Like Every Coin Has Two Sides..

Mumbai, 27th December, 2014:

      Note: By writing the following blog post neither am I being biased towards anyone, nor am I on a mission to support men in their wrong doings. I’m just here to inform the others about the trending issue of cruelty that is being committed towards men in the society these days, since women are misusing those laws enacted for them.

I’M WRITING THE FOLLOWING POST SINCE IN THE PAST FEW DAYS, I MYSELF AS AN INTERN ATTENDING TRIALS IN THE HONORABLE COURT, AND WORKING THERE HAVE ENCOUNTERED CASES WHEREIN WOMEN ARE REGISTERING FALSE CASES OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, WHEREIN THE HUSBAND HAS HAD TO SUFFER TERRIBLY, I’LL BE CITING THOSE CASES FURTHER. NAMES OF THE ACCUSED WILL BE CHANGED, WITH RESPECT TO PRIVACY OF THE SAME.

With the dynamic change in the social structure, the thinking and awareness of people change. A steady change has been seen in today’s life in the mind of elites about  opposite move of cruel treatment in family sphere where husbands are ill treated by their wives and the relatives of wives. The judiciary in it’s experience and cataloging of judgement has also been sensitized to issues and facts of the cruel treatment by wives to their husbands with single action and/or with help of paternal relatives.

   “WHILE MAKING SPECIAL LAWS FOR WOMEN, THE LEGISLATORS MUST THINK OF VICTIMIZED SECT OF SOCIETY IN MALE LINE”

In India and elsewhere in the world, there are no special laws for males. There is Dowry Prohibition Act, section 498A in IPC ( Indian Penal Code ) i.e. offense of cruelty by husband and relatives of husband and many many more acts to support women. The cry of victimized husbands and their relatives is not heard by the society nor the courts. The practice says that the real purpose of the women-related specify laws are mis-used and thereby their husbands suffer for no fault of theirs.

Since I’m interning with a very well-known criminal justice lawyer, I’ve witnessed cases myself of DV ( Domestic Violence), wherein wives are falsely accusing husbands of mental and physical torture, and by studying the cases I’ve been deeply shaken. In one of the cases, the wife has eloped her husbands house along with their 7 year old daughter, without informing anyone. She has done so since, she wants to have the 2 flats that belong to her husband. In that process, she has defamed her husband, tried to break through the door. Evidences prove that she is falsely accusing her husband, of cruelty. There are text messages to prove that, she has warned him either to hand her over the 2 flats or else she along with her family would slap a law suit for dowry. and also domestic violence. That becomes far easier, because in cases of harassment or domestic violence no police investigation is done.The husband earns a meager amount of rs.8,000 per month and still has to pay for all the legal proceedings. He isn’t allowed to meet his own daughter, his daughter is being kept in the dark, not given food and water since days together, nor has she been send to school by her own mother. such is the condition. 2 more cases of the same nature have been witnessed by me.

Not that I’m saying all cases which have been registered for harassment or violence by husbands to wives are false in nature. 80% of them are very much true, but surely 20% are false also at the same time. This is one issue which hasn’t received proper acclamation till date. Agreed, that violence against women is far more than we imagine, but on the other hand also men are suffering due to torture, cruelty. Certain laws need to be enacted in order to curb the cases of false allegations by women. It not only defames the social image of the accused but also ruins him psychological as well as mentally. Is basically is quite a bit disheartening, my heart aches of the accused still, because looking at evidences from both sides it’s definitely clear as to whose at fault and whose not. The Men rights movement in India is associated with various men rights organizations. They demand gender neutral laws and repeal of laws that they consider anti-men. Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF) has claimed that the suicide rate of married men is almost twice that of women, due to them being “unable to withstand verbal, emotional, economic and physical abuse” from their wives.SIFF has pointed to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data to show that suicide in married men is much higher than in married women.

The Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code which deals with cruelty to a wife states that:

Whoever, being the husband or the relative of the husband of a woman, subjects such woman to cruelty shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine.

For the purposes of this section, “cruelty” means:
(a) any wilful conduct which is of such a nature as is likely to drive the woman to commit suicide or to cause grave injury or danger to life, limb or health (whether mental or physical) of the woman; or
(b) harassment of the woman where such harassment is with a view to coercing her or any person related to her to meet any unlawful demand for any property or valuable security or is on account of failure by her or any person related to her to meet such demand.

[[

The Section 498a of the Indian Penal Code:

Allows the police to arrest the persons mentioned in the complaint without a warrant or without any investigation.The crime is non-bailable, so chances of getting a bail are low and husbands usually lose their jobs. There is no provision of withdrawing a complaint in case of a reconciliation.

According to Ram Prakash Chugh, about 87% of the women in Tihar jail are there due to dowry charges. He has claimed that sometimes mothers of the bride bring dowry charges on their in-laws when the bride fails to adjust to her in-laws.[2Organisations like All India Mother-in-Law Protection Forum (AIMPF) and Mothers And Sisters of Husbands Against Abuse of Law (MASHAAL) have been formed to represent such women. According to Sunil Gupta, a spokesperson for Tihar Jail, there 280 in-laws in the prison accused of dowry harassment and most of them are women. The women are held in a separate section of the prison, which has been nicknamed Saas-Nanand (mother-in-law and sister-in-law) barrack.

According to SIFF, these laws don’t follow conventional legal premises where a person is innocent until proven guilty. It has also pointed out that several of those who are arrested under this law are women themselves, i.e., female relatives of husbands.According to Swarup Sarkar, spokesman of SIF, men with low incomes are rarely targeted and most victims of misuse are well-off.Former justice of Delhi High Court Shiv Narayan Dhingra has admitted that this law is being used by women to harass their husbands and in-laws. He has opined that parents should not go through with a marriage if dowry is being demanded of them. According to Ponappa, a Men’s Rights activist from Mysore, and Kumar Jahgirdar, president of the Children’s Rights Initiative for Shared Parenting (CRISP), a non-governmental organization, a married man commits suicide every nine minutes in India due to the alleged misuse of Section 498a of the Indian Penal Code against them.

[[

   So my prayer is,

Laws should be enacted for men too. I understand that most of my posts have been women-oriented, but this is an issue which needs to be looked up to since it’s slipping out of hand now. Moreover by witnessing such aches, my heart further aches. Such laws should be enacted as to protect their rights too in certain matters and issues.

2. Put the award logo on your blog.
3. Answer the ten questions they’ve set you.
4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Nominate ten people.

So, here are her questions for me, and my answers that are to follow.;

  1. Have you ever had a moment where you doubted yourself, and why?

Ans. Most people may not have given a correct answer to this one, a diplomatic answer would have been given. But, I believe in embracing my flaws, my regrets. So, yes! I’ve had several moments wherein I’ve doubted myself, doubted my caliber. It was since maybe the atmosphere within wasn’t that great to be in, or the pressure to excel, to prove myself was way too much. Too much for me to handle as a sixteen year old. But now, with experiences I’ve learnt to deal with situations that require me to show valor, and confidence in myself. And today I can surely, doubtlessly say that I’m on the right path, doing the right thing and not once in the last year or even now have I had to doubt myself.

2. Have you ever had a moment where you were completely confident in yourself, and why?

Ans.the-quickest-way-to-acquire-self-confidence-s-to-do-exactly-what-you-are-afraid-to-do-confidence-quote I’ve had several moments wherein I was utmost confident of myself and the thing I had in my mind to do. One of them being me choosing law as my prospective career. Since the very beginning, as early as grade 8th I knew that I wanted to pursue law and that I’ll become a successful solicitor one day, by God’s grace. That was one of the few things about which I was, and proudly am very confident about. Another thing I was completely confident about was in blogging. And my actions are speaking far beyond words for my blogging journey, Isn’t it? 😉

3. Would you rather be remembered for what you can do or who you are, and why?

Ans. I think a balance of both are necessary. Honestly, Who one is, is their identity and what one can do is their ability. And they’re two very different things. Actions always speak louder than words and yes, that’s my life motto forever. So what one can do is a different story all-together till one actually does it.

4. Which do you fear, failing a million times or never attempting at all?

Ans.       1095110_413131588803640_669598132_n1  Surely fear not attempting at all. In my opinion, failing isn’t what general people perceive it as, It’s actually;

F.  FIRST

A.  ATTEMPT

I.   IN

L.  LEARNING.

5. Are you doing what you believe in, or settling for what you are doing?  How do you know?

Ans. images Why settle for anything less than what you deserve? Don’t let anyone define you, make your own definition. I’ve never believed in settling for anything less than what I deserve. I’ve believed in doing justice, raising voices against the wrong doings and spreading wide-spread awareness about it, Which I’m very much doing too. I know it because I’m pursuing things that will make me successful. Taking a very quick example, I’m writing on burning issues, actively participating in legal events and lots and lots more to know that I’m doing what I always believed in doing.

6. How do you stay uplifted during the hard times in life?  What’s your motivation?

Ans. My motivation is my mother. She’s my first God. She’s gone through the worse of times and never complained, and I’ve never even gone through half a percent of that, then what am I to complain about? Whenever I’m facing hard times, I think that everyone is going through something that has changed them for the better or the worse, so I ain’t the only one suffering out here. After all, when the night is darkest, dawn is not far, right? Then too my mom remains my best motivation.

7. What is that ONE thing you would change in the world, and why?

Ans. There are way too many things which I would want to change in the world. But what remains on my priority list is, Racism against women, especially in India. What do you’ll even thing women are? It’s absolutely disgusting how men think they’re all the way superior to women in every walk of life, because practically they just aren’t. Rape, they think raping a women is cool, yeah? It is? They say the girls clothes instigated them to rape? Now, we may murder some and say their stupidity instigated us to take such a drastic step out of nowhere.

8. What is that ONE thing that motivates you to love, and why?

Ans. -LOVE-love-36983825-1680-1050One thing which motivates me to love? There are lacks of people , millions of them who crave for love. We can all do our bit to spread love, spread smiles, spread humanity. Be thankful that you’re loved, and let others be thankful to you for the same.

9. What is something you know you do differently than most people?

Ans. What I do differently from other people is adopt a totally different attitude towards people. Most of the people I know, do not respect someone who seems inferior to them. But, I guess I can do my bit by making them feel at par, having a word or two with them, showing a sweet gesture towards them is all which is needed to make them feel happy and be different than most people.

10. What makes you, YOU?

Ans. My approach makes me, me. I guess the question is answered in answer number nine.

Following are my nominees :

When Your Life Hangs In The Balance.

Mumbai, 11th December 2014.

Even before I begin with this rather heated topic, I’d like to clearly state that over here by presenting the following post to you’ll I’m under no circumstances being unfair to any medical professional or rather the medical fraternity as a whole. I’m by means of the post which is to follow trying to generate awareness about such practices which are getting highly prevalent in modern developed, under-developed as well as undeveloped countries. My intention here is not to blame all the medical professionals but a percent of them due to which people are losing trust in doctors. Over here I’m to tell about that strata of the medical fraternity who take patients as their business, my intention is not to hurt the emotions of people who are connected to the medical background but to get people aware of what I, myself have witnessed as cases of sheer medical negligence. I’m sure the medical fraternity is working wonders for people, apart from that one percent who are making it worse.

corecontent_wordle

How could I ever forget the frightful night of 9th December, 2014. I had finished my semester exams that afternoon, and had been resting all day later finally breathing a sense of relief. My phone rang and read “Seema Gandhi”, who happens to be my neighbor and a close friend in need, I was appalled, never had she called me at that point of time in the night, provided it wasn’t an emergency. I picked up and to my dismay she was wailing and weeping rather badly, I asked her what the matter was.. She told me, ” Hardii… Kevin’s father has got a massive heart attack, and we’re in **** nursing home, Please you’ll come here..” and the disconnected the call. It came as a shock because that day itself her husband had returned from his business tour, had been for an outing with their toddler and upon returning this happened. Nevertheless we rushed to nursing home, it was upsetting seeing her mourning for her husband because they had a five year old baby boy, she being just 32, but from a very rural and undeveloped village of India, her husband, being the only earning member is about 50 years of age. she can not speak or understand general English, and had been tensed since there was no future of their baby without her husband.

Upon asking the nurse as to where the doctor was, she began by saying that, “Doctor will be coming in the next 20 minutes”, again shocked as we were, because there had to be a doctor on duty, the patient needed immediate medical assistance, he could’ve suffered badly had it not been the doctor of Seven Hills Hospital Mumbai. Upon asking the doctor at the nursing home as to how the patient was now, the Doctor replied that he was critical and had to spent at least four days out there, we felt something fishy, also Since it was a small nursing home with no better facilities at availability, we decided to shift him to another hospital which though far, had a good reputation at its honor.Upon knowing that we have called an ambulance along with a doctor from Seven Hills Hospital, the doctor at the nursing home had a different story to offer all together. He said, “Why did you’ll call another doctor? I mean we can discharge him by tomorrow, he’s all good and in a good state now.” It was something extremely weird, the doctor was changing colors all too soon. In about 20 minutes an ambulance from Seven Hills arrived and the doctor rushed inside to check the patient. He then had a heated argument with the doctor of the nursing home because he had not provided any treatment yet. A patient who just got a massive heart attack had not been treated since the past hour. The doctor didn’t seem to have a logical explanation as to why had the right treatment not been given. Without wasting much of time, we shifted to Seven Hills, at about 1:00 in the night. Quick action was taken over there, doctors were ready, the patient was treated by Dr. Madhusudan Yemel, nurses were all very supportive, and within an hour the right treatment had been given, with minimal charges.

Now, by stating the above case which I’ve witnessed with my own eyes, I’m meaning to convey the message of medical negligence or medical malpractice. “Medical malpractice is professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community and causes injury or death to the patient, with most cases involving medical error.”

images

Now, I think my title is very much justified, The patient’s life surely does hang in the balance, We’re dependent on the doctor’s to save our respective lives and some of them are proving us wrong. In India, lacks and lacks of such cases take place every year, wherein the patient dies either because the doctor wasn’t available at the hospital or because he’s prescribed a wrong medication or many many more such reasons to be counted. Sometimes it happens also due to negligence of nurses. To cite my own case, when my mother had been pregnant, there were some complications and hence some injection had to be given to her, amount of which was to be 0.1, the nurse in negligence gave it as 1.0. As a result, my mother went into coma, only waking up after seven hours. I hope everyone understands how dangerous it is for someone to slip into coma. Something like this cannot be taken for granted, I totally understand that humans make mistakes but this was more. These days doctors are doing it as a business, of earning more money, wherein if the patient would stay in the hospital for more days, and hence it being profitable to the hospitals and fellow nursing homes. Hospitals and nursing homes are now signing contracts wherein it’s a deal between the doctor and them that if the doctor gets a patient he gets X amount of money, if the doctor is successful in keeping the patient for more than 2 days, he gets Y amount of money. Like, what was that? They think it’s something good? hell no. Many people are aware of this racket but few have the guts to stand up against this. Why? why are people this weak ? when it comes to gossiping about what a certain person went through and what wrong had been practiced with that person, everyone takes an active part, but when asked to take action against such malpractices no one is at hand.

My uncle who owns a recognized laboratory, was discussing with me that now on a trend has taken over, that being of the labs providing reports to patients of whatever the doctor says. Simply amazing.! I’m happy that at least there are various laws in India against such crimes.  Fortunately, doctors, nurses, and hospitals make mistakes in a small number of cases. But within that small minority of cases, certain types of errors crop up more often than others.

medical-malpractice-in-the-united-states_518c8d64223ce_w450_h300.png

There are many different ways you or someone you know can be seriously injured as a result of medical malpractice. The following are several examples of the ways an individual can die or be seriously injured due to medical malpractice:

  • Bacterial infections
  • Birth injury
  • Chiropractic malpractice
  • Dental malpractice
  • Diagnosis error
  • Dental malpractice
  • Emergency room errors
  • Elder abuse / nursing home neglect
  • Gastric bypass errors
  • Medication errors
  • Nursing negligence
  • Pharmacy errors
  • Surgical malpractice
  • Wrongful death.

With the awareness in the society and the people in general gathering consciousness about their rights, measures for damages in tort, civil suits and criminal proceedings are on the augment. Not only civil suits are filed, the accessibility of a medium for grievance redress under the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 (CPA), having jurisdiction to hear complaints against medical professionals for deficiency in service, has given rise to a large number of complaints against doctors, being filed by the persons feeling aggrieved. The criminal complaints are being filed against doctors alleging commission of offenses punishable under Sec. 304A or Sections 336/337/338 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860 (IPC) alleging rashness or negligence on the part of the doctors resulting in loss of life or injury of varying degree to the patient. This has given rise to a situation of great distrust and fear among the medical profession and a legal assurance, ensuring protection from unnecessary and arbitrary complaints, is the need of the hour. The liability of medical professionals must be clearly demarcated so that they can perform their benevolent duties without any fear of legal sword. At the same time, justice must be done to the victims of medical negligence and a punitive sting must be adopted in deserving cases. This is more so when the most sacrosanct right to life or personal liberty is at stake.

A medical practitioner cannot be held liable simply because things went wrong from mischance or misadventure or through an error of judgment in choosing one reasonable course of treatment in preference of another. A medical practitioner would be liable only where his conduct fell below that of the standards of a reasonably competent practitioner in his field. At least three weighty considerations can be pointed out which any forum trying the issue of medical negligence in any jurisdiction must keep in mind. These are: (i) that legal and disciplinary procedures should be properly founded on firm, moral and scientific grounds; (ii) that patients will be better served if the real causes of harm are properly identified and appropriately acted upon; and (iii) that many incidents involve a contribution from more than one person, and the tendency is to blame the last identifiable element in the chain of causation the person holding the ‘smoking gun’. Thus, to establish a medical negligence, the above mentioned position must be kept in mind.

Don’t fall prey to such professionals who are hungry simply for money, know to practice your rights, at the right time and in the best possible manner.
