Gender inequality is so rampant even in our court verdicts - will this situation ever change? What can we, as women, do to deal with all this?
Gender inequality is so rampant even in our court verdicts – will this situation ever change? What can we, as women, do to deal with all this?
My thoughts go to the recent Supreme Court verdict that had made news in social media.
I am just repeating below the statement of court below in case some of you don’t know yet.
I was surprised to hear this verdict even in this era where we all combat for egalitarianism and social justice. Are our value systems really progressing or deteriorating? Not a sign of constructive change in our social ethos.
Of course it is the duty of wife to look after her husband’s parents also and she should not create any resentment in the mind of husband against his parents which is right way. But that doesn’t end the obligation to take care of her parents too. Why this partiality for two genders?.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
