Indian Youth and Gender Biased Laws ?

June 6, 2013

The youth is a soul of any Nation. Nation’s prosperity & development is heavily dependent on the contribution of its Youth in nation building. There be no doubt about their strength, power and capability. The youth are filled with tremendous energy and towering ambitions. It needs no spark for ignition. Youth is so primitive that can be moulded in either shape one wants but surely, it is also the reason for the both exploitation and utilization of youth in the destruction and construction of any nation respectively.

India is second most populated country in the world and having tremendous youth power at its disposal but India, for long now, failed miserably to recognize and realize the true potential & capabilities of its huge youth asset. 

The young people in India today are confused and is under great pressure from out of challenges it is facing from each & every corner of its life be it, corruption, un-employment, limited opportunities, dirty politics, poverty, Alcoholism & drugs, anger & violence etc etc. these factors are playing big role in India’s major concern of brain drain. These factors are so deep rooted and complex that to overcome them seems impossible for the country like India.

However, one another major factor where India has “Axed its own Feet” and can easily be overcome is enforcement of gender biased laws.

Generally, every person marries in his prime age (youth) and in case of any trouble in marriage with gender biased matrimonial laws in place, these laws encourage the favoured side to be an unscrupulous litigant and the young energy & potential gets diverted to engaging and coming out of this Mess flying colours.

 A young Wife with an advantage of having matrimonial laws in her undue favour and in pursuit to be perceived as empowered women puts all her energy & potential to use these laws as tools of harassment & extortion against her husband & his family members. She leaves no stone unturned to inflict every kind of cruelty on her husband and becomes revengeful with motive of teaching him a good lesson.

Whereas, on the other hand, a young husband finds  himself  in a hot soup for atleast 10-15 years just because of gender biased matrimonial laws. He is forced to spend his golden years in fighting legal & vicious battle draining all his energy & potential.

Why this is a major factor of waste of young energy?

Because, Gender Biased Matrimonial Laws have each and every family/home in its range and these biased laws are hitting the very root of our society i.e. family. Our young minds, energy and vibrant potential are being eaten up by these laws. The Young minds of India are busy in fighting the battle of their life because of these numerous gender biased laws.

Now, in this scenario, how can India be hopeful of being progressive ?

 ” A serious thought is needed at the level of Government with enough of political will to at least scrap the biasedness in matrimonial laws so as to save & utilize the what little of huge youth power it can to make India a progressive nation.”

RIGHTS WITHOUT RESPONSIBILTIES

July 3, 2010

It’s a well known principle  thatRights don’t exist without Responsibilities”.

 How ironical is this in Indian Scenario?

 In India

 The moment a woman marries, it becomes immaterial whether she has discharged any matrimonial responsibilities or not but Indian legal system  automatically bestows her with the Rights :

  •  To implicate any near & dear to her in-laws including her husband in criminal or civil cases.
  • To legally extort or threaten the in-laws to bow down to her wishes.
  • To have full satisfaction of her biological need(Sex)
  • To have all types of protections against domestic violence viz. emotional, verbal, financial, physical, psychological etc.
  • To have maintenance from husband to never feel like loosing anything.
  • To fight legal battle in courts against her husband with his money itself.
  • To deprive the Child Custody to husband while raising her children on his money itself.
  • To have Alimony for rest of her life so that he cannot forget her.

 Now let us talk about the Man

 The moment a man marries in India he is automatically burdened with the Responsibilities & Duties for life :

  • Providing safe environment to wife where nobody could ask a question to her on her matrimonial responsibilities.
  •  Providing full satisfaction to his wife of her biological need(Sex).
  •  Providing full monetary, physical, emotional, social support to wife and children. 
  • Providing all types of Protection against domestic violence viz. emotional, economical, verbal, physical, psychological, social etc. to his wife & children. 
  • Providing Maintenance to his wife & children including the money to them to fight cases against himself. in addition to provide maintenance to his own parents & family. 
  • Providing maintenance for every need of his children but can’t have custody of children. 
  • Providing Alimony for life to wife & children for their bright future.

 So as per above. Man is made to keep on discharging his responsibilities during and even after breaking up of marriage, on the other side, woman is completely free of any responsibilities (during or after)but enjoys full rights even after breaking up of marriage( when she is definitely not discharging any matrimonial responsibilities in connection with this marriage )

 Why this discrimination among genders?

 The Great Indian Rationale

In Indian belief the Marriage is a Sacred Institution and “is a Union of Two Souls into One”. It seems that giving this spirit of Indian marriage prime importance, the government and lawmakers in India is trying to maintain the Rights & Responsibilities connection intact in matrimonial matters in different way. Considering wife & husband as a single soul, they have intrinsically distributed the Rights & Responsibilities among them. In this process, they have enacted and enforced many gender biased laws and has converted the institution of marriage into a biased Corporate where one spouse has been given only Rights without Responsibilities and the other spouse is burdened with only Responsibilities & Duties without any Rights for life.

 Do you think, this way the spirit of Indian Marriage can be kept alive?
