Tied and tested

Irony comes handy in our local trains. Recently, a college girl had to get into a general compartment—which she usually doesn't do for obvious reasons—as she was running late for her lectures in Matunga. The train was way too crowded and she found it difficult to find herself a comfortable place to even stand. In the mix of it, she felt something groping her back. Quick to react, she caught hold of the hand and squeezed it so hard that the guy was startled and made his way out at the very next station. She had three more stations to go. And while she was waiting, she couldn't help wonder how can a hand decorated with multiple rakhis could attempt such a disgraceful act.
