GIRLFRIEND – Moving Beyond Devi/Dasi/Devdasi

At last, I know what the term GIRLFRIEND means. Before my version, let’s see what are the various meaning attached to this term. I am not including the term boyfriend because I don’t have any clue about what girls think and mean by the term boyfriend. Many variations are found for the term girlfriend. The girlfriend generally means someone who is more than a friend (???), whom one would generally…

Jurisprudence: Austin, Kelson, and Hart; they all say the same thing

Jurisprudence, to me, seems to be the never ending trial of the philosophers to justify and reconcile laws to the practical, and, in this quest, different schools have defined law in different manner.

Its genesis lies in the most inherent human instinct to socialize and help each other. Love is the binding agent for the existence of mankind. All of us…

Relationship Agreement

Since I believe marriage is just an option (Re: Marriage), I know of other options as well, and one of them is bonafide friendship. I have designed a model “Relationship Agreement” for the benefit of those who enter into such relationships. The model “Relationship Agreement” is attached below. The agreement may not be usable outside India in its present form, but, with modifications, it can be used anywhere. However, in…
