October 28th was Mother-in-Law’s day. I feel this is one of the most misunderstood relationships ever.
When I was married, Bollywood movies made me very, very anxious about my upcoming relationship with my in-laws. Thankfully, she didn’t live upto the movie standards. In fact, when I look back, I laugh at my naïveté and silliness in believing Bollywood.
Here is a poem I wrote for my second mom and titled it likewise.
We are not related,
except by law.
I know we are related,
by something bigger than this.
and in your way,
take care of me.
as I am,
with my limitations.
You gently guided me
and make me aware
of the likes
and dislikes of all.
You keep me protected
from the jealous eyes
and eager ears
I can clearly see
that you have gone through
and not forgotten your past
You remember your days
as a new bride
in this family.
I know it is yours now
it will be mine, someday too.
Let’s spread some positivity. Let’s banish the cliches. Please share your stories and poems about your mother-in-law.

Why is that our society defines a woman’s success by her marital status? Is it an achievement to get married or remain married? Is it anybody’s business? Are people’s lives so hollow that they need someone’s broken marriage to feel good about themselves?
A couple of months ago, I came across an article titled, “Shweta Tiwari married for the third time.” When I read through it, the article went on to clarify that the picture making news was one her one of her shows, in which she is all set to marry her co-star. She is not getting married in real life.
Fair enough. But why did the publication use such a clickbait title that was so misleading? I guess the thought of a woman marrying thrice made an exciting news for them and their potential readers who might click through.
