Meddlesome She was!
 
I was very tiresome after searching for a job the whole day in the city.That too travelling by bus was very hectic.I was damn tired and very thirsty too.
 
When I reached home, I called my wife to fetch me a glass of water.
 
When she went inside the home,I could hear a conversation between her and her mom.
 
"Is he a lord?Can't he come inside the home to have a tumbler of drinking water?Who is he to order you to fetch a glass of water?That too he is a total waste not able to earn a single pie.You should avoid acting as a servant to him.You got it?"
 
When I heard the conversation I was furious.I didn't want to leave it just like that.
 
"Hello mam,who are you to meddle with between us ? I am asking my wife to fetch me a glass of water.Have you got anything to do with it?"
 
Though my wife fetched a glass of water,she didn't like my counter attack.She frowned at me." How can you speak ill of my mom?Is she not your mother-in-law?Did she speak anything with you? She spoke to me only."
 
"Ever since she came here she has always been troublesome and quite often meddlesome.In fact she is always trying to create a rift between us by frequently ill advising you.Better ask her mind her own business.You got it?"
 
"Oh my goodness, am I creating a rift between you?I will not be here anymore even for a single day.Swapna,I am leaving for my home.Do you think I am here just because I don't have any thing to eat at my home?It's a great insult.I am leaving."
 
However my mother-in-law was not serious in quitting my home since she was very fond of her daughter and she too looked after her very nicely.Infact,she enjoyed the most favoured person's status at my home.
 
After having my dinner,I was watching TV in the hall.My wife was discussing something very seriously with her mom.
 
"Swapna,his attitude is not right that too when he is jobless.Be careful with him.Don't allow him to have too much liberty.Always keep an eye on him and see that he is always dancing to your tunes.OK?"
 
When I heard the conversation I was mentally disturbed.
 
I could not keep mum when my mother in law chose to illadvise my wife time and again.
 
"Mam, though I am jobless,are we not getting income from our lands in the form of rice and vegetables?This house was purchased from the income we derived from our sugarcane crops.In fact my father and myself are actively engaged in agriculture and it's a hon'ble profession too.But you are time and again ill advising my wife as if I am a worthless fellow and you are clearly creating a rift between us.You better quit this home at the earliest. OK?"
 
The next day early morning, perhaps offended at my counter attack, my wife and her mom engaged an autorickshaw and left my home hurriedly without informing me.
 
My wife didn't return to my home even after a week.Hence I went to my in laws house and invited her to come back to my home.
 
But she didn't reply.But my mother in law chose to inform me that her daughter was not willing then to come with me.
 
Six months elapsed.My wife didn't turn up to my home.
 
Just because of the meddlesome attitude of my mother in law,my marital life had been needlessly ruined.
 
Hence I issued a legal notice to my wife seeking the restitution of conjugal rights and to resume cohabitation with me.
 
Having received the legal notice sent by me,my wife didn't reply nor returned to my home.
 
Therefore I had no other go but to approach the court of law seeking the restitution of conjugal rights from my wife.
 
I had filed the case three years ago and it was still pending in a Court of Law.
