    When a new bride enters the house everyone is so happy. Especially when the first daughter in law comes home everyone will be waiting anxiously for her arrival.

    On the marriage day itself the new bride is brought home after the marriage is over. When she enters the house she is asked to keep the right leg first then enter the home. The family members are so happy to receive the bride and the whole house is decorated in some houses. First the bride is asked to light the diya in front of God and everyone gives the newly wed Palum, pazhamum. Olden days since it was a joint family the new bride had to adjust herself with everyone. In some houses the mother in law will give the responsbility of taking care of the house to the eldest daughter in law and so much expectations are there from everyone in the house.

    Now a days many people before marriage only buy a house for their son separately so that they can lead their life peacefully and still keep in touch with their parents. Every parent want their daughter in law to make the house a home where lot of love and affection is there and everyone is happy.

    There are many houses where daughter in law is treated like a daughter and so there is always love between them.

    I still remember the day when I entered my husband's house as a bride. At that time my husband was not so well off and since being the second eldest had many responsbiliites and he had a small house only. But though the house was small everyone's heart was big and my sisters in law had arranged the house nicely in whatever space was there. When I entered the house after all the religious rites my husband told me that if you win the heart of his elder brother then it is like winning everyone's heart.

    I could win the love and affection of everyone in the house and till today I am enjoying my post of sister in law.

    That's so nice of you, Viji to pen down yet another wonderful memory!
    Moments like this stay in our heart and mind forever like it happened yesterday. To be affectionate and win over others in your DH's family is no mean feat!

    Hi viji aunty!

    Nice to read about your position in the family and that you still maintain it.
    I too was always in the good books of my MIL and FIL and now continue to be loved by my SILs. Since I am the choti bahu, my views will always be questioned by my Co-sis (elder bahu). But I am very happy to mention that from the time I got married my MIL and FIL stayed with me only. I do not know if you remember that my user name Soldier is dedicated to my FIL only. How I wished he lived for many more years.

    Dear Mallika

    Good to know that you have also won the heart of everyone in your in law's house and your parents in law are staying with yu only from the time you got married. You are a lovable person so they must be also enjoying staying with you. I know that your fil gave you the name Soldier.

    love
    viji
