I`ve been reading some really scary things happening to women in what was my city for a long time. Read about them here. This is really disheartening; I grew to love Bangalore as much as my hometown of Bombay. Both of these were relatively safe cities for me and this is a rare thing in India when you are a woman. You can read about a few of the incidents that happened in this post.
The Consortium of Pubgoing, Loose and Forward Women, which I am quite proudly and naturally part of, is along with many others organising protests and actions. I wish I could be there helping out in some way, fighting back, doing my bit to keep a city I love safe, but I can`t. I`m stuck in Bristol and it will be a while before I will be back.
But there are those of you who are in a position to, so get involved! Do something!
