Following this, there were short interviews of a few of these ladies.
In general, the ladies spoke of various instances of their lives when they have had to dodge the onlooker a bit, so as not to arouse any suspicion.
However, what was striking about the narratives was the in-your-face honesty of the manner in which these stories they told. There was no pretence, no guilt whatsoever. Infact, most of them were told with a nice dash of humour & most of the women present laughed easily.
And I sit here in the air conditioned comforts of my office each day; struggling to strike a balance, rushing for covers.
