    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, now you know where is Shilpa's husband
