The screenshot was a WhatsApp message from her father, whose contact was saved as "Are Papa!!!" The user's father wrote to her saying how he saw her crying on her birthday, and he used a Biryani metaphor to explain why it some people were just not worth it. He wrote in the message, "Happy birthday, Manu beta. I saw you crying today morning and I want to say that stop crying over people who don't deserve you. You are 21 years old now and you should know your worth. People come people go and you can't change that. So know your worth and put yourself first." "Crying over biryani is more worth than crying over people," he concluded.
The father's adorable message was a hit with netizens. Twitter users applauded him for using Biryani to explain life's most simple, yet integral, philosophy. Some users also related to the part where he chided his daughter for her unhealthy diet, calling her a 'baby elephant' in his message. Take a look at the reactions:
