It is terrible that a modern, secular Republic (not to be confused with an insanely hilarious TV channel) is discussing whether it is legal for a man to utter some word thrice and throw his wife out of the house. There is nothing Islamic, Indian, Constitutional or ethical about this completely regressive idea. But then, aren’t we a farrago of many regressive races, to use an expression made fashionable recently. We use computers for astrology (I practice it), cars to honk at people and hit other cars, airplanes to slap stewards, pavements to pee, satellites to watch saas-bahu serials and cardiac stents for extortion.
