Is this emancipation of Indian women?While returning from Office, I just witnessed an incident. A working girl of around 25 or so rudely demanded a seat from an aged person, who was obviously unwell. Although the bus was crowded, it was an AC bus and the old man was seating in a general seat (not reserved). When I protested on behalf of the old man, the girl stated that she was having difficulty in standing, so she needed the seat. Ultimately another man offered his seat to the ailing old man.
Around 4 years ago, I had returned to Delhi after overnight journey by bus. I started for office by metro, took a general seat and being very tired was feeling sleepy. After some time, a lady boarded the metro and demanded the seat in an extremely rude manner. I gave her the seat but throughout the journey by metro, I was feeling very unwell because the lady woke me up suddenly from deep sleep.
Are these two cases examples of emancipation of Indian women? What do other Members of ISC think in this regard?
