Harassment is not the easiest of crimes to define with precision.Kerala Excise Commissioner Rishiraj Singh an IPS officer believes ifa boy stares at a girl for more than 14 seconds it is sufficient to

besides betraying poor understanding of the law points to an approach that is unlikely to help in dealing with crimes against women It is an approach that all too often takes resort to the quick-fix measure and invasive policing as the solution There are no instant solutions to the grave problem of violence against women In the Nirbhaya case in Delhi December 2012 and the widespread civil society protests it touched off a three-member panel was set up under Justice JS Verma with a mandate to examine the existing laws dealing with sexual violence and to propose amendments if necessary The Verma panel’s recommendations influenced the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act 2013 The panel rightly looked at sexual offences as a violation of constitutional rights However many of its suggestions veered towards loose definitions and ill thought-through and even illiberal solutions While creating an enabling legal environment for victims of sexual crimes is critical work also needs to be done to educate and sensitise people about gender rights or to redesign public spaces for instance to make them more women-friendly Conservative social values that judge women through patriarchal norms need to make way for a rights-based discourse For that the response to such crimes must go beyond mere outrage and the illiberal clamour for stricter laws The excessive focus on the severity of punishment must not be allowed to become a stand-in for a more thoughtful and meaningful agenda for change The police force continues to be lopsided in favour of men whereas evidence suggests that a force that gives more representation to women can make both police and the citizenry more sensitive to gender issues With more women stepping out of homes to join both the formal and informal work force and with

January 1921 a sanyasi with a regal bearing appeared in Dhaka and rumours began to circulate that the Kumar had returned Theatre director Zuleikha Chaudhari takes up the court case that followed in her new production titled Rehearsing the Witness to probe larger issues of identity and acting The long-duration play with actors Mallika Taneja Prayas Abhinav Saif Ali and Shivam Pradhan allows audiences to watch the making of the production — from visiting auditions and the final show to an archive of reference material and props — over several days in December and January Excerpts from an interview: Every era has featured a sensational murder case in India What drew you to the Bhawal court case My introduction to this material was through photographs The Alkazi Foundation has 90 photographs from the court case; it is all evidence material This case is about the identity of the second Kumar of Bhawal Many people including his sister said the sanyasi was him while many people including his wife said it was not His other two brothers had died and their estate had lapsed to the British Court of Wards So the sanyasi or the plaintiff filed a case against the British Court of Wards The trial took place between 1930 and 1946 We have photographs of the Kumar before he went to Darjeeling there are photographs of the plaintiff dressed as the Kumar because they were trying to do a match-up This question of identity and of him being an imposter are for me very strongly linked to the question of acting and how does one take on another and how well does one take it on Your plays are not simply about watching theatre How does Rehearsing the Witness merge art and theatre I also function with the visual arts with my installations and this project has formed from thinking about the performance as an exhibition The piece is less a stage production and more a re-enactment and a retrial with the gallery space also making a transition The performance opens on December 17 and from the 18th to the 23rd the space will host rehearsals with three performers who play Kumar or the plaintiff the wife and the sister An open audition call has gone out for people to try for these parts as well as for reading of segments from the testimonies of photographers doctors and lawyers In January-February the space becomes like a stage where the final performance will be held It also acts as an exhibition so all the material reference material I have looked at and traces of what has happened in the space including the rehearsals the props and the costumes will be available Can the audience walk in and out of the performance I was working with the idea that this was a case that went on for 16 years If you sit there for the whole day you will see a very strong version of it If you sit there for a short while you will get a part of it It is really dependent on you as the audience because I am not trapping you The idea of the exhibition is that unlike a play you are not stuck anywhere The doors don’t close This is also how classical performances such as Kathakali work People stay for a little while go away and come back When one goes to see art nobody stands and says ‘This is a very good painting and you have to look at it for 20 minutes’ Why did you read this courtroom drama as a larger exploration on the definitions of identity At this point how is it not possible to think about identity It is a response to the time in which we are Everything is about who one is Are you Hindu or Muslim What do you have claim to What borders can you enter because of who you are How can you ask to enter somewhere else I have been very interested for a long time in thinking about what acting is because it is a very particular thing in the context of theatre but when you think about it in the larger sense it has many ramifications How does one perform oneself What identity do you put forth if you say that ‘I have left my country and I want to come and live in yours’ The moment we are anywhere we have to be able to say who we are and this is done with the Aadhar card and all sorts of identity cards The Bhawal case involves a scene of a crime but it’s also very Rashomon Becoming a sanyasi is also about giving up yourself and your identity; they cover their bodies with ashes to mitigate their individuality It is interesting that there is an actual death in the case as well as a deeply spiritual and philosophical one Your theatre is vastly different from the form practised by Ebrahim Alkazi your grandfather but has he influenced you in any way Actually my grandfather only ever talked to me about art as I grew up It was not just ‘Oh I like good art’ but also what art is and what it should be doing and how does one read images He was a theatre director he had a gallery and he is also a collector of photographs and I have been thinking about the links between these The performance will be held at Mumbai Art Room Pipewala Building

News Having a depressed mother during elementary or middle school raises the likelihood a child will engage in risky behaviors like drinking and smoking during the teen years according to a new Canadian study Based on nearly 3000 children followed since they were toddlers the researchers also found that kids with depressed mothers in “middle childhood” were likely to start risky health behaviors earlier in their adolescence than other kids “Although there is a fairly good body of evidence suggesting that maternal depression is associated with depression in the child there is a lot less about how maternal depression might influence adolescent behavior” Ian Colman the study’s senior author told Reuters Health in an email “Given how prevalent maternal depression is and that risky adolescent behaviors are associated with poor long-term outcomes in adulthood we thought better evidence in this area could be really useful” said Colman a researcher at the University of Ottowa in Ontario Previous studies have suggested a link between a mother’s depression during pregnancy or right after a baby is born to the teenager’s mental health But not much is known about maternal depression and later adolescent behaviors Colman’s team writes in the journal Pediatrics The study team analyzed data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth a large Canadian population study that began when the kids were ages two to five in 1994 and ended in 2009 when they were teenagers Every two years the participating mothers answered questions about their own physical and mental health and about the health of their kids and spouses or partners their available social support and family functioning Once the children reached the age of 10 or 11 they filled out their own questionnaires When they reached adolescence the young participants were asked about their engagement in risky behaviors such as drug and alcohol use carrying a weapon or running away from home A total of 2910 teens completed the study The researchers found that teens who had been exposed to maternal depressive symptoms during middle childhood were more likely to use alcohol cigarettes or marijuana and to engage in violent and nonviolent delinquent behavior In addition they were more likely to engage in these behaviors earlier than teens whose mothers had low or no symptoms of depression The study team also found that teens exposed to recurrent maternal depression throughout their childhood engaged in more nonviolent risky behaviors compared to those whose mothers had low or no depression In contrast kids whose mothers’ depression symptoms started when the child was already in the early teens did not engage in more risky behaviors than kids without any maternal depression exposure The results don’t prove that the mothers’ symptoms when their children were young caused the children’s behavior in adolescence But the authors write middle childhood is a period of increasing cognitive social and emotional development Kids in this age group begin school refine their language skills and increasingly engage in social peer relationships Being exposed to a mother’s depressive symptoms and negative parenting behaviors may harm the child’s own development during this sensitive time and lead to “lasting deficits” they speculate Colman said that asking for help can be hard but even just talking about how she is feeling can sometimes be a really helpful start on the road to recovery for a mother experiencing depression Colman thinks it’s great that there seems to be a growing focus on maternal health but added “let’s not forget that what is good for mothers is often good for their kids as well For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express
