Why do people behave so badly after the death of the father in most families?A man who had lived all his life-saving money for his children would have managed to build an independent house in a slightly faraway suburb of the city and would have, 30 years from that time, been sitting on a property now worth a couple of crores. However, the fight for the property would immediately start between the brothers. Even if there is a will, the daughter(s) are denied their rightful share and the brothers even go to court.
The aforesaid similar and very familiar story is repeated with monotonous regularity in most of urban India. Cousins become enemies. There is no emotional bonding and only money becomes the common bone of contention.
One can always argue that this was the case even decades ago. Perhaps. But today, the nature of the conflict and the dimensions of the conflict even result in murders. What can be done to stop these conflicts in the first place?
