04 Oct: Domestic Abuse in India

Written by Manya Dhupar

India, especially is a country wherein domestic violence and abuse is largely prevalent. Reasons for this include, the staunch system of patriarchy in the country, which has created an environment propagating the oppression of women and superiority of men. This mentality is expressed through behaviours such as these, wherein control and superiority is asserted over the ‘weaker’ sections of society. Lack of female education, child marriage, denial of inheritance, lack of income earning opportunities, resentment toward the girl child and other such social issues make escaping such a situation especially difficult…

24 May: Education in Karnataka

” The purpose of education is to produce citizens who
are strong emotionally, spiritually and also in character. However education is not easily accessible to all, lakhs of students in Karnataka are unable to attend school due to basic hurdles like lack of accessibility to schools, lack of financial assistance, lack of infrastructure, lack of teachers in government schools…”
