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.”
