Uttarakhand, 12th May 2022: A peculiar case has come to light in Uttarakhand where a couple has lodged a complaint against their son and daughter-in-law demanding them to give a grandchild or else pay an amount of Rs 5 crore as compensation for.
The parents claimed that they spent all their money on providing for their son’s studies in the United States. They say that they had to take a load in order to build their house. All this left them financially unstable.
As a result, they have now demanded a refund in the form of a grandchild or a penalty in the form of Rs 2.5 crore each from their son and daughter-in-law.
Advocate AK Srivastava, on behalf of the couple, insisted that the case portrays the truth of modern society. He said, “We invest in our children, make them capable of working in good firms. Children owe their parents basic financial care. The parents have demanded either a grandchild within a year or compensation of Rs 5 crores.”
Netizens from Twitter were left baffled upon hearing the demands from the parents.
One user wrote, “You weded them so that you can have a grandchild???? What???”
Another user tweeted, “Indian parents find soulmates for their children and want them to mate immediately and produce a male heir within nine months of wedding. That’s the sole purpose of their existence.”
People are wondering that how having a grandchild will solve the financial problems of the couple.
