It is important to remember that this ban isn't directed at women. It is actually meant to strike a blow at the patriarchal oppression of women. France wants no part in this systematic inequality and is also wary of the influence that these orthodox attitudes can have in pushing their own society back in time.

The present amendment has reduced the age of juvenile offenders to be tried as adults from 18 to 16. But there are 15-year-old teens who are accused of rape. There are 14-year-old murderers. In my opinion, criminality is a far more important criterion than age. Thus, the amendment should be in terms of non-applicability of the juvenility condition in the case of crimes like rape, murder, war against country etc. That's why legislative business should never be done in haste.

When I told my mother, that fateful morning, that her son was dead, she fell in a heap, as though she imploded. She hit her head as she fell, but I just walked by her and went to drink some water, leaving her lying there for the relatives to pick up. Was I unnatural? Maybe. When I see Nupur Talwar's face and the steely determination in it, I know where that comes from. From a need to act normal when nothing around is.

As the images of Salman Khan walking out of the court after his conviction flashed on TV my joy knew no bounds and I sent out multiple messages to some of my cynical friends saying, "Money can buy you happiness, but not the Indian judiciary." It was a validation of my belief in Satyameva Jayate --Truth Shall Triumph -- proudly displayed on our Ashok Chakra.
India talks about empowering women. After all, hasn't this country seen countless women in positions of power, including in the chairs of prime minister, president and chief minister? The truth, though, is that these women are in no way the norm. According to a survey by Thompson and Reuters in 2011, India is perceived as the fourth most dangerous place in the world for women. This should not surprise any of us who live here.
