Women`s group decries Punjab wife-sharing
Sep 16, 2005, 10:20 GMT


CHANDIGARH, India (UPI) -- In India`s Punjab state, with only 793 women for every 1,000 men, the practice of several brothers sharing a wife is growing, a national women`s group says.

The National Commission for Women is concerned about the practice -- termed 'fraternal polyandry' by sociologists -- which it says is degrading to women, the South China Morning Post reported Friday.

Commission chairwoman Girija Vyas said some women were forced to have sex regularly with up to seven brothers. She said the practice was spreading.

Punjab is the richest province in India, yet it has the lowest female-male ratio due to female abortion and infanticide.

Gurpreet, a 32-year-old woman in Punjab`s Mansa district, said she had married the eldest of three brothers, but after she had a son, her husband forced her into a sexual relationship with his younger brothers, including one who was only 16.

Although polyandry is illegal in India, authorities said it is almost impossible to stop it because such marriages are not formalized.

The interesting part is that everyone thinks it is his son and that is why in Punjabi you all every Tom,Dick and Harry, "Bete".

And that is common both sides of the border! ;)

The good part is that the property does not get divide because all the children are everyones! :tongue:

This custom is not only for the Punjab, it was prevelant all around the world, especially in societies that gave land a larger than life importance!

Neo,

When I joined by battalion on commissioning, there were 14 Sikhs/ Punjabis. I was the only person not from the wild life club!

I was told "Punjabi national language Army". The Punjabis normally drop the articles like "a", "the" etc and that is another of their 'speciality".

So I learnt Punjabi, more out of compulsion than desire!

I dont know if this is a growing trend but this practice has existed among sections of rural society in Panjab for centuries. Wife sharing was a practice of certain Jat and Rajput clans. It is disturbing that some of these backwards practices continue today but Panjab is a poor place with bad infrastructure, education and administration so i shouldnt be surprised.

That's a new one.

Punjab is poor, bad infrastructure, edcuation and administration?

Are you aware of the wealth in the Punjab, the NRI money, their roads which are smooth as silk, the irrigation canals that criss cross the countryside, the lush green fields swaying in the breeze with crop, the number of Combined Harvesters, the M'rutis and the Marutas, the number of schools and universities and hospitals and their administration?

Now, if that is backward, then I wonder what is "forward"!

Little odd to fnd a Khalistani not realising the same! ;)

You have no idea what you're talking about. Panjab, like the rest of the subcontinent, is dirt poor. You either have not visited Panjab for yourself, or you have only ever seen places which are worse off than Panjab if you think Panjab is a developed or wealthy place.

Panjabi society is mainly rural, and they are largely poor people who are committing scores of suicides annually. There is no real industry in Panjab except for in Ludhiana and that too is limited. Unemployement among Panjabi youth is in the millions. Forest cover of Panjab is less than 8% when it should be around 33%. Panjab politics is among the most corrupt anywhere and so on.

There is a recent World Bank Report released on Panjab about a year ago which gives full details about Panjab's lack of growth and descent into further poverty. Check it out. It is a far more authentic and honest source than whatever crap you probably read in the Indian/Hindi media.

Yeah? India is one of the poorest places on Earth, so what difference does it make if Panjab is wealthier than most places in India? Compared to many places around the World, and in Asia itself, Panjab is nothing.

You really dont know what u are talking about.

can u support this claim of urs ??


There is no real industry in Panjab except for in Ludhiana and that too is limited. Unemployement among Panjabi youth is in the millions.

Its the most fertile land of the country. and with the kind of yeilds it has the per capita income for punjab is amongst the top 2-3 states in india.



Forest cover of Panjab is less than 8% when it should be around 33%.

U mean to say that less forest cover means people are poor ??


Panjab politics is among the most corrupt anywhere and so on.

So ???? That makes it poor ??
go to bihar / orrisa/ or NWFP/PoK and u'll know whats called poor


There is a recent World Bank Report released on Panjab about a year ago which gives full details about Panjab's lack of growth and descent into further poverty. Check it out. It is a far more authentic and honest source than whatever crap you probably read in the Indian/Hindi media.

Lack of growth doesnot change the present state. Give an extract from the report stating that punjab is as poor as any other state.
