    What do you call Mama’s son and daughter? Also, What do you call Aatya’s son and daughter?

    We have separate names for these relations in my language, Tamil. Should be similar separate names in Marathi also I presume. Indian languages are very rich in family relations.

    What do you call your brother in law? (wife’s brother) What do you call your husband’s brother?
