Society isn't yet ready to accept that even in a 'happy and successful' marriage, there could be a person suffering from mental trauma and domestic abuse.
Society isn’t yet ready to accept that even in a ‘happy and successful’ marriage, there could be a person suffering from mental trauma and domestic abuse.
Abuse can be either physical or mental; can be by parents, elders, spouse, or anyone.
In our society, abuse is taken seriously only when it is physical. The things which they can see. But what about the mental pressure that a person suffers?
Same goes with the concept of marriage.
If husband doesn’t utter ‘bad words’, doesn’t hit, doesn’t threaten by increasing his voice, then what else can women expect in a happy marriage, right?!
But what about the fear that is in her heart that if she gets late to reach home from office, she may get punished by her husband through having forced intimate relations? What about fear in her heart that drives her to wake up early in morning no matter what, and many more fears that a society can’t see.
Domestic violence refers to violent or abusive acts committed by one family or household member against another, such as child abuse, or spousal abuse.
Domestic violence can refer to physical harm, or behavior that is controlling, coercive, or threatening.
It can occur in any kind of intimate relationship — married or unmarried, straight or gay, living together, or simply dating.
But in a marital relationship, where everything looks so ‘normal and happy’ to the society, they are not even ready to accept that behind that ‘happy and successful’ marriage, there is a person who may be suffering from mental trauma and domestic abuse.
Some abuses don’t leave any scars or marks, but affects the mind of a normal person to such level that the person becomes frustrated in that relation. Such abuses are very common as every second women suffers from it. It may be from husband or may be from in laws.
Such a thing is very well shown in recent series- Criminal Justice – behind closed doors. Women does all the things to keep relation survive, and then also her husband can’t trust on her and keeps eye on everything she does. He keeps on raping her, makes her feel like she is nothing without him, he doesn’t need her but she needs him.
Our law needs to consider mental, emotional and social abuse seriously. Marital rapes still are not considered as punishable because of which men keeps on taking advantage and women can’t do anything. Stop taking marriage as license to get close without consent. Stop taking marriage a license to suppress women in every possible manner. Just STOP!

I wanted to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting 'win' moments.
My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
It's well known how diplomatic and professional Priyanka Chopra is. Why would she want to stir the hornet’s nest when everyone’s happy in their personal space?
Priyanka Chopra (PC) did something completely out of character. She’s usually known for being articulate and mostly diplomatic, unless she wants to give sassy comebacks to people who try to put her on the spot or ‘in her place’.
She’s someone who’s never fought the establishment because she understands you can’t win against it anyway. But you can work around it to get your way to the top. She’s a thorough professional and team player.
For someone like Priyanka Chopra who’s never played victim so far, to admit being the scapegoat of petty politics in the Hindi film industry was refreshing. It’s good to see this unfiltered, vulnerable side of her for a change. PC revealed one of her reasons for shifting to Hollywood on the podcast, Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard.
