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.

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.
It's always refreshing to see that greed isn't a uniquely American trait.
