A daughter in law is often treated like an unpaid maid, even among educated people. Does it need the Supreme Court of India to force mindset change?
In May 2016, the Supreme Court of India commented on this social problem while upholding the sentence of a man convicted of serious domestic abuse, leading to the suicide of his wife. Read the full story here.
Quoting from the news: “A daughter-in-law is to be treated as a member of the family with warmth and affection and not as a stranger with respectable and ignoble indifference. She should not be treated as a house maid. No impression should be given that she can be thrown out of her matrimonial home at any time,” a bench of Justices KS Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra said.
Reading the news,
The highest court of India had to guide millions of Indians on the way to behave with their daughter in law. Do we need to tell people, is it not obvious?
As obvious as the values we received in our moral science class?
Or as obvious as the lessons a girl is bestowed with when she is about to marry?
Sadly, the reported facts of India tell a different story, and hence the aforementioned statement from the court. If read by the intended audience it would deter them from treating their daughters-in-law badly, hopefully!

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then.
