mental harassment yard-stick...

Following is the post from Mihir, well articulated. How can government maintain that the mental harassment is property of 'wife' only. Is there a law in IPC which says Indian man can file a case against his wife on account of mental cruelity...
As per IPC " Whoever, being the husband or the relative of thehusband of a woman, subjects such woman to cruelty shall be punishedwith imprisonment for a term whcih may extend tothree years and shallalso be liable to fine."Cruelty meansa) any wilful conduct which of such a nature as is likely to drivethe woman to commit suicide or to cause grave injury or danger tolife, limb or health (whether mental or physical) of the woman; orb) harassment of the woman where such harassment is with a view tocoercing her or any person related to her to meet any unlawful demandfor any property or valuable security is on account of failure by heror any person related to her to meet such demand.In the point (a) meaning of cruelty which has specified theword "Mental".
Mental harassment is entirely a subjective issue.Mental harassment can never be generalised. A woman will be said tobe mentally harassed if her husband fails his promise to come home intime. A woman will be said to be mentally harassed if she sees somefood left-over in her husband's dish. A woman will be said to bementally harassed if she can't buy expensive jewellery for herselfwhen her husband's salary isn't enough. A woman will be said to bementally harassed if her husband attended an important office meetinginstead of going out for a dinner with her. There are plethora ofsituations where women can get mentally harassed on petty, trivialissues.Therefore, the word "mental" is vague and can't be generlised. Ittotally depends on person to person.
The mental harassment increaseswith the lack of understanding between the two. Therefore,understanding between the married couples is subjective and one can'tmake any laws or rules on such a intimate relationship. There is noreason to believe that men are not mentally harassed by their wife.Wife too can drive a man to commit suicide which as a matter of factis supported by statistics. Men too is exposed to mental harassmentfrom wife which is disregarded by the laws (which exactly thesefeminist wants). Including such vague words even in domestic violencebill is objectionable. Laws-makers who are corrupt politicians haveno clue about the labyrinth relationship between a married couple. Toadd fuel to fire, feminist organisation have managed to fabricatereports and compelled the law-makers to device such laws andrules "only to control men".We must emphasize the word "Mental harassment" in 498A and DV inorder to give a correct picture to the law-makers.

Good blog! I feel like saving or bookmarking it! I have a self-employment site/blog. It pretty much covers self-employment and related stuff. Come by and see it if you have time.
Lot needs to be done to have good population of men police, men lawyers, men judges etc before letting these women go to these men. I say this because men are not trusted as per the law. It is like a case where a woman law maker is sending a poor cow to a lion hoping that the lion is a vegetarian. Note for the law maker (specially the female law maker):- Please first sort out other problems before this creates more problems for the society. UK Guy
