OR my much older cousins who would eye me differently than their own daughters …. OR the man who saw me at the hospital when I was born and 13 years later he thought it’s appropriate for him to touch my body because I was a growing teenager and my body had changed…. OR my tuition teacher who had his hands in my underpants… OR this another teacher, whom I tied Rakhi to, who would scold the female students in the class by pulling their bra straps and slapping on their breasts …. OR that man in the train station who gropes you… Why? Because you’re too young and scared to speak up. So scared that you can feel your stomach getting twisted inside and throat getting choked up… you don’t know how are you going to explain it to your parents or you’re too shy to utter a word to anyone… And then you start developing that deep rooted hatred towards men… Because you know they’re the culprit who made you feel this way… That disgusting, twisted feeling inside which takes years to overcome… I’m happy to be another voice joining this movement and make people realise that I was not spared either. But TODAY I will rip apart any man who even remotely tries anything on me. I AM PROUD OF WHO I AM. (sic)” The caption of her post read.
