Exposure of body parts does provoke reaction among people both men or women. Now the only question is how people react to this? Many will be surprised, in a sense of shock/embarrassment and some may even enjoy the proceedings. A few really go out of control. Mostly it is men in this case, I accept it completely, but at the same time we need to accept the fact that this arrogance or like most of you call the "need to exercise power over women" is present in varying levels in men, thats a natural trait of being a man. If it is in minimal/optimal level the society may tag him as gentleman, if this arrogance is absent then the society may turn the tables and ask him "are you a man?"

Finally we have men who have this arrogance in extreme level - criminals/rapists etc. If a women goes in front of such sick men with a low neck top (Rakhi Sawant sHtyle) exposing cleavage deliberately or wearing a tight fit low hip pants is definitely inviting for trouble. It is a sick behaviour to misbehave with women, like I said in the previous post. These people are sick and they need treatment. It is a fact that we have a lot of sick people like these in our society. So how will you deal with it? The best possible way in my opinion will be to be safe than sorry. For the sake of these sick people we cannot blame the entire male gender as unfair right? I will never say all men are good or all women are good. There is an animal in each one of us, some tame it politely and some express it arrogantly.
Yes! In India we have a patriarchal society. Its a fact lets accept it. Because that is how it has evolved for the past couple of centuries. And now we are slowly trying to adapt a more neutral society, and it will be good if our society gives way for these new thoughts and new outlook towards women. If we look into the facts we can find that this adaptation is happening only in cities and that too not completely. Now for this neutral society to evolve, it will take a lot of time, may be generations. All of a sudden you can't blame that men in India are not giving freedom to women! A good civilized society is what we require and for that to evolve education needs to be our top priority.
Our society has definitely changed a lot, from the days when we had the cruel ritual of "Sati Pratha" to the present day where women have become Astronauts, President or Top Bureaucrats. But the change is limited only to a few section of society. We are in the transition period, don't expect all our men to behave like "good" English men, its quite impossible all of a sudden.
Thats all I have to say on this. Please keep the comments pouring in! I know like the previous post I will have a lot of criticism to take on this too :) bring it on people!
