Oh yeah, the guys who keep staring at you. Haha, I remember I was with my mom, some one or the other always used to stare at her....the trick was to give them an intimidating look that says "I will
off if you look at her again"; Basically to let the person know that I am aware of him staring at my mom. Believe me, it worked.
I am not sure if that works...... its india..... ogling in common...desis come here and ogle atblondes.and abcd's.
so you cant do much..they might misinterpret nasty looks for sexy..and chase you further
so eye contact should be avoided but if they whistle tor do something like that.. the girls have the girl power.. turning around and trying to take out the sandals or asking "ghar main maa behen nahi hai kya" is the most intimidating thing for that guy in public who might just run away.. no guy wants to be mob lynched and beaten with sandals.. This works in mumbai pune... not sure if it works in jaunpur, patna or delhi..etc whererowdyism for some is a life-style...
Rowdyism is not a lifestyle in Delhi
And it works!
My mom usually ignores their stares, but I can't tolerate them looking at my mom, who's married with to kids. I keep looking at them till they realize that I am aware of who they are looking at am look away
And you say it's India as if India is the root of all common social ills. Remember you're Indian too, and India has just as many good things as bad, being one of the 2 countries who's GDP went up during the recent recession, and the rate of advancement after independence has been remarkable, certain better than America's. You can't be judging the whole country based on what some people who haven't been taught etiquette and courtesy.
First all I said some people have that life-sytle.
. I dont know now but delhi was the eve-teasing capital of india..
Regarding the nasty stares... unless you are 6', 300 lb baby khali.. they wont care..
if you have the physique its really indimidating.. but even a midget girl could scare them with her angry outburst...Its true that how you carry yourself does matter.. my heght and physique had kept pickpockters away.. I have slapped some eveteasers .for staring at my gf..people keep a distance before getting into physical conflict even if I havent hurt a fly as suc.h..and scared as hell of roaches.. i actually run away from them while my gf did the battling part...
For the rest of your post.. I love india.. whichever state - in whatever state... I have travelled to Delhi, Calcutta, TN, Karnataka, chattisgarh, , gujarat, garhwals and have felt at home wherever I was.... if you travel lengths and breadths of india.. you will know the reason for the pride that one could feel as Indian not the GDP and nuclear programs or $$ rate...yeah its poverty , lack of education and corrupt systems would nt change how women at large will be treated and teh intimidation they feel while travelling back from US/UK...etc.
.Ignoring is hte best way to handle this.. I would think
