Practical Steps Towards Saving the Lives of 25,000 Potential Victims of Dowry and Bride-Burning in India in the Next Four Years
- Dowry and Bride-Burning: a Remedy.
- Two Tables of Cases.
- Some Immediate Solutions.
- Some Long-term Solutions.
At the very outset, on behalf of the International Society Against Dowry and Bride-Burning in India, Incorporated, referred to as the "Society" hereafter, I wish to thank Attorney Howard Rosen and other associate attorneys of Boston's famous law firm, Newman and Newman, P.C., who decided to work without a retainer when I explained the plight of the victims of dowry and bride-burning in India to them. They resolved the intricacies of the tax exempt status of the Society.
Similarly, I wish to thank Mr. Michael Kenney of The Boston Globe who not only wrote an excellent editorial on dowry and bride-burning in India, but also inspired us to carry on the effort. We may not realize today the full impact of their initial help: only in the future, when we look back, will we understand the extent of their altruism.
I would also like to thank Attorney Rani Jethmalani who pointed out the chaotic state of India's law enforcement system, Dr. Michael Witzel for his encouragement on how we could draw our strength from the wisdom of our Vedic epoch, Dr. Enrica Garzilli, Nalini Parikh, the colleagues in our Society in India, Dr. Malaya Khaund, Attorney Chaturvedi, and Mr. Ramnarayan Tripathi, to name only a few, and many others who have helped me to find a series of practical solutions to the central problem: how can we save the 25,000 brides who expected to be victims of dowry and bride-burning in the next four years.
