    Just read a very interesting news item. Reproducing just to share:


    JODHPUR: The high court, while disposing of a petition on Friday, ordered a woman to give half of her salary to her former mother-in-law. The court has also ordered her to pay a consolidated sum of Rs 50,000 as immediate relief to her mother-in-law.

    Petitioner Bhanwar Kanwar had filed a petition in the court that her son, who was employed with the CRPF, had died in October 1995. His wife Tej Kanwar got her husband's job after his death on compassionate grounds. But later on Tej remarried.

    In her petition, Bhanwar pleaded that since she has no source of income and her daughter-in-law had left her, half of her salary should be given to her for the rest of her life.

    Hearing the arguments, Justice Govind Mathur ordered Tej Kanwar to pay half of her salary to Bhanwar Kanwar on the 10th of every month and also ordered to pay a consolidated sum of Rs 50,000 to Bhnawar Kanwar as immediate relief.

    Interesting indeed. Since she got the her husband's job, she is liable to her MIL who was a dependent. The dil might have the choice of quitting the job and she wouldn't be liable but still having enjoyed gaining the experience from the job. What is her liability towards her ex-MIL? very hard to calculate. I think we need a better system to take care of our elderly.

    I wonder how many men are spending half of their salary on their parents.

    On humanity ground I feel nothing wrong in that and the MIL has taken a step thats worth of appreciation. She is an elderly person and needs care may be she wont have anybody else to take care. The DIL is now remarried and she is having a job also nothing wrong in that. We cannot be so selfish too. I appreciate the judgement in this case. when good things happen we should appreciate it because this is going to teach a lesson to our society.

    This is a very touchy topic indeed. In case a man dies his wife and kids inherit all his worldly goods but what happens to his aged parents? Who looks after them?
    In the quoted case the woman got the job not on her merit but because she is the widow of the guy, she does owe some care and consideration to the aged parents though she remarried.
    Maybe this will be challenged in higher courts as probably no DIL would like to give money to her MIL whether DH is dead or alive!
