I love my work and thus I don’t tend to leave office early. Sometimes it becomes real late and despite my company offering me cab services or sometimes asking me to leave early I tend to take the train home. There has never been an incident before but this time it nearly scared me out of my wits.
India is a country where uneducated people not only don’t have basic value for another human life but also refuse to understand situations and treat others humanly.
At 9:30pm which usually isnt so late a group of 6 teens blocked the way of a bridge at Khar station that leads to the train platform. I watched my train arrive at the station and tried to make my way off the bridge but the bloody boys wouldn’t move and mind you there was a girl hanging with them too.
I pushed both the boys and quickly got down to the platform and waited for the train to stop. That 1 entire minute that it took for the train to stop for me to board and the train to take off, the group began abusing teasingly at me.
“Hey Bitch” “Hey asshole” “Hey fucker” “Fuck you”. While men repeated fuck you and asshole, the girl shout out hey bitch tauntingly every single second.
Annoyed I showed them my middle finger and said fuck off and got into the train. They still kept abusing till the train left the platform. I mean WTF INDIA?
The policeman in the compartment did not even say anything when he noticed. Nobody said anything. This makes me so scared!
I wanted to punch those people and what if I did, who would protect me? Bunch of losers who got nothing to do all day annoy hard working people who need to get home from a long day of work.
I felt really bad too with the abuses. I felt like it wouldn’t stop. It made me so angry that people like these never really reach anywhere in life and then hurt others for no reason on their way to non – existance!
I kept telling myself not to rethink the situation and feel traumatised because that would mean that they won so I wrote this down.
I hope all those people who have faced smiliar situations around the world don’t get affected by speckles of nothing like those people. I hope you stay strong, forget the bad and keep working and keep going because you should make it out unlike others like them.
Until the next blog!
