My dad passed away 3 years ago without writing will about his home, which is built from his income. He always wanted to give it entirely to my elder brother. My parents raised me with love and affection during childhood. when I wanted to pursue MS in USA, my father who took an early retirement lay an option in front of a 20 yr gal that he has 5 laks to pay either for my higher education or for my marriage. and as expected I chose education over marriage and came to USA. I had my fair share of struggles as a single girl without any relatives or guidance in new country, survived and settled. but my dad also asked me to repay the money he gave for my education, which I did in less time as a dutiful daughter without questioning. I even financially supported entire wedding expense of mine and my brother's wedding as well. and gave another 12 laks for my father to use it for his future expenses. my brother and dad never got along well, since my brother was a kid. my father had lot of love for him but never showed it and rather only showed his strict side. while showering love on me since i was the little one at home. My brother was always jealous of me as I was praised since childhood for being smarter. and the day I got my US visa, he couldnt control his feelings and cried out of jealousness. and when I first got job while my brother was jobless for long, I used to support my family with monthly expenses. within a month of my wedding, my mom suddenly passed away leaving us all 3 in utter shock and despair. within few years of my brother's marriage, my dad gave away the retirement funds that i had given him without my consent so that my brother could buy an apartment. my brother was the one, who coerced my dad to not return my money and instead give it to him for which my dad obliged. my dad also sold his ancestoral property and gave away that money as well to my brother. even though my dad was getting rental income from his home while he was living with my brother. he used to ask me to send small amounts for monthly expenses saying how his son was not even giving him a single penny for medicine expenses etc. so I used to dutifully send it. my brother always felt that my dad was a burden on him and his family and caused lack of privacy. sometime ago my dad fought with me and verbally used very cursive and foul language words to extract my mom's jewellery and give it to his son. my mom always wanted to give it to me. this was all while i was 5 months pregnant. and neither of these men never cared to ask how i was doing ever. and in anger when I asked my dad, if ever he would give a share of his property, then he said he would rather give the money/property to an anaadh ashram than giving it to me. i was heart broken. cause I was always this obedient, smart loving daughter who took care of them financially a lot even before they ever asked for. and this is all he has got for me? i didnt speak to him for few months and after which i swallowed my ego and spoke to him again. he never regretted nor said anything about how he spoke. in 2017 my brother said it on my dad's face to leave his house for which my dad felt very bad and came back to his own home and started living alone. and exactly in an year (2018) my dad died of heart attack alone, without any medical help near by. my brother asked my neighbors to send my father's body in a van to the city where he was, to perform the last rights. everyone was cursing my brother for being so cold and irresponsible. and my brother fought with me that i was not sharing the last rights cost and how he had to spend 1.5laks on it. this is un heard of in indian hindu culture that daughter spends for dad's last rights. I did not spend on purpose since I wanted my brother to take responsibility at least once in his life towards parents. Now since there is no will, I am legally able to claim 50% of my dad's home. initially i never cared for this money/property. but my anger remained that first my dad has been really unfair to me throughout his whole life not wanting to spend a single penny either on my education, or marriage or assets. which usually all girls in indian culture get from mom's home. and secondly and most importantly that my brother in spite of kicking my dad out of his home now wants a free ride and loads of money all to himself. I dont want to give that free ride to my brother so easily, for making my dad suffer. but also some where in deep corner of my heart, I am lost and confused if what i am doing is right or wrong. since my dad never wanted me to inherit his asset.
