An elderly Indian couple has filed a lawsuit against their son and daughter-in-law, and they mean business.
According to NPR, the couple is asking that their son and his wife either create a grandchild within a year or pay them 50 million rupees (R 10 975 749,75).
Sanjeev Ranjan Prasad, a 61-year-old retired government officer, said it was an emotional and delicate topic for him and his wife, Sadhana Prasad, and that they could no longer wait.
It has been six years ago since his son, a pilot got married.
Prasad, pleaded his case with the media and added that he spent 3.5 million rupees (R 769 974,94) for his son’s pilot training in the United States.
“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,”
“The main issue is that at this age we need a grandchild, but these people (my son and daughter-in-law) have an attitude that they don’t think about us,”
“We got him married in the hope we would have the pleasure of becoming grandparents. It has been six years since their marriage,”
“It feels as if despite having everything we have nothing,” Prasad said.
