One-on-One With Delhi Police, and Weird Cheesy Guys

For the first time in my life I actually complained about eve teasing and action was taken there and then.

Whole of Lakshya was travelling back from North to our college in two cars, Priyams' and Hibas'. Hiba being the slow one was far behind, so we were actually quite taken aback when she came zooming to overtake us. The race went fine till we noticed this Indica with weird cheesy guys following us. They parked just outside the petrol pump where we'd stopped to re-fuel the car, and resumed their drive right after ours. Not giving much attention to them , we continued our race. Apparently, they thought we were racing with them and they overtook us. Their indicator changed with ours on every red light from there on.

When we finally stopped outside college to grab some chhola-bhatura, they stopped too. Quite creepy. That's when I called the cops, who turned up withing 5minutes. (Impressive, isn't it??)
Well, turned out that the guys were "decent" boys from Hindu College, Delhi University, and were just having random fun. Random Fun. A car full of weird hooligan guys chasing a car full of girls is not exactly my idea of fun. We let them go after all the apologies that they made. They were too shocked by the whole incident. And quite frankly, I was too.

Men are such a menace. Education or no education, they're all the same. If not you, they'll be out there chasing some 100 other females. It's just so crazy.

Dogs. Hope they've learnt their lesson.

Messed Up Metro Ride!!

I'm now too sure about the fact that whenever I step out of my house, I'm all set to prove Murphy's Law!!!

I left from Gurgaon for college at 7.30, after spending yet another night out (2nd in the week!!) at a friend's place. I was planning to take a bus from CP to college, but ended up coming back home instead.

All was good till I reached Yamuna Bank Metro Station, where the idiotic Metro terminates. (I had already been pushed around way too much, so calling it 'good' isn't really all that appropriate. But on second thoughts, it was much better than what was going to happen next!!) So to get home, I needed to take another one. My chappal broke as soon as I got out of the first Metro.
Worse, I fell down!! Gathering all my belongings together, I rushed to the platform, with my one chappal in one hand, my bag and cell phone in the other, yellow socks in one feet, and yellow socks with black chappal in the other. Quite messed up, I know!

I stood next to the wrong side when the station came (Ok This really wasn't my fault. How the hell was I supposed to concentrate when so much was happening??). Again came the pushing bit, just that this time I was pushing everyone who came in my way. I took off my socks and kept them in my bag. (They're new, and I love them. :P). And my chappals were in my hand. I obviously had all eyes glued to me, all trying to figure out why would a girl walk barefoot on an early cold winter morning, that too at the Metro station!!
Horrible way to start the day!!
I can only it gets better, after all I have Lakshya later. :P

"....."

24th October,
9.30 am

अनचाही राहों में
बस तेरी बाहों में
चले हम जा रहे
उम्मीद लिए निगाहों में

कुछ है शिकवा
थोडी हैं शिकायतें
पर अब चाह कर भी नहीं रुक सकते
चाहे कितनी हो हिदायतें

सोच कर की क्या बीत चुकी है
शायद कहीं हम ठहर जाएँ
पर फिर आगे बढ ही गए
चाहे कोई कहर ढाए

जो होना था वोह हो ही गया
क्या करें अब यूँ सर झुकाए
शायद इसी लम्हे को याद कर के
कल गम में भी हम मुस्कुराएँ

:) ??
