India, which is known to have ‘Unity in diversity’ is a place of family values. People here still live in joint families and if not, nuclear families meet often too. It believes in ‘the more the merrier’ concept as far as family is concerned. We all have had various experiences with each of the family members of ours and there is this one factor which makes every other person in the family unique. Here is the list of 10 Types of Family Members Every Indian Family Has!
There is this one Aunty in every Indian family, who is the most curious. She wants to know every single detail about the life of every person in the family. She will call you up when it’s your result day, when you come back from a job interview and even when she sees you with an opposite sex in public. We won’t be wrong in calling her an all-time spy!
We all have that one uncle in the family, who is the complete opposite of the Nosey Aunty. He is perhaps the person with the straightest face in the family. Neither does he get included in family chats, nor is he interested in getting included. There is this group of men sitting together, but he’ll be sitting at the border of the group. He’s the quietest member.
This cousin, no matter younger or elder to you, is the one who has reached self-actualization at a very early stage in life. This person knows the purpose of life and has started working on it already, while we’re here, still unable to find the matching pair of socks. They are so studious and techno-savy that they’re the computer of the family. They’ll score full marks in every test and will weep buckets if they lose 1 mark. Too serious to deal with as your parents will always compare you with them!

Favorite of all the family members!:
This person in the family brings everything to life. Their aura is just so welcoming, that any function is incomplete without them. They have a great sense of humour and are fun to be around with. This person is indeed the soul of the family!
Now, here comes the most interesting person of the family. This relative wants to create many secrets (even if it’s the most normal thing that they want to hide), but at the same time can’t keep it. They’ll spill one secret to ten other people in the family, asking them to keep it as a secret. And ultimately will be in an awkward position when they realise that every person in the family, knows their secret!
This person wants to boast about him/ her, in context of any negligible thing. They’ll boast about the mere dancing or the poem that their poor child can recite. They will boast if they buy a new blazer/ sari, ordinary like any other. They are just so obsessed with self- appreciation that when you’re actually talking to them, you can do nothing, but nod.
This member in the family has celebrity friends. When you want any help and need some God-Mother/ God-Father, you approach this person without thinking twice. You’re sure that this person, with their contacts will help you get your desired thing easily (and if you’re lucky, it’s free of cost)!

The Chinese Whisperer:
Now, this person is slightly different from the ‘Secretive Reporter’. There are no secrets involved in The Chinese Whisperer’s territory, but there are gossips involved for sure. This person will add their own special touch to every gossip that reaches them, before passing it on to someone else. They don’t care about their limits and the reality. As far as the gossip is fiery and tempting, they’re good with it!
You are not even aware about how this person is related to you. That’s because this person is just never there. They will never turn up for any get-together or event or celebration. You hardly even remember their face. You just know that they’re alive (because… obvious reasons) but apart from that you have no clue about their life. You or rather anybody else in the family, don’t even know how does their voice sound like.
This person is usually the eldest or the senior most member in the family, but not necessary always. They have the best advises that help in the longer run, best solutions and are very much respected in the family by everyone. They have great knowledge about many things and irrespective of age, all people in the family love having deep talks with them.
No matter how different they all are, each one has their own importance in the family and it’s fun time when they’re all around! We hope you liked this description and have experienced the same. Which kind of person are you out of the list above? Share your stories in the comments section. 😉
