Norway NRI Nautanki… Continues

Links to the previous posts on the same issue – just to refresh your memory:

And now for the latest from the pathetic parents and the eccentric extended family:

"

Kolkata: Within a month of their return to India, two NRI children, who were earlier taken into foster-care by the Norwegian Childcare Services, find themselves in a new controversy -- their families have filed police complaints against each other alleging threats to kill.

Sagarika Bhattacharya, mother of Abhigyan (3) and Aishwarya (1), has complained to Kulti police station in Burdwan (West Bengal), alleging that her father-in-law, Ajay Bhattacharya, had sent some goons to threaten to kill her if she came near the children.

Mr Bhattacharya, on the other hand, on Friday filed a complaint in the same police station counter-alleging that Sagarika and her father Manotosh Chakrabarty had been threatening them with dire consequences if they did not return the children to their mother.

Amid all the allegations and counter-allegations, the children remain silent sufferers, literally, as little Abhigyan has been diagnosed with "attachment disorder" which has robbed him of his ability to speak.

I did mention (in my previous post on the subject) that these kids would be better off with the Norwegian CWS. The kids must be kept away from this crazy family.

Honestly, feels great to be right. At times though, I wish I wasn't right every single time.

You fail to mention that Norwegian CWS is a factor in the parents fractured marriage. In the Nordic countries the divorce rate is 50%, so who are the Norwegians to lecture to Indians? Are you one of those Indians who believes that West always knows best?

No,

I am NOT one of those "Indians who believe West always knows best"

I am one of those who have a thinking brain. Unfortunately, there seems to be a massive shortage of this particular type of individuals (irrespective of the nationality).

As far as blaming the NWCS goes, I don't think they walk around from one house to another just to separate the kids from their parents at random.

It is not as if they are bored and assign kids to foster homes just for kicks or for passing away their time.

There would have been SOME BASIS for them to have taken such action.
OR are YOU one of THOSE INDIANS who believe that ALWAYS someone ELSE is at fault?!

If you were to follow the entire events (as highlighted in various news articles), it will be rather obvious that this family has serious issues.

I suggest you read a well-researched article on the subject in Economic and Political Weekly in May, " Norwegian Child Services: A Tale of Ethnocentric Hegemony". The authors have gone through Norway's own publications about their brutal "child welfare" system. As for the family having "serious issues", even imperfect people have rights - but not in your view, apparently. Before forming an opinion on what you think the Norwegian "child services" do, I suggest you gather more information on the subject.

I never said they don't have rights. Of course they do. They are free to use those rights.

By expressing my opinion, I am NOT depriving them of their rights.

They have been exercising their rights. To sue each other and their extended cuckoo families or for anything else - is entirely up to them.

Err.. I don't recall mentioning that they should NOT have rights.

Simple version - Husband and his family state that the wife has a mental condition.

Wife and her family make statements that the guy and his family are bullies.

Are you suggesting that SUCH an environment is NOT going to have an adverse effect on the kids?

Were the kids older - yes, they would have their own problems and PERHAPS may not have been effected with all that.

Are you suggesting that the NCWS is the cause for the wife being cuckoo?

According to her father in law, she has had a mental disorder even prior to the NCWS making an entry into the story.

Thank you for your suggestion. Here is one from my side - While you are gathering MORE INFORMATION on the subject, do try to gather some common sense as well.

YOU are free to form your opinion and gather all the information you need. I have formed my opinion based on the information available to me.

Now, if you want to defend the cuckoo case couple's 'right' to have their children with them - go ahead.

Given all the crap the couple has been up to - anyone with a bit of common sense would be able to conclude that nothing good could possibly come from them being around their kids.

TYPO.

In my first reply:

"As far as blaming the NWCS goes, I don't think they walk around from one house to another just to separate the kids from their parents at random."

It is supposed to be NCWS (arrggh).

Thank you for your suggestion.

The problem is - I read only for Pleasure, Profit or Leisure.
