The two sisters,Sita Devi and Shanta Devi from whose work a selection is now translated and offered to the English-reading public are daughters of Sri Ramananda Chatterjee, the well-known publicist. It is very much essential as well as interesting to know about Sri Chatterjee, the father of Shanta Devi-Sita Devi before further discussion of the latter’s life and works.
One of the most notable causes of juvenile delinquency is fiat or the findings that a juvenile is delinquent by the juvenile court system without any trial, and the findings are only probable cause. Many states have laws that have less harsh treatment of juvenile delinquents than adult treatment. In return, the juvenile surrenders certain some of their rights such as a right to trial by jury, the right to cross-examine, and even the right to a speedy trial. Notable writings by reformers show that very few juvenile delinquents actually broke any law. Most were simply rounded up by the police after some event that possibly involved criminal action. They were brought before juvenile court judges who said they were delinquents, simply because the police on duty established probable cause (Wikipedia).
