I am not sure where this thought came into my mind! Talk about random thoughts.

Why does the Bhabhi or Anni, the sister-in - law revered as a motherly figure for the brother or sister of the married elder male sibling but in case of the married female's husband thinks of his wife's sister, his sister-in-law as someone he can attain if wife dies.

This might sound like a B-Rated cine flick but does happen at the grass root level in the society.

sisters-in law with a marked difference.

i'm not sure if this is limited to just the grassroots of the society. there are plenty of rich, educated, or othe "above grassroots" families who get a gal married to her elder sis's husband if the elder one dies.
but i also believe this works the other way too in some places...girl being married off to the husband's bro wen she's widow. less heard of than the previous, but it does happen.
guess its just a matter of convenience...saves the trouble of looking for someone who'd fit in with the family's sceam(scheam?) of both cases.
yeah, random thought! :)
