    Your comments invited:

    - Eve teasing: How big of a problem is it?
    - What are its social-psychological roots? What, if anything, should be done to deal with it?
    - Has India finally woken up to this 'problem', in light of the public indignation over the Keenan-Santos - Reuben Fernandez murders?
    - What will be the legislative and social implications of the new public outrage?


    For the uninitiated:

    Eve teasing is a monicker used in India for the public sexual or sexually suggestive harassment of women by men or their molestation or assault. It is considered a problem related to delinquency in youth and a form of sexual aggression that ranges in severity from sexually suggestive remarks, brushing in public places and catcalls to outright groping.

    When man doesn't get his satisfaction due to conservative society then he indulges in other means.

    Taking a stand will solve nothing since active today, gone tomorrow.

    Didn't all see the Enough is Enough posters and candlelight vigils and all those aping the West antics?

    What is required is making filing FIR easier without harassment, police following up such cases quickly and diligently and the Judges giving exemplary punishment through fast track courts!

    All this is easier said than done though.

    For example do you know how many false accusations of rape there are in courts ? girls shout rape to get even with boys for various reasons, not all rape cases are genuine and number of judges are not enough to handle the number of cases. Do you know that everyday hundreds if not thousands of cases are registered. it is humanely impossible to hear them all within a day...and this is how cases pile up one after another.

    Last i heard in delhi there are 30 or so judges and see population is nearly 2 crore, so there is 1 judge per 66 lakh people. So even if 1% of them file cases then its 66000 cases for 1 judge. How can there be fast track judgements on that ratio ?

    Lodging an fir is not a complicated process...rather its the cops who create problems instead of the system per se.

    In Muslim society, young boys get the brunt of that indulgement. :-( To the credit of Indian men, they maintain an attraction to the opposite sex.

    That is the point. Try lodging an FIR. That is why I have stated in the post that there should be no harassment while lodging FIRs.

    I have said Fast Track Courts thereafter.

    Fast track courts means there has to be more Judges and the lower courts can be increased.

    It is obvious that all this can take place if the Police are made accountable and time bound in their enquiry. False cases will naturally get left by the wayside.
