Unwritten rule by Indians
In general relations there are few thing we take for grated with our relatives, friends, colleagues etc.
Few of these things can be understood but few are really not.
Here is one which I really can’t understand.
As Indian who is staying outside India I face this question every time I call back home. (not to parents, but to other relatives where my frequency of calling is very poor I think once in 1-2 months)
“Tu Call hi nahi karta, bhul gaya hamko? ” (translation: you don’ t call, have you forgotten us?)
Well is there any unwritten rule or culture that Indian who is staying outside India is the only one who is responsible to keep in touch/ calling to the folks back home?
If he/she doesn’t call it means he/she forgotten them, isn’t that one sided?
Can’t he/she say that folks back home has forgotten him/her they are not calling?
Why this assumption?
Note: Don’t assume that he/she is rich or has free calling to India.---
