Jajpur:             In a rather intriguing incident, a 75-yr-old man named Khetra Mohan Mishra of Muraripur village in Dasrathpur block of Jajpur district in Odisha has decided to name the government as his property’s beneficiary after his death. As per his allegations, he is being mistreated and harassed by his son and daughter-in-law which has compelled him to take this extreme step.

“For the last 30 years, I have been constantly harassed by my son and daughter-in-law. I have lodged many complaints against them but now I feel that my property should be put into good use. After my death, I wish that the property should be used for some old-age-home in which old destitute persons can find shelter. So I have made a will and handed it over to the Collector of Jajpur, Ranjan Kumar Das,” informed Khetra Mishra.

Interestingly, he has only one son but is staying with his nephew in the neighbourhood for quite some years, though his wife stays with the son. He was a journalist by profession in a regional print medium during his hey days and owns a house and land.  

“Khetra Mohan Mishra has asked us to make arrangements so as to shift him to some old age home as he is ill-treated by his family members. Moreover, he has also asked the government to dispose his body after death without handing it over to his son. As per his wish, we have identified an old age shelter for him in Chandikhole. He also wants that an old age home should be built on his land after his death,” informed Ranjan Kumar Das, Collector, Jajpur.

When his daughter-in-law was confronted by media, she had a different story to tell altogether.

“I have been married to his son for the last 10 years, and I have not seen my father-in-law staying with us. He lives in his nephew’s place in the neighbourhood. He has even severed all kinds of relationship even with my mother-in-law. He takes his share of the farm’s produce and vegetables every time but always talks ill about us. He is my father-in-law, and I have nothing to say about his behaviour. But his allegations are totally false,” blurts out Arati Mishra, his daughter-in-law.

Abuse of elderly persons has now become a prevalent affair in India where a value based, joint family system is supposed to prevail. But in this particular case, it is quite difficult to ascertain as to who is to blame?
