22 Feb 2010 – From a friend in Goa
Enjoy and have a modern week ahead 🙂
It is a myth that when a son gets married and a new daughter-in-law arrives in the family, everything changes.
Some daughters-in-law are well-trained and well mannered. They don’t come to change the family, they are here to…
The new wife (progressive Indian woman of today), was being welcomed at the husband’s home in a traditional manner. As expected she gave a speech;
‘My dear family, I thank you for welcoming me in my new home and family, firstly, my being here does not mean that I would want to change your way of life, your routine. ‘No,I will never do that, never in a million years.’
‘What do you mean my child?’ asked the father-in-law.
‘What I mean dad is (looking at her in-laws);
Those who used to wash the dishes must carry on washing them.
Those who used to do the laundry must carry on doing it.
Those who cooked should not stop at my account, AND
Those who used to clean should continue cleaning !!!
‘And what are you here for?’ enquired the mother-in-law.
‘As for me…
I’M HERE JUST TO ENTERTAIN YOUR SON….. ‘ 🙂 🙂 🙂
Marriages and relationships might work out better if that is the case… just a thought!
