This where the importance of the the Book of Knowledge(BOK) comes, this concept(Expert system to fight 498a) was discussed in the 498a.org Forums: http://498a.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=53&highlight=#53 . Do post your views in there so that we can start to build the BOK or expert system.
Since to change the 498a law is an altogether different ball game, which I would think of as a very meek chance since vested interest would like to keep the law the same as it is, vote banks & merceneries like women organisations(they dont brandish real women issues, they only uphold saleable issues which get them funding, again from vested interests) are the reason. So that would be secondary and at ease, primary focuse being development and replication of successful strategies and promotion strategies. I am ccing this to SIF core for some synergistic discussions/
I will be off air from 21st feb again for a month so, please do keep this in mind.
As bharathi and I was discussing its high time that we have an All india meet in Mumbai(or Delhi) to forge some concrete action plans(we need to discuss those on email and bring it to some shape , before we meet in person- for better effectiveness).
GokulPS: I feel that by now we must have got enough forms filled , to run some statistical analysis. or design some questionnaires suitable for running Factor analysis, cluster analysis and other statistical tests, which can be the first steps to establish some scientific basis for the "need for change".
