Ananya was on her way from college to home. She was waiting for her train at Dadar station but unfortunately her train was cancelled. It was already 12 noon and she wanted to reach home by 1 pm so that she could have lunch and reach for her classes at 2 pm. She had exams on the same day and was tensed. Ananya was so tensed that she was reading even while walking, yes a taxi driver, few vegetable vendors and office goers did shout at her, called her blind, but Ananya was completely determined to come first.
Ananya was walking towards the bus stop in the same way i.e. by reading continuously. She may have been just a couple of mins away from the bus stop, when she heard two street mawalis pass lecherous comments on her. Initially she decided to ignore, just cursed them under her breath and was busy studying. They mistook her silence for encouragement. There was another gentleman at the bus stop, who was busy reading his Economic Times, when all this was happening. They thought that as there only person at the bus stop, she was helpless.
One of them dared to come ahead and started misbehaving with her. He held her hand and pulled her towards him. When she tried hard to resist him and fight back, simultaneously she also begged the other gentleman to help her but he was just standing there quietly busy in his newspaper as if nothing is happening around. When the other person at the bus stop was just ignoring her, it encouraged those two mawalis even more. In the fight, when the Mawali’s could not drag her to the secluded corner, they just hit her head hard against the wall.
