Magazine Description

In this issue

There is a great value attached to tradition in our country, which fuels our nationalistic fervor and boosts the esteem in our heritage. However, lying obscure within this ardor, there remain persisting evils of a remnant past. Women who are dedicated to serving God are known as Devadasis. Many states in India have abolished this concept. However, within some temples of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Maharasthra, this irreligious belief continues to take place. Although there is a provision of maintenance allowance to Devadasis, it cannot compensate for their vastly lower life expectancy. Mental Retardation has been underrepresented and underemphasized in legal frameworks across the globe. A brief overview of Indian laws (which include mental retardation in its purview), as well as, the role of non-state actors (who are at the vanguard of change in this domain), is explicated. Legal aid as a field of practice has grown manifold in the past few years, and it is a welcome change. The thought often comes to mind that since the adversarial method of justice is so capital intensive, one not only positions the rich against the poor but even hands over the power of justice within the hands of the oppressor. In these testing times, perhaps we should reflect on our actions and how they impact our social environment. Keep safe.
