Not-So-Subtle Curry Traits
You’ve probably heard about that hyped-up desi meme page which is a remake of “Subtle Asian Traits.” Over the past six months, the desi community has compiled some of the best memes based off of Indian culture. All of these memes have been posted on a facebook page known as “Subtle Curry Traits.” With over two-hundred seventy seven thousand people on this page, each meme keeps getting better and better. The page includes satires and jokes of basic Indian family traditions, lifestyles, bollywood movie references, and much more. It makes us connect with one another and become more conscious of the Indian culture. On the other hand, the page “Subtle Curry Dating” is like a Tinder for the Indian community. Every post includes basic information about the person, such as name, age, height, hometown, college, hobbies, various photos of the person, etc. It also includes various pick up lines and funny references in the attempt to attract more people. For example, “He will make you palat faster than Raj from DDLJ” or “Are you looking for a 3G? Gorgeous Gujju Girl??” are some of the lines that people used in their post to gain more traction. Who knows? Maybe there are some couples out there who started dating through this facebook page. Maybe many people were able to slide through DM’s way faster. Or maybe people just tagged their single friends in a strong attempt to get them cuffed asap. There are some funny people out there who even tried to message a person from the Subtle Curry Dating page in order to get a summer internship/job. After all, the two facebook pages, “Subtle Curry Traits” and “Subtle Curry Dating” are meant to bring the Indian community together and help us desis rejoice in our traditions. We should keep tagging our friends in those random memes about indian uncles/aunties, discuss those over-dramatic bollywood movies, and flaunt about that cute guy/girl that we just read about through the dating page. Who knows? You may even end up finding your curry soulmate through these pages! It’s anyways #shooturshot2k19 so go listen to your DIL and find the SIMRAN to your RAJ!
