Perception of Youth on Domestic Violence

The problem of today’s society is that the people who, if not a victim of a particular kind of injustice, seem to turn a blind eye to the continuing crimes in society, one of the most serious of which includes domestic violence against women. Over the years, women from various backgrounds have been facing gender-based violence, especially in a country like India. Though domestic violence does not exclusively refer to wife-beating or emotional abuse on the wives by their husbands or in-laws, statistically the percentage of women being the victims of such kind of violence is higher. Certain sections of the youth can be characterized to be politically aware of the continuation of such heinous crimes in society to date and scorn upon it. However, some are not aware or sensitive to such problems as such or believe that the wives are responsible for the violence inflicted upon them. This article basically discusses the perceptions of such kinds of people and briefly throws light upon the significance of their understanding of the problem through a sympathetic perspective. This article is based on primary and secondary research.

Dance of the Nations: Old Problems and New Realities

From the history of the Peloponnesian War in the 5th century BC to the war between Russia and Ukraine, the world has come a long way. But the war has never left humanity or rather we should say humanity never left the wars. Tribes fought among themselves in ancient times, Kingdoms and Empires in the medieval age and so did the Westphalian states born on the principles of sovereignty, territory, population, and government. The nations are fighting among themselves and the world has not learned its lessons after fighting the tragic world wars in the twentieth century. The paper ‘Dance of the Nations’ is an attempt to analyze the enduring questions of war and peace and how can these these wars be stopped or at least their magnitude be reduced. The nations dancing on war tunes forget that there is a real threat of an apocalypse since the weapons and scale of the war have risen to a magnitude where we would need thousands of earths to settle the scores. But sadly, we got only one. The paper will also mull over how India can strike a slightly different chord in the era of new bipolarity (rivalry between the USA and China) where ‘nations are dancing to the tunes of these powers’ leading to a peaceful globe.
