I started my blogging career back in 2010 - the year of uprising in Kashmir. Although there were a lot of issues in Kashmir apart from the Kashmir Issue itself, I was inclined to write about social issues like eve teasing prevalent in our society.

Back in those days, eve-teasing was one of the most underreported crimes in our news media. However, few victims had done away with "Eve Teasing is a Taboo Subject" notion.

With the aim to contribute my bit to highlight this silent crime, I wrote an article titled "Eve Teasing: Challenging Social Evil & Depiction of Moral Corruption in Kashmir" on my blog.

I was complimented by many friends for the post as it dealt with one of the most prevalent, and at the same time, most ignored crimes.

Recently, I missed the renewal date of my blog's domain which caused a downtime, stretching for three days. As I was configuring DNS for the blog, few visits from Google Search were needed to make sure everything was falling in line.

While I typed the URL of my blog domain, I was captivated by some search results. I noticed the article linked to some prominent research papers about the very topic - Eve Teasing.

The article has been cited in various research papers (seven, if I remember correctly) but the prominent among them which caught my attention have been shared.

There has been enough work/research on the topic now as victims report the harassment due to changing public opinion against this practice.

Eve-teasing is also highly criticized by the media and netizens on social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Eve Teasing is no more a taboo subject now! Our collective voice against this muted crime can make a really big difference in making our society a hell of a lot better for the womenfolk. So, speak up!
