When AIYYO meets O TERI.

If you are in IT industry then be ready to move anywhere in India or may be outside India as well. Somehow Sukhpreets husband also got transferred to Bengaluru .  What to do ,  Naukree hai tho jaana heee padegaa.She also packed her bags and moved to South from North( Delhi) with her husband and a 7 year old daughter.

Sukhpreet's husband had a hectic working hours so he got busy with his work. She was also trying to adjust herself in new city. A typical Punjabi family with  glitzy lifestyle, fashion , food lovers and yes, little loud.She knows very well that being in South India is just opposite to being in North. Here, simplicity, no makeup people , silk sarees, Idli sambhar and more silent. But no other go for her. Her neighbour Lakshmi was from Tamilnadu. A well educated family with a daughter of same age as sukpreet's daughter.Sukhpreet was little hesitant to mingle with her neighbour. For them South Indian means- sambhar, rasam, silk sarees and too much pooja paath. And yes, one word AIYYO or O teri can easily define who belongs to which part of India. You can say a big culture difference.Her neighbor also had a little different perception for North Indians. Loud, who wears lots of makeup all the time, so much oily  food and chaat lover, experts in show off and yes, spends enormously on functions.So both were like two sides of a river which stays next door but can never meet at one point.They were just limited to Hi and Bye.One day when Sukhpreet was leaving to pick her kid , she just left the door key inside. The door was auto lock so no escape. She called her husband to come early. But Bengaluru traffic can never allow you to run on roadhehe.He told minimum 2 hours. So she had no option left other than to wait.Her next door neighbor Lakshmi saw her waiting outside with her daughter. She just asked what happened and why are you in Park this time. Its so sunny outside.She told the story. Lakshmi was a kind hearted lady though little reserved. She could not see them sitting in so scorching heat.She invited them to her house and requested to wait till her husband comes.Sukhpreet was little hesitant but her daughter insisted her to go as she was little uncomfortable outside.Anyhow, she went to her house. She looked here and there and noticed that she has entered in with chappals. She immediately asked her daughter to remove it outside the door.  Sukhpreet was little confused what to say and how to react. As per her its difficult to sit in that house which she has never preferred. Then she saw Lakshmi coming out of kitchen  with Idli and sambhar. She served it to them  with lots of love and care.She asked both of them to have lunch with her. Sukhpreet's daughter was very hungry so she just jumped on her dining table and started eating.Sukhpreet also couldn't control her hunger and had those Idli sambhar which she never used to prefer.While eating those Idlis  she had also realised that it doesn't matter how your preferences are different but what it matters is generosity to help the needy.She has also learnt a lesson that culture, language, lifestyle can never be a hurdle when you connects from your heart.  

Yes, people do have different languages, attire, food but we should not criticize those. Accept it as the way it is. We just can't say that culture we follow is the best. Every culture has its own beauty, we just need an eye to see it and to feel it.PS. This story can always be imagined as  the other way round. Main idea  to write is how people thinks differently for different cultures and don't want to accept it.PC: Milaap.org
