Real life 2 States: AP man introduces Punjabi girlfriend to parents, tweets their reactions

Hyderabad: A Twitter user Vivek Raju from Andhra Pradesh introduced his Punjabi girlfriend to his parents and took to Twitter to report the drama that unfolded. The story that seemed oh-so-familiar to those who had watched '2 States' had the netizens hooked. The tweet has been liked more than 6,000 times and has been retweeted more than 650 times.

Vivek Raju who works at deckrooster.com broke the news about his Punjabi girlfriend to his parents. It was met with silence from his family.

"Broke the news about my girlfriend to my parents last night. We are from Andhra. Girlfriend is Punjabi. Fun times in the house. Mom is okay. Dad has gone completely silent. Having fun observing this once in a lifetime reaction from parents (unless my brother drops a bomb too)," Vivek tweeted.

After the announcement, Vivek updated, "Dad's avoiding now. Hiding behind the phone to avoid further conversation."

A little later he tweeted, "Dad wants her to come and visit him this weekend. Okay no, meet right now it seems. No covid and all. Book flight and come it seems. My video call suggestion is banished before it was out of my mouth."

But to his surprise he found out from his mother that his father thought the girl was from Karnataka. "I thought she was kannadiga because she studied in Bangalore which is still culturally closer but she is Punjabi!!!," his father told his mother.

Things escalated quickly from here and his mother started "dreaming" about her new daughter-in-law. "Mum's being a total cutie on the side. Already dreaming about daughter in law and all and how they'll hang together. Indian moms and melodrama I tell you," tweeted Vivek.


Well, to settle things, Vivek thought of sitting with his dad over drinks, but they don't drink together. However, he dreams about drinking with his father-in-law.

"Both my dad and I don't drink. Ah, we can't even settle this over alcohol. But more than my dad, you know who's disappointed by this? My future father in law: "Wait what, with whom am I supposed to share this whiskey?'(sic)," wrote Vivek.

Meanwhile, Vivek's mother came up with the idea of sending a few photos of his girlfriend to his dad on WhatsApp. "Because apparently, a picture can also get someone to shout 1000 words," Vivek quipped.


He sent a photo of his girlfriend to his family WhatApp group but the group was unresponsive. "No response. Pin drop silence on the family group. Can you imagine? No forwards, no good afternoons. Just silence in an Indian family whatsapp group," he wrote.



After his dad came back home from the office, he tried talking to him. The conversation unfolded over his dad tying his lungi and him discussing the IPL.


In the end Vivek decided to give his dad some space to process the fact. "Done for today. He's not a villain. He'll most probably come around. Love him lots. Gonna give him space to process this. This is gonna take few days. Or weeks. Don't know. Adieu till then. Be on the lookout," Vivek ended the thread.


Vivek's story seems to have hit a nerve among Twitteratis who are responding with their own similar stories.
