NRI forms Patnipeedith Association

Dehradun, April 3
Vishwanath Iyer, a Non-Resident Indian, who now lives here, has formed the Patnipeedith Association to help those who have been harassed by their wives or laws which are pro-women and leave enough scope to be distorted and used against husbands.
He called a press meet today to inform the mediapersons that a plenary session would be convened on April 15 to hear the grievances of those who were having troubled relationship with their wives and want to seek legal help.
Ironically, Iyer's own life had been full of contradictions. He married four times, last time five years ago at the age of 59. He said he was implicated in a case of setting a woman on fire in Rishikesh and was also put in jail for seven months. He also had a live-in relationship with a woman Sharda, who lived in Rishikesh whom he had married third time in 2004 and then married for the fourth time in 2007 to another woman in Rishikesh.
He calls his fourth marriage, a "forced" one where the woman pressured him into marrying her. After he annulled this marriage, he began staying with Sharda.
Iyer said he worked in France as a translator and came back to India in 2001 after he felt emotionally broken after his second divorce and settled in Rishikesh. At present, he is living in Dehradun.
As a head of the organisation, he has taken along a panel of advocates Ravi Singh Negi, Sahshikant Shahi, Rakesh Kumar Verma and Ranjeet Kantura.
