I would like to add that, when I heard the news of your brother's death, I was very much shocked and grieved. Because through his death I have lost the only person in this world whom I really loved and respected.
Unfortunately I cannot live like an Indian woman should after the death of her husband, because I am bound to live in Europe and due to the fact that I must earn my living I am forced to mix with people and cannot make a show because they would not understand my feelings here. Besides the whole thing is still a secret.
But in my memory I have put up a shrine for him and through his child he will always be alive for me. Should you want to make any suggestions regarding the child or have any questions to put, please let me know and I shall gladly answer you or give you any information wanted.
May I in this connection ask you to send me later on some family photos so that I might keep them for Anita till she is grown up and then give her an idea about her father and his family. Please accept my best wishes for your family and yourself as well as my best regards, Yours sincerely, Emilie Schenkl In the absence of a response from Sarat Chandra Bose, Netaji's elder brother Emilie re-sent copies of the letter on 15 May and 1 Augustagain with no word from Sarat, who as it later transpired had received none of them.
In the meantime, an Indian doctor residing in Vienna Dr Akmat, who together with his wife had known Emilie and Anita, took it upon himself around mid to draw to the attention of Nehru and Sardar Patel the existence in Vienna of the wife and daughter of Subhas, claiming that they were living in hard circumstances.
On 11 and 13 August -- virtually on the eve of independence -- Sarat received from Nehru and Sardar Patel, respectively, copies of Dr Akmat's missive. Sarat responded somewhat acerbically that if the information were true, he Sarat was quite capable of looking after Subhas's family in the absence of Subhas.

Thus, it was that in August when he was contending with the catastrophe of Partition and the tragedy of divided Bengal, Sarat came to learn from those who were now his political enemies, of the possibility that Subhas had left a wife and child in Europe.
Sarat would have been acutely aware too that those who feared a return of Subhas at this time to the Indian political landscape would miss no opportunity to denigrate him. Emilie's reply to Sarat of 17 May was received by him on 27 Mayand his second letter of 8 July in response finally resolved the confusion caused by the failure of her original correspondence to reach Sarat for more than two years.
With the puzzle now solved, Sarat welcomed Emilie and daughter Anita into the Bose family, together with a note of caution about false propaganda continuing to be spread by 'eminent Congress leaders who were political enemies of my brother. Professor Sugata Bose, MP. Dear Madame Schenkl, Your kind letter of the 17th May last was delivered here on the 27th May and was most welcome. In up to the month of October, I was mostly away from Calcutta and was also moving from place to place.
My wife and daughters were with me.
I had no secretary then in Calcutta and I would not be surprised if the letters you wrote to me in fell into the hands of people who opened them and pocketed them. I need hardly say that anything that concerned and concerns my brother always had and has the greatest significance for me. Possibly you heard from him several times of the relations between him and me. I heard from Colonel Habib-ur-Rehman in August all about the air-crash story; but, though I have not had any facts to the contrary, I ought to tell you that the air-crash story left me unconvinced about its truth.

I have always had and am still having the feeling in me -- it is no more than a feeling -- that my brother is alive. I did not reply to your letter of 17th May earlier as I had intended to go to Bombay and find out for myself the nature of the propaganda that was being carried on there against my brother and to communicate to you something about it. By the time your letter came, I had heard from friends in Bombay who had come to Calcutta something about that propaganda.
My wife and I went to Bombay last month and returned to Calcutta on the 4th of this month. The propaganda that is being carried on in Bombay is subtle. The suggestion is that my brother had committed a sin and had left you stranded.

It is also being circulated in Bombay that Sardar Patel came to your rescue and that he has paid you rupees 18, I know that it is altogether false propaganda; still I felt that I owed it to you to give you some information about it.
Usually, first preference is given to the same caste. The ancestry of the individual and the family's culture and traditions also play an important part.

These items are usually returnable if the match does not proceed: In those scenarios, families customarily cooperate to eliminate any trace of a matchmaking conversation between them. Meeting prospective spouses[ edit ] If the prospective partners express a desire to meet or if the families are enthusiastic about a potential match, it is customary for the prospective groom's family to visit the prospective bride's family.
It is traditional for the boy's family to arrive with the boy and be seated with the entire girl's family except the girl, who then makes a dramatic entrance dressed in fine clothes, often bringing tea and refreshments. This practice is sometimes called "seeing the girl" and has been attacked by some Indian and Pakistani feminists as a classic instance of gender-bias and the objectification of women.
The families usually part after this initial meeting without any commitment made by either side and with the expectation that they will confer separately and send word through the matchmaker should they be interested in pursuing matters.

Marriage is virtually universal, divorce rare, and virtually every marriage produces children. Almost all marriages are arranged by family elders on the basis of caste, degree of consanguinity, economic status, education if anyand astrology. The senior male of the household—whether father, grandfather, or uncle—typically is the recognized family head, and his wife is the person who regulates the tasks assigned to female family members.
Males enjoy higher status than females; boys are often pampered while girls are relatively neglected. This is reflected in significantly different rates of mortality and morbidity between the sexes, allegedly though reliable statistics are lacking in occasional female infanticideand increasingly in the abortion of female fetuses following prenatal gender testing.
Traditionally, women were expected to treat their husbands as if they were gods, and obedience of wives to husbands has remained a strong social norm.
