AN INDIAN couple are to take their son to court to demand that he and his wife produce either a grandchild within a year or pay them nearly 50 million rupees (about R10.5m). Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad say they exhausted their savings raising and educating their pilot son and paying for a lavish wedding. Now they want payback. “My son has been married for six years but they are still not planning a baby. At least if we have a grandchild to spend time with, our pain will become bearable,” the couple said in their petition filed with a court in Haridwar last week. The compensation they are demanding includes the cost of a wedding reception in a five-star hotel, a luxury car, and an overseas honeymoon, the Times of India reported.
