On Short Skirts In Crowded Kolkata Buses

Rimi lists down the much ignored but extremely trying travails of the somewhat sensitive Calcutta commuter -

The Culture Squad, Ranters, Sympathic Aunties. The confrontational "Why is your skirt so short?", the fakely sweet "Do you NEVER wear salwaar kurtas?", people who talk too loudly, people who will insist on telling you everything about themselves and people who assume you must be a miserable wretch and ask you unburden on them.
- and also mentions in passing that she has had men try to jerk off against her in a crowded bus.

One question though - why wear a short skirt in a crowded bus in Kolkata? Short skirt? Crowded bus? Kolkata? Duh?

Not that I have anything against short skirts. In fact, I whole-heartedly approve of short skirts, especially when they are so short that the stilettos they are worn with are longer than them.

Wicked Meter Rating: 6/10.

What a delightful blog. All the more so, of course, for linking me ;-)

And no, darling, you don't allow for people's definitions of 'short'. the article of clothing under discussion was a knee-length school skirt. Which I wore for 10 straight years. See? Drop by again :-)
