When desi kids need appreciation, one can ably trust their parents to be laid back and not be really articulate in acknowledging them, even if their kid has featured in a Forbes list.
Harish Uthayakumar was recently featured in the Forbes Asia 30 Under 30, for his entrepreneurial achievements. He co-found Bluelearn, the country’s largest student community that provides a platform for students to learn new skills, increase their network, and also apply for internships.
But though he has been in the news for this super-achievement, he is in the news for another one too. And that is his dad’s reaction to his announcement of the same.
On receiving news of him being featured in the Forbes list for his commendable work, Harish shared the same with his father. He expected his father to jump with joy, and some praise would definitely be appreciated. But all he got from him, are two-thumbs-up emojis.
Harish posted a screenshot of his conversation with his dad which looked like this.

I remember the day I got recommended for Navy for the post of logistics officer. I called my dad very excitedly and told him that “Dad I did it!!!” And his response legit was just “OK” 😭😭. My dad is a cutie yaar. https://t.co/WcbS1JTgyQ
