A retired couple in India is suing their son and daughter-in-law, asking them to produce a grandchild within a year or they will be required to pay 50 million rupees or almost $650,000.
The 61 years-old Sanjeev Ranjan Prasad said in an interview that he and his wife are longing to have a grandchild and they have exhausted all of their savings in making sure that their son gets decent education. The son ended-up becoming a pilot and the parents even claimed that they paid for his wedding.
"We want a grandson or a granddaughter within a year or compensation because I have spent my life's earnings on my son's education," Prasad said in their petition filed with a court in Haridwar last week.
"My son has been married for six years but they are still not planning a baby. At least if we have a grandchild to spend time with, our pain will become bearable," Prasad added. "We also had to take a loan to build our house and now we are going through a lot of financial hardships. Mentally too we are quite disturbed because we are living alone," the couple said in their petition. "It feels as if despite having everything we have nothing," the parents added.
The court accepted the plea and a hearing is already set according to local reports. Meanwhile, the son and his wife remains mum on the issue as of this writing. (KBAPI)
