Eve teasing can be compared to an evil game which only heartless, mindless, demonic people can play. Sadly, the number of cases of eve teasing shows how many demons are living among us, making it a hell for many of us.
I am sorry to mention it again, but I have myself been a witness of such a scene where an innocent girl was eve teased and almost harassed by two drunk guys accompanied by one of elder brother's friends. I was a child by then and had taken the shortcut way to home as I was returning from market. That was when I met one of the classmates of my elder bro on the way. He had his two friends with him who were drunk at the daytime. Innocently, I chose to ignore these two unknown guys and say Hi to my brother's friend . Soon, we found a girl who had also taken the shortcut way and was just walking in front of us. In no time, these two guys started passing cheap comments on the girl. At first, even I thought they are drunk and should be left with whatever madness they do. But then, they stopped the girl on her way and started making further comments on her. That was when I had crossed my temper, and I really wanted my bro's friend to interrupt and stop his ill mannered friends right then, but he seemed to stay mute no matter how many times I insisted him to do something. Wasting no more time, I entered into the scene myself and acting friendly to the drunk guys I suggested them to shut up and let the girl go, to which they agreed. Deep down, I was full of anger, yet limited within myself because this was something I had witnessed for the first time. I was a little child who was in shock to witness an innocent girl who was humiliated into tears right in front of my eyes. I really wanted to meet the girl again and ask her if she was okay... but she had ran away and after that day I never found her again. Once she was gone, I shouted on him and pushed the drunk guys to harm them but I was clueless of what exactly should have been done. I had not dealt with such a situation before. In half anger and half guilt, I moved towards my home. My mother was able to read my expressions full of anger, but all I told her was that one of brother's classmate was roaming in the market, totally drunk and using foul language. I even told my brother to not keep friendship with such a guy. The time passed, but after all these years, I still feel sad of the girl who had to go through all the bad behavior she never deserved. I have forgot the girl's face, but that incident still feels as if just happening now, live in front of my eyes. I really wish to forget it, but the regret of not being able to do much 'that day' keeps me to remember this even after this long time. I can also understand that if I can remember it for all these years, how suffering that scene may have been for the girl who had suffered it.
It was just one incident where the 'loafer guys' were drunk and misbehaving with a girl, but even those who are in their senses and belong to well respected families also tend to pass unnecessary comments on every girl. I do not support any response or excuse whatsoever which states eve teasing as a response of attraction or infatuation. I believe, eve-teasing is a kind of mental illness where the sick patient finds it cheerful, fun and 'winning' to make a girl hear their ugly remarks on her. They find it fun- How sad it that.
Today, the individuals of society have become pretty digesting and compromising from nature. When such scenes happen, they might feel bad, but then they let it go... Why? Perhaps it is so because the girl who was harassed was not their daughter, girlfriend, sister or relative.
No girl deserves this. No person has a right to disrespect any girl like this.
How bad and sad is it that many of us don't wish to create a scene, so we let the scene happen.
