Solution:

Shilpa (MOM 'M') is 21 years older than Raju (Child 'C').

M = C + 21

In 6 years from now the mom will be 5 times as old as the child.

M + 6 = ( C + 6 ) x 5

C + 21 + 6 = ( C + 6) x 5

C + 27 = 5C + 30

-3 = 4C

C = -3/4

The child is -3/4 year old, that's -9 months.

Child will be born in 9 months.

So, right now, Shilpa's Husband is on top of her:D;-)

    Not necesarily true, the boy’s father is on top, not necesarily the woman’s husband

    That was tricky, I thought we had something really hidden to decipher from the letter of their names and such. But thanks for posting this; I had fun reading and solving somehow. Where’d you get this problem from?

    Or possibly Shilpa is the one on top of her husband, making him underneath. ;-)

    Both Scott and Susan are not approaching this puzzle from a purely mathematical perspective. But they are valid points!

    hmm… Doesn’t the actual conception take place some time after sex? I read it takes about 24 hours for the fertilization process to complete. Now this calculation doesn’t have a precise enough answer, so it could be that the father of the baby is actually at work right now.

    LOL. Tried my very best solving where Shilpa’s Husband is. This is funny and very humorous. I can imagine how my office mate would react to this!
