Whole day as I was reflecting on this issue ... I don't know whether Eve in "eve teasing" stands for our first mother Eve. I am sorry for the day God created her. Adam & his creed do not deserve her. And I am sorry for all men because due to some unsocial & insensitive men , they all are being condemned . All are not same but yet when one apple is rotten how can you wish to taste another?
I had not seen Eve Teasing until I came Jaipur. When I walk to my college , I see it so much. Guys make comments , sometimes just - Hello , Hi , or a whistle ... sometimes they shout loud and scare you by driving rashly . On road while you walk , you can have a lot of weird and bad experiences . But as there is difference between joking , flirting & vulgarity and cheap talks , there is difference between eve teasing also. My two experiences were so humiliating in Jaipur that I can not even tell anyone with details. Some can be tolerated but some can never be forgotten.
I am not more furious because it happened but because it happened before many people. Firstly , it was so humiliating that I couldn't look up till I crossed the whole street and secondly , I was wondering , among all men , actually no one was a Man. Its so shameful that all men have become women like. Really , if I would have been in Banasthali for long, I would always be in an illusion that everyman is a Warrior like and fights for right cause and always respects a woman and guard her , no matter who she is - she is a woman that is sufficient.
There are many aspects of Eve Teasing . Its a burning topic. But right now I can only think about its impact on a sufferer's mind & heart. After the First experience of eve teasing , I never went to that place again . There were not much people to witness the incident , otherwise I think I would not be able to go out for several days. Whenever I think of those close people of mine who also had such experiences , it makes me sick. I feel disgusted at the sight of man. It arises the feelings of misandry.
Perhaps those men can never realize how does a girl feel at that time & what can be the after effects of their actions. And I hope they can imagine how grave can be the results of their actions when I will tell them - Eve Teasing spoiled my one close relative's whole life and disturbed her mentally . Whenever I see her - I think how beautiful and sensitive wife she would have made but ....
P.S - I am sorry for abusive language in the beginning but I just didn't want to cover up my real emotions. And please I have not written it to gain sympathy, but for the purpose to make you think over it.
Any sensitive man after reading this would definitely ask himself - if he has ever raise a voice against Eve Teasers...!!!
Please help a Woman sufferer , raise a voice against it , if today you will ignore such acts and advice your sister/mother/ friends to ignore , tomorrow you might have to pay a big price for it. Stop taking it lightly - Eve Teasers deserve to go to jail. Laws are made , but its our responsibility to use them.
