The topic is such that even if you won’t have time to click and read my blog, you would be still tempted to give it a cursory glance. I may be wrong as well!! So this is the dreaded species of Indian Bollywood.She is known to exhibit no sense of mercy when she opens her mouth to target her most beloved daughter-in-law. On a lighter note have listed down few things which you should never say in front of your mother-in-law.
- Can I please wear my jeans: This is from my personal experience. That expression when you ask if you can wear jeans. She will act as if you have asked her to wear a mini skirt. Howsoever decent jeans may be, covering your entire body but you know “bahu to saree main hi Sundar lagti hai”
- Can I go to my mayka: Well, the day you got married to her son, you agreed to not go to your mayka. So you see never ask for her permission, because if you do she will come up with 100 reasons to make you stay. It sounds weird but in most cases its true.
- Can I go out for a dinner with my husband: You can’t forget that you are asking her to go out with her beloved son. Try and avoid claiming her son. You may have married him but your mother in law is the supposed to be the queen of his heart.
- Can I go for shopping: Now you have pressed her painful nerve. Kyunki saas bi kabhi bahu thi. And this bahu (today’s sass) was so economical and managed the house so well. So you see the moment you mention shopping to her, be ready for a long lecture on how you should save money and value each penny.So better do the shopping quickly and secretly if your mother-in-law is one of the economical bahu’s of yesteryears
- I miss my family: I want to go home, I miss my family. Have you said this to her lately? Be careful.
- I don’t intend to plan my family for next 5 years: Well, have you heard about interests is better than principle? So your mother in law is interested in that interests (grandchild). If you tell this to her she would react as if you can’t ever deliver a child.
- I can handle my baby myself: Who say’s you can’t handle your baby. Definitely, you can manage your baby. But don’t forget you can’t take away her right of taking care of her grandchild.
- I know what my husband likes and I can manage him: Perhaps you know your husband very well and can manage him in the best possible way. But, do give your mother-in-law benefit of a doubt, after all, she has given birth to your husband and she also knows him quite well.
- Don’t budge the monthly budget: She might be poor with maths but she is very good at managing house budgets and is the queen of figures.
This post is intended to be a light read. However, jokes apart today’s Indian mother in law are to be saluted. They are not just taking care of their daughter-in-laws like a daughter but also standing behind them strong in helping build their career and managing their kids.
