‘Dowry’ Explained in Tanishq’s ad

This is Tanishq’s new jewellery ad. This is the real reason for justifying the existence of laws like IPC 498A and DV Act.
  • The reality is that most Indian parents push their reluctant daughters into marriages.
  • The reality is that most women get married for the love of jewellery and riches.
  • The reality is that it takes a promise of gold for most women to agree to get married.
  • The reality is that an average woman in India agrees to get married because her parents promises her jewellery and property rights. THIS is the real ‘Dowry’.
  • The reality is that most Indian women get married for all the wrong reasons.
Dowry is popularly imagined to be inducement to the groom for marrying the daughter. But the actual explanation of Dowry is clearly shown in this ad. And this is what is happening in India.
As soon as the glamour of the marriage ceremony wears off and the glitter of the gold fades to the reality of life, these gold-digging daughters of India start dreaming of escaping the drudgery of marriage. And they do it in style, aided by the Mengele of our time, the NCW.
  • The rest is the reality of false criminal cases against husbands and their families.
  • The rest is legally aided butchery of men.
  • The rest is legally aided torment of fatherless children.
  • And the concentration camps of Indian Family Courts where the poisonous fumes of bias and oppression kills all voices of reason, conscience and the last whimpers of justice.
  • And all this for these women’s lust for gold.

Gender War is the business of fear

What is the best way to subjugate any nation? Hot conflicts are expensive, cold wars are simply time taking. A new weapon has taken its place. It is called the gender divide. Throw in financial incentives to one gender of the society, call them the victims and one half of the nation fights another in a never ending landscape of desperation and hatred. The DV Act in India, VAWA in the US and the proposed I-VAWA for us third world citizens is intended to achieve just that.

This is exactly what is happening to our society. Where did IPC 498A come from? How many of us have seen or known a bride burning incident? I know many of you would quote third party witnesses, but how many of you have really witnessed this first hand or know a family which has seen such an incident? The proponents of IPC 498A cite staggering numbers of bride burning. So how come it is not so common after all. Why are they lying? What do they gain out of it? It is purely a business based on fear. And it is a highly profitable business.
The irony of this hate campaign is that it will be profitable as long as they keep projecting women as victims. True empowerment shall never see the light of day. Truly empowered women would naturally reject the idea of victimhood. Women who seek true empowerment do not seek maintenance from husbands.
The myth of statistical increase of crimes against women. The media is being used like a rubber stamp for ‘official’ statements of falsehood. UN & UNIFEM origin statements are not gospel truth. What we are seeing is just the increase in the number of cases filed. Fundamentally, these cases have to be proved in a court of law to be qualified as a crime. Therefore, it is not a true index of crimes against women. But the fact remains that the campaign of hate and fear and forced victimization of women is being committed by the very people who have proclaimed themselves the champions of women empowerment.
The ugly truth is that the shade of feminism we see is neither feminine nor fair.
