Punjabi mothers, loud and loving in equal measure, are a collective force of nature. From guilt-tripping to good advice, delivered with a dollop of tadka, they always seem to have a trick up their sleeves to whip their offspring into shape.

Facebook, Whatsapp, she knows it all...even if she doesn't.
Standard response to anything that goes wrong.
The other standard response to anything that goes severely wrong.
Punjabi mothers single handedly give cookery shows all their TRPs; and new names to exotic ingredients.
That's your cue to know "someone's gonna get hurt real bad".

Whether they exist or not, she always feels answerable to someone/anyone for your actions.
