There’s so much conversation about the Bengaluru mass molestation – ranging from the ridiculous statements by politicians to “Well what else can you expect from a drunk crowd?”.

It’s not just this incident – there’s been a wave of sexist statements that just don’t have a place today, in 2017. And the idea that these kind of ideas are still propagated makes me really mad. And when I’m angry, I write.

And so I wrote a poem”

A debate about the Bengaluru mass molestation incident took another turn when the hashtag #NotAllMen became viral. A few men started off by saying that all men are not molesters. When an important issue was being raised, giving clear character certificate isn’t enough.
