As they all say, there are more than two sides of a story. Therefore, I would definitely recommend this book as an eye opener to other perspectives as well. “For more than 20 years now, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni has been telling stories of Indian women from her home in California. Her women are desperate, wonderful, complicated, lyrical, memorable, even magical…. Chitra’s women experience love, loss and longing through tangled marriages, bitter divorces, childbirth, abortion, abuse, violence, racism, poverty and riches.
They made an attempt to save her but failed to do so. The police retrieved the rope which was used to commit the murder. The victim, known as Shivani was a resident of Champapurwa locality and was a student of class 12th. Shivani’s brother stated that their father had warned her several times about her love affair and was keeping watch on activities for the last three months. On Tuesday night, the victim was caught speaking to her lover on the phone and was threatened by the accused.
Because of this, women in India have been subjected to violence, exploitation and subordination since time immemorial. They are marginalized in our country, often deemed inferior to men. In most cases, the years of subordination has led to a general acceptance of the wrath of their husbands. India is a developing country, which is slowly opening its doors to western ideas and lifestyles. The Indian society needs to develop an understanding that no woman is bound to let herself be the victim of any man’s transgression or abomination, regardless of the relation she shares with him.
She shows struggle between tradition and modernity. She tells us the story of five women characters like Devi, Sita, Pati, Parvatiamma and Mayamma. Patterns of women’s life in a Hindu cultural society can very well be observed in The Thousand Faces of Night. There are other narratives of women linked with these women. Mythological female characters, like Sita, Amba, Gandhari, Ganga,
This article is about Nirbhaya Rape case and how media played its role in this. I will discuss about this Rape case that happened in Delhi in dark night of December sixteen 2012 a twenty three year old girl got raped in a moving buss. There are many cases of rape in our country but in this one media played an important role and gave boost to it and it became a huge movement because it got national and international coverage and it alerted many of them. Large amount of people came on roads to protest. Victim name was not Nirbhaya because Indian law does not allow press to publish victims name in these cases but her name was Jyoti Singh.
Across the lane, there was a narrow gutter which flooded in the rains, and behind that more shacks of wood, cloth, cardboard, and tin.” (1997:49), but “like all parents”, Shiela “never really believed” that her son “would fall in love” bitchiness and drollery, Chandra probes deep into the psyche of his characters in Shakti”, and lays bare the longing for love in a child that can turn even the best-laid plans of an astute mother topsy-turvey, and along with it, the social order too. And after the grand wedding of Sanjeev and Roxanne, and “a curious moment of silence” in it, we are whisked back to the present, as Subramaniam comments “I think of that moment silence whenever I realize how much changed because of that marriage” (1997:74) “Shakti” thus refers to the strength inherent in a women who we believe, has the power
After this controversial statement some conservative Indians try to kill him but he is saved. Later on, reactionary Hindus threaten to kill him if he supports the Pakistan-India friendship. Also the movie shows the unbearable and severe conditions of Pakistani prisoners who are arrested due to taking the name of Pakistan.

The IT industry is highly developed, nuclear weapons and fast developing economy with a rich culture and resources is the characteristic of India in the 21st century. However, India is also known as their great crime issues, such as corruption and human trafficking.Criminal justice system of India, which has limited resources and its own problems with corruption, has had little impact on trading. According to official statistics, the police are only handled 720 cases of human trafficking nationwide by 2014. Also, when reading articles about Bollywood stars who traveled to Africa to fight human trafficking, the readers are led to think that the victim never India themselves, but those who are trafficked from neighboring countries.
