Indians have always been obsessed with the foreign culture and foreign countries. Their obsession with foreigners becomes evident when they are seen getting themselves clicked with the whites. For some, taking home a picture with a random white guy or a girl is a matter of pride and sheer bliss. The less educated, underprivileged lot takes an opportunity like this, as a blessing. Over the last few years, the incidents of foreign tourists being intimidated by Indians have only increased.
Especially when it comes to women, the numbers have gotten worse. The headlines about foreign tourists being bugged by Indians often catch our attention just to be dismissed.
We have heard about it on social media and have even watched it on our TV sets, however, ‘Atithi Devo Bhava‘ is just a phrase that we have boasted about with utter disregard. Our conscience takes a setback every-time, another sickening incident happens with a foreigner in India.
So today, we have got our eye on another incident and it is no less than stigmatic to even write about this incident. A video on YouTube shows a blonde woman who is being followed by and taken control over by a flock of people.
It can be clearly seen in the video that as much as the woman is trying to escape, she only gets ‘touched inappropriately’, ‘stopped forcefully’ for a so-called selfie.
A few men in the video had guts to stand as close to her as possible. One even took his hand around her neck ‘without her permission’ and made her stand close as he held her shoulder.
Just like any other person would behave when being in a foreign land, this woman only passed smiles, while struggling her way out. At last, when she found herself surrounded by men completely, she begins asking them for money for clicking these pictures.
Watch the video below and see how people only considered her as an object, to be flaunted later in a picture!
Do you think this kind of treatment that people have been giving to the foreigners is justified? Tell us through your comments below the post.
