@ Adv. Chandu
Such so called mind set will never change courtesy mind set of Advocates such as you who love giving colour of S. 498a IPC to each and every conceivable situations to a Indian marriage just to somehow attract S. 498a / 406 IPC.
Here is a blunt to the point straight que. asked to you who is practicing law from last 20 years and probably got married say some 20 years back and further probably has some elders still living at his home where his wife also lives with him.
Que. to you: Is it not mental and physical cruelty per se S. 498a IPC as you yourself say above for your wife whom you leave at home every day from last 20 years of court practice for roughly 8 hours during working in Chamber / Courts? Does she do not need s*x and your companionship in those 8 hrs. which you leave her away from you in the name of bread earning? I suppose your parents also live with you too. Now proudly you will say you also didnot took single penny as dowry 20 years back ! Right ...
Let's hear Advocates found of S. 498a IPC straight answers to above question.
Why donot you open a parchun dukan at home to be with your wife 24 X 7 = 365 days and with your elder parents so that no S. 498a IPC colour is seen even in a Advocates personal life! You have some deep seated biased grudge against Dowry – Dowry death – have only in your 20 years life studied S. 498a / 406 IPC and nothing else in Law it seems and such advocates are shameless social dangers than this NRI husband reference thread post for which you created this separate post to cook up another situation as to how to file S. 498a IPC !!!. I also mean to say reading your this separate post that no husband in India should move 1 inch away from his wife to earn a living to feed her and his family and should on the day of his marriage kill all elders in his family so that wife should not have to look after in Laws while husband is earning a living for the family sitiing on her lap - what a idiotic mind set some advocates have in public forums.
