The Indian soap opera Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? is becoming a global hit for Star Plus, and quite the fixation for yours truly. How do you know you’re getting a little too invested in your desi drama? Well, it’s pretty simple!
You might be obsessed with IPKKND if…
…you say “Hai re, Nanda Kishore!” when you’re frustrated.
…you start speaking Hindi like you’re from Lucknow.
…you start speaking Hindi like you’re NK.
…you start speaking Hindi in general, never having spoken it before!
…you start calling out for Hariprakash to do your household chores, even though you don’t have a manservant.
…you find yourself endlessly staring across the room at the object of your affection.
…you debate changing your ringtone to “Rabba Ve.”
…you have to fight the urge to add a “Hi, Bye-bye” every time someone says “Hello.”
…you expect a wind machine to punctuate all the dramatic scenes on your other TV shows.
…you expect a wind machine to punctuate all the dramatic scenes in your life.
…you start referring to your siblings as “Chhote” or “Di,” regardless of age or gender.
…you spend entirely too much time thinking of ways to kill off Shyam.
…you call your significant other by their first, middle and last name, and if they don’t have a middle name you just insert “Singh.” (The latter is particularly strange when your SO is not an Indian male.)
…you call upon “Devi Maya” in times of trouble.
…you frequently ask yourself, “WWKKGD?” (What Would Khushi Kumari Gupta Do?)
…you debate buying a goat (and not to turn into curry!).
…you develop a massive addiction to jalebis.
…you instinctively stop at “What the-?!” instead of adding a “hell” or the f-word.
…you can’t pass a leather couch without thinking of Arnav’s suits.
…you write blog posts about being obsessed with IPKKND.

Stumbled onto your site thanks to a very recent IPKKND obsession (I’m quite ashamed to admit!). I’m hoping it’s a phase that will pass :D
Enjoyed your posts on the show and your writing in general. To your latest one I think I’d add the seeming legitimacy of “Sanka Devi” and “titaliya” as affectionate names and “khoon bhari taang”and “phatti sari” as insults ;)
