Vibhuti Narain Mishra can get a divorce for being called Nalla by his wife. 
 
India is in throes of a new issue, the triple Talaq and its relevance. The silver lining to triple talaq is that at least it saves lots of money running to courts for deciding if the intent was that of talaq or not. And the ease and comfort of finishing of the marriage is beyond doubt. 
 
The recent decision of Delhi High Court, which found calling ‘Mota Haathi’ (a fat elephant) to a husband a genuine reason for divorce clearly establishes that even if the intent is not that of divorce and still if one spouse says anything which hurts the sentiment of the other it is a valid reason for divorce. 
 
This decision comes as a boon in disguise. Any male or female who wishes to get rid of the spouse just has to say something really deprecating and demeaning like Bhikhari, Nalla, Mota, Azgar and behold you are divorced. And as you know Indians are very creative in calling demeaning names. 
 
The thing to ponder is that can this process be generalized so that it may save people from going to court spending thousands of rupees, tens of years of their lives, worries, tensions, just to figure out if the name called by the spouse was really demeaning and hurting. If we really want to make this ruling people-friendly then do away with the cumbersome process of fighting out decades of court case to find out that if the BMI of a Haathi was insulting or not. 
 
The best way would be to ask all married couples to use triple talaq instead of calling different names for seeking a divorce.
1. The intent becomes completely clear when a spouse calls three times talaq.
2. There can be no misinterpretation.
3. The language of the couples will be refined always. No profanity
4. The insult and humiliation is completely removed from the picture. 
 
And the feminist fear of and opposition to triple talaq will be completely allayed if it is universalized and even the females are given the right to divorce by saying triple talaq to Mota Haathis and the Kaamchor Azgars.
