Recommendation 1 from ‘The NY Times’

Article Name:‘The fight against modern slavery’

By: ‘Editorial’

The real point is that such acts needing the reauthorization are the need of the hour, as the time goes by human trafficking is becoming more rampant. Conservatives and liberals are really not the issue here, the issue is the welfare of people needing support to survive. The wisdom of the time says that Congress despite the opposition should take leaps to get to the reauthorization and keep the campaign moving effectively.

Summary:

The article states the reauthorization of Trafficking victims protection act that still has not been done. This is an important step of the campaign in which Obama is convening annual meeting of his cabinet-level task force on human trafficking. The reauthorization was cleared by the judiciary committee, but has not come to the floor. The article states that now with the conservative republicans, this reauthorization might be hard to achieve, as the republicans find reauthorizing violence against women act also unacceptable.

Recommendation 2 from ‘The NY Times’

Article Name:‘For Indian women, divorce is a raw deal’’

By: ‘Pamposh Raina’

The story of women and divorces is much worse. We ourselves might have seen cases where women put up in homes where she is not respected at all just for the simple reason that she has no place to go etc. Yes, there needs to be this new legislation, giving more security to women. This should be the first step in providing a strong social structure to women.

Summary:

It states that despite reports showing huge increase in divorce rates, it is surprising that divorce rates in India are artificially low, which means that divorces have not increased to the number they should have. And, there is only one explanation that there isn’t much protection for women outside her marriage under the Indian Marriage laws. This non-protection leads to insecurity, which amounts to one of the many reasons that women stay in marriages that are not happy.

Recommendation 3 from ‘The Times of India’

Article Name:‘Handle with care’

By: ‘TOI’

Well, yes, this mater might also be being equated with other matters like evacuating Indians from a country ravaged by the civil war, as the article states. That is the reason perhaps for Indian government being blamed for not intervening. But, if it does anymore, it could bring emotional harm to the children by may be diverting the course of the case. So, it is better that government is watching it from a distance from now.

Summary:

The article states that it’s the children’s welfare that should be the central point and both countries should proceed while keeping this in mind.
