Parenting wars PDF Print E-mail

Whereas in the past parenting differently was tolerated, there is now a belief that there is only one ‘right’ way to rear children

It has bothered me all my life that I do not paint like everybody else .”

– Henri Matisse

A COUPLE OF months ago in the UK there was a furore over parents who allowed their children, aged six and eight, to cycle the short journey to school each day unaccompanied. Parents of other children were so upset at this that they made official complaints to social services, which escalated when the parents refused to change their behaviour.

More women giving up child custody after divorce PDF Print E-mail

Their love marriage ended in three years and when it came to the fate of their child, Awantika did not hesitate to let her son stay with her ex-husband Rishi as he was close to his grandparents.

Not long ago, a mother willingly giving up the custody rights over her children during divorce proceedings was unthinkable but now women are beginning to consider the option for the sake of their kids' well-being.

Many mothers now wrestle with the questions like -- Do I really want custody? and Is this best for the child? -- before taking any decision. In some cases, they also feel that if the child is with them, it almost frees the fathers from all responsibilities.

"Just a few months after my marriage, I understood that my husband had an inferiority complex as I was a successful chartered accountant and his business was not doing very well but things were ok," said 32-year-old Deepika Seth.

"But gradually he became intolerable. He started objecting to my work-related trips and friend circles. Our love life was zero, so I decided to split but I cannot deny the fact that he is a great father to my three-year-old Krishma," said Deepika, who has given up custody rights over her daughter.

Several Bangaloreans welcome the SC judgment against maintenance for women in live-in relationships, say it’s high time government amended the Domestic Violence Act

Men’s rights groups in the city have welcomed the recent supreme court judgment that women in live-in relationships cannot demand maintenance from their male partners. They have also come out against additional solicitor general Indira Jaisingh who has criticised the judgment.

Kumar V Jahgirdar, a social activist fighting for gender-neutral laws and family harmony, said, “I welcome the supreme court judgment. The concept of women demanding money from men to maintain their lifestyles is completely unacceptable in this era. Men are not economic slaves that they have to keep giving money and gifts every month to concubines and part-time lovers for decades or their whole life even after the end of the relationship.”

Virag Dhulia, liaison officer (India) for the National Coalition for Men (NCFM), said, “It is outrageous that Indira Jaisingh argues in a non-government case and demands that a man pays Rs 500 every month to one of his sexual partners for many decades in future just like a free ATM machine. Given a chance, she can also push courts to order men to pay maintenance to their female colleagues at work, citing some imaginary office romance. We are heading towards a society where women are independent and men are no longer treated as free ATM machines.”

“Today, sexual relationships between men and women are mostly mutual. Lawmakers must put an end to this practice of maintenance, alimony and compensation to women just due to some mutual sexual or emotional relationships for short or long periods of time,” says Jahgirdar.

Women welcome judgment
Some women have welcomed the supreme court judgment which went against the Domestic Violence Act 2005. Roshni Mathan Pereira, family counsellor and mediator at Children’s Rights Initiative For Shared Parenting (CRISP), said, “The Domestic Violence Act is very biased. It does not include the role of husbands and children within the framework of a family. It reads like a set of rules on how to break a marriage. Jaisingh, who is one of the architects of the Act, does not look into the importance and role of the women in the family.

“The Act deals with jargon like concubine and is more worried about such women than the wife. It is not pro-family. The act has become a magic wand in the hands of dominatrix wives who misuse it to break their families because of their own intolerance and manipulations leading to alternative character roles like live-ins, keeps, concubines and spouse thieves.
Though the supreme court has said it is not for them to legislate or amend the law, the government should revamp the act as soon as possible.”

Letter to Rajya Sabha
The Save Indian Family Foundation has also come out against the Act. In a letter to the Rajya Sabha secretariat, it has called for its amendment, saying, “Although the name of the act is Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, almost all the cases are filed only by wives or daughters-in-law. The foundation has called for making the Act ‘gender neutral’, rewriting sections and punishing false complainants.

Parental Alienation of Aditya Chandran PDF Print E-mail
Written by Dr. V. Ravi Chandran, father of Aditya.   
Thursday, 14 October 2010 07:35

International parental kidnapping of Aditya and subsequent brainwashing and parental alienation of Aditya is a text book case. This letter is a summary of every technique used by Aditya’s mother to alienate him from his father.

In June 2007, Albany County Family court in upstate NY allowed Vijayasree Voora, mother of Aditya Chandran (then 5 year old boy) to be taken to India for a short visit, with a stipulation that she should bring Aditya back to the USA by August 3, 2007. However, Vijayasree after reaching India in June 28, 2007, disappeared along with Aditya, and became completely untraceable.

India’s Dilemma on Inter-Parental Child Removal PDF Print E-mail
Written by Anil Malhotra   
Sunday, 10 October 2010 12:44

Inter-parental child abduction is a serious problemconsidering that it induces life-long psychological damage to the tendermind of the abducted child.

Of the 1.1 Billion Indians, about 30 million are Non- Resident Indians (NRIs) constituting the largest diaspora in 130 nations across the world. The high number and volume statistics show an immense potential for free cross border movement of NRIs. This conversely has given rise to new dimensions of inter-country family oriented disputes.Inter-Parental Child Abduction is one such emerging problem which defies legislative solution in India. Unresolved interparental custody conflicts of children have recently generated parallel conflicting legal proceedings in different jurisdictions without any resolution at either end. A British police appeal in the international media for tracing a missing ten year old Indian girl and another recent Supreme Court order directing the CBI to trace a young boy shows the alarming nature of the problem which defies the resolution in Indian law.

SplitsInSiliconThey were college sweethearts who seemed happily married. Three years after they tied the knot, Mayuri (name changed) says she felt all knotted up. Even her husband Rakesh (name changed), an architect, felt that the duo's relationship was radically altered. As Mayuri felt that Rakesh was more attached to his laptop, the young man himself attributed the broken marriage to deadline pressures at work. Both, in their early 30s, feel they are mature enough to take their own decisions.
