Is Modi's promise of decriminalising politics , mere lip service or word of a Gentleman? “People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war or before an election” said Otto Von Bismarck. In 2014 election campaign, Narendra Modi made an explicit promise that if he became the PM, “ No accused (with criminal charges) will dare to fight polls. Who says this cleansing is not possible?” Mr Modi has delivered enough and more lectures on the issue of eliminating political crime BUT one is bound to be suspicious when his actions do not match his words and the same was seen in the appointment of Keshav Prasad Maurya ( facing about a dozen criminal charges) as the president of BJP in UP. ‘Politics' is often called a 'dirty game' where there are no permanent friends/enemies, only permanent interests. Way back in June 2002, the political watchdog (election commission), on the direction of Supreme Court, issued an order that each candidate must submit an affidavit regarding the information on his/her criminal antecedents. But interestingly , at an ‘all-party meeting' reps of 21 political parties decided that the said order should not be allowed to be implemented, clearly upholding the Gospel truth ‘birds of a feather flock together' . Coming back to Mr Modi’s promise, in a recent report, Additional Solicitor General has said that recommendations of the ECI and the law commission, favouring lifetime disqualification of politicians with criminal cases against them, was under ‘ active consideration’ by the Centre. Also, the Centre has agreed to special courts to deal with cases against MPs and MLAs. With these special courts, an end is in sight to the inordinate delay in prosecuting politicians who have been sitting pretty in their positions for far too long. It’s time for the near and dear ones of such politicians (with criminal background/cases) to brace up and not die of shock like Lalu's sister who couldn’t bear the shock of his 3& 1/2 years jail sentence in a fodder scam case.
A 2 days old baby girl is flushed down the toilet by her own parents. A man in UP hangs up his wife, beats her, makes a video of the same and sends to her parents for demanding dowry. A daughter is denied a share in her father's self acquired property. A girl is raped. Such incidents and even more gruesome crimes are committed against the women in our country but why is it that rapes get more attention as compared to other forms of crimes like female infanticide, acid attacks, sexual harassment/exploitation, dowry deaths, cheating, murder, wife battering, maltreatment at home, honour killings? Is it because'sex sells' even in crimes? The rape crisis is just one facet of the multitude of problems that reflect the gender discrimination scenario in our country which are seen right through'womb to tomb'. It's quite interesting to see how in the wake of brutal rapes and murders, the whole country takes a 'holier- than- thou' stand, passes quick judgements on the accused, without analysing their own conduct and contribution in crimes against women. Popular media is rife with news of rapes which appear to be the most rampant and high profile of all the crimes against women. This hype in the media compels us to believe that rapes are on a dramatic rise. However, studies have shown that rapes have, more or less, followed a flat trend while the most dramatic rise has been seen in number of cases registered under cruelty by husband and his relatives. Cruelty by husband and his relatives, domestic violence and dowry related crimes account for more than half of the crimes against women. However, these are not considered worthy of our attention since the very powerful media is busy covering certain brutal and violent incidents having political undertones. India is traditionally a male dominated society where masculinity is about men acting tough, freely exercising their privilege to lay down the rules in personal relationships and above all, controlling women by making them limited and obedient to perform different functions of daily life. There are many laws but 'brutalisation of women 'seems to be on the rise and becoming too broad. Thousands of girls are becoming victims of this evil on a daily basis, which reduces their self respect, dignity and status, thereby hindering the social, economical, political and cultural progress of our country. Male dominated societal norms, economic dependence, overall lower status of women further exacerbates these crimes . Politicians are only as good as the people. Beastial masculinity and inefficiency of judicial and political system is a daunting challenge. We as a society need to modify our mindset regarding women and get our act together to accept them as human beings with equal rights, deserving equal respect and status. There is an urgent need for stricter laws, faster convictions, larger representation of women in judiciary and law enforcement. However, these are also symptomatic measures. Our society needs deeper surgery and extensive treatment, starting at home and continuing through years of schooling and beyond, which is undoubtedly a generational effort which must be collectively made by HRD and law ministry. As the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, we should let these incidents be the trigger which forces our society to take this first step. Let's start now.

Are PRENUPTIAL AGREEMENTS just around the corner? With an alarming increase in divorce queries and cases, the youngsters planning to tie the knot must consider PRENUPTIAL agreement before taking their vows to safeguard themselves . Marriage in India is considered sanctimonious but there’s no harm in seeing it in a practical manner where both the parties know where they stand in the shadows cast by marital breakdown.Prenuptial agreements can help in avoiding acrimonious battles in the courtroom and will definitely save the courts' time. If prenup agreements are made diligently, both the parties can benefit without any bitterness. PRENUPTIAL agreements are currently not recognised in India but a few couples have attempted it by entering into an agreement under Indian Contracts Act . However, the same have not been upheld in the Courts. The ministry of women and child wants to make prenuptial contracts legal and some serious discussions were carried out in 2015 but the progress on this front is slow. However, slow progress is anytime better than no progress. As and when laws are made on prenuptial agreements in India, it must be ensured that these are gender neutral. Also, family wealth should be kept out of any settlement/agreement clause and only the wealth which is created during the period of marriage (common property of the couple) should be liable to be shared/ divided. Not only the material issues, even other issues like maintenance, child custody etc can also be addressed in the prenuptial agreements.

Adultery Law Biased Against Men A serving Brigadier of the Indian Army found guilty of committing adultery has been awarded 3 years RI and will also be cashiered from service while the consenting woman, who was an equal partner in the affair, got off Scot free. This recent incident once again raises the question , ' why is Sec 497 IPC biased against men?'What happened to to 'Gender Equality'? Wonder why no noise has been made by feminists who leave no opportunity and fight tooth and nail for 'equality' in status, rights and opportunities. A large number of groups, working in pursuit of gender equality, are mute on this issue where the man(adulterer) faces harsh and criminal punishment while the woman (adulteress) gets away without any punishment of equal nature and is rather shown as a victim. On 7Dec2017, the Supreme Court has agreed to re-examine the 157 yrs old law on adultery u/s 497 IPC which punishes men only. Sec 497 states ' whoever has sexual intercourse with a person who is and whom he knows or has reason to believe to be the wife of another man, without the consent or connivance of that man, such sexual intercourse not amounting to the offence of rape, is guilty of the offence of adultery, and shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to 5 years, or with fine, or with both. In such case the wife shall not be punishable as an abettor.' The Supreme Court bench has said that 'Prima Facie, , sec 497 IPC grants relief to the woman (wife) by treating her as a victim'. But how/why is it that when adultery is committed by two consenting adults, one( male) is liable for criminal offence but the other (woman) is absolved?When a complaint is received from a man or woman that their spouse is involved in adultery, both the parties should be liable for equal consequences. Ordinarily, the criminal law proceeds on gender neutrality but it is missing in Sec 497 IPC which clearly discriminates against men and violates Article 14, 15 and 21 of our Constitution. The Supreme Court has issued notice to the Centre, seeking it's response in 4 weeks. It will be interesting to watch how and when the feminists will come out with their slogans and banners , demanding gender equality u/s 497 IPC also, which on the first view , is archaic and tantamounts to subordination of a woman when the Constitution confers equal status.
