Kadhal Aran - How an app is helping couples escape honour killing
Kadhal Aran - How an app is helping couples escape honour killing In India, inter-caste marriages can get you killed. According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB in India), 3560 cases were reported with motive as “Honour Killing.” The organisations working on the ground to prevent caste-based atrocities say that the number is grossly inaccurate and could be much higher. They estimate that more than 190 honour killing incidents have taken place since 2014 in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu alone. In 2016, when Bharathi, who runs one such organization called ‘Aran’, heard about the Shankar-Kausalya honour killing incident that took place in the Udumalpet district of Tamil Nadu, India, he spurned into action. Deeply affected by the horrifying incident, he started making preparations for a moblie based application to help inter-caste couples get married and seek the protection of the law. Thus ‘Kadhal Aran’ app, which means ‘Save Love’ in Tamil, was born. StoriesAsia member Journalist, Nantha Kishore, traveled to the Pollachi district in Tamil Nadu recently to talk to Bharathi. He also spent time with two couples who used the app to escape from getting honour killed.

Where Football Is Not A Game, But Survival
Football has a different meaning in this small village of Sisola in northern India. While the world was watching FIFA matches recently, people here were stitching footballs, just as they do every day. Football is not a sport in this village in Uttar Pradesh state, but a means to make a living. People here have been stitching footballs for ages, despite receiving a meagre amount for their labour from distributors who seek to maximise their profits. The workforce includes kids, mostly girls, which means their parents don’t send them to school. And families have to take up a high volume of work to barely survive, a burden which is equally shared by the children. Having visited and spoken to families in this village, we, too, couldn’t help seeing football as more than just a fun sport as we watched the World Cup 2018.

The Caravan features StoriesAsia: Surviving a Lynching; Azmat Seeks Justice, Not Revenge
Twenty-eight-year-old Azmat Khan was one of the Muslim dairy farmers who were accused of smuggling cows and then dragged, punched, kicked and hit with rods and sticks by a mob of cow vigilantes on a highway in Rajasthan’s Alwar district in April 2017. Azmat survived, but his associate, 55-year-old Pehlu Khan, died of his injuries in a hospital. A year later, the trauma to Azmat’s spinal cord—and mind—remains unhealed. Fear looms over Azmat: his attackers, who had been identified in the police complaint as members of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, remain at large. Moreover, he and other survivors have been charged with cow smuggling, even though they have receipts showing they bought the cows from the Jaipur Municipal Corporation for their farms in Haryana’s Nuh district. But more evident than fear and trauma is Azmat’s resolve to get justice, with no desire to seek revenge. The court of law, and not violence, is the answer, he said.

The Caravan features StoriesAsia: Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse Speak about Guilt and Healing
According to the National Study on Child Abuse that was carried out in 2007, over 50 percent of the child respondents reported an exposure to one or more forms of sexual abuse, whereas over 20 percent of them had faced it in severe forms. The survey remains the largest of its kind in the country thus far, collecting information from over 17,000 respondents across 13 states. Reema Ahmad was sexually abused by her cousin when she was six years old. Rina D’Souza was abused, also by a close relative, when she was seven. It took both women more than a decade to be able to acknowledge and speak about their ordeals. Ahmad and D’Souza both described feeling a sense of guilt, which persisted long after the abuse was over. In a conversation in a living room in Delhi, they recount their abuse and their journey to recovery. They discuss how families ought to react to survivors, and how law-enforcement authorities could deal with abusers.
