Top 8 things that Indian housewives talk about

Housewives are always thought to love yapping. Some things that they 'yap' about are logical, too. Here's a look on what an average Indian housewife usually talks about.

1

Soap Operas

Soap Operas

All of us would be familiar with the scene of women (men also!) at home watching soap operas one after the other the whole day! Indian women have their cut here, too!

2

Water Scarcity

Water Scarcity

This is a constant problem in all developing nations. There's been no Indian woman who's not had to share her woe on this for sure!

Saas-Bahu Happenings

Saas-Bahu Happenings

Yup yup yup. The infamous mom-in-law strikes again! Just that she's bolder, meaner and all that on a bigger level. Women would sure like to talk out their woes a little (too much) and that's fair, yeah?

4

Sarees

Sarees

VERY HOT TOPIC They're worn by everyone, everyday. Of course they're the main thing them wives talk about! From normal ones to stone-studded ones...yikes, a visit to a sari store might as well be the end of the world. Or of the word patience...

5

Designer Blouses

Designer Blouses

Hot topic! Girls always fuss over clothes--is established. This obsession over intricately designed sari blouses however, is well off the highway. Discussions between the wives run to hours just about the blouses!

Compare other kids with theirs

Compare other kids with theirs

Sure all moms do this. Indian mothers just go a notch higher than the rest is what I feel. From academics to how well that neighbor recites the shlokas on God, bah!!

Religious Happenings

Religious Happenings

This is VERY BIG in India, and with the womenfolk here. They're always immersed in talking or doing things related to religious things no matter which religion they belong to.

Gossip

Gossip

Who doesn't gossip? Men do it, too! Then again, I've seen way too much gossip always happening in the women's circles here in my locale.
