The National Commission for Women – Candidness Personified

October 7, 2009

http://uchalla.wordpress.com/2009/10/06/the-national-commission-for-women–candidness-personified/

by Uma Challa

In May 2003, the National Commission for Women (NCW) felicitated one Ms. Nisha Sharma for canceling her own wedding, standing up against the evil of dowry and sending out a “loud and clear message to dowry seekers”, and Ms. Sharma became a role model for all women, overnight.  The truth, that her wedding was not cancelled due to additional demands for dowry, but because of Ms. Sharma’s pending issues with a former boyfriend, was quietly pushed under the carpet by the NCW.

In the same vein, in July 2007, a woman called Pooja Chauhan made false accusations of dowry harassment against her husband and mother-in-law, and paraded the streets of Rajkot semi-nude as a symbol of protest. The NCW was very prompt in reacting to the incident, ensured the arrest of the husband, mother-in-law, and neighbors too, for allegedly committing domestic violence against Ms. Chauhan. It did not take too long for the truth to come out and for the NCW spokesperson to put her foot in her mouth, and quickly cover up their faux pas.

In February 2009, NCW showed its characteristic promptness in ordering a probe into the “Mangalore pub incident” when a number of girls were allegedly molested by some goons in the middle of the night. The NCW and other women’s rights champions had a field-day harping about increasing atrocities on women.  When the investigation report filed by Karnataka Women’s Commission Chairperson, Nirmala Venkatesh, revealed certain inconvenient truths, the NCW found itself in the same usual “foot-in-its-mouth-situation”. This time the NCW rejected Ms. Venkatesh’s report, and fired her to save its own face.

On 5 October 2009, an airhostess approached the NCW with allegations of assault and molestation on a pilot and co-pilot of a plane on which she was a crew member. While counter allegations and witness statements quickly revealed that the story of the airhostess may just be another story like those mentioned above, the NCW habitually jumped into action, and instituted a panel for investigation into the issue, in less than 2.5 days after the incident. The two pilots have been fired even before the investigation could begin. Knowing NCW’s track record of rendering justice in such situations, does one have to really guess the outcome of this episode?

Never mind! The NCW is just doing its job of looking after protection and empowerment of women in a male-dominated society. After all, it should be okay to penalize a few innocent men to protect thousands of vulnerable women, right?

Oh! Wait a minute! Don’t jump to conclusions so soon!

Beginning year 2005, several elderly women, falsely accused under IPC Section 498A (for the only crime of mothering sons and getting the sons married) approached the NCW, seeking justice. These women have long heart-rending accounts of how they are being harassed by their daughters-in-law. The NCW’s short, yet prompt and candid response to these mothers was, “Your matter does not fall under the mandate of the Commission”.

Similarly, in June 2009, a 45 year old woman who was arrested on charges of dowry harassment was allegedly gang-raped in police custody, in Bhopal. The news, which was reported in leading newspapers, went completely unnoticed by the NCW. No panel, no probe, even 2.5 months after the incident. Surprised? No need to be. This is simply one more matter that does not fall under the mandate of NCW.

Indian women need to be very clear about their expectations from the NCW, when the NCW is so clear about its mandate. You should know by now that the NCW is literally working overtime for the cause of disgruntled, adulterous, parasitic and criminal-minded wives, girlfriends and female workers. How many more matters would you expect the NCW to include in its mandate?

Why are so many of you women surprised about NCW’s modi operandi? Beats me!

Batons to Counsel? CAW Cells Turn to Extortion Hells

August 27, 2009

“Arrey Sunita, kya baat hai, bahut udaas lag rahi ho, sab theek to hai?” asks a curious neighbour. “Kya kahun, tu to jaanti hai meri saas-sasur ke dahej ke lalach ko, main soch rahi hoon ki sab par mukadma daayar kar du. Par roj-roj court ke chakkar aur paise aur time ki barbaadi ko sochkar chup ho jaathi hoon,” replies Sunita. Chirps in the neighbour: “So go to Delhi Police’s Crime (Women) Cell at Nanakpura in West Moti Bagh for mediation.” A brief pause later, a cheerful Sunita tells the audience on FM Radio about mediation centres at Rohini, Karkadooma and Tis Hazari court complexes. 

So began a news item in Indian Express (link here). This is apparently in reference to the advertising blitz undertaken by Delhi Police to entice women to approach the Police to settle their matrimonial grievances.

So far, the standard procedure has been for the disgruntled woman to approach the police station and file a false 498a case. Of course, the police played the role of extortionists or their enablers even in these cases. However, with the recent activism of the Save Indian Family Foundation volunteers, the falsely accused citizens have started asserting their rights and the Police have been left with no option but to let the false 498a cases go forward in the courts. As most of these cases are false, the likelihood of conviction is practically nil and in many cases, the falsely accused citizens have exposed the perjury committed in the open courts by the complainants and filed counter charges to punish the false accusers. Even the courts are becoming exasperated with the sheer numbers of false cases and the trampling of civil liberties of innocent citizens in the name of women protection laws.

Now, the feminist mafia has turned its attention to the mediation mantra, so the extortion can be affected simply in the CAW cells without the need for filing FIRs and letting the cases go forward in the Courts.

Most sensible women know that involving Police in matrimonial disputes is a recipe for disaster for everyone concerned. The moment a woman enters a police station for petty marital grievances; her marriage is over for all practical purposes. In most cases, where a woman decides to enter the police station, she already made up her mind about terminating the marriage. Now, all she is looking for is the best bargain to get out of the matrimony. These women, who walk into police stations to complain against their husbands or in-laws, are often the abusers, the aggressors and the victimisers masquerading as victims. They have mastered the art of exploiting the gender card to their advantage in every situation.

Enter CAW cell. The so called mediators of CAW cells know the truth about these abusers. In fact, they are the enablers of these abusers. With their “batons” parked on the head of the husband, they start their mediation. Mediation is nothing but arriving at a bargaining price to avoid false charges and/or police brutality. What sort of mediation is this, carried out under the threat of Police Brutality? Can any settlement obtained under such a threat be termed a genuine and fair settlement?

The role of Police is to uphold law and order. When a crime is reported, their job is to investigate and bring charges against the accused to be tried in a court. If indeed a woman complained of harassment or domestic violence, the police’s job is to remove her from the threatening situation and put her in a safer shelter and then investigate her claims. Mediation in marital disputes should not be and cannot be in the charter of the police. This practice is illegal and illegitimate.

The threat of Police Brutality, often starting at the CAW cells, is the single biggest cause for the increasing numbers of suicides of married men in India. This detestable practice of mediating marital disputes in Police Stations must be deprecated, discouraged and discontinued. Batons must be used to maintain law and order and to prevent crime and terrorism; and not for blackmailing defenseless citizens. Batons and counseling are incompatible with each other, other than in the case of legalized extortion as is happening in these notorious CAW cells.

Men are urged to boycott these counseling sessions in the CAW cells. If indeed a crime is committed, let them file an FIR, let the matter be investigated by the police and tried by the courts. If woman’s life is in danger, let the police remove her from danger and place her in a safe shelter. CAW cells cannot be used to short circuit the constitutional protection of due process for the hapless men.

Gruesome Drivel, PN Benjamin and Deccan Herald

May 29, 2009

Recently, I was forwarded an article titled “Gruesome and escalating violence on women” by one Mr. P N Benjamin in Deccan Herald news paper.

Looking at the title, I could immediately discern it as feminist propaganda garbage. The opening statement read something like – “The recent chilling front page report of the police shielding the accused in a dowry case…”

I was “stuck” by this statement. I do not know which incident this P.N. Benjamin was referring to. But if any objective person looks at the reality on the ground, day in and day out, thousands upon thousands of innocent and defenseless citizens across the length and breadth of our country are being mercilessly arrested, incarcerated, presumed guilty and tormented for endless years based on mostly false complaints registered by disgruntled women.

Not surprised. This is the standard feminist fare – take some isolated case and peddle it as the mainstream, so as to intimidate the police, judiciary and politicians to tow the party line.

Then Benjamin goes on to write –

“One cannot help but be struck by the off-hand way in which generally a young woman’s life and death is summed up, matter-of-factly, without any undue cause for alarm or probing of the causes. It is as much as one would report a traffic accident or the death of a cancer patient — tragic certainly, but such things are to be expected.”

In India, at the present moment, a young married woman’s death is anything but un-sensational. Not a day goes by without one coming across a report of some married woman’s death somewhere “sensationally” repackaged as “dowry death”. It does not matter what the true cause of the death is. In the first instant, the entire family of the husband is rounded up and incarcerated. Then, to the eternal shame of our country’s civic credential, these defenseless citizens are presumed guilty as charged and made to fight the deep-pocketed and corrupt prosecution in the courts run by equally corrupt judiciary.  By the time the case is resolved, reams of journalistic garbage would have been written; thousands of rupees of the public monies would have been spent; scores of lives would have been ruined; and quite possibly some innocent persons may even have been jailed, particularly if they were indigent and could not afford the best defense money could buy.

When such a ruckus is created in the society upon the death of a young married woman, how could this charlatan of Benjamin make a claim that young woman’s life and death are paid no attention by the society? Obviously, this is a falsehood. What, then, is the reality that this self-proclaimed champion of women’s rights is trying to obscure?

Let me illustrate by replacing one word in his statement (“man” for “woman”) which then would read as follows – “One cannot help but be struck by the off-hand way in which generally a young man’s life and death is summed up, matter-of-factly, without any undue cause for alarm or probing of the causes. It is as much as one would report a traffic accident or the death of a cancer patient — tragic certainly, but such things are to be expected.”

How true! Now, the sentence makes sense; and that is the reality this charlatan is trying to obscure. Every year, 56000 married males end their lives unable to withstand the pressures of domestic violence, social hostility, lack of support and unreasonable expectations placed on their shoulders by the society. The tragic deaths of Pushkar Singhs, Syed Mukdooms are neither sexy enough for the mainstream media,  nor sensational enough for the state prosecutors nor sad enough to move the heartless judiciary. These human beings who were sacrificed at the altar of feminist fraud are the true faceless statistic.

As I read further through this piece of garbage, I could not help but notice this whole rant revolved around the D word (Dowry).  How is it that years after noted and pioneering woman’s rights activist Ms Madhu Purnima Kishwar adequately exposed the politics around dowry (link here), the sundry practitioners of pussy politics like the author of this drivel getting away with converting every woman’s issue into that of Dowry harassment? That too, in the mainstream media!

Could it be that the feminist machinery is feeling the heat as more and more mainstream media and civil society are coming forward to expose the “dowry harassment” blackmail racket? Quite possibly!

Coming back to PN Benjamin, is this pseudo-intellectual dunce really interested in the women’s welfare? If indeed he was, why was there no mention of the plethora of real and more serious problems faced by women in our country? Issues like –

–          deaths in childbirth

–          access to education

–          access to healthcare

–          extreme poverty

–          human trafficking

–          forced prostitution

–          forced marriages

–          extravagant marriages

–          child marriages

No! None of the above serious issues are of major concern for our Private Benjamin. And indeed, none of the above issues are of major concern for most of the loud mouthed feminists of our country. In fact, the bulk of the cases of use (or abuse) of the legislation (dowry related and DV legislation) has been by the middle class women of our country. As a segment, the middle class women of our country would hardly ever face any of the problems mentioned above. They, as a group, are in the best circumstance with regards to education, access to healthcare, and financial security. Disgruntled and brainwashed women from this segment constitute the best foot soldiers for the pursuit of feminist agenda. It is no wonder then that all legislation is targeted to this segment, so that more and more of them misuse the provisions of the legislation and wreak havoc on the society. And do that while playing victim, because they have the wherewithal to execute this scheme properly.

Where do the “Benjamins” of the media fit in the grand feminist scheme? They are nothing but bots strategically placed in mainstream media by the feminist political machinery to poison the public opinion. These dummies have the language skills, but lack the intelligence and honesty required to analyze the intricacies of socio-economic-political issues of our complex society.  However, that doesn’t seem to matter much. They still are making handsome careers peddling garbage, as our Private Benjamin has done in this article.

Terms of Debate

August 20, 2008

While the debate is still raging on the fairness of existing illegitimate laws like PWDVA, taxpayer funded NCW in cahoots with the foreign-funded Lawyers Collective, is busy churning out more and more such legislation. Often the family rights and men’s rights activists are sucked into arguments with the feminist liars and their supporters regarding these illegitimate laws.

 

One constant refrain one hears from the supporters of these laws is, that there is nothing wrong with the laws per se, but their implementation is wrong. We must not allow this reasoning to become mainstream argument in our debates. This is the most dangerous red herring. If poor implementation of illegitimate laws in itself is resulting in so many victims, imagine what a properly implemented illegitimate law would result in – definitely orders of magnitude more victims.

 

These laws (e.g. PWDVA) are WRONG – plain and simple. They are drafted with malicious intentions. They fail the test of fairness in any dimension you measure them in. They are discriminatory. They are based on lies, propaganda and anachronistic assumptions. They deny due process to the accused. They are based on summary penalties and confiscation. No matter how they are implemented, they will result in injustice. In summary, these laws are indefensible.

 

Therefore, in our debates, we should never deviate from the main argument, that these laws are wrong and that they are poorly drafted with ample scope for misuse, extortion and blackmail. Point after point, we must show them the different loopholes intentionally left in these laws. We must show that the supporters of such terrible and unjust laws do not believe in human rights, in liberty and dignity of the individual, in constitutional protections, in fairness and in due process. We must counter them with the truth. We must counter them with the statistics. That is the way to expose them. That is the way to alter the terms of the debate.

Legal Terrorism and Illegitimate Legislation

August 12, 2008

In recent years, the number of abusers of women protection legislation for personal gain or to settle scores has gone up substantially. Concomitantly, the numbers of false cases, the incidents of malfeasance, illegal detentions, police and judicial corruption as well as the backlog of unresolved cases have also skyrocketed. The trend shows no signs of waning. What makes this process so easy and convenient for the criminally minded individuals, families and state officials? The answer lies in the active state support and participation in this nefarious scheme of “legal terrorism”. While this state participation is occurring at the expense of the well-being of ordinary, law abiding citizens who have not violated any laws, the parasitic elements of the society like unethical lawyers, fund chasing and morally bankrupt feminists, lowly judiciary and corrupt police officials are immensely benefiting from this pernicious practice.

– What is the root cause for the proliferation of state sponsored legal terrorism in our country?

– Would the state sponsored legal terrorism cast its shadow in ever more areas of our public and private lives?

– Should the citizens be resigned to this state of affairs?

– What is the prognosis for the future?

In this article, I will attempt to address some of the concerns raised above.

Root Cause of Legal Terrorism is Illegitimate Legislation

The root cause of the state sponsored legal terrorism is the existence and passage of illegitimate legislation in our legal regime. Most reasonable and objective persons can quickly tell right from wrong and fair from unfair.  Thus most reasonable and objective people can also tell apart a legitimate law from an illegitimate one.

There can be several bases on which one can conclude a certain legislation to be illegitimate. However, most illegitimate legislation is identified by the following five characteristics –

Discriminatory

According the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “all are equal before the law, and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law”. Any laws that are explicitly or implicitly discriminatory are illegitimate. Any demagogue would be tempted to play vote bank politics and pass discriminatory legislation that can rob the non-vocal minority off its legitimate protections that are hallmarks of any civilized society. In most civilized countries, constitution places limits on the illegitimate laws passed by the demagogues. For example, in the United States, any discriminatory legislation could be shot down by the Supreme Court of the US as unconstitutional if challenged. Such protections do not appear to exist in India. At least, the Supreme Court has not displayed the courage to declare discriminatory legislation as unconstitutional. Most of the ostensibly women protection laws in our country (like PWDVA, adultery laws, alimony laws) are discriminatory and thus illegitimate.

Presumption of guilt

As the jurisprudence evolved over the centuries, it has become an universally accepted maxim that an accused person is innocent until proven guilty. It is always the responsibility of the accuser to prove the guilt. In modern India, this maxim has been subverted thoroughly. In the name of special protections, the accusers have been given free pass to accuse any person at their fancy. The state, in turn, has assumed the proxy role to prosecute the accused at the taxpayer’s expense while placing the burden of proving innocence on individual citizen. This is a monumental distortion of principles of justice. Any legislation that presumes the accused as guilty until proven innocent is illegitimate. The best examples are ipc304B and ipc498A.

Summary action

Legislation that allows summary action by the judges or other officials is also illegitimate. Summary action may include confiscation, imprisonment or other penalties. Watch out summary provisions in any legislation to declare it as an illegitimate legislation. PWDVA is the best example.

Multiple laws to confer the same benefit

Many a time, in spite of the existence of legal provisions addressing certain benefits under law, new laws are passed conferring the same benefit. This results in unscrupulous elements filing multiple cases under these differing legal provisions for the same benefit, thereby flooding the court system with frivolous and vexatious litigation. The best example of this practice is the alimony and maintenance laws like 125 Cr PC, Section 24 of HMA and PWDVA.

Based on anachronistic assumptions

Society is constantly changing and evolving. Legislation passed hundreds of years ago under colonial rule may not have any relevance in the modern times. Such legislation must be scrapped and replaced with modern legislation that reflects the realities of the current state of our country and its citizens. If you come across shrill voices opposing changes to anachronistic legislation, please understand that is an illegitimate legislation still existing in our law books. It is time to agitate for changing such illegitimate anachronistic legislation. The best examples are the alimony and adultery laws in India wherein women are perpetually assumed to be victims even when they are the perpetrators.

 The Real Victims

Who are the real victims of this legal terrorism?

Any unsuspecting individual who is compelled to defend oneself against charges under any illegitimate law automatically becomes a victim of that law. Law is a coercive state instrument. Inherent fairness is a fundamental pre-requisite for the citizens to have faith in the law. When the law fails the test of fairness, individuals charged under that law become victims of state sponsored legal terrorism. In those circumstances, the guilt or innocence of the individual becomes irrelevant. Do not inquire into the guilt or innocence of the individual when that individual is on the receiving end of illegitimate laws. Extend compassion and support to them unconditionally.

Strategies to counter Legal Terrorism and Illegitimate Legislation

Reposing faith in democratic institutions to counteract the evil consequences of illegitimate legislation may not always produce results. In fact, democracy uncurbed by the constitutional limits, as is the case in present India, will always result in the passage of illegitimate legislation to safeguard the interests of vocal sections of the population. Further, corruption also plays a major role in the passage and preservation of such legislation. Once the vested interests become entrenched, the ordinary citizens become powerless in the face of massive state power and state sponsored legal terrorism.

Are we, the ordinary citizens, helpless against this state sponsored travesty? Or are there any ways in which we can counter this?

Here I am outlining some strategies that can be employed collectively by the civil society to counter this menace.

Counsel the victims

This is by far the most important strategy. When an individual is pitted against the massive state machinery, the morale of the individual takes a massive beating. In many cases, the victims of legal terrorism, overwhelmed by the odds of fighting the corrupt state machinery out to persecute them, end their lives. When such demoralized individuals come in contact with other victims, their feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness tend to be alleviated substantially. The mere act of listening to their sad plight gives them courage and strength to fight back against the injustice. Besides, the victims can learn from each other and support each other in various other ways. In fact, the common suffering will prove to be a strong bond that will result in lasting friendships. I implore all the victims reading this article to become counselors. (See above on “The Real Victims”)

Show contempt

As Mahatma Gandhi said, cooperating with evil is worse than the evil itself. The illegitimate legislation must be held in utmost contempt it rightly deserves. Just because it was passed by the parliament, it does not become legitimate if it has failed the test of fairness as discussed above. Pay particular attention to the shrill voices of vested interests that defend the illegitimate legislation.  Check on their backgrounds and understand how these vested interests stand to benefit from the existence of the illegitimate laws. Argue with them and expose them at every opportunity.

Spread awareness

Another related strategy is spreading awareness in the society about the existence of these illegitimate laws. Most of the victims of legal terrorism are caught unawares when a barrage of criminal and civil cases hits them like bolt of lightning from the blue skies. Until it happens to them, most citizens are blissfully ignorant of such laws. In fact, one of the main secrets of the propagators of illegitimate legislation is obfuscation. These propagators deliberately hide the most pernicious provisions they included in these laws in most open debates. As soon as the heat is turned up in any debate, they slip back in to platitudes and lies. The best example of this deception is “Karan Thapar vs Renuka Chaudhary” debate in which Renuka Chaudhary fell back to her rhetorical lies like “every minute a woman is burned for dowry” or something on those lines, when sustained questioning by Karan made her squirm.  One of the best weapons to fight the illegitimate laws and legal terrorism is spreading awareness. Internet will play a significant role in spreading awareness about illegitimate legislation.

Social boycott and ostracism

Finally, the most potent weapon to counter legal terrorism is the social boycott and ostracism of its perpetrators. Most relationships and transactions in our traditional society are carried out based on trust and reputation of the families. No sane person would like to enter into any marital relationship with a family who ruthlessly used the illegitimate legislation to unleash legal terrorism on another family.  Exposing the truth about the perpetrators of legal terrorism will be enough to caution other families that plan to enter into any kind of relationship with them.

Prognosis for the future

The strategies outlined above will prove to be the philosophical underpinnings for the resistance movements that will proliferate across the country to counter the menace of legal terrorism. Save Indian Family Foundation is the best example of such social resistance movement that is employing the above strategies successfully to counter the evil consequences of illegitimate women protection legislation in India.

 

 

Sonia Un-Gandhi’s Stratagem

February 22, 2008

Sonia Gandhi, UPA chairperson, congress supremo and the de-facto ruler of India, has issued not so subtle a suggestion [sic] to Chidambaram, the finance minister – dispense generously the tax-payer funded largesse to the radical feminist outfits and to their agendas. To couch her radical agenda in palatable terms, she threw in the words “common man” and “farmers”, both of whose lives have become immensely intolerable under her rule in spite of the phenomenal 8-9% growth rates India has achieved.

What is the record of Sonia led UPA Government in keeping social harmony in the country? Having exhausted other bankrupt vote bank ideas, they have latched onto the last frontier in divide and rule stratagem – of dividing the basic, fundamental building block of our ancient society – the family. By importing the thoroughly disgraced western, extremist, radical feminist ideologies, the Sonia led UPA Government has embarked on a destructive trajectory to rob our traditional society of its dignity and peace.

The existence of IPC Sec 498a in our law books in its present form cannot be justified under any norms of dispensation of justice. Adding insult to the injury, the Sonia led UPA Government have introduced yet another family decimating, poorly drafted legislation in the form of PWDVA. Time and again, the judiciary witnessing the patent abuse of the legal process, breeding unchecked corruption in its wake, has appealed to the government to amend these laws. The accused citizens are rendered defenseless against the massive Government machinery out to persecute them. Summary arrests are the norm. Many documented instances have come to light wherein this draconian legal provision has been unleashed to settle personal scores and as weapons of extortion.

The statistics speak for the national shame that is perpetrated under the guise of women protection laws under the Congress regime. In the last four years under the Congress rule, more than 90,000 WOMEN were arrested and sent to custody for no apparent violation of law. The number of suicides by males in every age group studied outnumbered the number of suicides by females in those respective age groups. Nearly twice as many married men in the prime of their youth, committed suicide compared to married women in the years 2004 and 2005. Most of these suicides are directly attributable to the misuse of poorly drafted “women protection laws” which are amenable to misuse and corruption.

To further their objectives of dividing the peaceable population on the basis of gender, the Sonia led UPA Government has co-opted the services of the radical feminist organizations of the country like Councial of Social Research and Lawyers Collective. They act as the mouthpieces for the massive, Gobbelian propaganda denigrating whole sections of Indian society as greedy bride burners; and portraying all women in India to be helpless victims of male violence.

There are several laws in our books which were made nearly two hundred years ago by our colonial rulers. For example, take the adultery law. When adultery is committed by a married woman, the man party to the adultery is treated as criminal and not the woman. Many women have successfully used this provision to blackmail vulnerable men. Sonia led UPA Government pretends ignorance of abuse of these and other anachronistic laws. Sonia led UPA Government and their cohorts at NCW, like Girija Vyas perpetuate the myth that women are victims always – even when a woman abuses the laws to deliberately inflict maximum harm on other women and children.

Utilizing the massive Government machinery and tax-payer funds, Sonia led UPA Government is engaged in brainwashing women living in tranquil family settings to believe they are victims. They are encouraged to unleash legal terrorism against their husbands and in-laws, for any perceived or petty grievance. Once the family gets entangled in the corrupt criminal justice system, there is no chance of any reconciliation or restoration of family life. Many women have fallen victim to this propaganda and broken their families.

Family is the basic building block of any society, but it is much more than that in the case of traditional and ancient society like the Indian. Family provides the social security across generations. Sonia led UPA Govt feels no compunctions in destroying that basic building block on the same lines as has been accomplished in the west. As long as their coffers are filled with vote banks, nothing else matters to them.

All thinking individuals must ponder these – Does India have the infrastructure and wealth to put in place the social security that is destroyed when a misplaced legislation like PWDVA or ipc498a precipitates in the destruction of our time tested family system? Should we allow an alien cultural invader like Sonia Gandhi to tread roughshod over our way of life by destroying our culture and supplanting it with an alien non-culture?

Requiem to Pushkar Singh

February 11, 2008

Oh Pushkar, tender son of the mother
Heir to the father and the forefather
Born on the banks of the holy river
A confluence of ancient wisdom and culture

Alas! You entered into a deathly union
An error in judgment
Not for the raging hormone
But the ancestral responsibility
With a devilish whore and her pimp –
The corrupt criminal injustice system!
 
To break your spirits
And to yield to their extortion
They locked you up for four long months
In the dark dungeons of despair
Depriving you of fair play and justice
While they broke your spirits
They could not destroy your soul
And it departed the earth intact
A life cut down in less than three tens of a year
Now shines from the heavens
In its infinite whiteness!

The naked, marauding pigs
Of radical feminism
Renuka Vyas, Girija Chaudhary
Ranjana Jaising, Indira Kumari
And all the sundry feminist coterie
Wearing nefarious designs
Up their sleeves
Rummaging through
The nook and corner
Of our holy land
Stand exposed in stark contrast
In the bright light of your sacrifice!

While your memory lives on
Imparting an inspiration
To the young of our country
It is certain from this day counting
The end of radical feminism is nigh
And numbered are the days
Of its fanatic proponents
However mighty and high!!

Boycott Renuka Chowdhry’s Round-Table

November 15, 2007

I recently came across this news item “Men’s meet to save women” in The Telegraph that Renuka Chowdhry, the prime practitioner of pussy politics in India,  is planning a round-table involving men’s groups to tackle the Domestic Violence against women. I should say “bemusement” was my reaction.

Questions that are raised in one’s mind, reading the news item are – Since when did she realize that men needed to be consulted? What was her reasoning in mentioning bloggers in connection with that consultation? Has the political mileage to be gained from the practice of crass pussy politics run its course? Is the backlash against over-playing of gender card gaining momentum, both on the ground and in cyber world? Is the emergence of organized men’s groups having a political impact affecting her chances of re-election?

Renuka Chowdhry, who is also well-known by the epithet –“Griha VinaSini” and who uttered these famous words – “it is men’s turn to suffer” – was at it again, even while acknowledging that men needed to be consulted in making laws that affect family relationships and tranquility.  Here was her leading question – “I want to know what provokes men to beat up their wives?”

Wah! Now any idiot of male gender who would attend her round-table should have already accepted her premise – men beat up their wives.  And then what consultation is she talking about?

Should any men’s groups attend that round-table? The answer, in my opinion, is a resounding “No”. For one thing – here should be the response from the most pre-eminent men’s group in India – the Save Indian Family Foundation – a collective yawn; or perhaps a collective middle finger.
