Spotlight : Lemon Girl by Jyoti Arora

Lemon Girl 
Jyoti Arora

The Blurb

'It's all your fault.'
Mere words these are.
"But words can possess a shadow invincible enough to rob even a soul of its eternity."

In a society that finds it easier to mark sins of a victim than the culprit, Nirvi is a young girl punishing herself for the faults she did not do and avenging her hurts by defeating her own truth.
She is scared of her future, and ashamed of her past. She is failing herself, and knows it. She has had a long line of boyfriends, and hated them all. She detests the guy she is living with, runs away from the one she loves , and seduces the one who can never love her.
When Arsh first sees Nirvi, she's a free and frank girl in whose eyes sparkle the lemony zest of life. The next time he sees her, she is a voiceless doll draped in clothes that cover her body less and shroud her soul more. And Arsh can't rest till he finds out what made Nirvi give up her own real self.
Nirvi knows she is dragging herself on a path from which there can be no recovery. Can her spirit survive the treacherous downfall? Or is the pull of fear and push of desperation just too strong to withstand for a girl who believes she has "nowhere else to go" but down.

"When it's time for you to fall in love, even a lemon can become the cause of it," says Arsh.
But can love survive, when even the self love dies?
Can love survive when respect is no more?
Does true love have the power to revive a dying soul?
Find out in the pages of this brilliantly woven, intense, heart-warming and thought-provoking saga of RISING IN LOVE

Books have always been Jyoti’s best friends. In fact, books so fascinated her from early childhood that she learnt reading, by herself, even before she started going to school. And she considers herself most fortunate that she is able to pursue her dream of being a novelist and work at what she loves best.
However, if books are Jyoti’s first love, and she’s still very devoted to them, the thrilling and steadily advancing world of technology also fascinates her. As a result, one of Jyoti’s blogs is a technological blog called Techn0Treats. In 2011, a post in this blog won her the title of Samsung Mobiler when Samsung made her a part of the team of twenty bloggers chosen from all over India through a blogging competition. In this team of twenty bloggers, she was the only woman and perhaps the only one who had studied literature instead of science. As a Samsung Mobiler,

Polygamy & Polyandry.

"29.3 cr wives,28.7 cr husbands : Census bares Polygamy truth " screamed the Times of India dated 3rd March,2015.

Polygamy is illegal in India as per the Indian Penal Code.In fact ,the Indian Penal Code talks of Bigamy ( having two wives ) & not polygamy ( many wives ) .

The latest census report  says that polygamy is rampant in India.. Of course,it omits taking into account, the many sitcoms wherein the hero and or the heroine or both and many more characters keep marrying at the drop of a hat.And in serials also ,no laws seem to have been breached.After all ,they are all set in India.So true to life ,the serials are ! 

Many will argue that since only one community is immune from polygamy in India, that community is rife with polygamous men.And this is not so.In fact, as per Wikipedia,polygamy is much more prevalent in communities where it is forbidden.Many celebrities have conveniently changed faith , got married second time, & sometimes many times & reconverted back to their own religion..The complainant in polygamy  cases has to  be the person who has been wronged.And since in majority of the cases,it is the wife,hardly any complaints are filed.Because wives are rarely financially independent & judicial process is too long drawn & tiring.

 And yes,men who marry more than once are celebrities in their own way as they have made lives of more than one woman miserable .Of course,their daughters,mothers,sisters are miserable but the degree of misery varies.

Polygamy is fatal for our nation .For that matter, any nation as it gives rise to one more exploding population .As if breeding with one wife is not enough,men need many more to breed.Sickening.Sadist attitudes.Perhaps,men believe that unless,they are able to impregnate women ,they will be considered unmanly.Moreover,they want to leave their imprint / s on the world.And whatever for ? Not just imprints,they want to leave clones.Meaning ,men want wives to produce baby boys.Hence,if first wife,produces girls,marry another and continue, till a male progeny is produced.

In mythology ,many rakshasas wanted to live forever.They would do penance for decades . When the Almighty was pleased,the rakshasas would invariably ask for the boon of immortality.

Since ,in present times,men  have little patience to woo the Almighty,   they opt for the easy way out..They  want to  leave behind a son /s  who will continue the tradition.The  legacy of marrying many women for the same reason as the father.And the vicious cycle continues.

Indians think no money is much, if used for  aborting  baby girls ,etal.And the added bonus is, when the woman who was pregnant dies  too, because of pregnancy related complications.This  gives the man another reason  to get another wife,.So ,the sex ratio keeps getting screwed exponentially in favour of boys .

And  polygamy is ironically set to lead to  polyandry .Polyandry is, when one woman is married to more than one man.As the number of girls goes down ,not all boys  will find girls to marry.And so, one girl will have to marry more than one boy.Why girls & not women & why boys & not men ? Because,when nonsense is done ,it is immature & nothing could be more stupid  than indulging in polygamy & very soon polyandry.And also because,in our nation ,many marraiges are decided at the time of birth & solemnised during childhood.Already conditions are so bad in states like Haryana & Punjab  , that girls are being imported from as far as Kerela ,north east as girls are missing in towns & villages of Haryana & Punjab All , thanks to female foeticide.Next stop is polyandry.Before that ,many stages of girls & women being abducted,gangraped ,sold for sex trade & all else is bound to happen .In fact ,India is one of the largest centre of International Sex trade & especially minor girls. .This leads to additional evils like AIDs,STDs,etc.And yet,women has never been a priority for anyone ,not family not society ,nor governments.

Majority of  dowry ,eve teasing,molestation ,rape cases go unreported because ,in our nation shaming the women is tradition.More so if she is the victim.She asked for it. She must undergo all torture  ,simply because she is the weaker sex.And police are insensitive to the plight of women.Faster arrests & quicker trials & convictions are the way out of this nightmare & not the death penalty.Because death penalty is a long drawn process & justice delayed is justice denied.This is so, as delay dilutes evidence & therefore, conviction.

The worst part is whatever it is - polyandry or polygamy,the victim remains the same...the girl and or the woman.This is no country for females.And last, but not the least,I recall what my law professor told me in law college ,"Those having more than one wife are the ones who will be declared  bankrupt , not persons like you & me ." Hence,these polygamous men would ask  Government for loans &  subsidises .Watch this space !

Devika Fernando

Almost as soon as Devika Fernando could write, she imagined stories and poems. After finishing her education in Germany and returning to her roots in Sri Lanka, she got a chance to turn her passion into her profession. Having lived in Germany and in Sri Lanka with her husband has made her experience the best (and the worst) of two totally different worlds – something that influences her writing. Her trademark are sweet, yet deeply emotional romance stories where the characters actually fall in love instead of merely falling in lust. She draws inspiration from everyone and everything in life. Besides being a romance novel author, she works as a self-employed German web content writer, as a translator, and as a faithful servant to all the cats, dogs, fish and birds in her home. What she loves most about being an author is the chance to create new worlds and send her protagonists on a journey full of ups and downs that will leave them changed. When she’s not writing, she’s reading or thinking about writing.
