WCD Record On The Sexual Harassment Bill

These records from the WCD pertaining to the flawed sexual harassment bill came to light on account of RTI Activists.

I am posting them here to shine a light on the workings of the Babus, the cogs that make the govt run or not run.  They are also very rude.  You can read about that here:

An RTI Acitivist And A Babu Of The WCD

Here is the request he made to inspect the files:

RTI Activist Request For File Inspection

Just looking at this record, I really feel justified in the low esteem I hold govt servants in. It is true that they are IAS officers and what not, but they appear to be soul less automatons.

You can also see what file notings look like in this record. This record shows the WCD recommendations on the SH bill.

Here is the document:

An RTI Acitivist And A Babu Of The WCD

The purpose of this post is to demonstrate the contempt the machinery of the Indian govt holds a citizen in.

I am starting with an article in the NyTimes that demonstrates the results of this contempt and I highlight this by the interaction between an RTI activist and a babu of the WCD.

This article in the Nytimes shines the light on the results of the workings or non-workings of the Ministry of Women and Child Welfare, headed by the Sarah Palin of India, Renuka Chaudhry.

Take a good look at the picture below, you may be surprised, but yes, that is a starving Indian child.

india-starving-baby

I hope that what you are experiencing is horror and shame.  I am.

This article from the NyTimes says that:

“Small, sick, listless children have long been India’s scourge — “a national shame,” in the words of its prime minister, Manmohan Singh. But even after a decade of galloping economic growth, child malnutrition rates are worse here than in many sub-Saharan African countries, and they stand out as a paradox in a proud democracy.

There are no simple explanations. Economists and public health experts say stubborn malnutrition rates point to a central failing in this democracy of the poor.

Amartya Sen, the Nobel prize-winning economist, lamented that hunger was not enough of a political priority here. India’s public expenditure on health remains low, and in some places, financing for child nutrition programs remains unspent.  India’s sluggish and sometimes corrupt bureaucracy has only haltingly put in place relatively simple solutions — iodizing salt, for instance, or making sure all children are immunized against preventable diseases — to say nothing of its progress on the harder tasks, like changing what and how parents feed their children”

You can read the full article here:

A simple explanation of why India has been unable to eradicate starvation amongst its children, can be better understood due to the unrelated activities of an RTI activist.

For a while, activists have been hounding the Ministries of WCD and the Law Ministry to get to the bottom of the workings behind the motivations and drafting of the flawed work place sexual harassment bill, promoted by the bigoted and clueless feminazis of India, through RTIs.

After being given the run around, an activist was allowed to inspect the files. At the time of inspection, he was met by one among the many who infest in the ranks of the Govt Of India. If you are under the impression that this was some chaprasi or uneducated class 4 employee,  think again !

This was a Baaaabuuuuuu !! Yesss ! An IAS officer with an official car and all !

His name is M. R. Mohanty, Director of WCD.

And what a disgrace to the cadre he is !

This is what allegedly transpired:

“The behaviour of the PIO (an IAS) was very rude and uncooperative. He just showed me three files as all the records for sexual harrassment bill in the ministry. I asked him many questions and based on his own answer i asked, where are those documents where all what you just said is documented? He got irritated and even started talking like a goon.
He said “RTI? Kyaa phansi thode hi chadha doge.” (RTI? Will you hang me?)”
Can there be a better demonstration of hubris within the babudom and their ruling masters of the political class ?
Is there a wonder that there is no improvement in the plight of the starving children of India, if the Ministry tasked with the amelioration of their conditions is staffed with these kind of people ?
Here are some questions.
Who is holding these kinds of nitwits accountable?
If this is the attitude demonstrated towards an intelligent, educated activist, then what chance do the starving millions of Indian children stand in the hands of such civil servants?
Why should Indian tax payers put up with these kinds of idiots ?  Is this the best use of their money? Money spent on lazy, soulless, immoral and irresponsible government servants ?
I have long maintained that we have moved from the age of the gora babus to the age of the brown babus. I think the brown filth is a lot worse than the goras were, simple explanation being that the goras didn’t spring from our soil and didn’t share our blood.
And where is our desi Sarah Palin? Isn’t it her responsibility to ensure that the apparatchiks of her domain behave with civility towards the aam junta? Or is she the reason why this jackass behaved the way he did?
Is she monitoring the progress of the projects meant to eradicate hunger among Indian children or is she out partying or hosting parties?
As for M. R. Mohanty,  IAS.  We won’t  hang him, but we can ensure that his name and his actions live on online in infamy for eternity !
For a little more on the state of the IAS, please read this article by Abhinav Kumar, IPS. I think he has been silenced as I have not seen any articles by him of late. You can access the article by clicking on the excerpt below:

Judgments On NRI Cases By The Courts In India

I thank Ms Girija Vyas for this document. I extracted this information from the MOIA document she sponsored in a misdirected zeal to paint all NRIs men with marital issues as crooks, liars and cheats.

I thought, I’d perform a public service by sparing the public from the vitriol and the smug faces of netas, contained in this otherwise excellent document, by extracting and presenting the excellent parts.

Here is the document: Judgments On NRI Cases By The Courts In India(pdf)

Read this judgment of Justice Shiv Narain Dhingra: Justice Dhingra Quashes An NRI 498A Case

Read this judgment as well:   Delhi HC: Beniwal Vs Beniwal 1989

Also read this news. The Supreme Court is looking into the issue of women who live abroad, fight their divorce/custody battles abroad, lose their cases, land in India and file 498A or whatever against their husbands.

Sexual Harassment Bill Criticized

More egg on the face of the WCD.  The morons in the ministry botched the drafting of the law. Here is the full story:

I pulled this from the Indian Exress. The link is no longer displaying the news article.

Saturday August 18, 01:52 AM

While Women and Development Minister Renuka Chowdhury announced to the delegates at a women’s conference in the capital that the Bill against Sexual Harassment at the Workplace 2007 would be tabled before Parliament this session, the delegates spent Friday afternoon trashing the “loosely drafted” Bill and the “glaring loopholes” in it.Justice J S Verma, who penned the Vishakha judgment (the still extant Supreme Court guidelines for prevention of sexual harassment in the workplace), also “severely criticised” the Bill for its vague and loose definitions.

“Its been exactly a decade since the judgment was passed on August 13, 1997, but the present Bill does not seem to have improved upon it any way,” he said, adding that the Bill of this nature should stress on prevention rather than punishment.

Inaugurating the second annual convention of Women Power Connect, a national organisation of women’s groups, Chowdhury said the best was being done to push through 33 per cent women’s reservation in Parliament.

Delegates stressed the need for the sexual harassment Bill to explicitly state several criteria, for instance who appoints the crucial Complaints Committee, which decides on the complaints before it.

“As of now, less than 40 per cent of Government organisations have constituted the mandatory Complaint Committee,” said Ranjana Kumari, President of Women Power Connect.

Displeased with the lack of implementation of the mechanisms for sexual harassment, Justice Verma said it was imperative that any new legislation should also include a “monitoring mechanism” to check on the constitution and functioning of the Complaint Committees.

Underlining the experiences of working with sexual harassment cells in corporates and PSUs, Soma Sen Gupta of SANHITA, said more than half the complaints that were submitted to the committees were rejected by the “pre-liminary inquiry”. ” The new legislation has to ensure that such means cannot be adopted to deny women justice.”

Concluding the session, lawyer Priyea Narula said, “With the Bill in its present form, most women will not have the confidence of raising their voice against harassment at the workplace. The Bill has to incorporate these suggestions before it is passed and takes final shape.”

Please pass this Bill in its present form !!

The Judgments Of Justice Shiv Narain Dhingra

Matrimonial home is  not just a building made of bricks and walls. It is a home/place comprising of sweetness of relations of family members and elders, full of blessing.

-Justice Shiv Narain Dhingra

Justice Dhingra was a judge of the Delhi High Court. I learned about him from an article written by the Indian feminazi, Indira Jaising, to tarnish his reputation. As I read his judgments, I realized that he is an upright judge and Indira Jaising was maligning him with some silly but vicious motive.

Here is the link to that article by Indira Jaising: “It was a crime that I was born a woman”.

While talking about Indira Jaising, click here to know what she did to a lady in violation of article 21 of the Indian Constitution, and in disregard of the right to due process (Indira Jaising had a woman whose brother was having marital issues jailed. The lady was released after her brother paid his estranged wife $100,000).

Read this article to know more about Justice Dhingra:

The same in pdf format if it disappears:

Rediff on the NeT: The judge who took on Parliament and politicians

Justice Dhingra took many steps to end the extortion in the name of Section 498A in Delhi. He started with the judgment that changed it all:

Smt Neera Singh (498A Income tax) Judgment of 2007.

Here is a post with what additional details I could find about him:

Justice SN Dhingra

Here’s his Linked in profile:

The residents of Delhi have a lot to thank this judge for. Read the article below to understand what I mean:

Here is a collection of some of his most relevant judgments for fighting 498A cases. For the beleaguered lot entangled in 498A cases across India, these judgments are a gift from a god.

Some Interesting Stats On Arrests Of Women

In 1930, the British govt arrested 17,000 women for their involvement in the Dandi Yatra (Salt March). During 1937 to 1947 (10 Years), they arrested 5,000 women involved in the freedom struggle. From 2004 to 2006, the govt of India arrested 90,000 women of all ages under 498A. On the average, 27,000 women per year are being arrested under this flawed law. These are stats from the NCRB.

The family of the writer was tortured by the Indian Police in an attempt to extort over a $100,000 by holding them in custody for over a week. The police, in cahoots with the magistrate and the PP, did this due to the ridiculous allegations made in a 498A case by his embittered ex-wife. She filed the case years after he and his family had last seen her. Thousands of 498A cases are filed each year in India by women seeking to wreak vengeance on their husbands and in-laws. Enormous sums are extorted from intimidated families implicated in these cases by corrupt Indian police officers and elements of the Indian judiciary.
