Good article addressing domestic violence. Root cause for this is failing to understand each other’s feelings due to growing selfishness in our nature.

It’s shocking to note that the domestic violence has increased in this lockdown period. When these brutality will stop?
Even in this uncertain condition they could not understand the importance of each other, when will they understand?

Let me compliment you for the suitable topic to write on during lockdown phase. The issue of domestic violence is a critical one. Even in educated society the issue of DV is a common phenomenon. There is no strate where this social altercation is a prevalent problem. The government needs to be more strict on the issue and address this deep-rooted problem. Please come up with more such relevant topic.
I visited this website for the first time and this is drawing me to explore more such topics.

Well researched and highly informative article. A grossly neglected area that needs immediate attention with combined efforts of Govt. and Non-Govt. bodies. A sensitization at early level especially through education can help in nipping the problem at early stages.

It’s high in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra & Delhi. This is bound to happen. Hardly has any correlation with education although people talk of that.

A well documented article. While we are focussed on the immediate outcomes of the lockdown, there are other significant outcomes like this that usually get overlooked.
That domestic violence is spread in all layers of the society, economies and communities makes it imperative that measures be taken right away.

Domestic violence is a worldwide phenomenal but to me i never come across any such type of violence either in my family, khandan, neighbours etc. Very strange how could people resort such inhuman actions reasons may b plenty but wife is noble profession one has to under go.
