  1. I do agree with Apoo and Brad (men do say something sensible once in a while). Dont care about what people will do or say. Its rightly said, be comfortable with what you are.

  2. Hmmm. Ok, I am saying this for ‘saying’ sake.

    Look into Buddisht principles of Non-violence; How stuff doesn’t affect you if you don’t acknowledge it?

    And in your shoes, I guess, you should have confronted the rickshaw driver! “Aageh dekh keh chalaa nahin saktaa hei kya?”

  3. This must have happened a million times and even though your friend obviously empathises she probabaly did not want to create a ruckus and get away without creating a scene.

  4. Its a Catch-22. There really aint a crime in staring. But then, pro-longed stares are morally wrong.
    I have had this topic discussed N no. of times. People stare even when women are in a saree to when women come out in a bikini. The most important part is to realize what you wanna do, what you are comfortable with. The rest is insignificant.
    Tho’ I still understand your situation and personally I feel you should have given the driver a piece of your mind!

  5. Ideas- Mangs stood upto it and as she so rightly points out, the system doesnt want to waste time with a “frivolous” complaint that will never get to the courts except for an FIR filled as Mangs will never show up at the court when she is summoned and that Bihar guy will not show up either. However if one woman on each train who is harrased thus files, within a year, no man will have the guts to “stretch”. I remember the bus rides and station “jostlings” that ended up with them getting kicked in their balls! Hopefully they ought to have learnt a lesson for life!
