Save Indian Society from the Evil of Eve-teasing

Posted: अप्रैल 27, 2013 in Uncategorized

Eve teasing is a euphemism used in India and sometimes Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal for public sexual harassment or molestation of women by men, with use of the word “Eve” being a reference to the biblical Eve, the first woman. It implies that the woman is in some way responsible for the behaviour of the perpetrators of this act. Considered a problem related to delinquency in youth, it is a form of sexual aggression that ranges in severity from sexually suggestive remarks, brushing in public places and catcalls to outright groping. Sometimes it is referred to with a coy suggestion of innocent fun, making it appear innocuous with no resulting liability on the part of the perpetrator. Sexual harassment by strangers, as with any type of harassment, has been a notoriously difficult crime to prove, as perpetrators often devise ingenious ways to harass women, even though eve teasing usually occurs in public places, streets, and public transport. Some feminist writers claim that this behaviour is a kind of “little rape”.

Eve-teasing is a very common in India. Almost every young girl is a victim of teasing, especially by the local boys. Most of the people avoid it as a common matter . Yes, it is. But it is not every time. It can’t be tolerated by every girl. But when it crosses limit, it becomes a serious problem. It is a social problem. It may girls to commit suicide to safe themselves from eve-teasing.

This is against the women rights without any doubt. Those who do this kind of embarrass and brutal stuff, they can’t be named as human being. Eve teasing is everywhere in schools, colleges, shopping malls, hotels or public places, when teasers see girls they start teasing with ribald comments, smutty jokes, coarse laughter, sly whistles and even indecent exposure. In most of the cases, the victims shy to exposes these incidents.

Negative effects of Eve-teasing:

Family, society and of course, the country have greatly effectted by eve teasing. The demerits of eve-teasing are very clear to us. Recently one Mother was killed to save her daughter from the eve- teasers. This is a real shame. Many of Girls feel insecure to go out from their home. Thats why birth rate of girls decreasg day by day. Not only this, the victim girl may lose his mental balance. In most cases, girls are letting married in an early age. This underage marriage problem is also increasing by this eve- teasing problem and effect their future. Basically the rate of illiterate people is decreasing but even after all teasing is not stopping. This illiteracy is a curse in this era. If the girls are getting married in an early age, they will probably having more babies, which will make the population problem destructive. So in a sense, it can be said that Eve-teasing may create more problems beyond our expectation. The eve teasers are becoming more dangerous. They are willingly doing all these and asking hazards in society. Most of the social problems related to women increased because of these criminal minds.


There is a need of implications of laws that can directly make an effect on this.

Eve-teasers should be treated as major criminals as their acts cause educational, social insecurity to girls.

Girls and women should take strong action to teach a lesson to these criminals and public should be with them.

It should become social movement so that we can save our FAMILY, SOCITY and NATION from this evil.

We further urge students, scholars, academicians, social workers, human rights defenders and women organisations to join in this effort to persuade the government of India to acknowledge and honor the call of this petition.

Be with us in this movement and kindly sign the petition online on the link given below for this noble cause:


Casteism, Social Security and Violation of Human Rights

“Slavery does not merely mean a legalised form of subjection. It means a state of society in which some men are forced to accept from others the purposes which control their conduct.”-Dr.B.R.Ambedkar

The consciousness of social security comes to a man when he feels that he is getting his basic rights. Human Rights are related to those rights which are related to man’s life, freedom, equality and self-esteem, are established by Indian constitution or universal declaration of human rights and implemented by Indian judiciary system. In other words, “Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, color, religion, language, or any other status.” We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. But we when come the present conditions of Indian society, it is painful to say we find lots of discrimination and violations of human rights is a common problem.

Human Rights Defenders are working since then we have not the concept of human rights in our life. They are working on a range of issues including caste discrimination, domestic violence, social justice, women issues, child abuse and trade attack from both the state and other interests. But the problem is here to consider that those who are discussing or working on the Human Rights issues, are being tortured by the false cases and sometime they also murdered as we are continually receive these types of news from media.  Their social security, freedom also suppressed by the authorities. The government imposed increases administrative restrictions on human rights organizations. By all this the first step to fight for justice interrupted and the real conception of justice become only theoretical interpretation. It is a good point to consider that for a good society and for a just nation, we should think upon all these issues so that we can live in such a place where we can realise the sense of freedom, equality and brotherhood. For all this we need to think seriously upon caste issues, human rights, terrorism, child and women issues, only then we can have a fruitful outlook for social problems. Universal peace presupposes social justice, equality, fraternity and love for humanity. Unfortunately, human selfishness and ego overwhelm the human mind causing destructive and dangerous consequences to peaceful existence of humans.

We can say that have the option to choose a better world. Why not we think to work for our fellow beings and deal these issues with a rational systematic manner. It is a reality that India is going through a difficult time of regionalism, communalism, religious fundamentalism, caste prejudices and gender discrimination and these evils are deeply rooted in our society.

Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was a Bengali poet, philosopher, artist, playwright, composer and novelist. India’s first Nobel laureate, Tagore won the 1913 Nobel Prize for Literature. He composed the text of both India’s and Bangladesh’s respective national anthems. Tagore travelled widely and was friends with many notable 20th century figures such as William Butler Yeats, H.G. Wells, Ezra Pound, and Albert Einstein. While he supported Indian Independence, he often had tactical disagreements with Gandhi (at one point talking him out of a fast to the death). His body of literature is deeply sympathetic for the poor and upholds universal humanistic values. His poetry drew from traditional Vaisnava folk lyrics and was often deeply mystical.
