Women go to the police with a complaint (may be false), but the system provides to record that as a criminal complaint and that data adds in to the National Statistics of Crime Against Women. When male goes with a genuine complaint the police at max can record a Non Cognizable offence against the women. That will never reflect in the statistics. Then how will one guage crime against men? Every 100 Suicides in India have 63 Males and 37 Females. Every 100 male suicides have 45 married males, and every 100 women suicides have 25 married Women. Married women suicides have default arrests of the inlaws under presumed dowry death. Married men suicides entitle wife for a 50% share in property. What kind of equality is this?

498a Lagaan

This is a story, Once upon a time, Inspite of males as best chef, designer etc etc still they got to hear that women are ruling everywhere by virtue of their adverse branding, that was not a problem for males as they love to be humbled down in front of the wives. But the law was not recognizing the status of male. They all approached the Emperor to give some solution.

Now what can be done? So all the boys decided that we should beat the girls in one such sport where their chances of winning are just impossible and then they will be free once the husbands and wives decided to play cricket match and the result will decide the superior sex. As winning in tailoring or cooking has not worked with the superiority status. The Emperor too decided that a cricket match should be conducted between the genders and then let the winning team be called supreme. The loosing team will have to compensate the winners in some or the other fashion. The boys said "Sau kode manzoor hai Sarkaar, magar hum ladenge."

The day soon came. Now there was this toss and the female captain was asked to call. She said tails and before the toss could be called the male captain said “Halt! Ladies First so let them decide what they want” The lady captain after some ego display decided to bowl first.

Batting First:
The guys were quite optimist to bat first as the psychological pressure is on the chasing team, the first over started. Being a daily practice the guys started playing effectively the strokes and kept on scoring runs over after over. It was 40 runs at the end of the 3 overs with on loss of wickets. The girls were feeling the heat and suddenly a new rule book was sent the umpire. Passed by the board of New Cricketing Women Committee.

On the first delivery the guy just played the ball. But what did he see? All the girls shouted in appeal and up went the finger of the umpire. Now what was that? The dismissal was declared Plum BBW Bat Before Wicket. (Had there been no bat the stumps would have been bowled.) So the guys were 40 for the loss of 1 wicket. The umpire shrugged and said its in the new books. The batsman showed displeasure while walking away. He was fined later.

Second wicket felt in the similar way in the very next ball. The guys were shocked and now the lady bowler was on a hatrick. And the 3rd man in anticipation to avoid the BBW rule raised the bat and the bowl kissed the stumps to the ground. 40/3 in 4.3 overs. The rest 3 bowls were missing the stumps and hence were dot bowls straight in the hands of the wicket keeper. The girls were calling names and bullying (thanks to the new rule) where the guys were helpless as they knew they could be charged.

3 overs passed by, the wickets kept on falling, with the BBW rule no runs scored and 3rd umpires were not consulted for runouts and stumpings. The score was now 40/8 and suddenly the new coming batsman decided to hit and he could manage a fulltoss for a six and then three runs thus reaching the score to 49-8 one short of fifty. The crowd started cheering, with some lady members joined too.

Further, the batsman was provoked by the bowling team as “Namard” and asked him to wear bangles and was told that if he had guts he should remove the helmet and Bat. The batsman got provoked and accepted the challenge; he roared towards the girl and commanded her to bowl. She did so and bowled a super bodyline bowl that hit the boy on his head, injuring him and paralyzing him at that moment to continue. He was declared retired hurt and the next batsman did not dare to come to the ground as he went underground.

The scored stayed where it was. And the target of 50 was to be scored in 10 overs match. The guys were depressed but not hopeless as they too were optimistic about the BBW rule and no 3rd umpire rule. But they were in for surprise.

The girls went with optimism as they knew that the Emperors law is by their side and definitely not with the boys. The guys were in for a shock as they saw the crease box was doubled in its length and the running between the wickets was reduced accordingly for the girls (never mind) but there was another shock just one stump for them as a wicket. Adding the tension for claiming wickets as LBW BBW and even bold. But they wanted to win.

The 1st bowl was straight line and length and plum BBW and an appeal. The umpire said that the “Rule is only applicable when boys are batting against girls” and the guys almost fainted with this one sided rule.

The girls went on to score runs with these facilities. But they were greedy and hence they tried taking a quick single and there the single stump was uprooted running them out. The boys celebrated and the girl started to cry as tears rolled. But the umpire consulted the 3rd umpire and though the evidence was clear still they declared it as “not out”. As the perpetual benefit of doubt prevailed and it was said that the throw was faster than the running speed and hence sympathy could not be ruled. And it was said in such cases “Camera captures are not sufficient to prove.” The boys who formed a huddle in anticipation of a positive decision from the 3rd Umpire were ignominously defamed as "Gays" by the batting team supporters.

Another appeal for LBW was ruled out as the boys appealed but the counter appeal of the girl was sustained as she felt mentally tortured with the roar of the boys. The score inching higher to 20 for no loss at the end of 3 overs.

Another delivery where the girl was totally beaten by the delivery sparked controversy. Her ego got hurt, She said “my father never bowled like this, you have hurt me, this is violence, this is abuse” There was an enquiry panel who charged the boy with charges without trial along with the wicket keeper and slips fielders who too participated in causing mental torture according-to-the-girl batting. They were called off the field and arrested and suddenly the scene on the ground went haywire. There were a group of Nuisance Causing Women who came with dholak and started to shout along with some men supporting them. The ones who tried to intervene from the boys' side were also summoned by the New Cricketing Women Committee.

Looking at this, the clouds started to cry and poured rain. The play was called off, most of them arrested under non-bailable offence and were termed as criminals by the state with a non compoundable offence.

Some how with the left over 4 players from the boys's side in the field the play continued but then 'Duckworth Lewis' was applied post rain and the result was declaring the match in favor of girls. Thus proving an empowerment of them.

The women supporters to men were attacked by the bowling team supporters by calling names, alleging and linking sisters wrongly with the team members for having relation thus embarrassing them. Moreover such supporters were disguised in the uniform that supported the boys’ team. The BBW hatrick girl was declared the women of the match as her participation was immense in all departments including name calling and filing charges along with crying.

In the presentation ceremony only the girls’ victorious team was present the rest were arrested. The girls were given the accolades and also 50% of the boys match share. The boys were accordingly fined. They had to pay the Lagaan forever as 50% of the match share to the girls every time they played.

Similar is a case of the guys who are involved in divorce, who get 498a-ed or threatened, penalised as alimony (by the law and in-laws) for no good reasons to justify something like BBW or Duckworth Lewis Formula or the other reasons mentioned.

Clean Bowled,

Jinesh Zaveri.

Once agina appele to all :-
"It is the time all IIT ,IIM ,IT Engineers along with well established Industry People , Media , Jurnalist , Social activist and women support orginasation , have to decide how you support to such LAV and KUSH and give them the right direction so that they should not became a Modern Ravans in future in our Society !!!!! "

There is no force to accept or reject any thing ,time will give the answer , because terrorism can not give us the freedom,history wittness , and the same way the women empowerment can not be achieved by grabing husband money ,property and through them out of thier own house along with his family members by "legal terrorism ".

Women means mother , sister and daughter also , not only wife .

In any relationship ,the creation of domestic violence both a husband and wife are equally responsible , so the punishment should be equal to both , till the time our LAW maker dont understand this , the Crime against women will only increse , it will never decerease !! The statistics of crime against women clearly shows , after introducing 498A in 1983 , how the innocent people harrased as the realcriminal can not get the punishment , court is with full of false case , as a results the convict rate in 498A is only 2 % .
Would you belive out of 100 case 98 case filed for earning only money by dishonest way ?? I dont belive , but this the truth ,498a ,DV act made for Blackmailling ,dishonesty way to earn the money .. that all , there is no intention to do any favour to our Indian women . This to make thier life miserable , as our LAW maker want to create a huge Domestic Violence in our Society and kill the Institution of marriage , a huge Single parenting system , huge homeless child , huge adultry relationship ... a lot more....

Dear Another Women,

If it were a gay thing then why we would have been behind women?

Rather we would have chased men like the guys in your lobby are doing it by chasing us. And feeling depressed that we are not giving them the attention and that all attention is towards the opposite gender.

Chill, don't be such a despo like those guys who are starving for us.

I think we should start giving out titles and awards from time to time for the best piece of literature written on 498A. This is THE BEST one I have read so far. Ignore all Bharat Maatas and other spoilsports who cannot appreciate a beautiful piece of writing. Satire is hard to write and when you're successful you send the hardest hitting message. You'll probably attract a lot more whiners in the future. The more whining you hear, the more it is proof that YOU ROCK.

THIS is not someone from my group.Ooops. My group people are not famous for using such cringeworthy grammar and neither do they make spell mistakes. We have PRE-SELECTED representatives who comment on blogs when required.OUr representatives when comment dont make a fool out of themselves with poor language selection, which these days is very apparent from other blogs your gay brothers have visited!!

( Ignore all Bharat Maatas and other spoilsports who cannot appreciate a beautiful piece of writing.)

Ya please ignore us. Why is that when your'll have something to say to us, your brother gays are the first ones to forward that to our groups??

Whosoever is making comments using my group name , atleast turn on your spell-check option.

Dear Anonymous,

Yes, it seems to be very desperate attempt by whom so ever it is.

I would request both the parties to calm down and esp would ask anonymous if i should delete those comments with your group name.

I somehow do not delete the comments but It would be fair to delete the comment (if you wish and permit) to avoid sparking a debate on something irrelavent.

You may respond me personally too. We are fighting our battles which may not be congruent at the ends but leads to the common problem and that is corruption. And victimisation of innocents.

It is all so unfortunate.

I would genuinely prefer truce.

Thanks Jinesh, really . Yes we all are fighting our own battles and lets do it sportingly.

I admire your effort in saying so "I would genuinely prefer truce."

I would only like say to all dont use any group name or fabricate identities when you are not a member of it with the intention to prove a point or belittle it. Rather go for the anonymous option.

Jinesh, the fact you atleast agreed it was a "desperate move" is more than enough and speaks volumes about your honesty & ethics.

Thanks for seconding the initiation,

I would request you to take back those words like Gay etc whenever you are comfortable to talk about it. You know we are put in such a chronic mental state after rejection despite our honesty and ethics that such words would lead us to adverse effects especially when we have families in our group. And I am sure you were venting your frustration like us and hence your intentions were not vindictive. Nevertheless we are fighting with high satvik spirits.

I would have no harsh feelings as I realise that in anger a person gets desperate and quite un-self. There are better battles to be fought. And we would be priviledged to fight it together if possible or atleast without harming anyone and staying away from obstructing.

We believe in Win:Win, You may write to me personally as discussing on the blog is slightly difficult. You may prefer to be anon with a different mail ID but sure we can settle our differences in a humanly manner.

Please continue to participate and visit our blogs.

Ok I take back the GAY word(only off you) and I hope I as a woman on behalf of many victimed women, I have showed my fine team spirit and have set an example of ethics too.

No I cannot write to you as our paths are poles apart and therefore we cannot touch base on any common ground--execpt for this one unique instance because it was about the sanctity of my group as it was misrepresented by some cunning coward who freely voiced an opinion.

btw it is relevant that people dont use any other group names or IDs with the intention to deride it .
Let each stand and speak the dictim of their own group exclusively.

Thanks for the setting it right and most impt cooperating.

Oh I thought you were a guy.

Anyway, we do have victimised women in our group too who could recognise the difference between the bad men v/s good. The ones who have been having a bad marriage.

Your groups name misrepresented was an unfortunate incedent which I initially felt was done deliberately by one your group member. I still do not know who is that.

As the same thing happened with SIF group too where not only the groups name but also the members' names were badly defamed by some cunning coward, now I am not sure if that was by a male or female.

I was optimistic to stop the name calling between the 2 groups but for that the cunning cowards should come out and talk about why is the mud slinging going till that personal levels of linking and something worse that is mass mailing done in the name of SIF.

Anyway I do not want to aggrevate the topic and close on an optimistic note. If solutions are desired then they are achieved. Stubbonness reminds of a dry old tree where as the tree with fruits are always bowing towards the earth and that bowing itself signifies the greatness.

I hope my group is not featured in mass mails with such an unsensible content. I hope that person is reading our conversation.

Paths pole apart and all... I really do not feel convinced but I am happy with all the positive contents in your gestures and would like to forget the negative vibes.

Thanks for this conversation,
Kindest Regards.

This lagaan ends on a note which stands as a true example of wat is happening in todays country of ours.The laws are pampering the ladies who wish to corrupt the system of marriage in india, be it of any religion or sect.The laws are in fact are ruining the indian family system not just by handling the groom's side but by also ruining the children's future.They are not doing any good to the society as a whole,instead more harm is being done.

Are you kidding? How on earth can some one put you in jail with out
doing any crime? Law is not so blind to put you in jail with out even
investigating the truth.... these where the words I initially told to
friend of mine who came to me crying and telling about how her
innocent family where cheated and harassed by her newly married
brother's wife.

I could not believe it is true that there is a law called IPC498a
under which police have to arrest anyone named even by a mad/mentally
retarded wife (wife gone wild) irrespective of investigating the
truth. Now, their entire family's future is under the mercy of this
mad wife's parents in exchange of huge lump sum. This is nothing more
than a legal rowdyism and rape. How on earth can anyone support this?
Is this not human violation? Can you keep quite if your unmarried
sister, aged parents and bed driven grand parents where jailed
innocently? Can you even imagine how they treat you while you are in

Your coment :-

"Can you keep quite if your unmarried sister, aged parents and bed driven grand parents where jailed innocently?"

- If you have those realtionhsip or belive and meanning of those words , definetely can not keep quite ,


- You will find a lot of yahoo groups , blog ,media jurnalist , women orginasations along with NCW , who justify to keep quite .
- They justify to keep quite , as a lot of women harrased in village , so you should keep quite and send your age old paretns behind the bar with out any investigation , to support them , as they can not punish the actual criminal .

Will those yahoo group moderator and blog owner come out and honestly say :-
They have any knowledge about the word "Women " means waht ?

Why NCW does not protect the Indian Women ??

Why they are biased only towards a daughter in law /wife , irrespective she is right or wrong ?

Not only that , they also never ever allowed the public to put their honest veiws , as they never ever learn to accept the truth , they always show one sided story , and start deleting the comment , which are not supporting their views , but this is the real advantages of internate , that they can not hide the truth too long , as a result when some one search 498A in internate , we find only misuse !!

You have to keep quite , if you want to save your age old parents and sister .

Jinish keep up and very soon all criminal will be exposed , let it be a blog owner or yahoo group , who belives in terrorist activity .

I suprised ,why they don't even respect the judgement of Supreme court also !!!

Shame to those dirty , money minded people who use the word " Women " to fulfill thier own business.

Stop this business of daughter in India .
