Acronym as per Oxford Dictionary means - a word formed from the first letters of other words. That would mean Daughter in law would be Dil. DIL is Hindi word for heart. So how come more often than not a daughter in law is not treated as DIL of a family? My thinking is that as we take care of our HEART to keep our body healthy, why should we not take care of DIL too to have a healthy peaceful family? Of course, she too should not function erratically.

hmmm...very thought provoking....

I wish we all think like you...

That's extremely well thought and put uncle.. so true..;) its true.. she deserves to be treated better like heart..

Komal Ali said...

What a beautiful though, uncle Jack. :-)

I hope you're doing great.

Gayu said...

Wow!!!!!! What a thought....if only all the families would think like you...there would be so much peace and love around.

Both MIL and DIL should understand that there are going to be times when their thoughts won't match, there will be small trifts...but they should adopt an attitude of "Raat gayi Baat gayi".

They should leave the grudges and look beyond the imperfections.

I loved this thought!!!!

CHOR CHOR. Stealing my thoughts? But I appreciate your spreading on wider net. Take care


Very right. It take two to tango. Efforts have to be from both sides for making family happy and peaceful. Have you read my post in 3 parts about Happy Married Life written in Oct - Nov 2009?
Take care

Great thoughts here. I am getting married next month and am proud to say that my in-laws give me all the love and pampering they give to their own daughter. In fact even she treats me with so much love and care :)

Jack said...


Congratulations. What date is it? Will I be lucky to be there for this? We complete 40 years next month. You are lucky to have such family.

Take care

Sonshu said...

Hahaha, once again a brilliant thought.

How the DILs wish that they were the DIL.

But maybe there is hope for change in scenario.

Jack said...


I too hope and pray for change in scenario. And it has to be two way traffic. Take care

So true.
I've always wondered why they MIL and DIL don't get along.
But then again, its not only because the family doesn't want to accept her as their own, its also cos she wouldn't be ready to accept the family as hers.

Jack said...

H G L :

You are right. It takes two to tango. She too has to reciprocate and accept new family as her own. Take care

Shruti said...
