Angry with son, UP man wills his property to state

Agra, Nov 29 (IANS): After a woman in Odisha bequeathed her property to a rickshaw puller, an 83-year-old man in Agra has given his immovable property worth around Rs 2.5 crore to the state.

The man, Ganesh Shankar Pandey, claimed that his eldest son has been troubling him and he did want him to inherit his property.

Pandey, who trades in tobacco, also handed over a copy of his will that he had made to City Magistrate Pratipal Singh.

"I have taken the decision to transfer my 250 square yard house in Peepal Mandi to the District Magistrate after much deliberation," Pandey said.

"My eldest son, Digvijay, his wife and two children live in my house. Digvijay has been continuously demanding a share of the property, and this has caused much trouble to me. My son does not respect me and often misbehaves with me. There is no reason for me to care about him. I have been asking him to focus on the business that I have developed over the years, but he is instead trying to grab my property. That is why, I have made up my mind to transfer the property to the District Magistrate so that it can be properly utilised by the government after my death. I have enough money to sustain myself," he said.

According to sources, Ganesh Shankar Pandey, along with his three younger brothers, had acquired a 1,000 square yard property in 1983.

The four brothers built a big house on that plot. Families of all the four brothers live in the same property. Later, with mutual understanding, the property was divided into four parts.

Pratipal Singh said: "According to the circle rate, the property is worth several crores of rupees. The entire matter has been brought to the notice of the District Magistrate."

Meanwhile, District Magistrate Prabhu N. Singh said: "The matter will be discussed with Ganesh Shankar Pandey. We will suitably help him if he is in any trouble. In case, he files a formal complaint, required action will be taken under the Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act."

    What will State will do with n, Ganesh Shankar Pandey's 250 sq yard house and with his assets. Rather if he has made a will in the name of Charitable organisation like House for the elders, neglected parents, then there would have been more benefits to the needy. This attitude of revenge against his own son, is not good.

    Very wise decision by Mr Pandey. The Chinese have a saying: the family wealth remains for three generations: the first generation works for 20 hours a day building it from nothing, the second generation expands it to employ a 100 people, and the third generation squanders it all through gambling, alcohol, drugs and friends. The sons will know the value of money ONLY when they earn it by themselves. But most people are like the Chinese first generation: work, work, work, and leave it all for the lazy sons.

    This is not just a Chinese proverb, it happens, and has happened, even in Mangaluru. What this angry father has done in UP is just "reward" for ungrateful son who is a prodigal son. Let him work his butt off to make his own fortune.
