Story of Three Envelopes
by Seshu Chamarty Bookmark and Share
The newly wedded wife stepped into the bedroom and saw a note on the bedside desk. She read it out of her curiosity before the new groom arrived. It read,
‘Take a look into the desk drawers and check three envelopes. They will help you whenever you are in trouble. I am leaving the house on a long pilgrimage. Love, Your mother-in-law.’
After the initial endearing, the groom asked her whether she was thinking of children right away. Unable to give a ready answer she opened the desk drawer, picked the first envelope and the read the note: - Say No. Ask for time.

A few days later, there was a big fight among the in-laws of that traditional composite family residing in the big house. The issue was who was going to acquire the permanent rights to take the ancestral house. The new wife rushed upstairs and read the note from the second envelope. It read - Press your toe hard and throw a fit. She did the same in front of the astonished family. She got the rights to live in the house exclusively with her husband.

Eventually she bore children and raised them into a big family herself. Soon her eldest son was married. The nuptial was arranged in the same bedroom.

In the middle of the night, her new daughter-in-law tapped on the door of the spare bedroom in the basement of the house to hand her mother-in-law a yellowed envelope which she said was found in the drawer in her bedroom. It read - Get ready to leave the house on a long pilgrimage.
