All those hue and cry which media made was based on Press Trust of India news . Earlier when the parliamentary committee sent its report to parliament it made the suggestions as below

Accordingly, the Committee feels that there should be some effective legal mechanism so that the women at least get their share in the matrimonial property which has been acquired during the subsistence of marriage. The Committee, accordingly, recommends the Government to make adequate provisions in the Matrimonial Law to ensure that the courts, while adjudicating on divorce petitions, also decide upon women’s share in the matrimonial property while granting divorce so that they are not deprived of the assets/properties in which they have contributed during the continuance of marriage.

Since the REDRAFTED bill is not yet available to the public, it is unclear at this point that how this is suggestion is incorporated in the bill. Is this conditional; is it specific to any percentiles; what amounts to “contribution” and a myriad of questions are yet to be answered.

However, there is one philosophical question that requires significant attention here



A legislation which was originally brought in with a good intention to protect innocent women from dowry harassment is now being fearlessly misused by new age ill-educated women all over India with the core motive of “get rich overnight”.

It is a national shame and hard to agree fact that parents are taking broken marriages as an opportunity to cash out their daughters. This is not the only one section of the penal code that comes in to picture while cashing out daughters. Indian Penal Code provides various other sections like CrPC 125, Hindu Marriage Act, Hindu Adoption and Marriages Act and the latest being Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act which can be used to have a free of cost living out of someone else’s hard earned money.

The western tactics to break down the family system and there by destabilize India has proven to be worked out quite well so far. A Startling 1689 cases in a tiny state like Kerala that too in just four months would tell the success story of this “get rich overnight scheme” .

Parliamentary committee is considering a petition by Dr, Anupama Singh, and law commission has called for public opinion based on standing instruction given by Supreme Court of India to make proper amendments to 498a in order to curb the menace of rampant misuse. This huge number of cases, in academically, economically and socially advanced state like Kerala which has a fabulous sex ratio of 1084 women for 1000 men, underscores the necessity of repealing this draconian law from the statute books once and for all.

Over 50 years of misandry has pushed the whole Indian society into a psychological disorder of androphobia. Now Delhi High Court in its judgment has mentioned about this social feeling in strong language. Look at the recent judgment about DOWRY DEATH. Narender Singh Arora Vs State (Govt. of NCT Delhi) & Ors. I’m highlighting some of the contents of this judgment for your quick reference.

5. This case is a reflection of mentality which is now taking grip of parents of a deceased wife in the criminal cases. Whenever a woman dies an unnatural death within seven years of her marriage at in-laws’ house, whatever be the cause of death, the in-laws must be hanged. This case also shows how truth is losing significance because of the ego of the litigants to see that in-laws should be hanged.

7. The trial court went through these letters and after going through all the letters written by the deceased, preferred to believe the circumstances prevalent between deceased and her in-laws, as reflected by the letters instead of believing the testimony of father of the girl and other relatives of the girl who wanted the court to believe that it was a dowry death.

It is well known maxim that men may speak lies but the circumstances do not. The letters written by the deceased is her own testimony in respect of what kind of life she was leading. This testimony of her is unimpeachable and most reliable testimony because it was given by her when there was no shadow of any litigation between the two and relations were normal. The testimony given by her father is not normal testimony. Her father and other family members who deposed in the court testified after death of Arveen and their testimony is coloured with the loss they suffered due to sudden death of the daughter little realizing that she committed suicide not because of dowry demands but because of her fragile and sensitive nature which is reflected from the letters written by her.

How long would have these in-laws been suffering the legal trauma. This is nothing but the outcome of MISANDRY. My humble request to all journos and editors is to address the issue seriously with a broader mind and wider approach.

Now-a-days you will not see a single week without an article about female feticide in Indian dailies and magazines. Center for Social Research (CSR) in its annual report says ‘Family tradition and dowry system emerged as the two major causes of female feticides’. This quote is one of the favorites of Indian feminazis as well. Here is a common man’s arm-chair research and analysis about this issue based on the available historical census data of India in comparison with two other countries China and USA.

Graph given below shows the sex ratio of India from 1901 till 2001 as in CSR annual report which startled me and triggered this analysis.

Indeed it is a steady decline in the number of women over the period of hundred years. Obviously it gave birth to umpteen questions in my mind. The one that dominates every other question was

“What is the ideal sex ratio?”

But I couldn’t find any realistic answer for that. Anyone can say 1:1, but is that some where close to reality? Will it be sane to say at a given date and time the number of girls and boys on a particular geographical region will be equal if there is no sex selective abortion? Do we have any mechanism to find the exact figure at the given point in time? Absolutely NOT. I know the whole extended family of Pythagoras will stand up and say, ‘hey I have a formula to figure that out’.

Usually sex ratio is determined either based on the actual population or by cohort method. To me either of these methods doesn’t seem fit to come to a conclusion because the so called missing females may be due to take birth the next day of census.

Still I tried to understand why the graph above looks so pathetic. To get a deeper understanding lets take a wider look at the whole scenario.

This is the data for the same period of time showing the population as a whole along with total number of men and women according to each census. I assume you would have noticed the remarkable difference in number of men and women started in early or mid 60s. Until then the graph goes neck to neck though women were slightly less in number.

My point is, if we take the conclusion of CSR in its face value, i.e., family tradition and dowry system are the major cause of female feticides, then why is the number of females less during the first half of the century when we didn’t have any available sex determination technologies? I know CSR and feminazis are going to play the different card, ‘female infanticide’ and ‘dowry death’.

Before we try to digest that theory lets compare our population trend with that of United States of America. The reason why I chose USA is because it is pretty diverse with multi-ethnic as well as multi-racial communities; hence there are no social structures which may influence everyone.

Does that make your eyes wide open to see the same trend in early or mid sixties on the graph? But here the number of males came down after 1960! Except during the American civil war (1861–1865), which resulted in massive death of men, the number women were less than the number of men; not to mention the fact that men outnumbered women consistently through out 19th century!

Apparently, the sex ratio was similar or even lower than that of India mostly in 19th century and even during early decades of 20th century.

Was there a remote chance of dowry or family tradition in order to make this happen?

Why do we need Herculean formulas made out of thin air to prove something that doesn’t exist? Well, I’m leaving those questions to the readers.

Now the most conspicuous question is

what was the reason for the significant imbalance in the sex ratio from 1960 onwards world wide?

One who believes it is because of the selective killing of female fetus in India should also be willing to believe there was selective killing of male fetus in USA.

Obliviously or intentionally, CSR and all other international agencies that fund for the female feticide campaign, brushed the fact “Family Planning” under the carpet. It was by the end of fifties, countries around the globe started promoting birth control techniques like condoms and pills, which evidently have made severe damage to the natural balance in sex ratio. Remember, there were no prenatal sex determination techniques during the sixties; even in the present century these sophisticated technologies are affordable only to the rich. Further more the earlier methodologies used for prenatal sex determination require the fetus to be at least 16 to 20 weeks old in order to get accurate results! At that stage abortion is almost impossible or at the high risk of mother’s life. Such incidents of mass death of women due to abortions were never reported either in India or China.

Historical census data of China is not internationally accepted due to misreporting of birth; more over they started taking census only by 1953. But considering the huge population, the one child policy (publicly announced in 1979), and its strict enforcement should be a valid reason for the imbalance in their sex ratio if such an imbalance ever existed. Still history asserts that 94 females for 100 men (as per 2008 data), is not an alarming ratio. Simply blaming on son preference, patrilenial social structure and dowry system seems to be very cheap and low grade remarks to achieve devious goals.
