer – as much as we hate to admit it, they are always right.
Now that the hardest admission of our lives is out of the way let’s get down to what we are here to talk about – your memory. Please include three badaams in your daily meal plan, since you’ve forgotten to get your mom a Mother’s Day present. Again.
But we see you, in fact, we are you, which is why we’ve got you covered. Scroll down for a list of presents you can get your mom this Mother’s Day.
