All in the Family
Two sisters involved in a bitter family battle over the ownership of the Patak curry sauce empire celebrated an £8 million victory over their brother and mother yesterday.It's always refreshing to see that greed isn't a uniquely American trait.
Outside the High Court in London, Chitralekha Mehta and Anila Shastri beamed with delight at the settlement. But their smiles masked the tragedy of a family rift that will never be healed.
They are split irrevocably from their mother, Shantagury Pathak, and brother, Kirit, 51, even though they are now co-owners in Patak Spices.
