  • Leaving from a Desi party is a task!

    Today, I was at a desi party. I told my friend I was going to leave for home. I was saying bye to the other people there (there were only about 20 people total). It took an hour and a half to say bye to everyone. Hadn’t I said bye to even one person, they would conclude that I am a rude person. #MLID. -LuckMC11 More

  • When you reach on time for a Desi party!

    Today, we went to a dinner party at a desi family’s house. They said to come at 7 p.m. … We mistakenly arrived at 7:05 p.m., only to find them still getting dressed, cleaning, and cooking. They were furious, but told us to sit down. That was the most awkward 2 hrs until the party started. #MLID -Gol Guppa More
