Smaller.

Grade 1 to Grade 10 (I was scared of ammi).

Mama: Paper kaisa hua?

Maryam: Um. Acha?

Mama: Acha ke boht acha?

Maryam: ... Boht acha?

Mama: Kitne percent?

Maryam: BYEMOMGOTTAGO.

Intermediate to Bachelors (I decided to try honesty and see if my parents still loved me after).

Mama: Exam kaisa kar ke ai?

Maryam: Acha nai hua.

Mama: KYUN NAI? KAHA THA NA PARH LO? KHYAAL NAI HAI? BUS KAR DO APNI BOOKS PARHNA DOSRI WALI AUR COLLEGE KI PARHAI PE DEHAAN DO!

Maryam: Jee. Acha, jee.

*mama prays and prays and prays for her daughter's stupidity and loser-ish characteristics to transform into genius and brilliance*

So obviously, being honest wasn't exactly a good option after that scene.

University - M.S.

Mama: Paper kaisa hua?

Maryam: Yar ammi, aap ne phir tension le leni hain kyun puchti hain?

Mama: Matlab acha nai hua.

Maryam: Ab meine ye be nai kaha.

Mama: To phir acha hua?

Maryam: AMMI. What does it matter? I'll just tell you acha hua because obviously mein to acha he kar ke ati hun apni taraf se, agay ab teachers janay.

*silence*

Mama: Dekha. Mujhe pata tha nai acha hua. Kyun join kia Photography Club? Kya zarurat pari thi NAGS mein janay ki? Degree zyada zaruri thi ki tasweerein lena?

Maryam: ... yaar.
