  2. I just wanted to drop by to give you kudos on a very important and much-needed project you're all taking on. I read about you in a Ms. Magazine I recently picked up, and I think you all are everything that's right with the world.

    Peace & Love,

    Marc

  4. I'm supposed to be extremely fair. So the kind of words I've heard on the go are stranger than stranger:

    "Malai"
    "Chuna" (the limestone that's painted on walls or that you use in paan)
    "Chalk"
    "Doodh"!!
    I hated it.

    And there are more:
    "Patakha!"
    "Saath chalogi?"
    "Kya figure hai!"

    Lines from cheap songs:
    "Husn hai suhana..."

    Obscene sounds -
    Of a smooch that was never meant to sound like that.

    PROVIDED you three look like the picture in your post, i guess bizarre, disgusting, funny words would flow in a torrent towards you. rolling off the floor with laughther, attaboy! i think i'd find something very funny to say to you, given the look in the eye with the three 'babe' in the pic -- the one on the right is fuckin' fugly, so if she thinks she oughta not be laughed at, then she is a freakin' feminist.

  10. I love you guys. I just wrote a post on my blog about this "issue" and my experiences. I felt so disgusted by the harassment I received last year in India. I'm glad there's an organization dedicated to ending "eveteasing."

  15. I stumbled across your blog because I was searching for Indian Penal Code sections relating to sexual harassment. Unfortunately, I was not able to locate a digital version of the IPC. I guess people can only learn about IPC laws after breaking them.

    I do wish the IPC and Indian media would stop referring to sexual harassment as "eve teasing" and call the offense by its name.

    Kudos to your efforts in shining more light on this social problem. I will be an regular reader.
