    :lol:

    The milder way of saying that is "there are times you will love your child, but find it very difficult to like him/her."

    Children's interactions with parents seem to be like garnering some good behavior credits (like frequent flyer miles, or Amazon shopping discount points) and then spending more than they have and going into overdraft status.

    How to train one another into being a helpmeet, and a supporter at all costs <== should have been the goal of any BOOK on the matter of "how to live together and make babies to raise to launch into the world" book.

    In my book, all books have to deal with birth-control during the training period. If the twosome cannot train the partner into becoming a supporter of how to deal with the spawn/s, then it is best to call off the Joint Venture, and start from scratch.

    You are in a bad marriage.
    Your spouse is annoying, a control freak.
    You are subject to mental abuse.
    You go to ER because of physical abuse.
    You try to read BOOKs to reformat your behaviors.
    You think there has to be a distant solution for a happy ending to all that.

    However....

    Stunningly beautiful lady, a fan of George Bernard Shaw: Mr. Shaw, marry me, and we shall have children with your brains and my beauty.
    G.B. Shaw: What if our children have my beauty, and your brains ?

    Jupiter... Let's say two lady patients walk into Jupiter Hospital. One always lived in India (Bharati), the other (Rewa) Indian born, still takes autorickshaws when in India, wears thin Kolhapuri chappals, USC with OCI, wears clothes that are at least 15 years outdated. Hard to tell them apart.

    1. So, Jupiter can charge them different rates for similar medical treatment? And, if they figure out that hey Rewa can pay more ... they could charge her more?

    2. Does Rewa have any recourse? Like the price match guarantee of American stores? Can she show them Bharati's medical quotes and ask for similar charges?

    : ) FFTI ... Just mildly curious... This must mean that the gora "medical tourists" pay more than locals.

    Yes; Gora patients, not necessarily/only "tourists", but also people who live there on long term business visas, pay a bit extra. Those who pay also get faster treatment, and somehow made to feel special. I had accompanied a couple of such people to their treatment (just to give them my better ear for local speech). I think there is a special dispensation for the looks. Someone who "looks" and behaves different, gets treated different. Gora come wearing their skin, and that gets them a special treatment. Same thing can happen to NRI, who behaves different, and volunteers the NRI information. For medical billing -- it does save money to be Romans in Rome. In Bharathi vs Rewa, if the latter behaves exactly the same as the former, there'd be no difference in billing; but if the latter asks for it, she'd get it.

    Another big asian medical tourism country, Thailand, is supposed to charge more for middle eastern gentlemen/ladies than they do for goras. Makes sense, doesn't it ? Some socialist fellow (Trotsky? Marx?) was supposed to have suggested "from each according to their means...." or some such thing.

    Watch 7 seconds from 2:48 -2:55. : ) I had a something-silk saree with that exact same print and color combo. It was crepe-silk I think.

    Hahaha.... it looks like that mother got close to home for you.... in that crepe-silk color/print combo as well.
    I so loved the manner in which she tossed the word "dump" for all its various usages. "You make two, and work hard" <== Good mother (you included)!!
    Best wishes for a long, happy life.
