Re: Women's status in Indian society

Influence of films on general attitude towards women can not be undermined. In recent films there is a distinct glorification of eve teasing,and 'punishing' women for 'errant' behaviour. Subconciously it is 'hip' to eve tease, because the filmy heros indulge in eve teasing.. the more physical the te...

Re: Women's status in Indian society

A few comments on the above posts. 1.Of the metropolitan cities in India, I agree that Delhi is the most unsafe for women. Also, interestingly, the Indian States surrounding Delhi have recorded the lowest number of females per 1000 male as per the 2001 Census. Consider the following All India no. of...

Re: Women's status in Indian society

I think much of coal and ALL crude oil (and natural gas) are currently controlled by the center and not state. All minerals, coal and mineral oil included, are the property of the State Government in whose jurisdiction (on land) these are found. In all cases of minerals in offshore areas (i.e in th...

Re: Indianness - a (simple?) survey

"Are you Indian? If yes, why do you say that? What makes you Indian? What constitutes Indianness?" I was born in India, (and am resident in India). Forefathers Indian.
