The question of UCC being progressive and ignorant of cultural history and identity has been a prominent question of debate. The author feels that minorities specially in the context of Christian Women, and other minorities with or without bargaining power have been historically been ignored or force fitted into categories. The author would like explore and elaborate on this idea and also ponder about the effects of compartmentalisation on progress, culture and identity. In this process, the author would take into consideration aspects that revolve around culture, religion, individuality, fluidity and law.
