The Case of Women Matters

 Letter W-Women Matters

To read the story of the letter V, please click here.

The women commissioner argued that she trusted the government took all the necessary steps to speed up the investigation.  In her view, the speedy replacement of the first investigation by the Special Investigation agency was a classic commitment to do justice to the victim. She pleaded to leave everything with the government and the systems to fulfil their responsibilities.

The scene continues from the previous one here.



There was an unusual pattern in the channel 36 discussion concluded so far—no woman was a participant in the debate.   They got excluded or declined the invitation, which no one in public knew.

The omission raised criticism from various social circles, social media, and women's organisations.  On the fifth day, the panel included two women participants—one of them a lawyer-activist, a person known for taking a sensible legal stand on social and women's issues.  The second, she was heading a women's commission, a body responsible for woman's welfare, starting from girl-children to senior persons. 

The two in the panel have roused a new interest in the channel viewers.  The woman attorney fared well in her arguments highlighting the general apathy in the government systems in dealing with women's issues.  They deserve more from the government, the public, the law-and-order system, and the police.  

The latest case in point in such neglect is the Chempoli murder case. She added--the way its investigation progressed so far proved nothing to convince the women in the state about their equal status with men in public or private.  The gender equality stated in the constitution proves just a statement and not a reality until women experience and enjoy equality in their personal lives.

The women commissioner argued that she trusted the government took all the necessary steps to speed up the investigation.  In her view, the speedy replacement of the first investigation by the Special Investigation agency was a classic commitment of the government to do justice to the victim. She pleaded to leave everything with the government and the systems to fulfil their responsibilities.

She used strong words to dismiss any arguments hinting the investigation had lost genuine track.

Spend a day with my favourite author

 Spending a day With My Favourite Author The Image is taken from Blog Chatter      I can include a list of authors on my favourites, filter them down to five and then screen them to a final three. The finalists are J M Coetzee, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Trevour Noah.       JM Coetzee is the two times Booker Prize winner for his novels, Life &Times of Michael K (1983) and Disgrace in 1999. The theme of Life and Times of Michael K hadn't made sense to me when I read it for the first time. It was a time when I couldn't analyse creative writing beyond the book's pages and that of a great writer like Coetzee.   The novel unfolds the concerns and the dilemma of Michael K, ugly to look at, beset by life conditions he never comprehends and can't control during the times of a fictional civil war in South Africa. Another reason to be fascinated by the two books is the story settings are places I am living or lived.       Disgrace is a suggestive story about post-apartheid

Things I would Like to Work on in the Month of August

  4Things I would like to work on in August Images from my file using Canva.com Failing to plan things is planning to fail. During my teaching years, I crammed the idea into my learner's minds and mine. Once I retired, I lapsed into not caring about planning things.   The call to write about four things I like to work on in August came as a wake-up call to renew the habit, and I jumped for it. August, in a biblical sense, is the month of beginning things. In South Africa, August celebrates 'women's Month,' to commemorate a historic march of women of all races made on 9 August 1956 against apartheid.  The month of July got stuffed up with book reviews and Insta Reel creations, things I enjoyed much. The beautiful themes and plot developments of the books reviewed afforded me new perspectives, and I have more queued in my reading list. The IG Reels were a thing of technical adventure, a challenge that made me feel stupid in the initial days, and when I called out 'Eu

Arjun Madhavan - the Protagonist of my up-Coming Thriller-Murder at Thampuran Kotta

A 'no' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'yes' merely uttered to please, or worse to avoid trouble -- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi A-For Arjun #BlogChatterA2Z The image was taken from Pexels.com Thoroughly excited to reveal the protagonist of my upcoming thriller -Murder at Thampuran Kotta, as part of this year's A2Z marathon-the first of its kind I have ever undertaken. His name is Arjun Madhavan--a familiar name among Malayalam speakers. The first post would suffice to present him before you, not a hectic introduction. Then the remaining twenty-five posts to complete the rest of my novel or up to where they take me. This is my second author endeavour- the first is an e-book titled, Under the Bakula Tree, published on Amazon.com-- a contemporary woman story and a short read--a sisterhood taking root under the patriarchy is the subtitle.   Three-fourths of the thriller I have covered.  It was a group expedition, I reckon, sailing through unfamili
