    Many men are not realizing that the higher you respect and love your woman, the less available she is for other men. When you break her down, you make her accessible to anyone she thinks will treat her better. In this particular case, whether what he said is right or wrong, but, even if it is right, by habitual drinking, he had already broken her into pieces,

    Chetana mangalore,you have already stamped her as her husband ,whether it is true or not.Men who come home with alcohol in their stomach,and bring no money at home,and await from wife good food at right time,doesnt even know whether she ate or children are hungry, doesnt matter.start with their infidelity questions if not fulfilled their sexuell needs.Even when she is not one he has no right to kill her.I can only tell all women when their husband comes home full tanked ,dont go to argue with him about your infidelity or other problems.simly stay away from him.Because he doesnt understand at that stuper anything.Talk to him next day when everything looks clear and has normal mindset.May her soul rest in peace.Why didnt the neighbour call police first before going to his house.,I cant understand.

    Can you, or your friends do masonry, carpentry, forest clearing, digging or mud-carrying work ? Well, we are educated hence aren't ready to do such work. We will roam around doing nothing but won't take low grade work. When such times come, somebody has to do the low-grade work - right ? Its in such needs that 'Ghattadakulu' or UP/Bihari/Bengali people migrate to our place. And, when they come, they do bring along their criminal mindset too.

    Can't help it.

    Call it hard work , physically challenging work .. don’t call it low grade . There is nothing called low grade work. Every work has its dignity and the person who conducts is also a human like everybody . They are equal citizens like everyone . It is just that, people from twin districts don’t want to work anymore .

    You are right - its hard work. Low-grade work is not the right word.

    Well, presently a man working in the sun gets more remuneration than a graduate sales person working in an air-conditioned shop. Fittingly deserves it. I am not resenting him.

    Illicit relationship and suspicion destroy many homes now a days.
    In good olden days there is tradition of joint family system. Person cannot venture out as needed. Due to separation of home people fall lonely and divert there attention to other things..which keep them happy.

    In olden days there was also custom of 'Sati' Do you know what the custom meant ? When a woman's husband dies, she jumped into his pyre and killed herself. Was it because of love or her inability to live without him ? No, its because if she continues to live like a widow, rest of the men (he Father-in-law, Brothers-in-law) will sexually exploit her.

    I brought up the above example because it happened in joint-families of olden days. You are free to believe the good only, and ignore the bad.

    Ms.Jennifer...On those days rulers of one kingdom occupying other kingdoms and force womens forcibly marry to there demand. Customs was in rajput family so called warriors as they do not wish to go to any other men as it's seen now a days in western world. To keep herself safe and for family's stature she herself jumps into husband pyre without any much obligation. For that reason hindu womens still hold title of bravery. Other's just good to incline towards anybody for any reason. In the past invaders are much who kept eye on our land as it is considered to be precious and had huge wealth..which looted from time to time. Our destroyed from time to time and still we are progressing day by day to conquer lost glory. Where other stand today....just imagine. It's god's first country bestowed with all at one place.
