Mother in law, as described by our popular media can invoke images of a stern, always manipulating, mean and cruel old lady. Many Indian movies and daily soaps have portrayed mother in law as the biggest villain of a daughter in law’s life.
It was mother-in-law day recently and we decided to change the script. We asked mothers to share their positive stories about their relationship with their MILs. What we got is so many positive comments and pictures. This proves that as long as there is respect and space, MIL and DIL relationship can be a beautiful bond between two women.
Many of the moms shared what they have learnt from their mother in law. From cooking delicious food, running the homes efficiently to be the woman of the house and giving unconditional love to the family.
