SAS - BAHU SQUABBLE AND DELHI CHILDREN (READ VOTERS) GO HUNGRY.

Did you hear the story of the Sas-Bahu-Beggar story in childhood? If, yes, plase recollect. If not, here is the story. Please enjoy.

Once a beggar came to a house and sought alms. The daughter-in-law (bahu) who opened the door said there were no left overs of food in the house and asked him to come next day. The Mother-In-Law (Sas) heard the bahu talking to some one and asked her. On hearing the bahu turned away a beggar without her permission, the Sas called the beggar back, who came with lot of hope, was flabbegasted when the Sas told him that she owned the house and only she was fit to turn away a beggar and turned him away again. 

I never thought I would recollect this story, but for teaching my grandchildren.  Iam amazed this story being enacted in Delhi daily between an elected CM and the Congress appointee LG. Though BJP has no role in it, both try to score points over one another by bringing the Centre into the spar. It is a different story that BJP continued the Congress appointee in Delhi to see that the mud did not stick to their hands.

The fun part is the continuation of the serial of Ms.Smriti Irani, the respected, erudite HRD Minister's very famous serial "Sas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi". One day CM is Sas, LG, the Bahu and next day the roles reverse. 

So, when CM appointed his close confidant as DCW Chief, LG, the Sas turned down the appointment, recalled the file and appointed the same woman as DCW Chief. Not only that, he said, Delhi was his feifdom as he was ruling it even before the Bahu came in a love marriage between autowallahs and the CM. CM refuted this saying he was loved by more people than the LG and he owned Delhi. Voters were looking like the sandwiched husband in joint families. 

We can quote instances of the Sas turning into Bahu, Bahu turning into Sas and both hugging each other in a bout of sudden love when they think of the injustice meted out to both by the common bete noir, the Son/Husband. I need not name him. In this bonhomie,both spend crores on posters to hit out at the common enemy. But the statesmanly enemy huband/son knows that without his help both will be orphans. Hence he enjoys the opera in  Broad Way, where every one sings and none follows what they are singing. Too monotonous!

But before we go into incidents of this  'changing of masks' between Sas and Bahu, and many more beggar stories, let us learn a song in Telugu. I will try to translate it as sweetly as possible in English. This was a private song sung by the Andhra'a best ever singer Ghantasala.


అత్తలేని కోడలుత్తమురాలు ఓలెమ్మా కోడల్లేని అత్త గుణవంతురాలు ఆహ.. ఊహూ.. ఆహ.. ఊహూ.. అత్తలేని కోడలుత్తమురాలు ఓలెమ్మా కోడల్లేని అత్త గుణవంతురాలు 



सास बिना बहू परम पवित्र
हाँ हूँ  




बहू बिना सास अत्यंत गुणात्मक

 हाँ हूँ



(Mother-in-law without a daughter in law is sanctimonius and daughter-in-law without mother-in-law is sacrosanct)


కోడల కోడల కొడుకు పెళ్ళామా ఓలెమ్మా పచ్చిపాలమీద మీగడేదమ్మా .
ఆ వేడిపాలల్లోన వెన్న ఏదమ్మా ఆహ.. ఊహూ.. ఆహ.. ఊహూ 

बहू, बहू मेरी पुत्र की पत्नी मेरी माँ
ठण्डा दू पर मलाई कहाँ हैं 
गरम दूध पर लोनी कहाँ या
 हाँ हूँ  हाँ हूँ


Fight goes on like this. Mother in law asks "What happened to the cream on cold milk and butter on hot milk.



అత్తమ్మ నీ చేత ఆరడే గానీ ఓలేమ్మా పచ్చిపాలమీద మీగడుంటుందా 
ఆ వేడిపాలల్లోన వెన్న ఉంటుందా ఆహ.. ఊహూ.. ఆహ.. ఊహూ 

सास तेरी हाथ परेशान ज़्यादा मेरी माँ 

ठण्डा दूध पर मलाई रहता कहाँ 
गरम दूध पर लोनी रहता क्या  
हाँ हूँ  हाँ हूँ



Daughter in Law replies, "It is only your harrassment unlimited,. How can there be cream on cold milk and butter on hot milk

అత్తలేని కోడలుత్తమురాలు ఓలెమ్మా కోడల్లేని అత్త గుణవంతురాలు ఆహ.. ఊహూ .. అహ …

सास बिना बहू परम पवित्र
हाँ हूँ  
बहू बिना सास अत्यंत गुणात्म



हाँ हूँ



(Mother-in-law without a daughter in law is sanctimonius and daughter-in-law without mother-in-law is sacrosanct)

వంట ఇంటిలోన ఉట్టిమీదుంచిన సున్నుండలేమాయే కోడలా 
మినప సున్నుండలేమాయే కోడలా … ఆహ.. ఊహూ.. ఆహ.. 
ఊహూ ఇంటికి పెద్దైన గండు పిల్లుండగా ఇంకెవరు వస్తారె అత్తమ్మా 
వేరే ఇంకెవరు తింటారే అత్తమ్మా …

हंडी के उपर लड्डू कहाँ गया मेरी बहू
उड़द लड्डू कहाँ गया मेरी बहू
हाँ हूँ  हाँ हूँ

घर मे बड़ा बिल्ली हैं तो और कौन आते है सासू माँ
और कौन आके खाते हैं सासू माँ 


What happened to the Udad Laddus on the Handi, Daughter in Law?



When there is a big cat at home who else comes, Mother-in-La?w?

ఛీ పో… నీ జిమ్మడా…. ఉండు నీ పని చెబుతా… కొరివితో అత్తమ్మ గుమ్మానికంతా వచ్చిందీ పొమ్మని కాలంట కుట్టిందీ తేలు 
అయ్యో.. అబ్బా … అమ్మా … అయ్యో ఆ… ఎందుకీ పోరని ఏడుస్తూ మా అత్త మంచి దానిమలే మళ్ళిపోయింది ఆ… ఎందుకీ పోరని ఏడుస్తూ మా అత్త మంచి దానిమలే మళ్ళిపోయింది ఆహ.. ఊహూ అత్తలేని కోడలుత్తమురాలు ఓలెమ్మా కోడల్లేని అత్త గుణవంతురాలు ఆహ.. ఊహూ .. అహ … -

ची जा थैरो तेरे बात बताता हूँ  
सास गुस्सा मे लाए आग छड़ी 
बिछड़ू काटी उसको दरवाजा आते ही 
अय्यो, अब्बो बोलके पीछे गये सासू माँ 

हाँ हूँ  हाँ हूँ


जगड़ा मुझे नहीं काहिए बोलके सासू वापस गये 



Mother in Law went in and brought a burning stick to burn the hsnd of daughter in law.A scorpion at the door bit her and she retreated saying, "Why should I have this fight?,"



सास बिना बहू परम पवित्र
हाँ हूँ  

बहू बिना सास अत्यंत गुणात्मक

हाँ हूँ

Back to our blog. Without the CM and his antics, LG says he can administer Delhi better. Without LG the CM thinks he can administer State better. People are confused like the children in the house who are not getting quality food, sleep and education due to the sas-bahu squabbles. The owner of the house is enjoying the show as he has nothing to lose or gain in the squabble. He may interfere at appropriate time to show he is owner of the house. In the meantime, the population of Delhi, who speak many languages can sing this song translating into their native language and enjoy the fun.




But, you have to wait till the scorpion of vote bites the CM and he retreats. Pray God! You brought this on yourselves.



God save Delhi from sas-bahu-sas!
