Disclaimer: The story shared here is just a dream. If any characters or scenes resemble any person alive or dead or any event, it is just a coincidence.
It was an event. It was supposed to be an awesome night where I could dance with my friends. But guess what happened? The moment I entered the venue I realised that girls were put in barricades/cages and boys were out and free to enjoy. Lol :D Everyone who knows me know that I'll hardly gel with girls. Now what was I supposed to do? Leave all my friends and dance with some strangers just bcoz they are girls?
When I opposed it, I was even told by someone I know that- You are a nice girl. But not all girls are like you. That's the reason we have made this arrangement.
Now what am I supposed to feel? Feel that I'm good and all others are bitches? Or bash that guy for even stereotyping all women?
I did nothing. You know why? Bcoz it was just a dream.
After playing enough hide and seek from the security guys I finally decided to leave my friends alone and go to girls side. Inside the cage.
Luckily off late I can even befriend a stone and talk to it. I happened to find an amazing group and thoroughly enjoyed.. Danced like crazy.
Now that I'm awake from the dream, it feels like what a dream. It was dance of this life. Last time I remember dancing with girls was some 4 years back on a musical night. Even before that it was just my dance class.
While I dancing I just happened to see these volunteers (both girls and boys) were dancing together in a section which was separating the stage from the audience. I was busy dancing. Or else I would have surely taken couple of pics of them as a proof to my statement. Anyhow it was a dream. So even if I had clicked a picture, it wouldn't have mattered.
This what I felt in my dream: Why this double standards guys? You can dance with your friends. But we mango people aren't supposed to have fun? The men who are volunteering are gentlemen and all other men are assholes. Is that what it means?
I couldn't ask this anyway to them, as it was just a dream.
I was in this girls section. The event was over. All girls were asked to stay back for 5 mins until guys leave. Since I was disconnected from my friends the friend who travels on the same route as mine had left the venue little early. I was disconnected. So they could never inform me.
Usually When I'm out at the late nights I always make sure I can be independent enough to travel alone. I needn't depend on any men. (Feminist in me makes me do this)
We were let out after continuous pleading to the organizers for 15 mins. The moment girls were out there was a human chain of security guys in the well lighten area of the venue. It almost felt like men will pounce on girls if there were no human chain. Lol :D To remind you, all this was a dream.
Then I was walking towards this parking lot of the venue where there no lights at all. Guess what? There was not even single security guards to protect girls. What an irony know? Where there is necessity there is no one available.
When I woke up from the dream, series of thoughts rushed into my mind.
If they were really concerned about safety, they could have just let them be and had their security people throughout the venue to guard them. It would have saved women from the discomfort of being away from friends. Instead of having those human chains in inappropriate areas, they could have used the same man power in the appropriate areas. Or they could have let the girls out first, instead of making them wait for 15mins.
Lastly if anyone feels women are unsafe at 10 in the night, why not just shut the events by 8 if they can't keep women safe? It would have saved an embarrassment of being born as human with little weight near the chest. Whose idea was it anyway? I couldn't ask it to anyone as it was just a dream. So asking people who are reading this here. Am I wrong in thinking this way?
Its My World..
