  2. BNP,
    I have been on your mailing list but unfortunately havent been able to particiapte actively so far. I'v been regularly visiting your blog and it is heartning to see women taking control of the situation.

    Your projects are great to create an awareness, but we have such a wealth of information and experiences here, how about publishing some practical tips? How about compiling a list of actions that a woman can take in everyday situations? Clicking the offender's pic is not exactly viable in all situations, neither is it possible to run to the police station when u have no clue who that person on the street who just pretended to bump into u was. Retaliating with a slap is not the best course of action if u are alone and a group of guys decide to sing songs and follow u.

    If we can compile "a practical guide to NEVER suffering eve teasing" and publish it in major newspapers and magazines, distribute the soft copy through emails etc it might just help. How many mothers are aware what their daughter has jst been through on her way home from school in that public bus? And what shud a school girl do when she has to travel by the same bus everyday and encounters men pinching her butt or rubbing her any time they can. Can evry parent afford a private transport or afford to escort their child to school? What about the girl at a well known software company who suffers the stares of her male collegue from across the cubicle day after day? Can she complain to her manager that her collegue "looks" at her? Not really!!

    I feel that a list of practical actions for everyday situations will be really helpful here.

  5. Thanks for taking such an amazing initiative... I would say that I wish "you" all the very best, but this project's really about US, women across divides. :)

    hello, first, it is nice to know that i am not alone in my frustrations. Having been sexually abused myself on the street i know how exactly it feels, the humiliation and the helplessness when you dont know the violator who has just zoomed past you on his bike, but not before he has taken a bit of your self respect.Secondly i know lot of girls from hyderabad including me who would want to be part of blank noice project. Please get back to me with the details of the contact person at hyderabad. We would like to take up some ground level projects in hyderabad.

    It's good to know that we finally are getting rid of the social menace. I just came across this blog today and since I don't read newspapers, I was totally unaware of anything that's been going on.

    One thing I would like to see in protests is somebody holding up a banner on what they're protesting about. I saw a group of protesters by the CyberTowers in Hyderabad last Friday and I hadn't a clue that they were protesting against reservations till I read about it the next day. For a whole night, I thought they were celebrating something along the lines of friendship day or anniversary of CyberTowers.

    It's just a suggestion, so feel free to ignore me since I'm just an individual who doesn't read newspapers.

    Dear BNP, Sorry for being anonymous. But I dont understand the whole reason behind spending time on this so called project. Yes, its fun forming a community & keep discussing on some issues. And its also fun forming a groper's community & discuss over their horny experiences :) Do you all really wanna know how hardcore gropers can get ! Check this link out.

    I'm sorry to say am one of its member. But remember, its not about eve-teasing, hurting or raping, its just groping !! Just enjoying the women's ignorance and nothing more !!
