This story is about that proverbial tussle between saas and bahu. Bahu rules the kitchen and makes the food-generating place out of bounds to the saas.
The dispute becomes so heady that the saas is forced to pray her case in front of Judge Girish Gupta of the city High Court. Fortunately for Amita Mukherjee, the saas, her son Abhijit takes her side.
It’s a bizarre yet familiar incident of tussle for domain between Aditi Mukherjee, the bahu, and her mother-in-law. In this case the dispute resulted in Aditi locking the kitchen door after she has prepared food for herself and her 6-year old daughter. Abhijit and Amita would then have to eat their food in roadside restaurants.
After hearing all of them separately the judge preferred taking a middle path. He ordered the 2 women to stay together and cook their food in the same kitchen for 2 weeks. After that they will reappear in the court to narrate their stories to the judge.
It will only be then that the judge will deliver his verdict. [..more]
Will the arrangement work out? While the future will unveil that, I always believe that if there is lack of trust between 2 persons, who are as close as partners in life, no solution comes handy.
The role of tolerance and affection that Abhijit and Aditi play with respect to one another is therefore important above everything else.
