Negative images of Indian daughter in law? (Pardon for sheer exaggeration), which I do not agree at all
Most of the inlaws of a girl think all their problems including their sickness, dementia or being put in an old age home is squarely due to the daughter in law . I always thought that it was an old women’s tale and such things have disappeared and I happened to read an article by scholarly face book friend Jabalimuni Putrevu based on the writing of one Dr.Hemant Mittal (social influencer and Motivational writer) .Do such circumstances hinted below exist for modern daughter in laws ? Though I have listed a few based i on the above article , I some how feel it does not exist nowadays . Exagerration no doubt , I am sure it would shake the erring in laws (micro percentage)
1,Daughter in laws are outsiders,
So discuss nothing in front of them,
Daughter in laws are thieves ,
Who have stolen our son.
2.Daughter in law does not know ,
About the needs of our home ,
And she needs to get adjusted to ,
Our home,. Its people and their needs.
3. Our son might have been a useless drunkard,
Who specialises in loving one lady after another,
But we have brought a daughter in law to correct him,
And if he is not able to do that , it is her fault not our sons.
4.Daughter in laws are our slaves,
Who should cater to our monetary needs,
Both by doing all our jobs as also ,
By handing over to us all that she earns
5.Daughter in law can and should cook in our house ,
But the recipes she uses should not be that of her home,
But that of our home , taught to her in a shoddy way,
And if it is not Okay , we can and will shout against her.
6.Daughter in laws parents are outsiders,
They can visit us but with ample presents,
But after wedding it is not the responsibility,
Of Daughter in law to help them or spend for them.
7.However efficient and gracious she is,
And even if daughter in law serves us well,
She can never become our daughter,
Who is an angel who has all rights in our home.
8.If Daughter in law does not present us ,
With a baby within one or two years after marriage ,
It is entirely her fault and never can be fault of our son,
And we have the right to talk about it behind her as well as in her front,
