Abstract

This Article has critically analysed the changing interpretation and growth of
Custody and guardianship rights of Mothers in India and its various aspects. It
also represents the approach and the ideology of the Indian courts while
deciding the custody and guardianship rights of women while applying
applicable laws. We need to accept that laws concerning children, like most
laws, will inevitably remain flawed and in need of constant revision because of
different dimensions such as women empowerment, Social and Educational
Development and also due to increasing trend of judicial Activism. This article
will answer above issues in the context of two legislations the first one is
Guardians and Wards Act, 1890 which law is a secular legislation and secondly
Hindu Minority and Guardianship Act, 1956 which is applicable only to Hindus
