WITH HUMOUR YOU CAN FIGHT MANY A BATTLE  - 1 Comments
forum

In primitive days nations settled their disputes only through wars. In the feudal times gentlemen settled all their quarrels with gun duels as if bullets could decide the justice or otherwise of things . In all dictatorships the army and suppression are of critical importance for the survival of the regime. Modern man tries to settle differences through the more civilized ways of diplomacy and dialogue . In his arsenal of non-lethal weapons humour occupies the prime place in negotiating life`s pot holes both in the public domain and in private lives. For the civilized man a sense of proportion of things and a razor sharp intellect replace the savage`s fist of fury . Perhaps like our shrinking integrity in public life our sense of humour is taking a beating and intolerance is becoming pervasive and shooting up by the day. Like the uncommon common sense it is becoming rare to find.

Rape and Male Inferiority Complex
forum

Living with clearly contradictory values seems to come natural for Indian society. Corruption and religion can coexist peacefully. Ritual purity and abominable physical dirt can live together. We are one nation, while every State and language group derides and often hates the other. We can claim to honour women, killing her with the very idea of honour that we impose on her! We can enslave and exploit our children and claim that they are our future! We can be utterly sexual in mind and body and claim that modesty is our national virtue! One wonders whether being a woman is itself a matter of shame in India. If not, why then is there so much of female infanticide and female illiteracy? Dowry is a system in which a woman has to pay a man in order to serve him and to hand over to him absolute sexual rights over her! A man honours a woman by merely marrying her! A woman has no such claim. It is the husband who gives ``life`` to the wife, and not the other way about! When a man dies his wife has no more meaningful existence. It is a shame to be a widow! For a man to live without a wife is heroism! A woman`s economic independence is a threat to the man. So the wife is either prohibited from working, and if she works, he should have the control over her money!
