Never expected such a move from father; Woman moves court after father 'cheats' in Ludo game

BHOPAL: A surprising development came from Madhya Pradesh's capital Bhopal after a 24-year-old woman approached a family court against her father who defeated her in the popular board game ludo.

The woman was defeated several times in Ludo games by her father in Bhopal, said Sarita Rajani, family court counsellor.

"Nowadays, children are unable to endure defeat which is why such cases come up. They need to learn to accept defeat which is as important as winning," Rajani said.

During the lockdown period, the young woman, her two siblings and their father used to play the board game. After losing a game, the young woman developed resentment against her father, which increased over time and the family had to undergo counselling sessions to resolve the issue.

"A 24-year-old young woman had come to us and said that when she was playing Ludo with her siblings and father, her father killed her tokens (goti) and she felt it was a breach of trust. She said she had trusted her father a lot and didn`t expect to be defeated by him," said Rajani.

"Her father defeated her several times over time. Her anger increased and she stopped addressing him as a father. She has been counselled four times till now and the situation is improving. We will find a positive solution," she added.

Rajani said the girl did not share her feelings with her family and decided to seek counselling about the matter. She said the young woman is currently pursuing her studies, and the family lives in Bhopal city. The girl does not have a mother and she is the youngest of three siblings.

"People have high expectations from family members and if there is a slight shortcoming, it causes tensions. Nowadays, children are unable to bear defeat," she added.
