    dandaroy got a reaction from UrmiSinhaRay in #MeToo India 2.0   
    Details please. What kind of abuse from each of them. I know Big B has had numerous affairs during his time, but sexual abuse allegations?
     
    We are interested in sexual abuse / harassment / assault issues, NOT consensual relationship, illicit or otherwise, or one night stands or having sex with paid call girls, etc.

    There is a big difference between being a difficult woman to have a relationship with and sexually assaulting / harassing someone.

    Writer and socialist Shobha De said on interview that the folks that are being outed as small fishes. The big fishes will still remain in power and continue to abuse. I want to know who the big fishes are? @UrmiSinhaRay what does your uncle say?
     
    We know Subhash Ghai is one, who else?

    You can’t say that with certainty unless you have first hand knowledge.

    Men are pigs in general. At least, a considerable number of them. On top of them men in powerful positions have a sense of entitlement. And then Indian society is extremely patriarchal. So this is hardly surprising. I am glad this is coming out in the open and hope that the perpetrators are outed.

    dandaroy reacted to Mariyam in Navjot Sidhu demeans South India. Says travelling to Pakistan is a better experience than travelling to South India   
    You'd be surprised that these views are just as prevalent among the lower classes ( economically and socially) too. Most of the times, their work lives are inter twined with those of people from other back grounds. And the women have to work in urban settings to pay for the bills. For eg, In the olderl chawl areas of Mumbai you'd find a migrant from Tamil Nadu speaking Hindi, Bambaiya Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati and his mother tongue inter-changeably. In such places caste/ regional boundaries don't mean much. If anything its the lower middle class and the middle class which is more conservative/puritanical.

    Again, I felt uncomfortable making that post as I am not at all clanish. I am sure with more mixing of cultures now in India views are more cosmopolitan within middle class and up.

    Two Punjabi fellow grad students I knew used know here in the US used to constantly abuse a South Indian friend of mine for not speaking or knowing Hindi because "it is the national language." They always conversed in Hindi or Punjabi regardless of who were around them. Both of them were from Delhi. Maybe it is the Delhi in them that was obnoxious.  
     
    Like I said, I never claimed that all Punjabis were obnoxious. Maybe my experience was skewed, but I observed that they are more extroverted than people from other races, generally speaking. Again being extroverted is not necessarily bad, unless it borders on the extreme.

    I thought Sidhu was a chewyt, no? So what’s the fuss? It is an a-hole being an a-hole. 
     
    However, it is true that of all the Indians I have met, Gultis and Punjabis have been the most obnoxious. This is in no way a generalization and I have close friends from those two races who are great people, but they ones I found obnoxious were for the following reasons - those Punjabis think their culture should be universally accepted, everyone should speak Hindi and like North Indian cuisine, they are loudmouth and arrogant, etc. The Gultis were very obnoxious because of their backward social views, proudly touting th dowry system, extremely clanish, etc. Again, this is not a generalization, but only my observation of the Gultis and Punjabis I have come across and that too maybe about 50-60% of them. Others may have had a different experience. For other races, I have interacted with, the % is less. Aussholes exist in all forms and in all races.
     
    Again, please do not think I hate Gultis and Punjabis ... I don’t. It is not meant to be a generalization although the post may appear that way.

    I cannot say anything specific about the sexual harrasment claim on the set because it is impossible for an outsider, but there is clear proof that goons were vandalizing the car while she and her parents were on the way out. Just that alone would traumatize anyone when you are in a small enclosed space surrounded by an angry mob and you do not know if you are going to be dragged out and beaten to a pulp. Is this how a civilized society functions?
     
    It is also true that Indian media is sensationalist and piling on this. But as I said before, Bollywood is utter trash full of hollow people.

    It is series loss and a pathetic loss like the ones in England, even before it has started. How many times do you know the outcome before an event has taken place? Indian cricket overseas is one such novelty.
