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?

Jaane Bhi do Yaaron

I am a Gujju (often pronounced as Good Jew and may be that is why Hitler Spared me :-D) But, I am quite influenced by my Maharashtrian Neighbors and Collegues who have been God like during my depressing times. In Past 10 days, I have been at my lowest in eight months ever since I have been blogging. And it was getting too boring being down, so I decided to laugh it out somewhat.

I am representing the skit that I had written in my college, this time definitely remixed with 498a in it (then little did I know then that there is such a law and that I will be blogging it one day) I am sure all Maharashtrians will take it in the same spirits as my Colleagues and Neighbors who hold most of the surnames in the Society. This skit is limited to jokes with no intention of pulling down anyone. All characters here are fictitious and any resemblance to anyone living or dead has to be a sheer coincidence.

Once upon a time a Marathi Mulga (boy) named Abhay Wagh Fell in love with his class mate a Marathi Mulgi Kanta Waghmare. (Well some Maharashtrian surnames are also very unique, if translated it works out to some meaning. In this case Wagh means Tiger and Waghmare means Hunters of Tiger or also Tiger Killers.)

This story is post 1983, in the era of 498a misuse and dowry less urban marriages. Where the ingredients of a Hindu marriage are still the same, that is to say Husband, Wife, and husband’s joint family and the regular anticipations of the wife to stay away in a nuclear family and husbands unperturbed devotion to parents along with wife. But with Section 498a in the backdrop the story unfolds like this...

After some months of marriage, Wife nags and demands a nuclear family, Husband is sandwiched, tries to play the hero with a middle way out working out a win win for all the parties. But this hurts the ego of Wife and she goes away to her parent’s house.

Girl's Family, The Waghmares are now furious and they file a 498a on the family of Waghs on a friday evening, Kanta’s family became the Kaante for the Waghs. Abhay Wagh and his family members were caged, I mean arrested by the charges put by Waghmares u/s 498a and other accompanying charges of 406, and other charges that I would deliberately not mention. Abhay was full of bhay of being arrested again if the bail got rejected. But, They were released after some holocaust.

Now, the Wagh’s were busy quashing the charges on them. Their Lawyer Mr. Khare (Kahre means Right/True in Marathi) was giving a tough fight to the lawyer of the Whagmares- Mr. Khote (Wrong/False in Marathi) The case ran that was dragged to a knothole witness different tenure of the judges who changed from Mr. Khan to Mr.Walker to Mr. Khanwalker.

Abhay now comes across a movement call "Save Indian Family" that fights Elder Abuse and Misuse of family laws that is section 498a that lack the essence of Evidence Act. Abhay was counselled by the victim brothers of the same boat and he is now running “self-sponsored-Free-to-users” independent Helplines of the group. He attends the victims personally and also if required, then blog-fights on the net against those who call names to Save Indian Family like Shaming Indian Families etc. He hates the fact that people just do not give a fair chance to the innocent husbands family and benefit of doubt is to the cunning Wife's family by default.

Over the shoulder, This guy would have been settled with some difference here and there in life, if 498a was not prevailing in its current form. Would have excelled in his life as a man of family with his wife and children born to them.

But with the family broken morally, financially, stately rather ubiquitously, he is still finding it hard to settle down with the fact that his money, time and age all have gone in proving him and his family Innocent under the presumptuous law that holds one guilty till proven innocent, the law which is exempted from evidence act, the law that is justified by the documented stories of one side and does not accept the other side of documentation. The law arguably called as the liar’s law, the anti-dowry law and Section 498a.

Abhay Wagh, who always sang “Hum Honge Kamyaab ek din”, was once interviewed by one of the journalist who realized the whole scence and he though being optimistic did realize that his generation of people have lost it all. And he just said “Hum honge Kamyab? Ab Jaane bhi do yaaro (let it be), We are stranded, We could have been better off, But we are now fighting for the Elders and next generation"
Hum Honge Kamyab... Ek din,

When there is "doori" between the so-called "modernized" Indian wife and her husband, she uses 498a (anti-dowry law) thinking that it will help decrease the "doorie". What she does not realize is that 498a is not the "anti-doorie law", it is actually the anti-dowry law (that infact "increases the doorie"). The Supreme Court has already classed the misuse of 498a as "legal terrorism".

You can blame the misconceptions of the women misusing 498a on their brainwashing by radical feminists (with revolting minds and appearances) who have misunderstood the teachings of Marx and Engels (a wealthy man who was infatuated with Marx's wife and therefore against the notion of family and marriage).

These radical feminists groups (and their shagirds) who destroy families (and harm innocent elders, women and young children) are no different from the muslim terrorists organizations and their suicide bombers who misread the Koran.

The Naxalites are a million times better than these radical feminist influenced vindictive and greedy women because at least, the Naxalites do not purposely harm the innocent elders, women and children.

Bitter wives/ex-wives/daughter-in-laws want Khokas from the hysband/ex-husband/pils so they will use MCOCA, Boka, Dhoka, 498a, and whatever else they can use to get what they want. In the past, they used to wait until the husband (who was generally older than the wife) died.

Nowadays, since many husbands (being the same age as their wives) are living longer, some impatient/intolerant wives cannot wait that long to get hold of the husband's/his family's assets. Some try to take over all the husband's assets before his death by filing a false 498a case. Others push their husbands into committing suicide (nagging, threatening, turning the children against the father/paternal side of the family, filing false 498a cases, taunting him about what he earns or about his sexual abilities by comparing him to their ex-lover or current lover, etc.). If that does not work, a few wives kill their husbands by shooting/poisoning/stabbing/settingfire (and then obtain public/legal sympathy by claiming that the man was an abuser or that they were depressed). All their crimes are pre-meditated because they know that 90% of women are let off by the courts for felonies for which a man would definitely go to jail.

It seems that the Government and Judicial System has done an extensive research and found out that biologically and psychologically, women can't lie. Even if women want to lie, she can't, her own body, mind and soul does not allow. And that is why the Law has been formed in a way that when a woman gives a statement, the accused is guilty until proven innocent. All those who say that women too are liars, they must seek the Research report from the Government on their findings that Women are biologically not made to lie.

was this your college play, that too in mumbai. tell me which college?

As per you when you wrote this skit in college there was no 498 added to it then, so what was the play about, wife left husband and then what?

oh yes, the names of people sound funny!!!!!!!!

so basically the skit was:
scene 1: they got married.
scene 2: wife left husband
then what?

how did you manage to entertain the crowd for aleasttt 30 minutes min???

writing for the sake of writing sometimes does not work.

eeeeeks even auditions last longer!!

But like the others as thats what you crave for I shall also add an encouragement for you,ie good attempt in writing . hope you become a good writer one day. Do not give up hope.

About my college etc, I would give all the details once I come to know to whom am I talking. And that too not on the blog.

Since the original story content has nothing to do with this blog I did not mention about the actual skit.

I am writing and I was writing in college too. Now what you call for the sake of writing... well I said it was a remixed version and the original story was definately having a different context and end. The characters are same. Episode is different.

A true lover of Art would also be a connoissuer of understanding and appreciating experiments.

Rest of the things like 30 mins etc and your perpetual appreciation...well (I can strongly respond) but, jaane bhi do yaaro.

On your words like Craving etc, I do not want to comment on this, may be I would have been happy not to have your comment here like this. As it was personal.

I will keep up this job of blogging and would keep on improving as I do not claim to be perfect.

But, still I have no regrets as what I am doing (blogging) is anyday better than what I see those heart broken people of both the genders do in the name of debacle (mere excuse).

Anyway...I am commenting in general.

I too would hope and would not give up hope that one day I get comments from a good critic who know how to do that job better, by knowing how to give personal comments in a better way.

Good Attempt though, Keep it up.

Truce by default,
