This section allows either partner in a marriage to claim maintenance from the other while a case filed under the law is pending; for instance,in case of dissolution of a marriage However theAct applies only to a Hindu marriage solemnised in accordance with customary rites and ceremonies such as "saptpadi" (Section 7) and does not recognise live-in relationships A couple sits along the seafront promenade at dusk in Mumbai’s suburbs May 16 2012 Reuters/Vivek Prakash Section 125(1)(A) of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPc) states that a woman who has divorced and not remarried can claim maintenance from her ex-husband in cases where he neglects or refuses to help her financially This provision also applies only to married couples who subsequently divorce Under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act 2005 a magistrate may order monetary relief in the form of maintenance to an aggrieved person who has suffered domestic violence under Section 20(D) Notably this Act covers a broader range of relationships as a "domestic relationship" — asdefined in Section 2(F)— rather than marriages alone Indian courts on the right to maintenance in live-in relationships Notwithstanding the absence of laws granting the right to maintenance in live-in relationships Indian courts have readily granted this right to partners who live together on a number of occasions In October 2010 the Supreme Court in the Veluswamy vs Patchaiammal case recognised the right to "palimony"— the equivalent of alimony in live-in relationships— but limited it to genuine relationships alone not ones in which the partners lived together only for sexual reasons and ones where either partner was married to someone else In this case the court also laid downa number of criteria to determine whether a couple was in a "relationship in the nature of a marriage" (under Section 2(F) of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act which defines a "domestic relationship") The relevant factors are: the couple must hold themselves out to society as being akin to spouses; they must be of legal age to marry; they must be otherwise qualified to enter into a legal marriage including being unmarried; and they must have voluntarily cohabited and held themselves out to the world as being akin to spouses for a significant period of time Additionally the couple must have resided in a "shared household" (as defined under Section 2(A) of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act) In May 2015 the Supreme Court had ruled that under the Hindu Marriage Act a man in a live-in relationship was obliged to pay maintenance to his partner and children from the relationship after it ended In this case the man was married to someone else and was in a live-in relationship with another woman fornine years In July 2016 the Gujarat High Court had recognised that a woman was entitled to seek maintenance under Section 125 of CrPC even if she had not married the man but had been living with him for a reasonably long period of time as his wife More recently in April 2018 the Bombay High Court allowed a married woman who was in a live-in relationship with another man for 15 years to claim maintenance from him under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act The court had emphasised the welfare objective of the Act to protect women from violence and held that the term "domestic violence"encompassed physical abuse as well as "economic abuse" (Section 3(A) of the Act) Courts have also recognised other rights in live-in relationships For instance in April 2015 the Supreme Court had ruled that couples in live-in relationships would be presumed to be married and the woman would be entitled to inherit her partner’s legal property Further the burden of disproving the presumption of marriage would lie on the party refuting the presumption The Supreme Court recognised this presumption as early as in 2010 in the case of Madan Mohan Singh vs Rajni Kant where the court had to rule on the legitimacy and right to inheritance of children born out of a live-in relationship File image of the Supreme Court AP In December 2013 the top court had framed guidelines on the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act applyingto live-in relationships recognising that the legislation would apply in case of relationships "in the nature of marriage" Right to maintenance in live-in relationships in other jurisdictions The right to "palimony" is also recognised in the United States where certain states including California have palimony laws in place Interestingly in the United Kingdom a "common-law marriage"— or an informal marriage/marriage in fact—is not recognised Therefore cohabiting couples do not have any right to maintenance or property when they break up The UK Parliament is in the process of considering aCohabitation Rights Bill to grant certain rights to couples in live-in relationships Court precedents in India indicate a strong inclination of judges to rule in favour of granting maintenance to a woman in a live-in relationship In the current case in the Supreme Court it was alleged that the man had promised to marry the woman eventually which further strengthens the case that the couple was in a de-facto or "common-law" marriage It is likely that in this case the Supreme Court will uphold the social welfare objectives of family laws instead of adopting a formalistic approach and allow the woman’s claim for compensation from her partner The author is an LLM candidate at University of Cambridge Editor’s note: Starting National Science Day 2018 The Life of Science and Firstpost bring you a series profiling Indian women in Science The challenges in Indian scientific life are many — more so for women taking up this path This series honours those who beat the odds and serve as inspirations for the next generation of Indian science — a generation that is slowly and surely on its way to becoming gender equal *** By Sandhya Ramesh Farah Ishtiaq | 45 | Ecologist and avian disease researcher | Indian Institute of Science Bengaluru We’ve all heard of malaria In school we wrote answers about the female Anopheles mosquito when we were barely old enough to understand the concept of an epidemic This mosquito’s bite spreads the disease we associate with heat sickness and tropical climate It killed over four lakh people in 2015 Interestingly malaria isn’t unique to humans It affects non-human primates mammals reptiles and even birds Each is infected by a specific species of mosquito that acts as a carrier for a single-celled parasite called Plasmodium There are over 200 species of Plasmodium and it’s quite common for them to cause the disease in birds Avian malaria is a subject of study all over the world Not so much in India though “I wanted to study the spread of malaria in birds because there is not a single scientist doing it in India” states Farah Ishtiaq who has been working as a research fellow at the Center for Ecological Sciences (CES) in IISc Bangalore for the past four years Malaria in the Himalayas Nearly all birds we see such as house sparrows parrots and mynahs are susceptible to malaria Though there has been definitive evidence of this for a while until recently the disease wasn’t really being tracked and studied Farah wants to find out how malaria is introduced and if it spreads the same way in birds as it spreads in humans — rampantly in tropical climates To figure this out she needs to go somewhere geographically close to these climates but in a region quite different in terms of temperature —somewhere like the Himalayas “Mosquitoes and cold don’t go together So I wondered if it is possible that birds that live in higher altitudes like the Himalayas evolved without the parasites” she explains She established seven sites across the Himalayas from Dehradun which is at about 600 metres above sea level to Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary which lies at 3400 metres Farah’s team travels to these sites to “sample” birds — that is take their blood samples —during the breeding season Meanwhile her ground personnel sample mosquitoes all year-round “This is to understand how the parasite is transmitted” explains Farah A year in Farah’s shoes The same site in bad (left) and good (right) weather This means that Farah spends four months every year hiking up the mountains setting up traps for mating birds The rest of the year she works from her Bengaluruoffice On a typical day in the Himalayas she hikes up from the campsite at 3 am sets up traps at a low height and waits These bird traps are nets propped up by poles Made of black silk coir the nets are difficult to spot against the background and invariably birds fly into them The birds that her team studies are small enough to pick up quickly draw blood from and release Sometimes they tie a marker ring around the bird’s legs to make sure there are no repeats Farah ringing birds at a high elevation site Her days in her Bengalurulab start at around 10 am Now it is time to analyse the information they have collected from the field The team works together to crunch data on the thousands of birds they have sampled The ringing gear she uses “There are birds that live their whole lives in the Himalayas and there are some species that migrate down to the south in the winter to the warmer climates” Farah says Warmer climates are also where malaria-spreading mosquitoes flourish She has recorded birds that were healthy in the mountains but flew down to the warmer Dehradun in the winter and got infected there These migratory birds then fly back to the mountains during the breeding season in April-May While breeding birds’ immune systems are easily compromised so it is likely that this is when the disease would spread Farah wonders if malaria is non-existent in the mountains or if there are birds there that are immune to it “It’s like a three-piece jigsaw puzzle — there is the parasite the bird and the mosquito How do they all fit together” It is a long-term study and Farah doesn’t have enough data to figure it out just yet Getting a taste of ornithology Farah did her schooling in Delhi and then her undergraduate degree in zoology at the Aligarh Muslim University As the child of two doctors she admits that her mother was not always happy with her choice of career Her father on the other hand was incredibly supportive “He had also encouraged my mother to focus on getting her degree in gynaecology” After her Master’s degree she went on to obtain her PhD in Avian Ecology and Behaviour from the Centre for Wildlife Science at AMU in 1999 Post her PhD Farah was offered a small-but-intensive project: to work with the famed ornithologist Pamela Rasmussen on a bird species that was recently discovered to not be extinct The small and fluffy Forest Spotted Owlet had not been seen after 1884 for a very very long time It had been declared extinct until American ornithologist Rasmussen came along from the Smithsonian Institution at Washington DC During the course of her research for a book on birds in the Indian subcontinent she looked for the bird until she found it in 1997 This species of owl is endemic to the dry deciduous forests of the Central Highlands in India (from Gujarat to Orissa) The bird whisperer Blyth’s reed warbler a European migrant in India Studying small birds is difficult as they are hard to spot Scientists need to know where and when to look so they need details about the birds’ habits — the time of the day (or night) they prefer to be active the kind of trees they like to perch on the food they eat their calls etc Considering that the owlet hadn’t been seen in over a century nearly nothing was known about it “Rasmussen didn’t know what she was looking for and where she should go” reminisces Farah “But after she re-discovered it I studied it with her the next year” After experiments and searches for a whole year Farah became an expert in this owl species She could interpret the different calls of males females and the chicks of the species “What is interesting about this owl is that unlike most other species it is not nocturnal And since 1884 people had been searching for it at the wrong time never finding it” Furthermore the Forest Spotted Owlet is actually quite similar in appearance to another species called the Spotted Owlet The latter has more spots on its back and has a white front while the former has fewer spots and a brown front The Spotted Owlet is also active during the day “So even when they did spot a Forest Spotted Owlet they assumed it’s the Spotted Owlet” Tracking small birds and doing the kind of field work Farah did in Central India is not easy on ecologists “The rocky terrain and extreme heat were particularly challenging” she remembers “But the progress I had made after four months was tremendous so I received more funding and worked for a year” The story is fascinating but when I ask Farah what made her pick this particular project she replies that it wasn’t fully intentional “In ecology or conservation in India beggars can’t be choosers The Bombay Natural History Society had funding for four months and I accepted it” She then moved on to three years of non-academic work where she was instrumental in creating a network of ornithologists and birdwatchers around India called Indian Bird Conservation Network A fascination for diseases However her passion lay elsewhere “I always wanted to study diseases in birds especially malaria” says Farah But as an ecologist she did not have the knowledge to study diseases Disease study needed an understanding of bloodwork which meant a lot of analysis under the microscope “I knew what DNA was and that’s all” she laughed “I’d never had a job in a lab before” She got an opportunity to do her postdoctoral research at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC where she studied the birds of Hawaii for two years Her research focussed on the spread of malaria in the birds endemic to Hawaii Malaria came to Hawaii through birds introduced to the islands in the late 19th century Each group of colonists brought fowl from their own country that carried the malarial parasite As the endemic birds had never encountered this parasite before their immune systems were not prepared for it and the disease rapidly spread wiping out over 90 percent of native birds Studying avian diseases is a well-established field in the US and Farah built up her toolkit She learned how to use molecular biology and genetic markers to study and track diseases Farah then went on to Oxford University for her second postdoc: understanding how parasites colonise islands Islands are isolated and therefore are prime ground for testing hypotheses about how a disease spreads Working for over five years with these unique birds at exotic locations was not only a colourful experience for Farah but also moulded her into an able evolutionary biologist She could now return to India fully prepared to work with the birds here “It was life-changing” she affirms Farah says she is in this field of research in India at exactly the right time There is a lot of interest in diseases spreading in other species due to the H1N1 and Zika epidemic “I am lucky to have fantastic funding that also allows me to make my own decisions in my research I do more field work and don’t face restrictions on how I utilise the grant This is a really big deal considering these restrictions on funding are what I anticipated would be the biggest hurdle I would face” Farah is one of the few to receive the Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance grant in the field of ecology; most other awardees are molecular and cell biologists Ageist policies widen the gender gap None of this is to say that her work has been free of difficulties Indian jungles where she studied birds are both physically challenging to navigate as well as politically tough to work in While Farah was driving through Naxalite areas in Bastar the government vehicle behind her was blown up because of a landmine There were instances where being a woman prevented her from befriending forest staff in interior India “If I had sat and had coffee with those men they would have started saying that I have a loose character whereas male ecologists could easily sit with them and learn more things” But Farah’s biggest challenge is stability in academia She is doing groundbreaking research in her field today but believes she has no job prospects in India “I am over 35 years old and despite the fact that I am working on something new unique and important I won’t be able to find a job outside of this lab” 35years is the upper age limit for prospective candidates for assistant professor posts in India as preferred by academic institutions While the age restriction is counter-productive to everyone in general (students complete their PhD in ecology on an average at age 34) it is especially detrimental to women since this is also the time most women want to have children Thus ageist academic policies manifest themselves as sexist too Farah has written about this in much depth here These rigid academic policies affect women disproportionately and there are immense scope and necessity for change Farah is sure that unless these changes come about women will have no choice but to drop out “Who knows if even I will be around in two years” Read more from the Women in Science series here
