India. They demand 615,000 euros from their son because he has no children yet

We don’t choose our family. Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad, an Indian couple, are suing their son, demanding that he and his wife give them a grandson within a year or risk paying them €615,000 in damages.

Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad say they used up their life savings to raise and educate their son, who is now a pilot, and give him a lavish wedding. They now want a grandchild or a return on their investment.

“My son has been married for six years but (his couple) are still not planning a baby. At least if we had a grandchild to spend time with, our pain would be bearable,” the couple said in their lawsuit, filed in a Haridwar court last week.

The 50 million rupees ($700,000) in compensation sought includes the cost of a wedding reception at a five-star hotel, a luxury car valued at €76,000 and payment for the couple’s honeymoon abroad, the daily reported on Thursday Indian times.

The parents added that they paid $62,000 for their son to receive pilot training in the United States before returning to India unemployed, the newspaper said. “We also had to take out a loan to build our house and are now in great financial difficulty,” the couple said in their complaint, “we are also mentally ill because we live alone.”

The lawsuit will be heard in a court in northern India on May 17, according to the couple’s lawyer, Arvind Kumar. In India, several generations, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces, often live under one roof.

In recent years, however, the trend has changed, young couples prefer to be away from their families, while many women, like the daughter-in-law in this case, prefer to emancipate themselves and pursue a professional career than become a mother in the foyer .
