On Diwali, Bureaucrat’s “Hugging Our Parents Is A Big Deal” Post Is A Hit

Bureaucrat Awanish Sharan shared artist Nidhi Narwal’s post on Twitter.

Awanish Sharan, an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer, often shares motivational posts on his official Twitter handle. In one similar incident, he shared a post of artist Nidhi Narwal on what it means to be born into an Indian middle-class household.

The video was originally uploaded by Kommune India on YouTube. In the two-minute, eight second long clip uploaded by Mr Sharan, the artist is seen saying “I come from a middle class family where old t-shirts are turned into mops. And if a container of Bournvita gets emptied, it is re-filled with lentils.”

She adds that love is expressed very differently in a middle-class Indian household. “Hugging our parents is a big deal for us,” said Ms Narwal. She continued, “Sometimes they fight for us and sometimes they ask us to fight for ourselves so that we can never become helpless or hopeless.”
