Caution Loose Women Ahead

Caution Loose Women Ahead

I, Prassoon Suryadas, plays only a role of translator in this article. The original article is written in Malayalam by Jyothi Sunil and published in Mathrubhumi daily.

An intimation has been given to the editor of mathrubhumi about this translation. If the tone and taste of the original article is misplaced during the translation, that is unintentional and will be rectified upon request.

It is the age of counting and tabulating sexual offenses. What is going wrong with people, not only women but also children are getting targeted to satisfy carnal greed. The hands of lust and crime get extended towards women in buses, trains and everywhere. The stories of offenders are celebrated in TV channels and news papers in a colorful manner. It has become a common trend to even inflate trivial incidents, like a nod or sitting next to a woman, and publish experiences of so called victims to paint the entire male population as criminals. This is the strange age of portraying all men as ‘hunters’ and women as their ‘preys’. Such incidents are increasing on a daily basis like never before.

Up until the beginning of this century, ‘harassment’ was not a word that was considered as harmful as it is today. Making people work overtime forcefully, not paying salary etc were the common definitions of harassment that we heard earlier in those days. But now, all of a sudden this word become a villain.

Later on, there has been a shift in the definition of this word into ‘Satanic deeds, both hidden and in open, of hyper-sexual men‘. Now harassment has become a common word to express this and even to describe incidents that doesn’t have the merits and ingredients of sexual harassment. Even petty eve teasers whom we can discipline by a sharp counter comment are getting portrayed as big assaulter to add fuel into the fire. Heroines of such stories were glamorized as super angels and men gets portrayed as hyper evil. Criminal cases are lodged and men gets defamed simply based on sole testimony of women; social status of his entire family gets irretrievably sabotaged, some get punished, some commit suicide.

These petty issues can be easily solved by being responsive and by having a little bit of guts. It has become so common now to criminalize, defame and bring big punishment to men just for a tiny touch, for winking or for showing bodily gestures. It could be a foolish move at the heat of the moment, but fearing the defamation if a man commit suicide, based on which law can we punish that woman? When people travel together in trains, buses, planes or in busy streets it is possible to touch, brush or stare at each other. Those women are recommended to restrain from drumming it up and make a mountain out of mole hill. If the matter is silly enough to sort it out by themselves isn’t it wise to do so, as opposed to putting foot in their own mouth. Is it necessary to file a law suit for silly things and run around the courts bragging about modesty? Before crying rape or harassment it is wise to pay attention to the future of the accused as well, they do not have any opportunity to give explanation, they are getting punished just based on the sole testimony of a woman.

I’m a person who run my own venture outside Kerala for about two decades. I used to travel alone in buses and trains during day time and in night as well. I’m a kind of person who instantaneously responds to such approaches made by men. First I respectfully ask them to move their hands, or to move themselves or to stop the conversation. If that fails then I tell them affirmatively; and that’s it. Never had any problem after that, in my experience. Even now I am not scared to travel anywhere. I am confident enough to respectfully deal with any sort of assaulter. If you want you can yell at them, that’s the second option; if the problem is not getting resolved I’m even up to slapping them with the sandels. But in my life time I never had to go to that extent. Because I got a feeling that, if we are responsive to the initial moves of assaulter then 90% of them immediately back off.

There may be people who are consciously luring women and forcefully try to outrage her modesty; I would call them perverts, alcoholics or drug addicts. They might be taking these extreme steps when they feel high on drugs or alcohol. There are some others who carefully plan and trap the victim. I don’t think there will be any difference in opinion to give stringent punishment to those who do such heinous crime. Even capital punishment is way too simple penalty for offenders as in Soumya murder case. I just cannot agree to the trend of inflating silly issues which can easily be sorted out in the first place, had those women handled the situation little more boldly.

Historically, film industry used to be the zone of harassment for women. Those who jump into that field used to get exploited by many, in order to get small roles and some even find path to heroines as well. I’ve heard of such stories from many kins. Here also the criteria for harassment are classified in to two. One party is willing to get exploited in return of a good role in the movie and the other party is willing to give good role to those who are willing to give away their modesty. A Win-Win scenario, there was no complaints from both the parties. But as film industry moved from Kodambaakam to Kerala, things started changing. Now a days we do not here such stories anymore. But that doesn’t mean this willful and bilateral exploitation cease to exist. However, to my knowledge, there has been a greater control and discipline in that sector which raised the level of respect to that field and thereby people from good family background and having good education started choosing their profession in film field.

Those who are seeking a chance in the movie and associated field are making a conscious decision by considering the hidden traps involved in it. Some move on even if they get trapped; makes more money and opportunities. In most industries there are people who are willing to compromise something for more comfort and luxury. Some of them easily succumb to temptations too. No matter whatever the reasons are, once the opportunities are utilized after making compromises and then at a later point when the secrets are out these people act like innocents by crying rape. Those who consciously seek pleasure under the cover of darkness, wear the mask of innocent victims when the light turns up. When this happens, everyone points their finger to the man and the woman easily step back behind the facade of great sati savitry and gathers all sympathy.

These kind of women are not ‘abalas’, they are ‘tabalas’; anyone can play it, only thing is when the tune goes odd, it will becomes rape. No one bothers to ask the woman that “did you intimate us while you find your own way to happiness?” Instead of that, they go in front of the cameras and microphones to abuse the man in question and the entire male population to prove themselves guilt free. We can find these ingredients in most of the rape stories in Kerala. Here the girl stays with many people in hotels and other resorts for several days. They stay in Mumbai or Hyderabad or Chennai or other places and do their business. They travel along with their ‘preys’ to different places. Gain enough and more money for the pleasure they provide. In some cases, they get help to reach these centers even from their close relatives like father brother and friends. But, after a long period of business when the matter goes out in public, in one way or the other, they file cases against everyone who utilized her service. Even here, the sole testimony of the woman is what getting counted. No one bothers about why this woman choose that way of life or about her background. She wasn’t blind folded or hands and legs tied when she was staying in these different hotels and resorts for several days. She happily cooperated and made enough money those days. Even when she was consciously traveling with everyone and selling herself as a product, all the consumers of that product become criminals base on her sole testimony! As if in trance, she utters several names, they all become accused in the law suit. In one of the infamous case in Kerala, the woman accused over 150 people. No one bothers to find the logic behind this accusation, neither they bother to double check the involvement of her family in this. Only the woman become innocent and every other person in the accused list are painted as hard core sex offenders. Their social, family and personal life gets sabotaged.

There should be change in the way of women wearing jeans that clearly shows the division of buttock, wearing skin tight dresses, not wearing bra or wearing those that do not serve the purpose of a bra and making it bounce and dance on the streets, or making it artificially projected. Women should cover the parts that needs to be covered and should not make those parts a tattoo gallery. We would have avoided a lot of harassment cases, had those women quit wearing skin tight or less dresses in the name of fashion; wouldn’t we? Isn’t the way of dressing a temptation for the offenders?

There had been ‘apsaras’ who danced half nude to break the meditation of great saints. Now its a whole different version of the same, by showing off the naval and uncovering style of dressing; a way of exhibition. It sends out the signal that, “we will show all these; if you watch it or get excited we will make you punished”. So, men beware. Its not the girls who do this are getting mad by saying this; its some radical feminists. They claim that no one should question the freedom of woman’s right to wear whatever they want and such inappropriate dressing will not make any temptation and all these arguments are baseless. I feel pity on them. We all have seen how serious they took the comment of the chairperson of National Commission for Women, “its okay to call women ‘sexy’” and come out to protest. I got a feeling that there will be drastic change in the meaning of the word ‘sexy’, the same way as what happened for the word ‘harassment’. There was big hue and cry in Tamilnadu when actress Khusbu mentioned that no one should question what happened in the life of a woman before marriage. In a nutshell what worries them more is the discussion, not the actual deed that leads to the discussion.

Apparently, those who get tempted and get harassed are both men. There is no bias to a monk, priest, legislator or a social worker when it comes to the matter of placing on the pedestal of harassment, its always men. Without considering the limits of the income, husbands are forced to take more loans and are getting pushed to the edge of suicide to buy more home appliances and other luxuries so as to match or show off among neighbors friends and relatives. Aren’t such men indeed harassed, who are simply attempting to satisfy their wives? Isn’t this a kind of domestic violence that men faces? When money and comfort flows with no obstacles and if unfortunately that flow stops, then he becomes a villain at once and gets prosecuted.

The violence and harassment that men faces are always priced very low or nil. Wives who drag their paramours without the knowledge of their husband; women who attempt secret intercourse with young paramours even after having kids and family, in the end they ditch their husbands and kids and run away with their young paramours for temporary pleasure. In all these cases the one who gets prosecuted are only the men. Isn’t that harassment of a husband when he gets socially humiliated and ridiculed for his wife’s affair with another man? Here as well, women never gets accused, everyone gives her the security of modesty. There are women who are capable of killing even the prime minister of a country using bomb. When she gets pregnant in the jail she is entitled to special privileges as a woman and is granted with appropriate treatment. When it comes to men, just because he cant get pregnant he has to count days for the capital punishment.

It is not appropriate for women to simply ask for equality just by claiming as the significant other half of men; punishment and legal processes should also be equal. We have heard a lot about what women are going through with domestic violence. But, does anyone ever take it on face value about the domestic violence that men face other than as a joke?

On March 3rd 2012 India Today published a filthy article authored by their reporter Neethu Chandra under the title “Dowry harassment: Delhi bride tortured by cruel NRI husband in US”. This was a demonstration of highest levels of yellow journalism; a totally farce story inflated with lies and false allegations. I’m not posting it here and make the entire wordpress stinky. The day after the editor was contacted they removed the article from the site. By that time it got propagated through all the channels and fooled all the readers; apparently, most readers are already awakened and have learned to identify the “bad apples” in the basket. Evidently, these kind of articles that cost less than dirt are putting the publishers themselves in poor light. Formal complaint with Press Council of India has been filed against both Neethu Chandra and India Today. Since the same article got published in DailyMail UK, Neethu Chandra and DailyMail another complaint has also been filed with Press Complaints Council UK. Daily Mail not only removed the article but also published the true story later,  “In-laws deny torture charges“. MSN also reported in similar lines http://news.in.msn.com/exclusives/it/article.aspx?cp-documentid=5900927

I hope this article will give you an insight about how to make complaints against yellow journalism. If something is unclear or you have any questions please post a comment and I will be happy to share the information that I have. It is a very simple process that anyone can follow.

If you find such articles first thing you have to do is to save a copy of it. You may either take a screen-shot, save it to a file , print it to a pdf or paper. This is required when you file formal complaint with Press Council of India. It is also required to contact the editor before we file a formal complaint.

In short what we need for a complaint are

  1. Complaint petition
  2. Copy of the news article
  3. Signed  declaration. (http://presscouncil.nic.in/images/decl.doc)
  4. Copy of the correspondence with editor.

In this case the correspondence with India Today is as given below.

Mail to the India Today Editor

Sub: – Notice as per Press Council (Procedure for Inquiry) Regulations, 1979

Dear Sir/Madam

 This is with regard to your news article published under the title “Dowry harassment: Delhi bride tortured by cruel NRI husband in US” at http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/dowry-case-delhi-bride-tortured-by-nri-husband-in-america/1/176291.html on March 3, 2012.

Could you please state that, whether or not those incidents mentioned in the article ever occurred? Do you have any substantial proofs, any investigation reports from government or private agencies, any court order either Indian or American, to support your claim? Have you made any attempt or got a chance to interview the person Kaling mentioned in the article? If yes, kindly state the reasons for not publishing any of his comments? Based on which investigative report or court order did you use the word “cruel NRI husband” in the title?

 Kindly provide the name, postal and email address, contact phone number of the reporter Neetu Chandra as well.

Please furnish relevant materials required to state that you have not breached the recognized ethical canons of journalistic propriety and taste by publishing the aforementioned article. This notice is to comply with the PIC Inquiry Regulations, 1979 and your early reply is very much appreciated within 15days.

Reply from India Today Legal Department

Mail Today will not be able to provide any information as sought by you, in your mail. Please be informed that you don’t have any locus standi to seek such information as mentioned in your mail. The subject matter of the article is a matrimonial dispute, and the same is pending enquiry before the court of Law. Apart from the article pertaining to Criminal Complaint we have also carried the version of Kalind Parashar’s family in our newspaper. We do not entertain any queries from private individuals pertaining to news published in our newspaper and hence we request you to desist from sending, any such mails in future.

The formal Complaint

Reasons why content of the above mentioned article is objectionable within the meaning of Section 14(1) of the Act

1) The article did not give the readers substantial material to support that those incidents covered have ever occurred. It is a cleverly worded, cooked up story to cheat the readers and therefore breached the recognized ethical canons of journalistic propriety and taste.

2) USA is not a lawless land like Afghanistan. The said article did not mention about any police report lodged or order of any legal authority in America, which underscores the fact that the stated offences are highly hypothetical and intended to raise false alarm. I believe, freedom of press does not mean the right to write whatever it likes; and therefore is an abuse of press freedom.

3) The said article does not carry any comments, justifications or whatsoever from the vilified character Dr. Kaling and his family, neither it talks about the attempts of press to contact them; hence the article is not bonafide and fools the readers.

4) The title of the article calls by name ‘cruel NRI husband’ where no court of law on this planet, to date, has declared so. More over this usage is extremely derogatory to the whole NRI community and so it should be considered as a very serious professional misconduct.

5) Notice to comply with Press Council (Procedure for Inquiry) Regulations, 1979 was served to the editor of India Today on March 3, 2012 (US – EST) and the said news link got removed from their website, in next few days. The notice was replied with an arrogant response denying all the requested information. This should be considered as acceptance of guilt and tantamount to approving all the 4 arguments mentioned above, beyond reasonable doubt.

I, Prassoon Suryadas, hereby humbly pray before the Press Council of India to consider this petition for inquiry and execute its inherent powers to take the most stringent action against respondent number 1 and 2 so as to uphold, maintain and improve the standards of newspapers and news agencies in India.

The full version of complaint is available to download from here.

No explanation is needed for the word ‘Misogyny’, isn’t it? It is the hatred or dislike of women or girls and is well known to even those who are not proficient in English language. But, ask someone having M.Phil in English literature about the meaning of “misandry”. More likely you won’t get any answer. It is the hatred or dislike of men or boys. Even though all the media, print, visual or internet, are widely engaged in this activity to the extent that they cannot even survive without it, how did this word become so unpopular? Out of curiosity I started tracking the Google search results since the beginning of year 2011. Here is what I found.

You may not even notice that tiny blue bars of misandry! How did this activity of misandry become a social norm? If you have any answer please post some comments for the benefit of all.

Today, on the occasion of International Men’s Day, let’s take an oat to quit misandry and work together to throw some light on the bad effects in the society because of misandry. It has influenced our judicial system, law makers and law enforcement departments alike, resulting in gross human rights violation of absolutely innocent men, at the same time encouraging the so called fairer sex to commit crime against men.

An MLA from Karnool in Andra Pradesh, T.G Venkatesh is running a campaign to encourage wives to beat their alcoholic husbands. He is offering Rs.1000 per hit and has already distributed prizes for 210 women. Is alcoholism an offense? Do alcoholics need abuse or therapy aimed at improving neurocognitive function?

A 20 year old girl from Kerala was recent caught by police for giving kisses over phone to fire-force crews. The number 101, is free and her cell phone call logs shows about 450 calls in less than two weeks period, police said. Well, before getting in to the outcome of this act, let’s think about what would have been the outcome if it was a 20 year old guy who called women officers? You guessed it right; he would have landed in jail for harassing women, might have paid a huge sum penalty or even get third degree treatment from the moral polices and official polices. Wouldn’t it? But in this case, this 20 year old girl was set free after giving a ‘warning’!

In another occasion, Times of India reported on 16th of nov 2011 that a woman who abused a magistrate hearing her case, the Delhi high court has dropped contempt of court proceedings against her. High Court said that a harried woman with a disturbed married life required succor and judicial remedy from courts and not the sword of contempt.

Where as Gujarat High Court levied a penalty of 2 lakhs to one Mr Dasharath Devda for filing a public interest litigation suit to address the gross misuse of Domestic Violence Act, which is badly affecting a large number of innocent people across the nation.

This kind of decisions taken merely on the basis of gender is sure not setting a standard that any Indian citizen can be proud of. Apparently it diminishes the respect towards this establishment and the lowers the confidence of the people in seeking justice before the court of law.

The point that I’m trying to make here is, all gender biased substandard judgments are the direct output of misandry. Let me remind again to take the oath to spread awareness about this nauseating practice and help making a change. The graph above gives us a little bit of hope as the numbers are gradually growing because of the resistance created by men’s rights activists.

Spare some time to visit http://www.internationalmensday.in and read the book “Equality for Men – Myth or Reality”. Also spread the word to as many people as you can.


Out of the pain felt from the backlash of pro-family Men’s group several women organizations are under deep distress; that are busy putting together a theory to counter the startling realities brought into light by Save Indian Family advocates.

Pro-family groups and activists are facing collective badmouthing from those who are hell bend on destroying the social fabric at the tunes of external globalist evil forces like CFR, Builderberg, USAID etc from which enormous amount of funds flow endlessly.

 

One of such Tamilnadu based organization even did a survey and over 100 page report, only to solidify the findings and arguments made by Save Indian Family advocates.

 

The core of this report clings on to the aspect of rising complaints, not conviction as pointed out by pro-family groups. This is a food for thought for the readers to find the logic in the presumption that “increased number of complaints indicates increased number of crime”. If it is so, then what is the need to spend huge amount of money and several years for investigations and trials. There will only be the need of Jails where people register complaints and they can put all the accused behind bars.

 

The SHOs interviewed opined that educated and employed young married girls are becoming self-centered due to their economic self-reliant. They are too sensitive and highly emotional as they don’t share the ethos and values imbibed by the members of the matrimonial family. They have less tolerance level and are against joint family system. Many complainants prefer to live separately with their husbands and as a result arises conflict with husbands and in-laws. Their parents rather than advising her mostly fuel their daughter’s emotions and supported her decisions.

 

Though they claim no charges were framed on such complaints, one can easily understand that it is to safe guard their jobs and hide their own black deeds. Is that ever happened in the history of this planet that the culprits admitting the crime for the purpose of preparing a report?

 

The SHOs also shared that the women develop an attitude that if they incorporate dowry component in the complaint petitions, it increases the severity of the offence. People develop a wrong perception that only dowry complaints are entertained by the police. Even the advocates have similar views; misguide their clients and prepare the petitions with a tone of dowry harassment.

 

It will be repetition of the same petition to amend 498a if I start pointing out the entire survey report here. Aggrieved by the findings and lack of arguments to counter the pro-family advocates, women organizations are now blaming “Patriachy”; ignoring the fact that it is the same “Patriachy” which enacted this law. They claim that low conviction is not because of false allegations or lack of evidences to prove the offence but because of the mind-set of Judiciary!

 

Final Conviction Rate at the level of Appeallate Courts

Chennai Coimbatore Cuddalore Dindigal Kanchipuram Kanyakumari Madurai Salem Sivagangai Trichy Virudhunagar
1.9% 7.7% 7.5% 1.0% 15% 1.9% 1.7% 2.9% 2.9% 2.7% 5.1%

 

Though the Conviction Rate for the offences under Sec 498A in Trial Courts is 20%, the final conviction rate declined to an average of 3.2%. The report invariably blames Judiciary with no mention of the chances of corruption in lower courts resulting in higher rate of convictions. It says “The mismatch between the conviction rate in trial courts and appellate courts raises a serious question about justice delivery system and the legal safeguards for women victims.”

 

In short EKTA / AIDWA and their likes are claiming that, in matriarchal mind-set false allegations are “Genuine” and a stated “women’s right”! The report showers blessing and praises to those who make false allegations saying “Further, due to the constant attempts by various organizations women started complaining about dowry harassment to the police; of course it is a healthy sign.

 

I would like to borrow the words from Smt. C.P.Sujaya IAS (Retd) and appeal the women organizations with a slight modification, “It is now time – in this new century – for the women’s movements to go in for a measured exercise of collective and honest soul-searching.

 


This is in response to Kalpana Sharma’s dung heap (If mothers and wives were paid) published by The Hindu on Sunday, Apr 03, 2011.

——————————————————————————————————————————–

With the burden of commercial work as well as domestic chores on their shoulders, men spend more time doing unpaid work for the family than women around the world…

Unrecognised contribution to the economy...

Unrecognised contribution to the economy...

All in a day’s work

Regardless of illness, tiresome, lack of interest, abusive boss or coworkers, millions of Indian men will have to work day in and day out in order to feed their families and look after children and elders financially medically socially and also to satisfy their entertainment needs. Such an invaluable contribution to the family has never been given a monetary value. No one knows what they contribute as they do a range of unpaid work — from household chores in the home after their routine job at workplace and running a small businesses to earn some extra bucks, to home-based work (that is not always paid), to helping out in a variety of tasks that they are expected to do only because they are men. Not even a single country has a monetary value been placed on such unpaid work.

No international organisations have ever come out with a study that looks at this issue: men’s unpaid work. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of “Myth of male power”, “Why men are the way they are”, “Why men earn more” etc takes a deeper dive into the amount of time men spends on unpaid work as compared to women.

Farrell found that men contribute more money to the family than women, at the same time women own more things than men do. Women have 4 options in life, 1) be a housewife 2) be a professional 3) do part time job 4) be occasional housewife where as the four options that are available for men are 1) work fulltime 2) work fulltime 3) work fulltime and 4) work fulltime. This is not surprising given that in practically all societies, men are expected to bear the maximum burden of formal as well as domestic work with women helping out if and when they can. Yet at the end of the day, it is the man who is automatically expected to take care of all the financial responsibilities, leaving kids at school, fixing broken stuffs etc; precisely, bringing home food shelter clothing and entertainment.

A current TV advertisement for insurance sums this up rather well. It shows a husband, obviously exhausted, working for his family who returns home and had a chest pain. The advertisement takes it for granted that the man should have taken insurance to protect his family EVEN AFTER HIS DEATH. There is nothing in the ad to indicate what the woman’s role in the family or her responsibility compared to her husband, one can well imagine. It would never have occurred to the woman to figure out a way of relieving her husband of this particular responsibility even if she is more educated or her earning potential is equal or more than her husband.

Huge differences

The ILO study found another element of concern, what the report calls a clear “gender gap” in working time. (http://www.ilo.org/global/about-the-ilo/press-and-media-centre/press-releases/lang–en/WCMS_082827) The study says men tend to work longer average hours than women worldwide, with women working shorter hours in almost every country studied. This is very true in Indian society. Women take advantage of employment at home and also take advantage of family at workplace. For example a typical Indian woman wants her husband to drop the kids off to school early morning as she wants to reach office on time because of an “important” meeting; at the same time she wants to leave the office early in the pretext of pick up the kids from school in the evening, handing over the critical responsibilities on male colleagues. And while the men work late, Indian wives and daughters spent time shopping, sleeping, eating, chatting with friends, watching television and relaxing.

Apart from the gender difference in time spent, the value of such unpaid work was not factored into economic calculations that assess a country’s development. “When we focus our binoculars only on discrimination, we miss opportunities available to women, such as the 80 fields (e.g., financial analysis, radiation therapy, statistics and most engineering fields) in which women now earn more than men” says Dr. Farrell who is the only man in the U.S. ever elected three times to the board of directors for the National Organization for Women in New York City

To many, this would appear to be a non-issue along with the issues that men face in terms of violence, inside and outside the home, many forms of discrimination, sexual harassment and assault etc which he has absolutely no available option of legal recourse. Yet, there is a good reason for assessing the extent of unpaid work men do, the gender gap between women and men on this count, and the value of their labour.

Quantifying the value

Men’s groups never advocated assessing the value of unpaid work until 27th march 2011 when they were forced (by the government of India) to come forward in large numbers sending memorandums to Law commission of India with regard to THE MARRIAGE LAWS (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2010. There is no world conference or even national level commission to address the issues of men and they remain as second class citizens even in this 21st century!

A strong reason for not putting a monetary value to such work is that it puts a price tag for human relations where everyone lives and dies for money minus all family and social values. In India, such women — and they are mostly women — who are well paid to advocate such absurd demands of putting price tag for housewives are reducing the value of motherhood and even womanhood. Setting a standard for the amount they should be paid for the kind of work they are expected to do is tantamount to reducing motherhood into a surrogacy; reducing nurturing care and love into a paid service. What is even more disappointing is that women, who is said to have good education and earn well in the formal sector, seems to have replaced all their moral, family and social values with M O N E Y, and they dance on the tunes of Rothschild’s International banking dynasty.

Gender assumptions

Ultimately, the issue is not the amount of time spent on unpaid work, or whether men should be paid for such work, but the expectation that they will do it unquestioningly and for all time to come. Surely, with so much changing around us, this is yet another arena where gender roles must be questioned; why would the physically easy and non-hazardous household work should also be shared with men after his regular and mandatory hours of job at risky and dangerous workplace, and where those who work silently to run millions of families around the world, should be given the honor, recognition and appreciation that they deserve.

 


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.
