Eve-teasing and stalking must end

EVE-teasing and stalking are a common phenomenon in our country. Although society ignores the problem, it has been the root cause of destroying many lives. Teasing upsets a girl's life. Nobody can fathom the pains of being a girl in our society. Many girls take extreme steps like committing suicide. Parents are compelled to take her off school and marry off at a tender age. 

Very recently a father lost his two legs when he protested against teasing of his daughter by a group of hoodlums. But in our society we hardly see the offenders being punished. It is high time we make society safe for girls as we cannot expect to achieve progress keeping half of the population insecure.
