Sick of Politics in Family WhatsApp Group Chats? Join the Club
Video Editor: Vishal Kumar
We all have a family WhatsApp group that we are a part of. It’s that one group where the news about chacha ki bua ki beti ke bache travels faster than news on Republic TV. Before you realise it, the chat group soon replaces your alarm clock with all the ‘good morning’ messages.
Family groups can be entertaining till ‘Thanos’ – politics enters your group and snaps the “it’s all about loving your family” vibe out of it. This is a very common phenomenon that occur frequently before and after elections.
‘Hum Saath Saath Hai’ is one such family group where members are happy sending texts and gifs till raajneeti tears them apart.
Here’s a little background about ‘Hum Saath Saath Hai’ family members through the WhatsApp messages they usually send.
Hum Saath Saath Hai
Astro Tauji: The eldest member of the family, who has failed the cut to be the admin of the group. His only contribution is sending daily good morning messages.
Saffron Mausaji: Sanskaari and shudh shakahari. Loves orange and wants to send anti-nationals to Pakistan.
Amethi Wale Chacha: He supports the family in both business and politics.
Good Day Uncle: The uncle who everyone has heard of but not seen for the past four years.
Tulsi Bua: True to her name (like the sacred plant that stays out of the house) she prefers to keep out of controversies, but always wants to have the last word.
Dad: The third umpire of the family.
Me: Obliged to join the family group. But no more.
