  2. Congrats! For staging the first successful BNP Mumbai intervention. I was amazed by the response and the amount of woman who turned up to support the cause. Keep up the good work!!.

  3. thanks for being around navin

    i think this worked very well. just the fact that women across different age groups, different eco stratas etc volunteered their time was fantastic.

    thats what made it work....the spirit with which people just joined in!

  4. saurabh, we dont understand what you mean by 'HARDCORE FEMINIST'

    is it a scary word? is it an insult? is it just a harmless question? or a clarification by which you choose your side of the fence?

    we are not into labels. and then again, how will the world make sense of us?

    i suppose we react with our eyes wide open.

  7. just apprehensive jasmine,

    For do not harm the innocent who just fool around with girl(s), in a modest yet raunchy and light hearted manner.

    The "birds and the bees" is/would be there forever, though the method should be more straight into the eye rather than "atrocious eve-teasing methods"

    Agree?

    You expose - People will look at you. Ofcourse, that's why you expose; To grab attention!

    You cover, dress decently. - Many will respect you, and admire your simplicity.

    Don't always think that everyone should have high levels of morality, and have the mindset of "I'll show all I want, but you shouldn't look at me like that."


    Why don't you teach your fellow mates about proper dressing as well?

    No offence meant!

  12. @ Anonymous: Sorry, but figures for those who've been covered from head to toe and raped are more than for those who 'expose'. Raunchiest stories are about men staring at women's blouses THROUGH sari. Also, why are you anonymous?

    @Saurabh Shekhar: "For do not harm the innocent who just fool around with girl(s), in a modest yet raunchy and light hearted manner."

    Who decides what is "light hearted"?

  13. @Anonymous,

    "You cover, dress decently. - Many will respect you, and admire your simplicity"

    So, let's assume that, from tomorrow, all the females start dressing 'decently' or for that matter all of them wear burkha so that they don't 'show' anything; Now, eve-teasing incidents would stop happening?

    Who will define what 'simplicity' means? And what is 'proper' dressing? :|
