6. “I remember how my relatives used to call only when I got my school results or after I chose Humanities as my stream – not even on my birthday. My aunt was all like ‘how will you grow in life if you go ahead with this’ and I couldn’t care less. I’m an artist now and I think relatives should only be allowed to call once in 12 months, that too if it’s urgent.” -Raj Arora
