There’s a famous saying that goes something like this: God could not be everywhere so he created mothers.
But then, Devil didn’t want to be left behind, so he created a mother-in-law.
The relationship between a mother and daughter is the most beautiful one. But the minute a suffix “in-law” is added to any of the two, the entire dimension changes! And we don’t have to look far for such a “beautiful” relationship that takes ages to mature and blossom (pun intended). Every Indian, read North Indian, home is replete with such examples.
By its own experience, Khurki has collected some gems from the mother-daughter relationship and when they are daggers drawn in the in-law relationship…
1. Birthday Time
Mother-in-law -> Happy birthday!
(Mind it only wishes are with you)
Mother -> Happy birthday sweetheart!
2. When you are out somewhere…
Mother-in-law -> Grrr….she never calls me
Mother -> Lemme just call her
3. Dinner time…
Mother-in-law -> What is for dinner tonight?
Mother -> What do you want to eat?
4. When your baby girl is crying…
Mother-in-law -> Your daughter is crying, please take care of her.
Mother -> What happened to my baby?
(Cares like a mom)
5. Household work…
Mother-in-law -> How much time you will take to finish your work?
Mother -> You come and sit. Let me do it for you…
6. Morning Time…
Mother-in-law -> Is she sleeping till now??
Mother -> Let her sleep for some more time
A request to all the daughters and mothers who are in-laws too to leave the in-laws out of their relationship and concentrate on being daughters and mothers.
