Parents sue son and daughter-in-law for not giving them a grandchild
The Hairdwar married couple, aged 61 and 57, are demanding their pilot son and daughter-in-law produce a grandchild within a year or pay them the equivalent of almost $950,000.
The figure has been calculated based on what they claim they have spent on their son’s upbringing and education, including his pilot training, as well as the couple’s wedding and honeymoon.
“We made him a pilot with great enthusiasm and happiness and spent our life’s savings on him, thinking he’ll give us the happiness of being grandparents someday.”
“It’s been six years and it feels like we have nothing left in our lives.”
The emotional father said it was difficult for he and his wife to even see children because of their pain of wanting grandchildren.
“When kids are playing and walk past our house, it breaks our heart,” he said.
“My wife also loves kids a lot. But it is like they say, we are not getting the things we love the most.”
The case has been approved by a local Haridwar court and is listed to be heard next week.
