I and my cousin were sitting in a room, watching television and, to brake the monotony we started talking about random topics. Eventually, the conversation grew a little more serious when she began to tell me something. She narrated an incident which lately took place. While, she walked out of a metro station, she came across some ignoble boys who attempted to annoy her and behaved inaptly. Somehow, she managed to elude from that grotty mob. While, she was narrating the entire incident, I could imagine the whole situation through her doleful eyes.And all of a sudden, a weird grin broke across her face. She said,”That day, I wasn’t disgusted because something like that happened to me but because I was standing there unable to stimulate myself, just standing there without uttering a single word, just standing amongst that swarm, helpless and ashamed of myself.” Her firmly clenched teeth could clearly indicate how frustrated she was with her silence that day. Nowadays, maybe women is a usual topic to write. This incident is not at all the reason behind this post but what happened next was what inspired me to write it down.
After listening to her, I asked her whether she had told her elder sister about this or not and has this ever happened with her too…!!
Her answer was true but bitter and crude..She replied, “Yup, I told her…I haven’t really asked her about this, I don’t know but yeah, certainly, it must have happened with her too”
I mean, is it a tradition or something that every woman has to go through.This nefariousness is so usually occuring and widespread!!
I had to gather a lot of courage to write this down.. I am not quite mature and grown up to comment upon anything, but to be honest, having been exposed to such a society is really mournful!!
