In 2005, there was an amendment introduced and every daughter (married or unmarried) was to be considered a part of the Hindu Undivided Family and hence part of the ‘managers’ of the family too. Hence rights were distributed equally. The only catch is that these benefits can be availed by the daughters if the father passed away after September 2005. In case a woman has become a widow, she can claim her share as long as she hasn’t remarried.
Property can be inherited irrespective of whether it is self-acquired or ancestral. A person can be disqualified from inheriting property if he or she has committed a grave crime like murder. Under the Hindu law, a person could get also disqualified if he has converted to another religion. Illegitimate children would be eligible to inherit only the self-acquired property of the deceased. They cannot claim any right in the ancestral assets.
It is vital to know if a property is in the form of self-acquired or ancestral inheritance since that helps in planning how a property is inherited among heirs. There is a segregation of Class I and Class II heirs for the sake of division of assets. We feel it is crucial that people educate themselves about all property rights’ issues It is important for people to be educated about all property rights’ issues so that they can rightfully claim what is theirs.
The fight-or-flight response can prompt your nervous system to cut blood flow to your stomach and divert it to your muscles, impacting intestinal tract contractions and digestive secretions. Stress can also increase stomach acids.
Anger causes a surge in the stress hormone cortisol, which bumps up oil production and leads to acne and other skin problems.
During frequent and prolonged eruptions of rage, parts of the nervous system become highly activated, making it difficult to return to a relaxed state and, over time, affecting the immune system.
So, whenever you catch yourself getting angry, retrain your brain to calm down in your own interest. Breathe deep. It helps slow down your heart rate and focus on other, diversionary things.
Exercise provides an outlet for aggression and stimulates feel-good chemicals.
But, above all, meditate! That is the most effective long-term antidote for anger.
Just an hour’s drive from Agra, Gwalior is a place to visit for people interested in history and period architecture. The city can be a good starting point to visit Orchha and Khajuraho temples. The Gwalior Fort is one of the attractions here – rising 300 feet up and flaunting a perimeter of about 12 km.
The Fort has witnessed many historical upheavals right from the beginning. Power has changed hands from the Prathihars to Kachhapghat to Lodhis to Tomars to Mughals to Rajputs to British – in treaty with Scindia – the rulers of Gwalior State before India became a Sovereign Nation in 1947.
Some of the famous temples here are the Teli Mandir, Sahastra Bahu Mandir also known Saas Bahu Mandir (literally meaning the temples for a lady and her daughter-in-law). Other visit-worthy places include the hunting lodges of Shaha Jahan and Akbar, Johar Kund (wherein the Rajput queens sacrificed their lives on a burning pyre to mourn the deaths of their warrior husbands); royal guest houses, ordinance structures built under the British rule and of course the famous Man Mandir Palace. Most of these places are under the control of Archeological Survey of India.
The Scindia Fort also has a Gurudwara, the sanctum sanctorum of the Sikhs. It’s here that their Guru Gobind Singh helped release 51 of his disciples held captive. Also atop is the Scindia Public School.
One of the city’s busiest places – the Jiwajirao Square – is highlighted by a garden surrounded by six distinct structures each one built with different architecture. Greek, Gothic, Mughal, Indian, Victorian and Roman.
The homes built here leave a lasting impression with their interesting stone work on the balconies. The colleges, hospitals, libraries, temples, tombs in the city have been elaborately constructed to mirror the magic of the bygone era.
Part of the Palace of the Scindias has been converted to a royal residence and the other to a museum. The museum has 2 of Asia’s largest chandeliers, world’s largest woven carpet and the intriguing state dining room that has a miniature silver railway carrying crystal bottles of liquor chugging on the dining table.
One can even drive around to various temple ruins and other sites where excavation or restoration work could be seen. There is a lot of architectural beauty to be seen around here. Gwalior truly is a glimpse into India’s magnificence, royalty, its architectural wonders and the art & culture.
