So me and my friends (4) were discussing how we call our relatives in our families. In my family all Chachu's plus their wives are called "uncle & aunty". The same goes for the wives of Mamus. The only relatives who are called by their "relation" (if we can say so) is our Mamu's and Phupho. We even call my bhabhi for "Baji" instead of Bhabhi. One of my friends found that very weird. In her family they call all relatives by their "relation".. like for instead Chachu is called Chachu and his wife Chachi, Mamu's wife is Mami/mumani and so on.
Another issue was that another friends cousins call their mother for "baji", now I found tht very strange. :s And the 3rd one felt that it was not right to call elder siblings as "bhai" or "baji", they should be called by their names according to her.
So I was wondering what u guys think abt it & how do you people call ur relatives and perhaps siblings?

Oh boy, it's kind of confusing on my side.
All chachas are call chachas and all mamoos are called mamoos. Now the interesting part. By the way, we call their wives as such per their wish.
Oldest chachi (in relation) = Khaala (because she didn't have a sister and was "sister" with mom)
Younger chachi = Aunty
Youngest chachi = Chachi
For mamoos' wives.
Oldest mumaani = Baji (she's only a few years older than me)
Younger mumani = Baji (she's younger than me)
Youngest mamoo is only 3 years older than me, so his wife will def. be younger than me and most likely will call her baji too.

Well, I WOULD call them by their relation, if I ever even spoke to them or met them And I have disowned my dads sisters anyway so no "phupo" in my dictionary OK, I'm done.

I think the mumaanis of yours are a bit sweet. We have a similiar situation. My older brother is only a few yrs younger than my mumanis however in our family we still call them aunties. The youngest of them did mention once that she felt it was a bit weird in the beginning, but now she is used hehe
