Have you seen grown-up adults leaving their old-aged parents behind and pursuing their life? In one such case, a couple from Haridwar moved the court against their son demanding either a grandchild or Rs 5 crore compensation.
The parents claimed that they supported their son’s education in the United States with their lives worth saving. And had to take out a loan to construct their home which left them financially broke. As a result, they have demanded a pay-up in the form of either a grandchild or a fine of Rs 2.5 crore each from their son and daughter-in-law.
“I offered my son all my money, got him qualified in America. I don’t have any money now. We have taken a loan from bank to construct our home. We’re troubled financially and personally. We have demanded Rs 2.5 crore each from both my son and daughter-in-law in our petition,” the father, SR Prasad said.
The couple’s advocate AK Srivastava urged that the case shows the reality of modern culture.
“We invest in our children, make them capable of working in good firms. Children owe their parents basic financial care. The parents have demanded either a grandchild within a year or settlement of Rs 5 crores,”
