their dastardliness was a regrettable but foregone conclusion The harassment of women is so common the conversation swings easily to how women can best protect themselves A series of unspoken “rules” have emerged dictating how women should navigate public spaces The first “rule” is that a woman in public must master the art of being “invisibly visible” That means to not cause offence or excitement with one’s dress; to cover up but knowing constantly that even the attempt to hide will be interpreted as an enticing invitation So what to wear Perhaps a burqa is safe But in candid conversation boys outside hospital revealed that in crowded places women in burqas were targetted for a squeeze “They just cry and run away” The next “rule” is knowing when to create a scene You can’t yell at every man who stares rudely at you; you “create a scene” only when you can exit it swiftly A woman who exposes a harasser herself stands exposed vulnerable to further harassment often from the same people eager to “rescue” her So I didn’t say much when on my daily commute on a public bus a man standing by the “laddis section” (the five seats reserved for women the rest of the bus for men) exposed himself inappropriately I looked away fuming wanting to yell But since my stop was an hour away I stayed quiet — because who knows what else would have come my way had I turned the attention of a busload of men upon me That’s the next “rule” Shouting angrily is exactly the wrong thing to do if you want to garner support A scene must always involve tears; the best revenge on patriarchy is to turn it upon itself A woman who seems strong doesn’t inspire sympathy But a woman who cries invokes much outraged largesse from a mob who will then beat a harasser to pulp (while the woman deftly exits the scene) Sometimes it’s better to report an incident to the authorities rather than handle it yourself Those times include moments when you feel even abduction is imminent; I did waiting for a bus outside my university One day a middle-aged moustachioed gentleman stopped his car insisting he’d drop me home “Dhoop main aap kaali ho jayengi” he coaxed most considerately I sternly declined The next day he stopped again revving his car in an attempt I believe to appear hip After two weeks of persistence and break-slamming I began to get alarmed (for his suspension and my safety) I alerted the university police who stopped his car He wasn’t seen again Some women say the best way to deal with a harasser is to be aggressive kick up a storm; these women are often privileged though and don’t navigate the public sphere unprotected If you do something aggressive like say break a window of a car in which the driver has been making kissing noises at you (like I did) protect yourself: Hide Camouflage your steps Ultimately harassment starts small: From leering to touching to groping to pushing to maiming to raping to killing To accept the first steps as “harmless” is to create a culture which allows a minority of offensive lecherous men to go unpunished Those who accept this behaviour are as complicit in the violence against women as active perpetrators of that violence Haider is a Pakistani author and satirist who has written the novel ‘How It Happened’ For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | Kolkata | Published: July 6 2017 1:06 am During clashes in Kalimpong on Wednesday Express Related News CLASHES BROKE out between GJM workers and police in Kalimpong district on Wednesday injuring six cops and three Morcha supporters as the indefinite shutdown in Darjeeling entered its 21st day Trouble arose when a rally by the GJM’s youth wing was crossing the local Trinamool office at 10th Mile area in the town around noon during which some agitators torched a vacant dilapidated building where the TMC office is located The Trinamool office is on the fourth floor of the building “Some agitators set fire to the ground floor of the building There was no one inside at that time The building mostly remains vacant” an eyewitness told The Indian Express Police and locals tried to douse the flames “The atmosphere became tense Some protesters started pelting stones Then the police retaliated with tear gas” said the eyewitness Following this the protesters became more agitated and stone-pelting increased Security personnel including policemen from the 10th battalion of the state armed police forces CRPF SSB RAF and the local police retaliated with rubber bullets The mob then set fire to the office of the North Bengal State Transport Corporation popularly known as the taxi stand in the area Following this police fired six rounds in the air and then took shelter at the local police station in Thanadara Morcha supporters then blocked all roads and continued their agitation Eyewitnesses said that when a policeman was attacked by the agitators locals in the area rescued him from the mob The two-and-a-half-hour agitation finally ended at around 230 pm when heavy rains lashed Kalimpong forcing the agitators to retreat Unconfirmed sources said that the three injured Morcha supporters were taken to a hospital in Sikkim as the GJM feared their arrests The injured policemen were taken to the Kalimpong district hospital Kalimpong which was earlier a sub-division of Darjeeling was declared a full-fledged district in February It is about 55 kms from Darjeeling Meanwhile all eyes are now focused on an all-party meeting scheduled on Thursday in Darjeeling to decide the next course of action even as dwindling food supply has put Hill residents in a precarious situation with the prospect of a severe food shortage staring at them The GJM and other Hill parties remained tight-lipped about Thursday’s meeting PTI reported In Kalimgpong Morcha supporters took out a rally at Chowk Bazar carrying the traditional ‘khukri’ and shouting slogans in support of a separate Gorkhaland state While Internet services remained suspended for the 18th consecutive day the police and security forces patrolled the streets of the Hills and kept a tight vigil at the entry and exit routes Except pharmacy all other shops restaurants hotels schools and colleges remained closed Boarding schools also extended their vacation because of the unrest For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | New Delhi | Updated: September 24 2016 2:21 pm The Army Chief has met the Prime Minister and top Prime Minister’s Office officials a number of times since the attack last Sunday in which 18 soldiers were killed (source: PTI) Top News The chiefs of the Army and the AirForce along with the Vice Chief of the Navy on Saturday met PrimeMinister Narendra Modi at his residence New Delhi?
