Why eve teasing? This might have started long back, possibly on a milder note as against now when it has assumed most aggressive an order. Earlier, if something of the kind of eve teasing was seen by the public, there was a spontaneous reaction as from the people and the lad concerned had to flee from the scene running away for his life. It is just different to-day. If a girl or a woman offers any resistance against the teasing at any public place or elsewhere, there is immediately an aggressive re-action from the side of the boy or the man concerned. It becomes a virtual physical assault. The passers by avoid interfering for the fear that they also might be targeted for the similar assault by those involved in the ill act. Popular places for the mischief mongers are the colleges, universities and the markets
Who are the eve teasers? Are they not the people who have their own sisters or daughters at their home; and if they are as such, why can’t they realise that as they would never like their sisters and daughters ill teased, they must themselves refrain from doing such things equally with others also. The girls and the women, to some extent, are themselves responsible for such happenings. Many of them are awe fully fond of wearing most provocative a dress and this phenomenon prompts the mischief mongers more in their ill conceived moves. Law and order situation in a country like India is too bad and there are no recognisable avenues available in practical terms to the victims of eve teasing. In such circumstances, wise it is on the part of the women to dress themselves up in a moderately normal manner to overcome the chase by the ill doers.
