Abusers don't walk around with labels, in fact, they are the most benevolent-looking characters on the face of the earth. So be aware!
Abusers don’t walk around with labels, in fact, they are the most benevolent-looking characters on the face of the earth.
This is exactly why many of us fail to believe children when they complain of a wrong touch or hug. These perpetrators encroach into the lives of children stealthily, either after gaining favour in the eyes of the parents or the child. They leave no opportunity to interact with the child, be it by guiding them through a project, teaching them a skill or just praising them.
Once the child completely trusts this person, he has easy access to the child’s body. But, once the child is aware of the abuse, she or he is so lost and sad to realise that their trust has been broken.
The aftermath of this harm is that children grow up into teenagers and then adults who are wary of anyone who tries to come close. So, homes and families can take certain precautionary measures to prevent this abuse:

Women in India enter into the institution of marriage not with any guarantee but just some faith, and any man who has a healthy and safe relationship with his wife would understand the gravity of the situation and welcome such a law.
Trigger Warning: This deals with rape, marital rape, and violence against women, and may be triggering for survivors.
The Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1983 has made a statutory provision in the face of Section.114 (A) of the Evidence Act, which states that if the victim girl says that she did no consent to the sexual intercourse, the Court shall presume that she did not consent.
Passive giving in is not consent. However, it is unclear why the above rule is not applied to cases in marriage where clear consent is not given by the wife.
The criticism for Gehraiyaan has irked many women, and given incels, moral policers, and envious trolls the opportunity to harass an actress who has finally played the most realistic character in her career.
I’m sorry that I’m late to the party. But I finally decided to write on why I think Deepika’s character in Gehraiyaan is actually one of her best chosen roles.
Disclaimer: Deepika is a tall, good looking actress, who I never really considered a phenomenal or decent actress. After noticing the hullabaloo around this film, I dared to watch it on Amazon Prime. To be frank, the movie offered me nothing interesting or new, and as someone who is both a movie and TV show buff, I didn’t even lift an eyebrow. However, if there was one thing that I found realistic in the film, it was Alisha’s character. No, this is not another review, but a character analysis of the female protagonist in this film. Honestly, this is one of the most real characters that I have seen this actress play.
A woman hailing from a middle- class family, trying to make ends meet, while her incompetent father and partner have failed to be financial heads of the family. They have failed to keep the family afloat, and Alisha’s character has no choice but to take on the responsibility.
