(0 Votes)
Written by CRISP Admin   

Invitation for 8th May 09 Press Meet.

I About Crisp:

Child Rights Initiative for shared parenting (CRISP) is NGO based from Bangalore with over 1000 active members throughout the country and abroad .Our NGO is the first of its sort dealing in problems relating to children when their parents are involved in children's custody disputes in view of an ongoing/over divorce battle. CRISP believes in the concept of shared parenting i.e., wherein the child should have access to its natural parents, the father and the mother in the best interest of the child when both the parents are otherwise not disqualified. We take pride in the fact that National Commission for protection of child rights (NCPR) a Govt of India undertaking recently has appreciated our initiative on child welfare and significance of love and care of both the parents in a child's life.

II   Major Children Issues:

In our society unfortunately 2 out of 5 marriages are ending up in divorce more so in the metros and the educated classes of the society especially the upper middle class and affluent class.  CRISP receives various complaints in matters related to parental alienation including that of NRI's pertaining to parental abduction of children.  We are presenting to our media friends a typical case of an unfortunate father Dr. V. Ravi Chandran a world renowned scientist who is deprived of the care and custody of his son Master Aditya aged about 6 years, from more than 670 days. Please also refer for further details. Since more than 21 months the father doesn't even know the whereabouts and the welfare of the child and obviously this great scientist and wonderful father is in a lot of distress due to the uncertainty of his loving child.

Dear Viji:

How are you doing? How is Aditya? Hope both are well. We both must stop what we are doing for the sake of Aditya. I will stop all legal and public proceedings against you. I request that you stop running from place to place so I can see Aditya. This is an earnest appeal to you. Consider the life of Aditya without both parents. Not a good prospect. As mature adults we should stop this petty fighting and think about Aditya's future. You moving around all over India or me continuing all these cases against you will not work for Aditya's welfare.

So please call me 0 97043 62000 ASAP. - Ravi.

IX   Letter from Father to the Son.Aditya

My Dear Aditya:

How are you doing? I missed you very much on your birthday. Now it is more than a year that I didn't see you.

Chinna Kanna, are you going to school? I have been trying to locate you and mommy but not successful. It is very difficult as you are being moved around very much.

Kannu kutti, do not worry. I will find you soon, and everything will be alright. Do the best you can till then. Just hang in there dear.

Last time I saw you, you were little thin. But now people are telling me you are thinner and taller. I heard that you are behaving more like a 9-10 year old boy and not as 5-6 year old. Do you know who told me? Those nice hotel staff you talked to at various hotels you stayed in the last few months. You seem to be more mature for your age.

Well, let us make sure you need not grow up as fast as you are being forced to age like this and not enjoy your childhood. May be you don't understand what Appa is saying. It's OK. Just give me a call at 0 97015 30007. I will come to pick you up, and life will be alright.

Cheers - Appa.
