A great talk by an experienced woman from UK ( and Canada ) on domestic violence and feminist movement
While the Government claims to roll out the red carpet for NRIs , here is a grim look at the Reality !!
All that is needed is an allegation
It will take years for the man to prove his innocence, while the woman IS NEVER PUNISHED FOR FALSE CASES !!!

THANE, MAHARASHTRA: A 30-year-old man and his parents were arrested for allegedly demanding Rs 5 crore as dowry from the bride’s family and then cancelling the wedding when they were not paid the amount, police said today.
Sahil Joglekar, from Colaba in Mumbai and working as an engineer abroad, and the woman, from Ambernath township in Thane, were in love with each other.
The couple recently got engaged and their wedding was scheduled to be held on December 16 for which the invites were sent to their relatives and friends, Shivaji Nagar police station’s senior inspector Vishwas Valvi said.
However, after the engagement, Sahil and his parents – Rajendra (50) and Pallavi (48) – allegedly demanded Rs 5 crore from the woman’s family.
When the woman’s father, a known builder in the area, expressed his inability to pay such a large sum, Sahil’s family cancelled the wedding, the police officer said.
On Tuesday, the woman’s brother lodged a police complaint against Sahil and his parents, following which the three were arrested the same night, he said.
The trio have been booked under sections 417, 420 (cheating) and 500 (defamation) read with 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the IPC and also section 4 of the Dowry Prohibition Act, he said.
The three accused were yesterday produced before a local magistrate who granted them bail, police added.
