Fruit Custard Recipe is a delicious and easy to make dessert recipe. Fruit custard is a combination of custard powder and mixed fruits.
Our relations are often defined by the names that we give them and every name comes with some guidelines, restrictions, expectations, and limitations.
Relations often stay within these defined boundaries and when any of these relations try to cross them, there is discomfort all around.
Why do we really have these boundaries?
I often look at my little daughter and the way she is pampered at home. She is the daughter of the house and we are her parents. We are an integral part of her life and all of her decisions.
In a few years from now, she will get married and move into a completely unknown family (at least until then). And then she gets a suffix to her name, in-law. And the transition from a daughter to a daughter-in-law often brings with it completely different expectations, guidelines and restrictions.
At this point, I ask myself a question.
How does the role of this daughter change in this process?
If you look at it logically, nothing really changes in terms of her roles. She is still a daughter and she still takes care of her parents, albeit this time it’s a new set of parents with a new suffic, in-law added to their names.
But just that addition of a suffix, changes a lot of things for the girl. After all this new name comes with restrictions and limitations just as in all the other relations.
The parents who the girl lived with for more than 20 years, suddenly becomes an alien entity and restrictions apply on how, when and why to meet them.
Similar is the case with all her other relations as well.
All of this is a common story with pretty much every girl unless she gets married into a family which understands these relations better and who for once, decides on shoving these restrictions and limitations away and decides on treating her just like a daughter.
But how many such cases do we see.
It’s a common story and we keep reading about it pretty much everyday. And whenever I read them, I look at my daughter and wish that she gets a family that understands her and accepts her as a daughter and not a daughter-in-law.
How will we be able to change this?
For this to change, there is a complete change in mindset required. A change in mindset of the son and his parents
When we start to see our daughter-in-laws like our daughters and consider marriages as a union of two families to become a larger family, we will treat everybody in that family just like how we want to be treated.
And when that mindset changes, we will see that relationships will be less demanding, more understanding and caring and a lot more harmonious.
And this change will have to being with the sons of the house.
On the expectation that this rambling of mine will change the mindset of at least one son, let us get onto this week’s recipe.
