It has become a past time for men of all age and from all backgrounds to molest or rape women . In a crowded public place, public transport and ofcourse on lonely places.Tthis has become a menace and is growing uglier day by day.

I remember once when I was young and was travelling in a crowded minibus , seated cramped up at the back seat. two gentlemen sat on either side and on my left side an elderly gentleman was sitting hunched up and tightly clutching his briefcase on his chest. After some time I felt something hard pursing against my left breast and I tried in vain to move and thought it must be the edge of the briefcase and I looked down and found that the lousy old man was stealthily touching my breast with his fingers hidden from others behind his briefcase.

I always react instantly without giving a thought where I am ,and thankfully my stoppage was coming near. I looked at the man and shouted, It was your fingers that were touching me! I thought it was your briefcase. What a same, you old hag, doing such nasty thing in a crowded bus. I warn you, don't ever dare to do this in future. I said this because, both of us boarded the bus together from the starting point at our place in Lake

Then I looked around and saw pairs of disapproving eyes of the fellow male passengers on me, trying to say, how unladylike like and that too, to a elderly man; as all men tend to believe that women react on flimsy ground on touching them unintentional on a moving and crowded vehicle.

Then their disapproval turned to first disbelief and then to a glare when they looked at the gentleman in question. The lousy man was trying to pacify and silence me by gesticulating with putting  his fingers on his mouth. His fearful expression and begging eyes exposed it all.

But it was a good thirty years earlier. Now a days they do it  before all and if any girl try to object they just leer and jest or on worst case molest her farther.

Have you ever thought why the society is going down hill so fast.

I can only ask the girls, would be mothers and mothers to teach their sons to respect women. Even one boy tought  is a step forward

Flipkart evouchers are a sham!

Recently I received an e-voucher for INR 500 from for as a gift for a write-up. I was so happy and went to flipkart home page. I have been buying for for quite a long time and always found them prompt and easy to purchase.

But this e-voucher made me run from pillar to post in the web to buy something of my choice and always coming back to a stumbling block which says this voucher is only applicable to the WS retail seller. I wasted four days searching for WS Retail stores and then for something to buy with 500/-. It was such a frustrating experience that the joy of winning the e-voucher just vanished and I decided to forget about if. But then I came across an article which expressed exactly what I felt and I give below the link and also the a copy of the article just to warn my fellow bloggers not to fall into this trap.

But I must say the baggout people were very nice and have agreed to send me a cheque instead.

Flipkart eGift Voucher

Flipkart evouchers are a sham!

You might know the WS retail is flipkart’s own seller (flipkart itself). Flipkart evouchers/gifts are applicable only on product whose seller is WS retail. When a person goes to Flipkart to buy something, it is because there is a clear intent to buy something ( that item of interest). Or let us, for the sake of argument, say that a user might just browse the flipkart website to see if there are any good offers or something new has come up, which one might buy. So, we agree, irrespective of the which case one fits into, that it is the object or “thing” that one is focused on and not the seller who is gonna ship it to you.
With that case in mind here are the problems:
1. there is no way for a user to search for a particular product AND shipped by a particular seller. So what I have to do is look for a product and then go through each of the product description to see who the seller is. Coz’ if I want to use the flipkart gift card or evoucher I have to make sure that this particular product of interest is shipped by WS Retail. This is a pain.
2. By the time you go through all the product details to find that particular item shipped by WS retail in particular, one is fed up and forgets about the item of interest. And starts looking for a way to access all the items sold by WS Retail, perhaps one might find some items (that WS retail ships) that might of interest to him/her. But there is no way to browse all items by a particular seller. Again, a pain.
I wanted to buy a cycle helmet and a tupperware lunch box, both are available but not sold by WS retail. So I couldn’t user the flipkart voucher. Now I’m in the mode of searching anything sold by WS retail (even if it is of no use to me) to use the gift vouchers on.
It has been a terrible experience trying to redeem the “flipkart” evoucher on flipkart!! It would be fair to name it “WS Retail voucher”!! Flipkart evouchers are white elephants!
