Chandigarh, March 09, 2017: The plight of Indian women is getting bigger with their husbands abandoning them and settling abroad. Some of these women remained unvoiced over the issue and have lost everything at the cost of marrying an NRI husband. It’s the dream of every father to marry her daughter in a reputable and wealthy family; however, such is not the case in India. The dreams of castles and greenbacks seemed to have been wrecked after the banishment of the wives by their NRI husbands. Not only are these women banished but also are being tortured, face domestic abuse and exploited financially. In the midst of such a pervasive problem, there are some social activists who are working from dawn to dusk to make these women’s lives better.

The problem of these women is raging with no one to pay heed to their wretchedness. They have been shunned by the society and branded as ‘Outcast Wives’ in their localities. With the thousands of wives outcast by their NRI husbands, it speaks nothing more than injustice and indignity we torment our women with. The state of downhearted affairs is also a foretaste of how futile the law and order is in the country.

“I see a lot of young and beautiful girls coming to me for help. Their NRI husbands have abandoned them and the girl’s parents are living a life of misery.“, said Amanjot Kaur to Newsgram.

DOWRY – A Pervasive Treat

Dowry system is rampant in Punjab state of India where the bride’s parents give a huge value of money to the groom as a condition of marriage. Copious dowry is ruinous to the marriage system in India. Parents already splurge abundant money in marriages that in the due course they are barely left with any wealth. And when the wife meets with such a tragedy, the girl’s parents become incompetent to fight in her favor post the aftermath.

Ms. Amanjot also accentuated the matter on dowry system in India. She cited that “It is advised to the parents of the girl to do the marriages in the utmost simplicity. It is redundant to spend huge bucks on marriages and ultimately grieving at the ill fortune of the girl. I always suggest the parents not to be lured by the materialistic pleasures and marry your daughter to a strange atmosphere.”

“In spite of transferring the property in the name of groom, parents should accredit the girl child with the property instead. This will cultivate a sense of independence in the daughter.” She further added.

Loss of Dharma

As the generations are progressing there is a loss of religious values in people. Every religion has its own values, and if at all we abide by these values – it is firm that we will respect humanity in all the forms. Our dharma edifies us to carry out good deeds and paves way towards enlightening others path. Conversely, it is ethically wrong to treat bride as merely a sacrificial goat in marriages.

When asked to the charity of head about the cause of the prevalent tribulation in our culture, she emphasized on the role of Dharma in shaping of an individual by quoting “I belong to the Sikh community, and I am attached to my religious principles the most. Religion doesn’t teach you bigotry. That’s the problem with the people nowadays; the quintessence of dharma has been lost”

Brittle Legal System

It takes years to impart justice to people plagued by the accused in our country. There are many problems which our government overlooks and does nothing to alleviate such problems. “It becomes challenging for us to talk to these NRI husbands and bring them back to India, as there are certain constraints beyond which we can’t operate. What may be unlawful in our country may not be wrong in the law of the western country.” Ms. Amanjot Kaur Roomawalia stated when asked about the provisions led by the government in the matter.

Concerned Over The Rise of Drug Usage In The State: Himachal Governor

A three-day horse trade-cum-exhibition was organised before the beginning of the Lavi Fair.

Himachal Pradesh Governor Acharya Devvrat on Sunday expressed concern over the rise in drug addiction, particularly among the youth in the state, and called for concerted efforts to tackle the menace.

“Effective steps have been taken by the government and police administration, but we all need to work together in this direction,” he said at the inauguration of the centuries-old Lavi Fair in Rampur town, which was once a centre of barter trade with Tibet.

He called upon the people to promote natural farming. The state government has made a provision of Rs 25 crore to promote natural or organic farming to produce chemical-free food.

The 400-year-old Lavi Fair has undergone a sea change with the rural folk’s changing lifestyles and aspirations, resulting in a greater sale of gadgets and automobiles than traditional items such as farm implements, livestock and dry fruits.

The fair dates back to the time when Raja Kehari Singh of Rampur Bushahr state signed a treaty to promote trade with Tibet.

Rampur, 120 kilometres from state capital Shimla, was once a major trade centre as it is located on the old silk route connecting Afghanistan, Tibet and Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir.

“People have stopped buying farm implements, horses and sheep. Now, they prefer to shop luxury goods like television sets and automobiles,” trader Ishwar Goyal told IANS.

Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur will preside over the concluding session of the fair on November 14.

Another trader Deepak Negi said Rampur was a centre of trade before the 1962 India-China war.

The traders from Tibet used to bring raw wool, butter, herbs and leather products and bartered them for wheat, rice, farm implements and livestock.

“Now, the traders from across the border have stopped coming. Indian multinational companies come here to sell their products. The fair has largely lost its relevance,” he added.

A three-day horse trade-cum-exhibition was organised before the beginning of the Lavi Fair. The main attraction during the exhibition were the Chamurthi horses – an endangered species known as the ‘Ship Of the Cold Desert’. Being a surefooted animal, it is mainly used for transporting goods in the Himalayas.

The Chamurthi horse traces its origin to the Tibet region. In India, it’s bred in the villages of Himachal Pradesh bordering China.
