The Guardian is appointed to look after the welfare of the ward by providing him with immunisation and nutrition, ensuring that he has a chance to join formal school, protect the child from exploitation & child labour etc.. If the guardian acts opposite to these things, then he can be prosecuted and removed.

Your query is silent as to the nature of emotional abuse. The expression 'emotional abuse' has many facets to it. 'Emotional abuse', unless it destabilises the mental equilibrium of the victim and causes him to suffer in terms of health, is not legally punishable.

Hi,
 if the guardian is legally appointed by a court or due to any order passed in a divorce or custody matter, yes the guardian can file an application in the court (any court of his area jurisdiction) to reverse it or for proper relief. In case you are talking about a minor who is under the guardian ship by understanding between the parties , approach your police station and ask for help. As all experts said your question is not clear whether your guardian is your own parent or any relative or any other person appointed by the court . The age of minor is also very important to assess the seriousness of the situation. Abuse any sorts, emotional, mental physical or sexual  should not be tolerated and strict legal actions can be initiated. Before law the welfare of the ward is important so any time on a complaint if a court feels this is breached the guardian can be removed or replaced.So you should talk to someone who can help you .
