26 Pakistani family members explained through Disney

Published: March 5, 2015

While growing up, all of us are bound to come across these two things – Disney movies and our family members.

While growing up, all of us are bound to come across these two things – Disney movies and our family members. So it is only natural (or not) to try and see if there is some sort of psychic connection between these two integral parts of our lives. I am sure there is something!

Here are how all our family members can be explained through Disney. We all have:

1) The anxious mother who is scared that you won’t end up becoming the billionaire tycoon she thought you would be.

2) The angry father who boils with rage after hearing that his child wants to go into acting/writing/sports/culinary arts/fine arts/anything non-mainstream.

3) The sibling who is known to throw tantrums.

4) The khala (maternal aunt) who teases us during our teenage years and asks us all about our *wink*  boyfriends/girlfriends. Sigh.

5) The mamoo (maternal uncle) who is ultra-sensitive about cricket/politics and bursts into angry fits whenever the topic is discussed.

6) The chacha (paternal uncle) who keeps an eye on you and catches you (most of the time) sneaking out of the house late at night, going on a date or driving rashly.

    Kudos Mr.Lodhi…..what an artistic refreshing presentation of human relations,
    of our dear and near ones,from our own mental prism.Cartoons on disney format
    are very live and hardly needs any verbal explanations at least for viewers of our
    Indian sub-continent as our social values and experiences are alike.How realistic
    is the thinking of one settled abroad about relatives in native place,much to
    scorn about needlessly.Hope such presentations contribute to lift human values
    in thought and action. Thanks.Recommend
