Daughters and daughters-in-law are two essential pillars of Nepali families. While daughters are cherished for their sweetness and kindness, daughters-in-law are appreciated for their culinary skills and ability to bear children. But let’s be honest, the relationship between a mother and daughter-in-law can be pretty amusing!
Mother is a gift from God. No matter how your life changes, your mother is the only one who will love you unconditionally. Your mother happily sacrificed her comforts so that she could see you smile. Her love for her children is the most beautiful thing in this world. No one on this earth will love, care, and pamper the way she does. However, your mother can become a complete person while dealing with someone else.
If you’ve ever been to a Nepali household, you might have witnessed the daily drama between a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law. The mother-in-law always worries about her son’s happiness and well-being, while the daughter-in-law tries to impress her new family. And in the middle of all this chaos, some hilarious moments make us all laugh.
For instance, when a daughter-in-law cooks for the family, the mother-in-law is always there to supervise. “Add a little more salt,” she says, “or else it won’t taste good.” And when the daughter-in-law adds too much salt, the mother-in-law complains, “You’re going to kill us with all this salt!” It’s a lose-lose situation for the poor daughter-in-law.
But despite all the differences, there are some things that both daughters and daughters-in-law have in common. They both love to gossip and share their secrets. They both have a special place in their hearts for their families and will do anything to make them happy. And most importantly, they both can bring everyone a smile.
Prekshya Gurung tells the differences a daughter and a daughter-in-law can feel in the same house and by the same group of people. Nevertheless, not every person is the same, and not all of them would discriminate between daughters and daughters-in-law.
Ultimately, it’s all about finding humor in our everyday lives. Whether a daughter or a daughter-in-law, we all have quirks and flaws. But at the end of the day, we’re all family, and that’s what matters the most. So let’s embrace our differences, laugh at our silly moments, and cherish the relationships that make life worth living.
