You are a Gujju if...
You Must Be a Gujju If...
the only reason you go to a temple on festivals is because there is free food.
you keep comparing prices at electronics store for the phone you bought six months ago.
you bought a Toyota or Honda car only because it has better resale value.
you ask for a small drink at fast food restaurant because the refill is free.
you spent 2 days cleaning your apartment before leaving so you can get full security refund from your landlord.
you try to ignore all other unknown gujus around you.
you frequent to yard sales every week.
you use grocery bags as garbage bags.
office supplies mysteriously find their way in your house.
you don't want to buy a printer because you can always use the office printer.
you decide to marry a girl/guy that your parents fixed you up with.
you split the tax from your common grocery bill.
you know more than one plans offered by long distance companies.
you take plain water instead of Coke for lunch.
you take any drink with no ice because you can't drink ice.
you ask before eating any meat "Is this beef?".
you know all the facilities available at public library.
you find taco bell sauce packets in your kitchen drawer.
you take off your shoes before stepping foot in your living room.
you like onion rings at Burger King.
you are looking for dual voltage appliances and GSM cellphones.
the number of long distance calls is more than domestic calls.
your first name ends with kumar , bhai or ben.
you have at least one India made pressure cooker in your kitchen.
put oil in your hair.
you have a picture of Indian Deity on the dashboard of your car.
this thought comes to you "Oh Shit I just saw another guju" when you are window shopping at a local mall.
you pay your bills the day they come in mail.
you buy rice in the 20lb bags or larger.
you have postponed buying answering machine because the phone you are planning to buy six months later has built-in answering machine.
you start spelling your name to the operator like A as in Apple, B as in boy, T as in train... well you get the idea.
you bring over the counter medicine like Iodex and Vicks from India.
you know the current differential in gold prices between India and U.S.
use the credit card with maximum cash back.
you have collected enough frequent flier miles for an international trip.
you are saving more than 30% of your salary.
complain about Indian international airports on your vacation to India.
You have at least 1 relative in the stock market.
You're never worried about what happens if you get stranded in Ghatkopar. All you'd have to do, you know, is walk across the road and find a relative. (Still easier, just shout, "Mama! Masi! Faiba! Kaka!" a couple of times. At least one is bound to be around.)
You don't worry about being stranded in New Jersey. You've been told by everyone that the thing to do at such a time is to open the telephone directory, turn to "Shah" and call any number for help.
You measure the success of a wedding by how many people praised the food.
You believe Narendra Modi is the solution to everything. From your hair to the nation's defence.
You understand that when someone says "Dhirajbhai no babo" or "Maniben ni baby", the "baba" and "baby" in question could be 40 years old.
You either think the garba is the coolest thing ever, or you wonder why the whole world makes such a big deal out of it.
No packing for any trip is complete without thepla.
Winter = undhiyo.
Summer = keri no ras.
Monsoon = have su karvanoo?!
You assume (in marital situations) that because Mara bhai na vevai ni dikri na sasu gave a recommendation, the person in question is virtue personified.
You have no problems with love marriages. You just view them as a last resort, that's it.
You may not donate anything to the orphanage down the road, but when there's a calamity in Gujarat, you send truckloads of money, food and amenities.
You feel a slight sense of pride in Ketan Parekh, no matter how much you hide it.
You think the G-U-J-J-U sequence in Kal Ho Na Ho was rather cool, actually.
You're so attuned to smiling and laughing for no reason at any given social occasion, that funerals become odd for you. (Non-Gujju funerals, that is. At Gujju funerals, everyone has the same problem, so they understand.)

wings of fire - i dont think so we have good shop for those ...
It must be the weather and approaching ramadan. People get cooky at this time.
You said it.
In the movie 3 Idiots, they make fun of each others parents too, why was that not flagged as offensive in the Indian community? - Disrespecting parents eh???
he he he Colt!
hey yaar i missed that Punju thread,cudnt read it.
Author of that thread pls post it again!
pass 'em some chill pill Colt... :P
Colt i hate u :)
But unfortunately some of my Indian counterparts DO NOT know how to do that, i.e. take it in "good humour"... and then they go on to make a mountain out of a mole hill...
Sheesh!!! effin nutcases!!! :-P
any good dhokla,thepla shop around here?
wings of fire - missing the fun :(
kemchooo grrr am not
Do u guys remember the dialogue from the hindi movie 3 idiots where kareen said : DHOKLA, THEPLA, FAFDAS are like the name of some missiles..lol

wings of fire, yes GUJJUS are really sweet from inside..U know they r fond of SWEETS..I loose my mind whenever my hubby wants me to taste any kind of sweet delicacy..lol...but really, they r very sweet and kind hearted people..
a lot of it is true, it's just that sometimes we Indians get so offensive when stuff like this is brought about in the open.
Reason we do that is because we're embarrassed to admit it.
Well if I can make a joke on others, I SURE as hell can take a joke on me!
Khemcho...even i miss that yaar ,sply it is monsoon, nice rains, rember sitting near the bridges , having chai and bhajiya!ohh god!
Greenry all around unlike here!
lol mj must be a gujju :P
you use grocery bags as garbage bags. -- don't we all? :P
u bet wings of fire.. people are very good at heart.. and the food is also good. miss them....
khemcho which one is the new id of pajju?
Tame kem cho?
I know Soniya,
I ve been staying in diff parts of gujarat for i think 8-10 years.
It was just a joke to laugh about :-)
I admire lot many things abt them...sply the food,gathiya and paiye ka chutni with chai in monsoon and bhajiya too...
and culture a big yes for that too...
Guys rather then making fun, better if you share good things about the country, state and community....
