One day, me and two of my other friends were walking home from school. It was on the highway that two boys on motorcycles started to follow us. We decided not to retaliate and keep moving. Ignoring them did not work and they just got more lewd and it made us very uncomfortable and insecure.
I decided to act back. I shouted at them and told them not to harass us. They laughed and thought I was joking, it was only when I hurled my slippers(‘juttiyan’) at them that they went away.
I went home and told my parents about it and not surprisingly, they blamed it all on me and my friends. It is my request to everyone reading this to not blame victims and instead pick on the culprits.
