I am Stronger and Better than You!

Hope i am affixed in your memory. Or maybe i am mistaken. Because i ain’t the first milestone down your dingy dark alley. You’ve ”been there, done that” a dozen times haven’t you? Still, face me now. Here i am. Remember me? Yes you do. I am the one you verbally abused and manhandled today, another notch on your belt if i am not mistaken, another trophy in your filthy closet.

Why? Did my clothing provoke you? A pair of trousers and long sleeved shirts couldn’t be revealing, couldn’t have instigated you into behaving with such downright hawkishness. No.Can you defend your pugnaciousness? Can you provide sanctuary to your aggression? Is physical attraction so overwhelming that you lose all sense of being human? I remember the cold glint in your eyes as your gaze turned condescending and menacing, disdainful.

Did you like watching my eyes dilate with fear? Felt good right? A heavily built six feet something frame undoubtedly gave you the advantage to corner and scare me to death. But here’s something you need to know, i possess a strong muscle as well…my brain. And here i am. Telling you, i can’t be petrified. I can’t be silenced.

Karma. We all meet the fate we deserve. And somehow. someday, i will be avenged. And then you will wonder why you’d crossed the path with me.

Dear Arunima,

A very strong and clear message to the unknown molester(s) who are lurking around every now and then. It is so disgusting to even think,people still with such thoughts walking down every lane ,that a girl forgets to breathe freely while in public places too.

Iam sure, the conviction in every women and the confidence in her eyes,will keep those hands away from her for ever.

Dear Soumya, 

Thank you so much for reading and pouring your thoughts....fuels me to bring up such issues to the core which are otherwise kept under wraps out of fear. We have to find our voice and courage to stand up against such elements. 

Love and Respect
