Okay I have been accused that I am not evolved* on the blank noise project
by one such blogger.Okay, I am feeling like Prem Chopra now :-)))
I realise that the intentions of the project are noble.
But when it comes to "staring" I differ.
Let me clarify folks, by "eve teasing" I exclusively referred to "staring" of people NOT any other physical contact or some kind of harassment.
Staring can be caused because of many cases.These are the following :-
a) "Staree Z" wants a "Starer X" to notice.
And some other "Starer Y" else notices and passes a remark to Z causing mental torture to Z.
Whose mistake is it ?
b) "Staree Z" doesnt want "Starer Y" to notice
There are two cases here :-
Case 1 : If Y is a daydreamer who is in the perpetual habit of staring things while getting lost in thought, and his intention was not to cause discomfort, it is not his mistake
Case 2: If Y purposefully wanted to stare, which may be some kind of offense (yes I completely agree with it).However, here everything depends on the way a Staree handles her/him in this situation. I like analogies. To give an analogy here :-
You have a diamond necklace you want to wear to a party which catches immediate attention.There are 10 robbers on the road who will snatch it if they see it. It is your responsibility to either wear a sweatshirt and walk across to the party or take a gamble with the robbers.What will you do ? Will you make a propoganda to the robbers about your rights of wearing a diamond necklace? .
I may sound caustic, but it is the truth.
*Note 1 : On a lighter side, Speaking of evolution, We call apes as "apes".But just stop and think who evolved from whom and who is aping whom ?
*Note 2 : On a lighter side, Pink Floyd's lyrics like this will be meaningless :-
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me.
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand
The best I can.
