Touchy!

I’m from Bangalore,India.This is what happened to me a week ago…

I got onto the bus and found myself an empty seat. I sat by the window and put my bag next to me. I was in a good mood and sleepy. The BMTC buses have ladies seats in front of the bus(about 4 rows) and the rest are for men(about 10 rows)..an injustice thats beyond my power to rectify! Anyhow..so I’m sitting in a Ladies seat and suddenly this huge man comes and sits right next to me. The bus is quite empty and he still sits next to me! When there r plenty of seats available. Still my bag prevented any body contact. Soon he asked me to remove my bag so that he can sit properly…I said why don’t u go behind? He’s like..No I’m comfortable here…and kept looking in front…so I thought maybe he’s sick and will get off soon…But was still uneasy and got strange(bad)vibes from him. Keeping the bag on my lap I bought popcorn and munched to prevent myself from falling asleep…

I was looking outside the window and suddenly I felt something warm on the side of my right thigh. He had been sitting with a package on his lap and his hand were hidden below it..and it cut off my vision..I didn’t want to be haste so I slowly moved my thigh and was shocked to see his thick fingers touching my thigh! I mean what the fuck did he get out of it? I yelled ” Why you touching me!??” and he got so scared and shifted with half his ass still on my seat! I said “what’s wrong with you??” He literally jumped and sat opposite staring at me with a frightened look and scared eyes. He sat next to another girl. I was seething with rage..I shook my head and looked away. Then I turned back to yell at him..before he did something to her.. // <![CDATA[

I was so angry…I dunno if he was crazy or his first time! But perverts like him need to be put in their place. I think I was more upset with myself than him! Cause I let him sit next to me!!! So much for being polite! Gosh…hate myself for doing that but at least I embarrassed the shit out of him.\n

Another incident..well it happens almost everyday…autorickshaw drivers and other strangers who just STARE\n AT U..for no reason just stare!!! iTS so buging…just because I\’m a girl doesnt give them a right to stare and make ME shift my glance.So I\’ve started to show gestures. Like I say what? whit my hands..and shrug my shoulders…and point at them..and say what u staring at. Some look away..and some laugh! man…its silly but at least They\’ll think twice before oggling!!\n

    I’m glad you did that Rohini. Most men get away with it because we don’t speak up enough.
