Sinfully Yours - Anger

Amon - Anger

Have been putting off this post for a long time now! but something that happened today made  me angry again and I need to get it out of me...

Sometime back, i was returning from a day out with my friends and it was late in the evening.. REPEAT, evening, NOT late night... I was on phone and walking in one of the streets leading to my house... a middle aged guy was coming towards me on a bike and suddenly noticed he was making an obscene hand gesture.. i realized he was trying to touch me inappropriately and i jumped away in time.. all i could do was shout cuss words against him... what irked me more was, it wasn't even dark and people were standing along the streets, who obviously behaved as if they say nothing :|

This is not the first time it happened to me... one idiot had spanked me inappropriately couple of years back while in Indore...

I wanted to write it down and vent out my anger.. but put it off as i was very angry and i would have used a fowl language... what incited this post today was another experience of a friend...

There was a molestation attempt on my friend yday night and i am still jittery about it.. apparently the friend was in Marina last evening and a guy had approached groping, kissing and behaving way too inappropriately with my friend.. The friend escaped luckily, thanks to a pair of Nail clippers. When my friend ran and reported to the nearby police all they did was check my friend's breath for alcohol content... i am like WTF??!!

This is not the first experience for my friend either.. there was another similar incident last year too :|

Do you really think you want me to say anything or write anything?? I am seething with anger!! :|

That's most horrible. Why didn't you take off your slippers and give him one? Your friend was so lucky to have got off and even luckier that the cops didn't try any hanky-panky for their part. There was a time when I used to be more afraid of them than the actual tormentor. And the onlookers are the worst criminals because they are afraid of getting involved.

I have had several experiences of eve-teasers in buses in the capital many years ago and when i screamed at or actually hit out at them, not a single person would support me. Once, a vegetable vendor, a woman, had come to my rescue while the college girls and office goers remained mute witnesses. Disgusting.

Been through that, so can totally understand the way you feel. Correct'a solla ponaa, I felt this hit rock bottom at Delhi(where I was before), but realised just a couple of days back that Chennai is just as bad, if not worse as far as this is concerned. Sad state of affairs, really.

First time here, btw. Nice blog :)
