Many generations — including grandparents, nephews, aunts, and uncles – commonly live in the same house in India.
However, in recent years, the tendency has shifted, with young couples wanting to live away from their parents or siblings, and ladies preferring to work rather than focus on having children and staying at home, as in the case of the Indian couple who are mentally disturbed because they are lonely
The parents, Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad sued their son for retaliation after spending all of their savings ensuring he received an education and paying for a lavish wedding.
According to AFP, the couple wrote a plea filed with a court in Hardiwar. They wrote, “My son has been married for six years, but they have yet to have a child.” “At least having a grandchild to spend time with will make our pain bearable”.
As Times of India report has said, the compensation they are seeking – 50 million rupees which includes the expense of a five-star wedding event, a $80,000 luxury car, and paying for the couple’s honeymoon abroad.

The paper said, the parents also forked out $65,000 to get their son trained as a pilot in the United States only for him to return to India unemployed.
It was gathered that Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad are said to be going through a difficult time and want to be reimbursed for the money spent on their son’s honeymoon abroad as well as the cost of a five-star hotel wedding reception.
“We also had to take a loan to build our house and now we are going through a lot of financial hardships. Mentally too we are quite disturbed because we are living alone,” the couple said in their petition.
The couple’s lawyer, Arvind Kumar, said the case will be heard by a court in northern India on May 17.
