The bond between a parent and the child is that of a sacred one. Many a times, parents may be firm or strict with children if they feel the latter are naive or may be going on the wrong track.
However, in today’s age and time, once the children have turned 18, they may want to rebel, question and even use the law to their advantage, if parents try to mingle with their ‘personal lives’.
In a recent case from Ayodhya in Uttar Pradesh, a 19-year-old girl lodged an FIR with local police against her own father, who had stopped her from speaking with her boyfriend on the phone.
On the night of July 11, a XII pass girl from Jamuniyamau village was speaking to her boyfriend on phone at around 9pm, which is when her father objected.
The next morning, the girl along with her boyfriend reached the Ayodhya police station to lodge a complaint against the girl’s father, accusing him of criminal intimidation and apprehensions of breach of peace. The father, who is a shopkeeper by profession, was subsequently booked on his daughter’s complaint.
Devendra Singh, SHO Rudauli informed media that the father was summoned, fined and let off since the girl’s charge did not entail arrest.
Speaking with TOI, the SHO shared that the father had spotted his daughter speaking to her boyfriend over the phone, then scolded and threatened her with dire consequences. He had also instructed the family members to keep a watch on the girl.
This made the daughter furious and the next morning she called her lover home and then reached the Rudauli police station to give a written complaint. The SHO added,
I was shocked to see the complaint and summoned her father from the village to the police station. I even asked other family members and some counsellors requesting for a dialogue between the girl and her father. A woman sub-inspector was asked to talk to her.
However, the daughter was hell-bent and said that she was an adult and if her case was not registered, she would speak to senior officials. Concluding the matter, the SHO said,
As the FIR did not entail any provisions for an arrest and the girl insisted that the father must be punished, we booked him for breach of peace and then he was let off securing a bond.

- India and Indians love following the west, of course only when it suits us
- In the case above, one may argue that the girl is very much an adult and has full right to make her own choice and decisions of life
- Partially, we agree, that every individual should have the freedom to make friends or choose their life partners
- However, does that mean the intentions of parents can be doubted?
- In the west, both girls and boys after turning 18, leave their homes, become independent and then adopt their way of living a lifestyle
- In India, somehow children want their freedom, yet be dependent on fathers to provide for them financially and otherwise
- We have repeatedly said this. In India, we only want more and more rights without any accountabilities
- If the daughter is living in her parents’ home, feeding off her father’s money, then to some extent she must obey the rules of the home
- If it is all about my choice as an adult, whether it is a daughter or a son, one must become fully independent first, understand ground realities of life, not take any favours from parents and then make such bold statements
- & to all who say that such stunts only happen in metro cities, this case from Ayodhya is an eye opener to how India has changed irrespective of its geographical boundaries or locations
