Dear All

I have moved my all work on www.caprashant.in

please read that site for new posts.

I was reading a newspaper (sometime I really do) and surprised to see a news about suicides by husbands due to sec 498 (sec 498 is about case for demanding dowry from wife. In this husband and his family member were declared guilty without any proof and they were put behind the bars without any case first). The newspaper claimed that more than 65,000/- husbands commit suicide every year due to sec 498. This number is huge more than farmer’s suicide which is a hot issue in parliament but still no body is taking care of this.

NCRB (National Crime Record Bureau) published a report in which it is stated that 98% of cases u/s 498 found false. If it is true then to whom government wants to protect when women are misusing this section so abruptly? In every 3 minutes a case is filed u/s 498 and in every 8 minutes a husband is committed suicide.

Sec 498 was introduced to protect women from their in-laws abuses but as Indians work by emotions not by mind, this law gave full authority to women to do anything with their in-laws. According to sec 498 if a woman filed a FIR against her husband and other in-laws (whether they live with them or not) then police will arrest all of them and put them behind bars without a single proof. After this the husband and his family will fight in court for their bail and to prove that they are not guilty. Interesting point that in Indian law system if one part of the case is not coming in the court then there is infinite chances for them and other part will suffer till they come. So in practical when a woman filed a case after arrest of in-laws she doesn’t come to court and case is postponed till then husband and his family will be in jail without any abuse. After a long hearing if it is proved that husband and his family is not guilty then there is no punishment for woman.

These days emotional bounds are getting weaker and people don’t care about each other and temper of every person is high without any sense. People get angry and do the things for which they are sorry when anger comes down. This is a bitter truth so a single fight between husband and wife cause a case u/s 498. When husband is in jail without any cause then there is very little chance of compromise. Result a happy home destroyed. I believe this law is the main reason of broken families these days. Because the result of this case can never be reversed, because a innocent person can’t digest the punishment so husband never able to forget and after this wife is not able to compromise whatever she do after this. In India second marriage is still not popular people don’t believe in this. Once a person is divorced people treat him/her as a guilty.

I am not saying this section must be removed because dowry abuses are also true. I want to say that there must be below modifications in this law:

  1. Police must not arrest husband or his family without court order. Mere complaint by woman is not the evidence that she is victim.
  2. Only husband must be the liable and the case should be only in his name. Why his all relatives are part of this case even when they are living in other city?
  3. If the case found false then that woman must be punished. So that next person must think before filing a false case.

Family is the base of society if families are not longer exists our whole society structure will be destroyed. So law for families must not be so hard that effect of those can’t be reversed. Courts must try to compromise in these cases because many times people are in influence of advocates. But that doesn’t mean that guilty must not be punished, if husband is guilty for demanding dowry then he must be punished but not before he is found guilty. Main motive of Indian law an innocent must not be punished must be followed.

Abolish Dowry

498a-IPC

Dowry Laws Every Indian must know

Never tell a lie (Part 7)

Sthir was now worried because he knew that plan was not simple, whatever is happening is very much dangerous. It could be act of some enemy country to get hold on India by controlling small cities. He decided to check Priya’s home because there was no bad news about Priya or her family. This case was old so it could be possible that anything bad had been happened but report was not released in media. Sthir installed two cameras near Priya’s home and with previous experience he installed the camera little far away with x-ray vision.

It was really difficult to control all the things in one time. He understood saving the world work is really difficult and boring. He applied to hostel warden that his uncle has come in the city for some work and staying in a hotel. So he wants to stay with him for 2-3 days. Warden didn’t allow for 3 days but after many requests he allowed for one day only. It is better to have something than nothing. So Sthir was glad. But he was lucky this time. The same day he got some movement near her home. He was watching in cameras signal which were coming to his mobile. He saw that one person has trespass the outside wall and went inside. Sthir tried to see the face but that person had his face covered with a hood. The person went to the corner and started to climb on the pipe. Soon he was on second story where the glass of near window was opened. He entered inside home. Sthir was watching all this. X-ray vision was working properly. He could see that the intruder was going to first floor now. So the intruder knew that the window will be opened. Perhaps it is broken or it can be possible that someone inside home is with him. The intruder didn’t stop he went to ground floor. Now vision was getting confusing because by x-ray vision he could see all things so things of above two floors were making confusion with ground floor.

Sthir was thinking perhaps the thing which the intruder was searching on ground floor, but he was surprised when he opened a gate below stairs and went to basement. So this guy whoever he is knows everything about home. Someone has told him everything or he got the knowledge of everything from a person who lived in the home from years like Priya. A wild idea came in Sthir’s mind perhaps the person is extracting all knowledge from the victim’s mind and by this he or she can know everything about that person. So by this idea this person knows every single object or knowledge which Priya knows about home. That is why he can go so easily in the home without any problem.

He tried hard to concentrate on the intruder’s movements. It was difficult to say what he was doing in basement. But it was clear that he took something from an almirah or safe whatever it is. This time that person didn’t take the same route. He came to main gate and opened it. He came out from home from front door. Sthir got active. He put the mobile in his pocket and came near to gate. The intruder started to move in right side of home. Sthir was ready and he ran towards the intruder. The person was intelligent but he was not so fast and Sthir was two time fast than a normal person. He caught the person by his neck.

Now the person was surprised. He moved fast and his right kick caught Sthir on mouth. Sthir was not expecting so much speed from him because his previous movements were very slow but now he was fighting like an expert professional fighter. Sthir was not a normal guy now. He was stronger than any normal guy. He got ready and started to control that thief. But surprisingly the person was now stronger and fast and for more problems he was really aggressive like he doesn’t care about him. Sthir stopped two kicks by his both hands side by side and he didn’t know how or from where a kick came straight to his chest. He flew backward and crashed on the road. It is really painful when you hit a coal tar coated road with full force. The intruder was in hurry he didn’t wait Sthir to get up. He started to run. Sthir ran after him. Sthir was following the intruder now, on a sharp cut the intruder stopped suddenly and kicked backward. Sthir was in full force he tried to save the kick and move aside. But the force made him go forward. His hand grabbed the hood from the intruder’s face. His eyes were widened from shock. In the same time the intruder moved his knee to Sthir’s face and stars started to dance in front of Sthir’s eyes. He fell back covering his face with both hands. When he became normal, his head was giddy with pain and shock because when he removed the hood he found that the person was not he; he was a she; a girl. A girl who can’t be herself because the face he saw was the face of PRIYA.

Shaheen (Part 11)

After valentine she got jealousy from Shikha. She snatched Yash from her. Whenever she came in class she only looked that Yash and Shikha were talking. Everything else in class was nothing to her. Result of all this was shown in her mark sheet. She was just passed in 9th class. She was a brilliant student but now she was below average. Shaheen didn’t mind the result. For her, everything was vain except Yash.

When her father saw the result, he didn’t shout this time. He became silent. After two days he was late. All were worried because from shop Rahmaan always come to home about 10 p.m. but today it was 11.30 p.m. and still he was out of home. Armaan went to shop at 10.30 p.m. and it was closed. There was no news about late coming. Raima was so worried that she opened the door when knocked once without asking who is there. But fortunately it was Rahmaan. He was drunk. Smell of liquor was coming from his mouth. Liquor is forbidden for a muslim and Rahmaan always obeyed that but today he left the rule. Everyone was shocked, Raima asked angrily and got a slap in answer. All three children were awaked but after seeing their mother slapped no one tried to go near their father.

Rahmaan went to bed straight and fell down on bed. He was asleep but no other in home was sleeping. Rahmaan was talking in sleep he murmured about going down business and the debt he took for home. Once he said about low marks of Shaheen. Tears came in Shaheen’s eyes. She was feeling that that this was the main reason her father started to drink liquor. She was responsible for all this. No one in home said anything to her but she knew from heart that her lower marks broke her father’s heart. He was expecting much more from her. She was the only brilliant student in her home and her father was hoping that she will do something big one day. For this dream he was fighting with his relatives and religious person and spending everything on all children study, else in Muslim family a girls study is really difficult and unnecessary.

Shaheen decided that she will gain her father’s trust again. When school began she forgot about Yash and concentrated on her study only. All students were same. Tanya was still her best friend and Rahul was still looking at her from distance.

There was nothing special in 10th class except pressure of study. Because board exam were coming this year and your option of choosing career depends on results of these exams. Yash broke up with Shikha. Before this Shaheen was not talking to Shikha but now she wanted to know. Yes she decided to forget Yash but it is really difficult to forget your first crush. Even her father’s liquor habit for which she believed she is the reason didn’t stop her to know about this. She and Tanya met Shikha and started to talk. It is really easy for girls to talk because when someone is talking then being a girl you must talk back. Shikha told them that yash wanted to have sex with her and she refused before marriage. He tried everything to convince her but she didn’t agree because she knew after getting everything Yash will not care for her. This was shocking news. She was thinking that Yash was really good but his intentions were full of filth. Indian girls respects their culture and their culture tells that only a husband can sex with the girl they must not allow other person even to touch. With time culture is change now, touching is not a big thing these days because you are studying in co-ed schools and going to offices for job but still sexual relation except husband is really bad.

This news was spread like wildfire. Every girl in class started to hate yash. Whenever he tried to talk anyone that girl ignored him. Once one of the most popular guys in class, became most hated person in class. Even his most admirer girls Shaheen and Tanya refused to talk to him. Nobody told her that Indian girl can do anything for their love but can’t allow anyone to put a figure on their family tradition and culture. That’s why it is popular that a girl enlightens her family name, she is the light of her family values and her character is the mirror of her family character. She is the base for two families once from birth and other from marriage.
