You stealthy, hungry, compulsive groper, you! ‘Kaate nahi katati yeh din yeh raat, jab tak nahin rakhta hoon tum pe haath…’
Running empires, having the world at your beck and call but unable to control your primal impulse. How does that make you feel?
When you reach out to grope someone’s ass or push someone into a corner using your position of authority, does it make you feel good?
Does it make you feel good to enter a party knowing that a room full of people dislike you for having ‘submitted’ but haven’t found the courage to kick you where it hurts, yet?
Does it make you feel good to know that men and women alike talk about you in hushed whispers and no … it’s not about your sexual prowess.
When you fall from grace and people call you out for the creep you are … does that still make you feel good?
This ripple effect thing has really got the ‘house of cards’ in a free fall and its fascinating to watch the wide variety of so called respected leaders and influencers (as of now, the entertainment industry in LA plus one ex-president of the USA) being stripped naked. As more and more people realise that it’s safe to speak up, that their voices will not be dismissed with a chuckle, that they will not be made to feel smaller than they already do … the ripple effect will continue outwards … it may even infect the Indian sub-continent with this rampant virus of ‘Baja bajaana’.
Eventually, you may end up feeling not so good … but then you have it coming. You ‘asked’ for it and as is the norm … what goes around …. eventually, comes around.
Mother of the woman who had the courage to stand up and speak before the world. Judgement be damned.
