Metro travels have always been known to be the best conversation spots. There are so many interesting tales we all have heard for sure. Some incidents have been the cause of a few suspensions and some other snooze moments offering humour.
But what we chanced upon today beats all that hollow. How one Dyuti Sudipta caught one such conversation…
Goes to prove that at least somewhere men are jealous of women and their privileges.
Here’s how it went:
Overheard in Metro
Guy 1: Look, the ladies coach is completely empty. This side is so full, still we aren’t allowed to go and sit there.
Guy 2: Yeah, man. Look, they’ve been given an entire coach, which doesn’t get full, plus two seats in every one of ‘our’ coaches. If we sit on those too, we are made to get up – even if the entire ladies coach is empty.
Badass Aunty: That’s because you are not letting them be born, beta. And, if somehow they are, you are doing everything in your power to stop them from studying, working, going out. Why don’t you stop all this – killing them in the womb, confining them to role of child bearers, curbing their movements and freedom. Then see, how they fill not just metro seats, but office spaces, sport fields and everywhere else. But then, that’s exactly what you’re scared of, beta. Aren’t you?
