India had always been proud of it rich culture and family values. Recently, I read in the news about Oprah Winfrey's India visit and appreciation for the joint family system , as she said "What most impressed me here was the family tradition in the country and the fact that you take care of your parents, your grandparents" . But, I wonder if Oprah really knows its the parents of the husband alone I wonder why still in India , women have to leave her parents and have to live with and take care of her husband's parents only. Why not its the other way ? Though things have changed a bit, but still majority believe that once married, women must serve her inlaws only. To the astonishment, most married men believe the same. So, my question is " Is this kind of culture really good for women? Or is it being very mean to them ? " Please input your views to this discussion.
