Indian couple want a grandchild – level 3

23-05-2022 07:00

A retired Indian couple are suing their son and daughter-in-law, and they are demanding a grandchild.

According to the couple’s lawyer, they demand either a grandson or granddaughter within one year or 50 million Indian rupees ($ 675,000). The couple claim that they’ve looked after their son, and they spent all their life’s savings on his education. Their son became a pilot, and pilot training in the US costs 3.5 million Indian rupees.

The grandfather said that, at his age, he needed a grandchild; however, his son’s attitude showed he didn’t think of his parents’ situation.

Despite being married for six years, the man pursued his career as a pilot, and he didn’t start a family of his own. The older couple believe that they didn’t get the love and affection that they deserved.

Difficult words: attitude (thoughts or feelings about something), pursue (to follow or continue with an action, plan, and so on), affection (feelings of care for someone or something).
