Was getting pissed with men standing in metro ladies carriage and then this 9 y/o-ish girl told them to fuck out, hehehehehe trust a #DelhiGirl :-p
Drunk asshole in pink t shirt tried to pick conversation with me few minutes ago, then I saw him fall down on the platform and he sat there for a while.
Now he's entered the ladies carriage, towards Kashmere Gate.

Yo @DCP_DelhiMetro, kem cho?
Wtf, 5 men entered ladies carriage together, sat on 5 seats and stared at me smiling when I told then to leave.

There's no security personnel at any Delhi metro station platform today and I've been through about 25 tonight.
@ Ladies, hate to say this but it's Saturday night, the men are out, they're drunk, they're in ladies carriages and they're not leaving.

And @DelhiPolice @DCP_DelhiMetro doesn't care for you.
I did 3 different metro lines tonight, nearly 30 metro stations... & I saw men in the women's carriages at all stations, and no metro guards at any platform.
Have been on the road since 6am, returning from Haryana for work, got on the metro in Delhi because traffic bad, phone dying, hungry, tired, weak... and yet can't even get home in peace because, this is my reality.
Yes family is worried.
Walking home from metro station and realise the road is blocked by a sausage-fest of bhakti.

Men in various stages of inebriation/ bhakthi, are between me and safety.
9/ Its killing me that some woman has probably been touched or stalked back home or something worse, tonight. Feeling like shit to think that.
10/ I was amused when this happened. By the time the 5 came in and didn't leave, I realised this was more than an indiscretion.
But who understands what this felt like except us.
11/ Can a woman not go to work and get back home safely in this country.
Yea okay I'm home, good night.
#Delhi #DelhiMetro
13/ It is unacceptable for men to be allowed to do #bhakthi at midnight, drunk, dancing, blocking road, and on to 2.30am (when I had made my 3rd complaint to @DelhiPolice and they shut the loudspeakers, I think).
14/ Police patrol guy said he shut them down once, but they clearly flouted, & I would have to make new complaint if I wanted him to come by again. It was around 2am by now.

When he shut their loudspeakers around 2.30am, he said they had permission to do "jagran" all night.
15/ Men being allowed to show their "jalwa" on the street, using God and Hinduism as a proxy, is a sexual-assault mosh-pit.

Kanwariyas? Holi? Not enough?

Who cares? @DelhiPolice @SwatiJaiHind
16/ Yea I got home in one piece physically last night (&many pieces mentally).
I didnt need to follow up with cops till 2.30am... but yet I did need to:

~Because women must be allowed to be on the street at any time of the night and day without fearing assault~
17/ One tweet to commemorate the drunk men in Haryana who were everywhere, including the village where I had gone for interviews (drunk by 5pm), then on the road, ramming into our car and picking fight with our driver.

Yea Im thankful to be here, tweeting to you from my bed.

Hi guys, some of you need to dissent/ decline wrt the #manels youve been put on, at the @skochgroup event
- @SkochSameer pls check.
- Guys on manels include @nitin_gadkari @ManishTewari @ashwani_mahajan @iam_anandv @prasanna_s @prasanto @nixxin @AnupamSaraph @pavanduggal + others
2. Does this reflect lack of #merit or prevalence of #sexism that @skochgroup has found only 4 women of worth, out of 46 speakers?

- The 4 women: @ShamikaRavi @rachnakhaira @navikakumar, Yamini Aiyar

- How are the 42 men feeling?
cc @SkochSameer @SreenivasanJain @ManishTewari
3. Today began with @skochgroup declaring that only 4 women were found #meritorious, to speak on tech.
But 42 men were worthy.
They celebrated this #inequality, with a full page ad in Indian Express.
