Marital Rape:
The Legal Crime in India

Marital Rape or Conjugal Assault is a part of marriage that is exclusively not dealt with by the present existing laws. This paper is an endeavour to illuminate the perspective and the current laws that can be utilized as protection by an accomplice in the event of a Conjugal Assault. There are many slipping assessments on the possibility of Conjugal Law, few are that Criminalization of Conjugal Law would defect the establishment of marriage, and Courts aren't supposed to interfere within what goes around within a couple...

Cremation and Its Adverse Scenario in The Current Pandemic

Worldwide spread of COVID-19 in a quite short time has brought a tremendous devastating impact to the environment and sentiments of people. The corpses drifting down the Ganges River, which Hindus consider sacred, have shocked a nation reeling under the world's worst surge in infections. One can see the dumped dead bodies of COVID-19 patient in some rivers of India. A state government made the first official acknowledgement of an alarming practice it said may form from poverty and fear of the disease in villages.

 

This study focuses on the bodies of those who have succumbed to Covid-19 or any other diseases are being thrown into rivers instead of being disposed off as per proper which may result in the harmful effect on the health of locals. To aid the cremation of the body, the crematorium was running out of wood used to lay out a funeral pyre. It takes at least 400-500 kg of wood to cremate one body....

As there is improvement in the education system and employment opportunities, lots of women are entering the commercial world to contribute to the country's economy. This step of women is not at all appreciated by every man and therefore they try to defame them or have wrong intentions towards them which would lead to sexual exploitation.

Marital Rape: The Irony of Concepts

Living in the year that we are living in, it is truly regrettable that we still have to debate as to whether or not a married woman has rights over her own body. While the naysayers continue to defend the sanctity and piousness of the institution of marriage, it is high time that India should now replace this self-damaging (for women) view of conjugal relationship with the one that makes the mutual consent, respect and will, the true foundation of marriage relationship in India. Women being treated as objects in most marriages is not only demeaning to her but also to all of those women who are part of this mind-set. It looks like the concept of consent and will never exists.

A ten year old girl was married to a thirty year old man. Since marital rape has not been a concept, the man was charged for rape. One of the most frightening cases of marital rape was Phoolmani Dasi (also known as Maharani v/s Hari Mohan Maity). Although the autopsy report clearly indicated an injured vagina as the cause of death, the husband was later acquitted of the rape charge because law of rape excluded marital rape from the purview of law. On 9th January, 1891, the Viceroy of India presented a bill before the Council of India, called the “Age of Consent”. Previously, the age of consent had been said at 10 years at 1860. After the bill was passed in 1891, the Section 376 included sex with a girl under 12 years even if the person is the wife of the perpetrator, as rape....
