  2. Hi,
    You did the right thing. The main reason for their courage is that they know that 99 times out of 100, nothing would be done to stop them. I was traveling in a delhi bus and a drunk was touching and gesturing towards a gal. The whole bus was crammed with people but no one said anything. I told the conductor to do something about it but he said that he cannot do anything. When i found that it was crossing limit, i came in between and made the bus stop and got him out of the bus. The most suprising thing is that even then not a single person came in between. And wats more when i narrated this incident to my friends they said that there was no need for me to be a hero and that he cud have hurt me. I think that our insensitivity has done a lot to encourage them.

  6. Hi
    Sorry for not replying to u promptly. As for muzaffarpur, it is a very small town and the main problem here is that people in general feel that if you are being eve teased it must hv been ur fault also. Good gals are not being troubled. There must have been somethng wrong with ur dressing or something like that. And you can easily find boys sitting on tea shops passing comments on gals passing from there. And the amount of staring and ogling wud have to be seen to be believed. I m trying to get pics of a few in my neighborhood. Will try to send u soon. I have sent a mail at blanknoise@gmail.com that consists of a few pages related to rape. Do look at it.

    Thanx
