Midnight revelry turned lewd.
Unrestrained, uninhibited...
But what's new?
Every woman has been molested.

wat do u mean every woman has been molested.
comes as kinda shock when this kinda statement is made by a woman!

Pranay said...

hmm.. i really din't get it when u say 'every woman has been molested'. I don't really believe that women of our generation caary this attidude...
Do wxplain ur viewpoint..

I mean it. tht eve teasing is so damn common, that each woman's confidence has been battered at some time or the other... in a bus, walking down the street, in a market, so on and so forth. so, the sad thing is tht while a few incidents come to light, eve-teasing as a whole is the most neglected and ignored evil... U have taken me grossly wrong, i feel. The couplet just tries to show wht a rude shock molestation is and how mighty commonplace it is too... Sad, Satiric and highly irksome...

Do yu really think tht every woman has been molested?? I dont think so..

I agree with ur viewpoint.its more of the self respect nd the confidence being molestd.ya there are many eve teasng incidents that dont cum into the light mainly cuz they r either suppressd by corrupt cops or just overlukd.

...maybe its just me, but every time i'm out with a woman, it seems to me that every guy passing has to give her the once over-normally in the chest region.

i've known enough men who so constantly lech at every passing woman that one feels repulsed-hell, even *i feel violated somehow!

people who i have spoken to about gropings on the bus, train or any crowded place say it is just so common that it seems pointless to make a scene, better to avoid an ugly situation.

i find it QUITE interesting that everyone on this thread who does not think women are molested everyday are men! ROFL.

@fedabonn

Its wrong to talk abt fellow bloggers like that.
I m just 18

@tentacles:

i did read your comment. what i did not do was respond to it-the response, if you read the last para, was to people who thought woment were *not molested regularly.

it's wrong to talk about fellow bloggers like what? i didn't understand.

if you are 18, you are now old enough to drive a vehicle (with all the responsibily implied in that) AND you are now considered old enough to decide your own religion, AND you are now old enough to decide on the leadership of the country! you are not 'only' 18, you are 18! congrats!

Gauri Gharpure said...

wow, see tantacles, u now have more than enough reasons to put tht 'just 18' status to grt use.. feddabon put it so beautifully! also, I know u were with the statement i made tht 'every woman has been molested' but yes, as feddabon pointed out, all the other people in this thread atleast were alarmed or taken aback (or shall we say defensive to the point of being chivalrous :) at the statement.. i ws also wondering and amused to see none of the female readers to comment! so i agree with the points feddabon has made totally. in fact, tth such matters are so base tht they are thought better avoided or kept mum abt, is the thing i wanted to point out thru those few words in the couplet.. I am glad at least someone got the message just as it was meant to be perceived... again, you are now 18 and the responsibility has jus begun, so cheers and good luck!

i wonder if only groping,etc. qualifies as molestation.....what about ocular molestation? Haven't we all been victims of lecherous eyes and felt violated by their incessant stares?
