Yesterday, Justice B Chandra Kumar of AP High Court passed a landmark judgment asking the police not to arrest people accused under Section 498A (Dowry Law) mechanically. While, many people are celebrating this judgment, hailing the decision, I have my own reservations. This is not the first time such judgment has come out.
Often we have heard about sexism in media and all of the sexism that we hear in media is one-sided; sexist language affecting women adversely. Till date we havent heard of sexist language that affects men adversely.
It was a cool evening breeze flowing when I was standing and waiting for my friend to arrive, who called me a while back, that he will be coming to see me off. The pleasant weather, the cool evening breeze and the fact that I would be embarking on a journey for the next 2 weeks automatically made me hum some songs. And suddenly I saw an ugly looking female looking obnoxiously at me. She was of the impression I am singing it for her, whereas I had not even noticed her and nor was she noticeable.
