MEN ABUSE IN INDIA

Most of us are aware of this message that is being propagated through many Communication Channels.

A guy asked a girl in a library,

“Do you mind if I sit beside you?”

The girl answered with a loud voice,

“I DO NOT WANT TO SPEND THE NIGHT

WITH YOU!!!!!”

All of the students in the library

started staring at the guy. He was

very embarrassed.

After a couple of minutes, the girl

walked quietly to the guy’s table and told him,

“I study psychology and I know what a man is thinking”.

Let me guess, you were embarrassed, huh?”

The guy responded with a loud voice,

“200 DOLLARS FOR ONE NIGHT?!?!?!

THAT’S TOO MUCH!!!”

…and all the people in the library

looked at the girl in shock. The guy

leaned over and whispered, “I study

Law, and I know how to make people

look guilty.”

                   Yes, women are competing in every sphere with men and the crime rate against women is high in India. Recent happenings which triggered agitations across the country and consequently the government strengthened the law against women crime.The legislative changes which began in India made it impossible for a guy to harbor the thought of slapping a girl in the public for her indecent behavior unlike the other way round where it is now a free for all. Some women are even misusing it. When a man rapes a woman, it is called crime and when a woman rapes a man it is called love as per law, media and society today. This shows that even the rape law is not gender neutral.

                 There is something which I recently experienced in the streets of Kolkata when I was roaming around and visiting the Dussera pandals at night.

                 I am sharing it with a HEAVY HEART because i never experienced such an embarrassing situation from a TYPICAL BENGALI WOMAN while travelling in a bus with my friends from DUM DUM PARK to LAKE TOWN in KOLKATA at around 2 A.M

                The incident started with a conversation about Bengali women, in a crowdy DUM DUM park at around 2 AM.

Me: Your Bengali is awesome. Its refined and fast just as how a Bengali would speak. How did you learn?

Friend: Thanks(Smiling). I’m living here for the past 3 years and I’m acquainted to people here.

Me: Dude, I have observed that a married woman here looks more decent and natural than an unmarried Bengali girl. what’s it that happens after marriage that they change this way?

Friend: Don’t you know what happens after marriage (pun intending)? In Bengal initially the girl turns decent irrespective of her past Attires and experiences and as they grow they all will be the same and now with costly makeups. LOL we can build a mini TAJ with the money doing the rounds in the cosmetics market of Bengal.

Me: Really? wow..!!! looks like there is uniformity right from a small 5 year old angel to a 70 year old woman. I Just Couldn’t predict her age..!!!

Friend : Shall we take a bus/metro/local to Lake Town?

Me: We better travel in bus as metro seems to be overcrowded 🙂

Got into the bus..!!!..A Lady was standing in the middle of the bus. We parked ourselves facing her holding the support rod as it was a little bit crowdy. And mind you, we were having no ulterior motives whatsoever.

Me(in Telugu, obviously): What a beauty dude…!!! Look at her long beautiful green designer saree, silky hair, designer bindi, thick eyeliner, perlee hoop earrings, shining gloss, traditional necklace, twinkling diamond rings, designer bangles(design on top of black color looked awesome). The costly attire is simply sexy.

Friend : Yes, it is. She is beautiful and married too. Look at her cute kid who is sitting down close to her.

Me(surprised at the revelation): Oh my!!!

After a while,
Lady(staring at me for a while like a jinx and shouting): What’s your problem? Who the  heck are you?

And then started shouting in Bengali which I fortunately couldn’t understand. I thought it was because she could understand Telugu. Not knowing how to react, I was patiently smiling back at her.

Lady(In the middle): Turn that side. Turn that side…!!! Waving her hands

I understood that there is something wrong with her.

Someone from back shouts out loud, “Did he do anything to you? Did he did anything to you?(Bengali).”

Lady(shouting now, eyes becoming bigger): I say you TURN THAT WAY.

The anger simmering inside me now erupted and reached my brain, eyes and then took over my part of my body. My hands were shivering and finally I was about to open my mouth with finger pointed going towards her with much anger.

Friend(observing me) : STOP .

Pushing me back he said,  “Shhh…Turn that side”.

Me: WTF happened to her!!.

The woman was still shouting continuously in Bengali.!!!

Friend: Madam, he doesn’t know Bengali.

Friend(louder voice): Turn that side otherwise they will STAMPEDE BOTH OF US TO DEATH..!!!

Eyes rolled and a sense of silence passed between me and my friend and disgruntled voices reached my ears.

I slowly turned back ashamed and calmed down gradually. We got seats and numerous thoughts crossed my mind like past events, agitations, reason for shouts, men abuses and cases i have read, videos i have seen.

Friend: What are you thinking?

Me: Dude does she look beautiful now?  we have seen some Bengali celeb at Maddox square yesterday who were so polite. Is she more than them? I got a feeling that she is thinking that she is the queen of Bengal.

Friend: Leave it all. As you kept your hand on the support rod near to her hand may be you unintentionally touched her and while shouting she is telling you were rubbing against her(might be wrong) and want to steal her rings.

Me: SHOCKED..!!!

Friend: Nothing surprising friend this is a way WOMEN in INDIA misuse their RESPECT and SECURITY. This is not new in BENGAL.

Me: Had I slapped her I would be dead in public :o. THANK GOD you saved me.

DATE WITH A WOMAN

DATE WITH A WOMAN

After 21 years of Marriage, my Wife wanted me to take another Woman out to Dinner and a Movie.

She said I Love You but I know this other Woman loves you and would Love to spend some Time with You.

The other Woman that my Wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has been a Widow for 19 years, but the demands of my Work and my three Children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally.

That night I called to Invite her to go out for Dinner and a Movie.

‘What’s wrong, are you well,’ she asked?

My Mother is the type of Woman who suspects that a Late Night Call or a Surprise Invitation is a sign of Bad News.

‘I thought that it would be pleasant to be with you,’ I responded.

‘Just the two of us.’

She thought about it for a moment, and then said, ‘I would like that very much.’

That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit Nervous. When I arrived at her House, I noticed that she too seemed to be Nervous about our Date.

She waited in the Door with her Coat on.

She had Curled her Hair and was wearing the Dress that she had worn to celebrate her last Wedding Anniversary.

She smiled from a face that was as Radiant as an Angel’s.

‘I told my Friends that I was going to go out with My Son, and they were impressed, ‘She said, as she got into the Car.

‘They can’t wait to hear about our meeting’.

We went to a Restaurant that, although not Elegant, was very Nice and Cozy.

My Mother took my Arm as if She were the First Lady.

After we sat down, I had to read the Menu. Large Print.

Half way through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me.

A Nostalgic Smile was on her Lips. ‘It was I who used to have to Read the Menu when you were Small,’ She said.

‘Then it’s Time that you Relax and let me Return the Favor,’ I responded.

During the Dinner, we had an Agreeable Conversation, nothing extra-ordinary, but catching up on recent events of each other’s Life.

We talked so much that we missed the Movie.

As we arrived at her House later, She said, ‘I’ll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you.’

I agreed.

‘How was your Dinner Date?’ asked My Wife when I got Home.

‘Very Nice. Much more so than I could have Imagined,’ I answered.

A few days later, my Mother died of a Massive Heart Attack. It happened so suddenly that I didn’t have time to do anything for her. Some time later, I received an Envelope with a Copy of a Restaurant Receipt from the same place Mother and I had dined.

An Attached Note Said:

‘I paid this Bill in Advance. I wasn’t sure that I could be there; But nevertheless, I paid for Two Plates “

One for You and the Other for Your Wife.

You will never know what that Night meant for Me.

I Love You,

My Son.’

At that moment, I understood the Importance of saying in Time:

‘I LOVE YOU!’

and to give our Loved Ones the Time that they Deserve.

Nothing in Life is more important than God and your Family.

Give them the Time they Deserve, because these things cannot be

Put Off till ‘Some Other Time.’
