To Molest or Not

Recent news made me learn a new word. I thought it was called just feeling it up. I also thought it was foreplay. The media now screams molestation.

It was 9.30 PM. I saw her then. She was standing near a footpath and talking over phone. Her shrug had just moved away revealing a bit of her neckline. She was young, dainty and wearing strapless. I was in heat. I walked past her. She looked tired and easy. I walked behind her and groped her back. She screamed out loud and ran off. Ha, the pleasure of seeing a girl run walk away. Unparalleled.

It was 9.30 PM. I saw her then. She was waiting for a bus. I knew her bus route and walked close to her. She was on a call and slightly looked up to see me. Her shrug slipped and I saw her strapless dress. I was in heat. I walked past her. She looked inviting. I walked behind her and groped her back. She held my hand and screamed loud. I ran away after pushing her off the road. Ha, the pleasure of seeing a girl scream for help. Unparalleled.

It was 9.30 PM. I saw her then. She was standing in a bus.  She looked up at me and saw my eyes. I did not like it. I glanced at her chest. She looked back at my eyes.  This time, with furious anger. Her shrug slipped and she glanced at me when I saw her strapless dress. I was in heat. I walked past her. She seemed bold. I walked behind her and groped her back. She held my hand and kicked my knees. I fell down flat.

Ha, the power of anger. She exclaimed.

It is no rarity to be stared, touched, and groped. It takes pepper sprays, safety pins and lots of anger to hit back. It takes boldness to talk about it and scream. It takes conditioning to know it is not okay and it not acceptable to be touched by someone.I strongly believe anger and boldness is the strongest weapon a woman should possess.

  4. True that. It surely needs a lot of courage to fight back.

  10. Its time that women give it back - men should realise that women who smoke and drink can also kick their ass hard

  11. Extremely well written! One could give a million speeches and not achieve what you have achieved with the imagery of your words in the three three instances. Loved it!

  12. I could feel the anger and power of that girl, in me while reading this post.. very well written Arch.. I could relate myself to the incidents you have mentioned.. nothing can help except for strength and anger! Sometimes.. I feel the anger raging in me, what I lack is the strength to fight back.. for these animals (in the form of perverts) are too many.

  13. could actually visualize the story.. a very good narrative and yes I do agree that in such a case anger is the weapon..

  14. Can't agree more ! Those are the best weapons a woman can be armed with. Pepper sprays and safety pins don't quite as much do justice.
    Kicking in the groin does.
