This was the first time I put my foot in Chennai. I was 16 and I have come with dreams in my heart and was on my way to IITM for my first day first year of Engineering.

I was travelling with my dad and we were on a bus from Guindy to Adyar. I was not used to travelling by bus/local trains and that was probably my first time in a crowded bus. I felt a man (I didn’t see his face) who was trying to feel me from behind. At first, I thought it was unintentional since the bus was too crowded. But, all along the ride, he was trying to touch and feel me. Not that it would or should matter, but I was wearing a very loose salwaar kameez with a dupatta wrapped around me like a blanket.

It was the first time in Chennai and I was too scared. I felt abused and humiliated but I didn’t know better 9 years ago to make a scene then and there which I will do now god forbid such a situation arises again. It was the longest ride ever for I hated every second of it. I had it in my head all this while but I never let it affect me. Anyway, all the good things in life helped me move on.
