Woo hoo! I was all thrilled when I read this article. I hope there are more such campaigns everywhere. Cops are pretty useless and so are onlookers when it comes to tackling eve teasers. They'll show bravery in thrashing out a thief but not a potential rapist (that's my term for eve teasers).
Anyway, honestly, I don't know how it works in other cities. I have been to Delhi a lot of times and have seen many men there who are MCPs who wouldn't flinch from hitting women to prove their manhood and to show women from what these men think is their right place. I have come to realise that in Bombay eve teasers get scared sh*tless even if a girl just stares at them in anger or even if she just says a word. Usually, "abey" works great ;) The other day there was this f*cktard in the bus who'd deliberately stand sticking to a girl when she wanted to get down. That's because the girl would think he wants to get off too and there is a huge crowd behind the guy. I realised it after he did it twice and I was waiting for him to even try doing the same to me. I'd have probably pushed him under the running bus *evil look but joking*. I was so angry and he saw that and chose not to even come within arm's length.
I didn't raise a cry when he was doing such hideous things to girls because I have had a girl turn around and say to me once, 'why are you creating a scene? I don't have a problem if the guy is teasing me, what's your problem them?' I was shocked out of my wits and really disgusted with her and decided not to help a girl unless she asks for it. In another instance one guy was hitting his girlfriend and when my friends and I tried to stop him she said something similar. I shouldnt' be saying this probably but I feel such girls deserve such treatment. If they are okay being treated like animals and slaves what goes of my father?
Oh, today another guy was deliberately standing sticking to me in the bus and I just said, 'O, bhaisahab!' and before I could ask him to move away he got so scared that he chose to get off the bus though his destination wasn't coming for another 10 minutes. So, basically, ladies, if you are in a situation you think you cannot handle and if you are scared to give them angry looks just SCREAM YOUR LUNGS OUT! And start kicking and punching like you are possessed ;)
