    An 'enlightening article' with some statistics given which are food for thought.

    2,13,585 was the number of crimes against women in India in 2010, as per National Crime Records Bureau

    585 Crimes against women every day is what the NCRB figure translates into -----

    -------- 45% of crimes against women are domestic violence cases,

    -------- 28% is the conviction rate in rape cases,

    -------- 33% is for dowry harassment cases, and

    -------- 19% for domestic violence

    -------- 2005 the year in which the government enacted a law to deal with domestic violence.
    Really food for thought.

    It isn't just parents who kill their daughters at birth that are responsible. Even parents who have raised daughters, educated them well, given them the very best they can still expect their daughters to be "tolerant" of injustice post marriage or from relatives.

    At a recent wedding, the groom's mother's haughtily asked some young kids to move away from the dining room and when the kids argued back she said "she is the "grooms mother"" as if implying some kind of superiority. And the issue was hushed up with apologies from the kids parents. This is alien to me, and most of us, aren't we all the types that try to impress our partner's parents (immaterial of whether it is the girls parents or boys?, but finally when the occasion of marriage happens, why is there a superiority about the grooms side?

    Without putting the marriage at stake, how does one point out and get the elders in our family to speak up against such mundane trivial things?
