Continuing our series on Indian parentsÂ (after dissecting the traits of a Gujju mom), this week we tell you everything you need to know about a Tamil mom or dad. Especially if you are a parentÂ who grew up in ’80s and ’90s in Tamilnadu, we are sure you will relate to everything here.
So ring the weekend in with this post and nod along as you identify with every one of these things here! After all as far as Tamilians go, we like to be as unique as humanly possible!
1. You always say complete sentences in English and Tamil

Also a quirk with Tamilians, you will never catch two Tamilians conversing in Tamil when they meet. We always start with English and pepper our conversations with words from the local language.
2.Breakfast menu is almost always idli, dosa, sambhar, chutney and we can make a million versions of the dosa – though schezwan dosa will never be a part of it!Â

3.Your childhood albums are filledÂ with photos of you in glowingÂ PattuÂ Pavadais and Mundus.

You either belong to theÂ ThalaivarÂ (Rajini) camp or you take sides withÂ Ulaga NayaganÂ (Kamal Hassan). In short, you breathe cinema!
6.Only a Tamilian mom knowsÂ the art of fitting an elaborate meal on a banana leaf!
Move over buffet concepts, theÂ elai sapaduÂ is here to stay!
7.Your kids come to you when they need help solving a complex math problem.

This is the dress that makes it to most family occasions and though we like to flaunt our trendy side, every Tamilian woman loves her kanchipuram sari and will grab any opportunity to get dressed up in it!
9. Attending your daughter’sÂ arangetram is like attending her graduation ceremony.
