INTRODUCTION

Corruption in all forms has endured for ages. The desire of an individual to have more than others has aided it overtime.

Close internal relationships between politicians, bureaucrats, and other officials gave rise to it. However, in the past few decades laws have started to keep a check on it. In this process, the Jan Lokpal Bill or Citizen’s Ombudsman Bill aimed at the formation of Lokpal, an autonomous body to examine cases of corruption against administrators and legislators appeared.

Portrait of the Lady Through Ages: Part 3: Modern Age

The modern Indian woman is strong, independent, yet chained by social norms. Today, Indian women are given liberties and rights such as freedom of expression and equality, as well as the right to get an education. She can wear shorts, but only in areas where it is common to see women doing the same. She can now smoke openly but has to be careful in choosing a safe location to do so, where she won’t be spotted by someone who knows her. Young women across India face a different kind of such dilemmas every single day. Their status in modern India is a sort of paradox. If on one hand, she is at the peak of the ladder of success, on the other hand, she is mutely suffering the violence afflicted on her by her own family members. As compared with the past, women in modern times have achieved a lot. But in reality, they have to still travel a long way. They are still fighting for a crisis such as a dowry, female infanticide, sex-selective abortions, health, domestic violence, malnutrition, sexual exploitation, molestation, rape, and even murder.

Portrait of the Lady Through Ages: Part 2: Middle Age

The Middle Ages was a period in European history between the 5th to 15th centuries. It was heavily characterized by the fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of the Renaissance, large-scale migration, popular revolutions and movements in the Church, the rise of Islam, the Black Death and many other significant events. It is popularly regarded as the Dark Ages due to themes of despair and death. However, what’s often not talked about, like always, is the life of women in this period. Let us take a peek into how it was being a woman through these ages.
