Twitter is a platform where people often come to break news or have a fun conversation or troll entities. A case in point would be Twitterati trolling India and Afghanistan. But occasionally, Twitter does become a conversation starter just like for this Pakistani girl.
Pakistani girl on Twitter
A Pakistani girl made use of the platform to call out all men on their lack of planning in day-to-day lives. She must have felt exasperated at how the men around her reacted to planning. This is why she was pretty specific in calling these men out. She quoted men and the phrases they use such as ‘dekhtey hain‘ (we’ll see) and ‘kuch karte hain‘ (we’ll do something).
Why do men not make proper plans? Wtf is dekhte hain. Kuch karte hain??? Like every single MAN DOES THIS

Other girls also rallied behind her post confirming that the hypothesis could indeed be generalized. One said that her inference of the ‘dekhain ge‘ was their way of getting out of a situation.
It took me a whole year to finally understand that dekhain gay means “chal mera put chutti kar”

Pakistani men defend themselves
This is the fun part of Twitter when you call someone out on Twitter. The person being questioned also has the option to reply. Hence, you can expect what happened. Men decided to give this Pakistani girl what they thought was a proper response.
Throwing in words, one person said that the girl was confusing pragmatism with procrastination. He said that men do not flee from challenges. In fact, they use such statements only when they do not have full information yet they will take the case on. So this is their indicator that they are ready to test the waters.
Don't confuse pragmatism with procrastination. Men usually don't flee the challenge, they only say things like Dekhty hen, Kuch krty hen, when thy don't hav full information at hand but still r willing to take on the task by testing the waters.
Failure is an effect not cause.

Another man accepted this allegation though. He, in fact, shared that a screenshot of a conversation with a friend where he actually said ‘dekhte hain‘.

One other Pakistani man took the opportunity to jokingly call women out by saying that it is the women who need to stop annoying the man because these phrases mean that they have taken the matter under consideration.
Actually dkhtay hien means it is noted and is under deliberation, so no need to annoy him repeatedly, just wait, ghabrana nahi bs 😂😝

Two more interpretations come forward. One is that they need time before responding properly. And the other is that even the men don’t know what they will be doing.
