A doyen of the legal fraternity, Justice (retired) Leila Seth, passed away quietly into the night on Friday. Justice Seth, one of the three members of the Justice Verma Committee that revamped the rape laws following the horrific 2012 Delhi gangrape case, was an inspiration to the junior lawyers who appeared before her. The former justice was also instrumental in amending the Hindu Succession Act which paved way and gave equal rights to a girl child in a joint family property. "She died of cardiac seizure last night, at about 10:28 pm. My brother Vikram, sister and our other family members are here," her son Shantum Seth told media personnel.

'The Handmaid’s Tale' review: Fictional situation hits too close to home 29.4.2017 DNA: Wide Angle

In this fictional dystopian country, women are not allowed to work, hold property, and earn money. Because of a plague, infertility rates reach sky-high numbers and women who are still fertile are taken in as handmaids, posted at different houses of the leaders to bear their children because the wives of these leaders are barren. They are divided into categories based on the needs of the men. The wives wear blue, handmaids wear red, and household help wear grey.
