Important Things Indian Must Know..

In this post I will try to put lights on some Rules and Laws that every Indian must be aware of..In India basically there are rules for everything,but hardly they are followed,I mean in India it is quite common to break Laws and Rules and so the saying fits correctly “Rules are made to be Broken”,But can’t we Indians be little responsible and follow the rules and Laws that we know,if we follow the Rules and Laws,many things will be under control and India will be a better place.. šŸ˜€

The Rules and Laws in this post is not new and I guess most of us know about them,but we hardly use them when needed,So I urge all the Indians to know the Rules and Law and use them whenever necessary arrives but don’t use them for your own benefit…

  1. There is a rule of not riding on the footpaths but Many does that,Footpaths is meant for pedestrians and not for Bikers,So Please avoid it to get in any sort of trouble.
  2. Wearing Helmets–Many Love riding a Bike without wearing Helmet but they never understand that wearing Helmet is for their own safety and not for others,So Be Safe and Wear Helmets.
  3. Wait for the Green Signal,many a times I have seen Cars and Bikes zoomed off even before the green signal is ON,waiting for 10-15 seconds is not a loss at all and To Pedestrians,never cross the road when the Traffic is in flow and always use Zebra Crossing..
  4. Women cannot be detained or arrest by Police at Night,When a Woman is arrested it must be done by a Woman Police and a Woman can’t be called in a Police Station that has no Woman Police Officer.
  5. The legal age of Marriage in India is 18 years for Girls and 21 years for Boys.According to The Prohibition of Child Marriage Act 2006 no Girl and Boy can be forced to marry before the legal age of Marriage.According to UNICEF 47% of Child Marriages occur in India.And Without the consent of the Girl or the Boy they can’t be forced to marry even after their legal age.
  6. Use Consumer Forum forĀ all kinds of concerns involving multinational companies, malls, banks, utility services and so on and Consumer Forum will ensure that toĀ you get your right with dignity and respect.And Consumer Forum is really helpful(Personal Experience).
  7. Banking Ombudsman–A Senior Official appointed by the RBI of IndiaĀ to address grievances and complaints from customers, regarding deficiencies in banking services. It covers all kinds of banks ā€“ PSU Banks, Private banks, Rural banks and co-operative banks.
  8. If you are going to file a FIR(First Investigation Report) and the Police refuse to register it,you can make a complaint to a higher ranking officer such as the Superintendent of Police (SP), the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) or the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and can even complain to Judicial Magistrate,Policeman refusing to register FIR will face upto 1 year of jail..
  9. You can file online complaint on various issues in National Human Rights Commission–http://nhrc.nic.in/
  10. While purchasing any kinds of Good always take a Bill,it is your right to ask for the Bill as without the Bill it is only us who is in the losing side
  11. Register the Names of Domestic Helps with the Police.
  12. And Last but not least Be Indian first,leave your Religion,Community behind and stand together as Indians..

The List does not end here I will add up more as I recollect them…For the time being keep these above said Rules or Laws or whatever you call them in your mind.. šŸ™‚

Encounters with Police I mean Indian Police

Earlier I wrote a Post on Indian Police with the Title Real Beggars of India.But Sometimes they comes so hard at you that you have no choice but to give them some money and make them leave your way

I had many encounters with Police and most of the time I was on the right side but still they were coming so hard at me.But as I was on the right side I did stand them and at last I ended up paying nothing to them.This post is about two incident that I faced back in my Engineering Days and co-incidentally both took place at the Railway Station .

Things I learned

  1. Know the rules and regulations of the state or place you are visiting.
  2. If you are right never hesitate to fight.
  3. No matter how hard it is never end up paying Money.
  4. Always remember any Government Officials are Public Servants.

Though I am posting the incident as Cartoon I hope it is able to convey the situation I faced… šŸ™‚

1.Me and My Girlfriend at Guwahati Railway Station:-We were there to book my return ticket from Guwahati to Bangalore and a RPF(Railway Protection Force) Constable thought they we were fleeing,there was a heated argument of about 15 minutes.And it all came to an end after the intervention of a Lady Constable:-

Crimes On Women-Time to Stop It

This post is an Animated Description of my Previous Post which I wrote for IndiChange.Again it’s Go!Animate that has helped me to create this awareness animation and I am really happy that I am able to produce this short animation that shows how it has become important to stop Crimes On Women.

The Scene starts with an office talk between me and my colleague.I am sad about a news I saw in the Newspaper that day and was really disturbed and then myĀ colleague comes in and we had a very healthy chat on the issues on Crimes on Women.

To Know about the chat please watch the video.And if you have time and want to read my earlier post on the same topic here it isĀ Put A Halt on Women Voilence.

Please leave your views and spread the message.

Thanks šŸ™‚

Put A Halt on Women Voilence

WHO - Violence against woman“The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power.You just take it.”-Roseanne Barr,a well known American Actress,WriterĀ television producer, director and 2012Ā presidentialĀ nominee of theĀ California-basedĀ Peace and Freedom Party.

And it is very truly said,Being a responsible citizen I really want Indian Women and the Women around the world to stand up and fight for injustice,crime,atrocities happening with them because no one would ever know the pain of a Woman until you are a Woman.So,stand up for yourself and make this world follow theĀ suite,show them the true potential you hold to change the world and make it a better place to live in and once you stand up for yourself you will find millions standing with you,supporting you and joining hands with you to fight the evil out of this world.

Some statistics

Women Crime 2011(NCRB Data)

Women Crime 2011(NCRB Data)

Here is the NCRB-Crime Against WomenĀ data.

The amount of Crime against Women in India is on the rise with each passing day.Crimes like Rapes,Female Foeticide,Dowry,Child Marriages,Honor Killing,Domestic Violence all has piled up in recent times and now the time has come to put a halt on it.People who commit such crimes feel that the women are weak and thus can easily be suppressed.

But the main concern still remains that is ‘How can we put a halt to such crimes?’.To me until and unless we change our perception towards Women and Girls such thing will always be there and the best means to change one’s perception is education,illiteracy is main root to all evil,once we are educated well enough our concise will always make us a better one for the society.Apart from thatĀ promoting specific morals or values may be controversial,as such efforts are often associated with repressive and narrowly defined visions of the common good. Moral capabilities are essential, but the means to develop them must be consistent with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,aimed at fostering the spiritual,social and intellectual development of all people.

Such capabilities can be taught in schools but will not be effective unless they take root in family and community.Neighbours,educators,health workers,employers,politicians, religious leaders,police,media professionalsā€“all share responsibility for the protection of women.Promoting the eradication of elements in traditional norms and religious beliefs, practices and stereotypes which legitimise and exacerbate the persistence and tolerance of violence against women and children.Introducing and supporting gender sensitisation and public awareness programmes aimed at eradicating violence against women and children.Encouraging the media to play a constructive role in the eradication of violence against women and children by adopting guidelines which ensure sensitive coverage of the issue and avoid the perpetuation of stereotypes.

To make this all happen and to stop the crime against women we must rise up and stand together and pledge to make this world a better place to live in for Women.

This Post is written for Indichnage Campaing-Write the ChangeĀ Ring The BellĀ for my support in the power collective actions of responsible citizen of the society to bring a change,a change Ā that we all want.

Ending on a Positive NoteĀ I promise to ring the bell by:-by educating the society and spreading awareness among my fellow citizens about the atrocities on Women and how to fight and overcome them.
