The Mother in Law

In this witty acute and often painfully funny book Veena Venugopal follows eleven women through their marriages and explores why the mother in law is the dreaded figure she isMeet Deepa whose bikini wearing mother in law wont let her even wear jeans Carla whose mother in law i. Phew I will admit that I am thoroughly depressed after reading this Having grown up primarily in the south to mostly educated liberal parents I had assumed that the evil mother in law trope was restricted to bad mega serials poor education and small townsI know very little about villages to assume anything But man was I wrong Some truly horrific stories about cruelty from the mother in law and on occasion everyone from the man s family ranging from instances of petty verbal taunts physical violenceemotional blackmail threats narrow mindedness western clothes are a big no no a working girl is an even bigger no no one mom in law actually calls them prostitutes and even rape from the husband to the mother in law who trains all grandchildren to treat her as their mother and treats the daughter in laws as maids Phew Real life seems infinitely weirder and crueler The men rarely come out smelling of roses A few of them are openly supportive a few are supportive without knowing how to take on their mothers and in a few sad cases a few brain washed ones actually turn against the wife I guess the only thing to be moderately happy about is that the two south Indian mom in laws are comparatively mild and spectacularly progressive when compared to their North Indian counterparts If I have a grouse with the book it s that perhaps most of the people mentioned here seem to be from a middle class to super rich economic background It might have been interesting to see if small town marriages are similarly depressing or if there are surprises there To conclude all the girls who I know are in happy marriages you have no idea how lucky you are And the unmarried ones you might want to read this
