Ram a 2nd year graduate student at UC Berkeley was visiting with his family in Delhi, India over winter break. His dad approached him for a serious conversation. His dad started, “you know your mother and I are not going to be around for ever, so you should know we have a lock box at the bank downtown.” Ram was made awkward by the conversation topic and insisted that they discuss it at some later time.
Ram relayed this story to me and I could see the beginnings of tear in his eyes.
Could this awkward conversation been avoided with the appropriate website to mediate the conversation?
