I recently visited an Indian family who live in my neighbourhood. It was an early evening visit and the family was preparing dinner. I couldn’t help noticing three women in the kitchen, running around, preparing food and drinks. I later learnt that the three were the granny, the lady of the house, and her daughter (who I think may be about 15 years old). In the living room I noticed six men sitting around the dining table, playing cards, relaxed and chatting.
