Law creates certain fictions and require the Court to believe the existence of certain fictions and circumstances. The assumed fiction must be carried to the logical end. One of the classic examples of such fiction is that provided under Section 6 of the Hindu Succession Act. Where a coparcener in a joint Hindu family dies, the first fiction is that he died as a partitioned coparcener. If he has a son and a daughter, the second fiction is that he died separated with his son and daughter. The third fiction is that the share thus he ultimately obtained by the time of his death has been partitioned between himself and his heirs including his wife, if alive. All the fictions must be followed without break and all the fictions logically followed must be carried to the ultimate end. For instance, if ‘X’ is the share obtained by the coparcener who died from his original family, it gets divided into three shares as between himself and his son and daughter (1/3rd of ‘X’). Then the deceased’s share 1/3rd share will be divided between his wife, son and daughter (1/3rd of 1/3rd). Thus, the final position will be, son and daughter each 1/3rd + 1/3rd of 1/3rd and wife gets 1/3rd of 1/3rd only. Here the first fiction is that X died as a separated coparcener. The second fiction is that he died separated from his son and daughter. The third fiction in that his share is divisible among his wife, son and daughter.
