Mother in laws and daughter in laws


I was driving to work last week and I was listening to BBC. The program was an interview with an Indian mother-in-law in India who is advocating for a law to protect Mother-in-laws. She said in her interview that while the whole world knows the plight of the daughter-in-laws among Indian women, nobody is giving a hoot to the mother-in-laws who are suffering under the evil hands of the bad daughter-in-laws.

The Chinese have a saying," The man has his reasons, the woman has her reasons". Everyone has his reasons, and another," A kitchen can't have two woman."

Before I started blogging, I was into writing. I wrote two fictitious short stories on young Indian women, Nadine, http://annkschin.blogspot.com/2008/11/nadine-chapter-one.html and
Shoba, conflict of cultures. Nadine was based on the life of a girl friend. Part of the story is true,

Recently, I befriended a young Indian woman. She met her husband through an internet bureau. Sadly she is a statistics of a typical abused young bride.
