CHICAGO, IL – A stick of red lipstick, intense hair straightening, and a simple swipe of cat eyeliner later, the girls getting ready at Apt. 908 are ready for their Uber heading to Naina Khanna’s birthday party.
Prior to meeting up, each and every girl had picked out their outfit and packed their makeup bag in order to get ready together and pre-game at Priya Reddy’s apartment.
“I think I’m gonna straighten my hair, wear my black dress with heels, and pair it with a bold lip.” says Priya Reddy.
“Whoa, that sounds cute girl,” exclaims Sunita Kaur, “I’m probs gonna wear my black crop top and wear my bright red lipstick.”
Rabab Hasan, Sunita’s roommate, squeals in excitement. “Omg that’s SO cute. I’m doing a simple black top with jeans and cute flats. Maybe some burgundy lipstick. Priya, can I borrow your hair straightener?”
A few shots of Fireball and a glass of wine later, the ladies lined up to take a group selfie before they headed out. Upon uploading to Facebook, the automatic tag feature began incorrectly tagging the girls in the photo.
“Wow. Facebook,” huffed Ms. Patel, as she watched Ms. Kaur and Ms. Hasan both straightening their hair and share the same red lipstick, “We’re not all the same person.”

SEATTLE, WA – Wholesaler Amazon has noted sudden shortages of the bindi, a traditional embellishment worn by Indian women. Fuss Class Analysts note that it’s difficult to know whether this shortage is due to music festival Coachella happening this weekend or the upcoming Indian wedding season.
Seasoned Coachella-goer Emily Jenkins voiced her enthusiasm over bindis, “I brought these stickers to Burning Man, and everyone loved them! Also, my yoga instructor, Celeste, wears one all the time. I feel like I was Indian in another life.”
Second generation Indian-American and Seattle native, Deepa Nayar admits the shortage has left her confused and annoyed.
“It’s pretty weird. As a teenager, my non-Indian friends made fun of my chutney sandwiches, funky looking Indian chappals, and the smell of incense burning in my house”, mentions Miss Nayar, “now I see those same people taking these elements of my culture to make a basic-ass statement. I can’t believe Amazon is SOLD OUT OF BINDI’S! Not looking forward to another wedding of Jigisha auntie whispering about how I’m ‘out of touch with the culture’”
Amazon teams have noted customer complaints like Deepa’s and have offered free temporary Om tattoos in lieu of all unfulfilled bindi orders.

NEW YORK, NY – Last week, 28 year old Jay Patel got down on one knee in picturesque Central Park and popped the question to his girlfriend, 27 year old Rima Desai.
Having met at a garba 3 years prior, Jay and Rima describe their relationship as, ‘loving, quirky, and honest.’ While Jay sings praises of his now fiancé , Rima always had her doubts about whether Jay would fall for her.
“Growing up, aunties would always ask why I haven’t gotten my arms waxed yet. I was told how no boy would like me but then Jay came along. He looked past my grotesque deformity and loved me for me!”, says Rima.
The couple celebrated their engagement with a family dinner in Manhattan where many family members were overjoyed, while some remained confused.
Rima’s distant family friend, Preeti Auntie had this to say, “Is she never getting her arms waxed? Do boys not have standards any longer? Sure she’s a successful attorney, fantastic artist, and major philanthropist, but how can her arms land such a great guy?”
