It was a very horrifying experience. i don’t remember much of it because the incident was followed a mental break-down.
I was 19 years old and was staying with my cousin sister in Delhi for a summer training during my BTech.
My sister had gone for a wedding in the family with her two sons. I was left alone with a cousin brother and brother-in-law.  there was no other help in the house so I remember cooking for them every morning and evening, packing lunch boxes for myself and them, cleaning up the house and doing other household chores.
One night, my brother did not return home as he had some work in office. I remember sleeping with my glasses on the side of the pillow. I had poor vision and could not see much without my glasses. I remember that in the night someone pressed my mouth, opened my salwar and did something which made me faint. i have absolutely no memories left of that night. In the morning when i got up, i found myself alone, my glasses were broken, i was covered with a bedsheet but i wasn’t wearing my salwar. i was very terrified but somehow had the energy to gather myself, called my brother that i am leaving for bareilly to my parents. i reached the railway station somehow and waited for the next train. i got a train at 6 PM. i reached home late night. I didn’t had the mind to tell anything to my parents. I had a severe mental breakdown and my right side was paralysed. It took me around 6 months to recover. But the wounds the incident on my soul are irrepairable. Its only now that i spoke about it with my Aunty( dad’s sister)and my mother.
I am now 42 years old fairly strong and successful. i am separated from my husband and was in a relationship for almost 6 years. I have deep mistrust in men and find it difficult to trust their intentions.
