This story is few years old. I was in the market with my mother when two boys on bike passed by us, and commented on me. I felt agitated but I thought it was over and they wouldn’t come again. I was wrong, they came back and passed even more disgusting comments. This time I didn’t want them go away so easily after having said all the insulting things to me .So I shouted at them and abused ,after hearing all this they ran away. Firstly, I was stunned to see that these cheap guys are not even afraid of doing such things even in public but then I also felt powerful as I shooed them away single handedly. This is the only way by which we can stop such awful eve teasing. Boys like them need to know that girls are no less stronger than them.

While I was walking on my way back home at night, I happened to pass an area which was dark and across the road  few bikers were smoking cigarette. I was wearing a black dress. Those bikers saw me and passed comments, ignoring them and composing my temper I starting walking faster. They started following me. Scared to hell, I ran. I changed my way to market but they were still following, whistling and passing comments. I was dead frightened by now. Thankfully  a policeman was on patrol, seeing him, the bikers turned their way back. Though I reached my home safe but the thoughts of all that happened scared me. The thought of what would have happened if the policeman would not have come, still gives me goosebumps. I hope that something like this never happens to anyone’s daughter, wife, sister. We need to take a step to change this to make this country a better & safe place for women.

One day while walking towards my college from metro station a guy started walking behind me .After some time he started singing songs.When my friends (coming from the opposite direction ) met me and shouted out my name, he quickly changed his direction and went away. I am glad my friends dropped in at the right time and saved me from any mishap.

#Story42

I was once told by my teacher that one night when she was crossing the Delhi Gurgaon toll with her husband in their car,they were held by a policeman for an unknown reason. He sat in the back of their car pretending to check it. Leaning forward in the car where the couple was sitting he moved his hand forward and grabbed the woman’s hand. Understanding the cops intentions her husband asked her to get off the car. Then he called up some of his contacts, seeing this the policeman got scared and got off the car and set them free. This shows how unsafe women are even with the people who are meant for their security.

It is a recent story. I was going to my mother’s work place from tuition when a drunken rickshawala started following me. At first, he was silently following me but then he started passing offensive comments. In the beginning, I kept on walking quietly but after sometime I started shouting on him. But he kept on passing comments. People standing around or passing by me simply laughed and made fun of the situation. This kept on going until I reached my mother’s place. Few people were standing outside her office and I told them about the rickshawala. They gave him a severe beating and threatened to take him to the police. Frightened he ran away from there. I felt happy to see that still there are people who rather than making fun of the situation help girls. But still there is a long way to go for our society.

I was walking with my dog (German Shepherd)at around nine thirty at night, that is when two boys came along from behind us and started making weird sounds and calling me names. After few moments as I got irritated I asked them a question chor du kya isko?! (shall I leave this dog?!). They got scared and left quietly.

This happened 2 years back when i was in 11th standard. I was returning back home on foot from my violin class, when a guy on bicycle, found me alone on the road and eve-teased me! I was really scared initially. Seeing me scared,the guy just went on. Then i suddenly picked up my violin case and did the action of hitting him with it and shouted out an assamese slang at him boldly! I started screaming as that was a residential area.He was taken aback as my reaction was unexpected and sudden ! Seeing me revolt, he immediately left the place!
