How a woman survives in Delhi ought to be a post-apocalyptic heroine-survival story in iteself. In this city, more rapes are reported than anywhere else in India. A habitually rude public likes to call molestation good-old eve-teasing, to soften the impact. Part of 'chalta hai yaar' attitude here. This NYT blog post talks about how Delhi women face up to it all - using "teri umra ke mere bachhe hain, beta' retort to eve-teasers, and moving in groups and getting back at men behaving badly. There is even a video as they follow Delhi women for a day.
