It was on Tuesday that Mehak Sabat experienced something that will send a chill down your spine. No, it’s nothing be proud of, rather it’s one of the reasons why we often find ourselves losing faith in humanity.
It was a routine day for Media professional Sabat. She was travelling in an auto-rickshaw when she felt something trickle down her leg. At first, she thought it was water. But later, she was shocked to discover that it was actually semen that had been thrown at her by some men.
What kind of a sick man throws his semen at women?! I don’t know if I am more angry or repulsed. Some of you men never fail to disappoint!

Sadly, the offenders had already escaped by the time Sabat looked up. She even posted an angry tweet about the incident.
She told HuffPost about how such incidents have also occurred in the past but not of this intensity.
“We raise our boys to be so entitled that they do not realize when they are crossing the lines,” she wrote in her email. “Having said that, there are a lot of decent men, but I wish they weren’t overshadowed because of depraved people like these.”
My friends and I were groped and molested by a bunch of kids at the Howrah Station in 2006-7 (I don’t remember the year properly) and at that point they had a small chowki inside the station. When I approached the police while the kids were busy molesting my friends, they told me they are on a break and could not attend to my needs right away. In the meantime a gentleman had come to our rescue and pushed them away. After around 10-15 minutes a policeman walked up to us and asked us about what had happened. When I told him that we were groped by a bunch of kids he laughed at us and told us that ragpickers in this station wouldn’t bother with such stuff. That he did not take us seriously was appalling. All this because our molesters were kids in the age group of 6-10 and we were older than them.
We’re with you on this Mehak, such incidents need to be taken much more seriously now that the rape count is increasing with every passing day.
