“Kis kis ki mummy kehti thi – yeh biscuits guests ke liye hain,” wrote the user, roughly translating to, “How many of your mothers would say these biscuits are for guests?” The caption was tweeted with a picture filled with various kinds of biscuits. From jam-topped cookies to buttery cream-filled ones, chocolate-coated delights to crispy, thin wafers — there were all kinds of delicious selections to choose from.
The tweet was a hit with users, who could relate to the caption as well as the photo of the amazing biscuits. Hundreds of users wrote back to say that their mothers would also say the same thing, and some shared how their moms would even pamper them sometimes with these biscuits irrespective of there being no guests.
