Pretty sure we’ve all Devi’d at some point in our lives! Check out this list of moments from the show Never Have I Ever that prove why Devi is relatable to every Indian teenager.
If you’ve watched the second season of Mindy Kaling‘s Netflix series, Never Have I Ever you know just how relatable it is, in spite of being a teen drama. Especially for people who grew up in an Indian household. The show revolves around Devi Vishwakumar, a first-generation Indian-American teenager trying her best to deal with her teenage problems and struggling to be better at school and interpersonal relationships. Although she is an Indian teenager living in America, she’s hella relatable for a lot of us back home! The show is just proof that no matter where we go, there are certain desi things and will never leave us.
Devi is the typical teenager dealing with everyday teenage problems. All that she has to worry about is how to be a cool kid without slacking in studies while trying to mourn the loss of her father. And this makes her take some stupid decisions that backfire. Although she stays in America, her ethnicity keeps popping up now and then making us all go ‘EXACTLY’! There have been a number of situations that Devi has been in during the show that we’ve witnessed at some point in our lives. We made a list of these moments where Devi’s Indian side prevailed and we were left nodding in agreement.
