I keep reading everywhere that why there are all the instructions and protocol for the children,and DIls why not any one for elders , parents and inlaws, so i thought why not? lets have one which will appeal to them, and as it is giving advice, comes so easily to us Indians.....ask anyone whenever a match is lost..everybody must be telling you how the strategy of the captain was wrong, and how the batsman didnt cut the ball, and how the fielder lost the easy to play the game sitting in your drawing room:), its like discussing realistic movies and poverty in India over Champagne and caviar:), so here are the guidelines for parents and elders, take it at your own peril, the product is not guaranteed:)

You are born in this world to take care of your children only, so do it well, dont have any other thing in your mind or life.

A child is an individual by birth , so respect them ..even at the cost of your self respect:)( you shouldnt have any.

Before telling is a bad word..asking your children to do anything, tell them all the reasons and logic, but of course dont expect them to justify their actions.

Give them all the freedom...This is a free world and you may be sued for slavery, But of course if they do anything wrong..its your responsibility and duty to take care of that.

If they want to take all the decisions of their life without your consent..let them take...they are right , its their life, and dont ever say that...hamaare time me aisa hota tha..times have changed , but remember only for them, not for you--if you ever express a desire tobecome modern...are you out of your mind?

They have every right to compare you with their friend's parents who...pamper their children silly, give lot of money and freedom, but you have no right to compare them with other children...u r spoiling their personality by continuous comparison.

Dont ever expect anything from them..obedience or anything else......U havent done anything special..all parents do that for their children,They have already given you a being your children.

If you are extra caring and are suffocating them, stifling their life, but if you dont, then you are dont care.

You may suppress all your dreams for their future, but they cant kill a single desire for you, as it will be ruining their life for nothing.

and all this for the sake of being called a parent..the word means a person totally selfless and devoted to children.

List is endless..will keep adding:)

Now for the inlaws.....

Please be there when we need you, rest of the time live as if you dont exist.

I want every right in your home as a grihalakshmi.but I will remain my parent's daughter .


I will do as i want, I cant consider your opinion or consider your liking or disliking.

Respect my choices and lifestyle ( yours look after yourself)

Whenever i feel like doing something , i will do for you, and feel grateful to me forever.

I wouldnt like to change name, my lifestyle or my choices..why cant you ALL make yourselves compatible to me...thats if you love me or want me ( i dont want anybody)

I want you to love me more than your daughters even, but you can never be like my parents accept it for your benefit only.

If i earn, it is for me and my family ( and family is always her parents and siblings)( it was this way in my times, cant say if the equations have changed today).

If i am ever rude to you, think about what you have done to bring it upon yourself i am never rude to my parents,or otherwise, so it must be your fault somewhere.

In my life inlaws have all the duties and rights belong to my parents,understand it, so you will not feel any anguish later on. ( oh come parents have brought me up with so much of hard work and all that, and boys upbringing....... hardly involves any work or money.), so chill.

Society may be patriarchial but we will work as a matriarchial one.

Learn the meaning of adjustment well, because now that is your life going to be.

Boys , beware or be happy that the days are not far when girls will bring a baraat and take you to their homes:)

All the above material is fictitious and any resemblance to anyone's life is coincidental only, the writer doesnt take responsibility for that:), read it at your own risk:)
