A huge metal container, in the shape of a tube is filled with humans as though it will transform into a black hole of Calcutta. Nobody is concerned at all that the container could burst at once if one more from the bustling crowd will try to enter into it. Entering this container is as if you are entering into the hell itself. But still we all descend into this hell smelling the sweat and the fart. The cacophonic sound of chattering and kids squealing will take over your mind, you will pray to god that please let this journey end as soon as it is possible. Yes, this is the scene of the Delhi metro during the peak hours and between all this mess, a girl possessed with the ultimate super powers tearing the crowd away comes to me and ask me for the seat with a very stern voice. After this she teaches me a lesson that it is a moral duty of a boy to offer his seat to a female passenger and I was standing there with my head bowed down as if I have a committed a monstrous crime.
A woman in India is the most powerful arsenal. A statement against you by them and it could create a havoc in your life. The women of India are being provided with the tools that would destruct anyone within days and these tools are tagged as the fundamental rights and the human rights. Indian women do not only have a set of fundamental rights, but ‘Indian women’s rights’ as well- a set of rules that are drafted for the ‘women empowerment’. The ‘women empowerment’ is such a sensitive topic in the developing countries that they could create a separate section totally dedicated to the law related to women’s development and safety.
“With great power comes great responsibilities” does not only applies to the superheroes, but also to the women. The Indian law has provided the fairer sex with the wondrous, beneficial laws and few of them which are most misused by them. Their vulnerability, their innocence, their ‘chastity’ always helps them to get away with it, as they masks their reality.
- Married women’s property act
- Dowry prohibition act
- Protection against Domestic violence
- Act against Sexual harassment at workplace
The seriousness of the above allegations can be measured by this only that the warrant issued in your name if the FIR is launched under these allegations are ‘Non-bailable’ and cognizable crime. That you could get arrested without even an arrest warrant. So don’t even try to show, that you know your rights before the police. And these mischievuos creatures do not even give a second thoughts when they make serious allegations of sexual harassment or fake rape cases.
The married creature (woman) is the most wild in all of them, the two most important acts Dowry prohibition act and Protection against Domestic violence are most violated and exploited acts by them. It is as if some ‘Baba’s Churna’ –“ your mother in law hates you and you hate your sister in law then have the Dowry prohibition act pressed against your in laws and get rid of them instantly” and “if your husband is not keeping you happy enough, he is not taking you to shopping regularly then show him the wrath of Protection against Domestic violence and you will be the most happy woman in the world”.
The women in India are worshipped as goddesses and they are seen as the purest form of life. They themselves brag a lot about being EQUAL to men in each and every field and try to compete too. But still they did not want to shed the avatar of ‘Abla Naari’ from themselves. The modern women of India are the most cunning and sly creature, they mold the atmosphere according to themselves. Not just the public transport at home, at offices, at government offices everywhere they are given special treatments and everybody knows why. Still, if you ask a woman that is she a weaker sex or not? She will be offended immediately and will also defend herself that ‘she can be equal to any man’ and on the next metro station you can see her fighting over the ‘women’s seat’ again. Well people this is equality and this is what a modern Indian women really seeks a stature of ‘Abla Naari + Empowered women’.
