Death is not the end. There remains the litigation over the estate. – Ambrose Bierce
As an animal there are only two instincts 1) survival of self and 2) protection and wellbeing of the offspring. Estate planning addresses the second part viz, protection and giving a good start to our next generation. Though there will be fewer complications to it if you have done your estate planning and distribution, however, if not properly stitched then to claim the assets our kids may have to go through the legal hassles, which at least in India may take years to settle the case. That’s what the quote by Ambrose Bierce says- Death is not the end. There remains the litigation over the estate.
