We have in the past few days witnessed a series of unfortunate events occurring in India that have put us to shame the world over. And I will not be wrong, I think, in pointing out that this isn’t the first time that the roads in India or one entire gender in India have spelled ‘fear’ for the fairer gender.
Incidentally, I had written a guest post on street harassment for a blogger friend of mine –
…who I had the opportunity to meet on WP. She has authored one book and is at the cusp of publishing another non-fiction piece based on Fear. Click on the link above to visit her amazing blog, which speaks to the woman of today of being fearless, being independent and being true to herself.
She had kindly allowed me to use her book’s launch as the pretext for posting this piece on harassment on her blog. The link to the piece is here. I had written this before the Bangalore incident happened so it has no mention of it.
It speaks of my vile experience of street harassment and my opinion on it.
If you have the time, please read it, share it, but most of all, understand that a moment’s fun is no ‘fun’ for someone else.
