ঢাকার পথে-ঘাটে আমাদের মেয়েরা কেমন আছে?


পান্থপথে গতকাল বিকালে হাঁটার সময় এক নারী আমার সামনে সামনে যাচ্ছিলেন। সম্ভবতঃ অফিস বা কলেজ/বিশ্ববিদ্যালয় থেকে ফিরছিলেন।

আমি বারবার ডানে-বামে তাকাচ্ছিলাম আশেপাশের পুরুষদের প্রতিক্রিয়া দেখতে। কয়েকটা প্রতিক্রিয়া এরকমঃ

* কমপক্ষে দুইজন অন্য কয়েকজনকে ইশারা দিয়ে ও ডেকে মেয়েটিকে দেখার জন্য বলেছে; তাদের মুখে ছিল বিকৃত সুখের হাসি;

* একজন লুঙ্গিটা তুলে তার লিঙ্গ কচলালো;

* আরেকজন মেয়েটিকে উল্টোদিক থেকে মেয়েটিকে অতিক্রম করার সময় প্যান্টের উপর দিয়ে লিঙ্গ কচলালো;

* কয়েকজনের দুইটা দলের সবাই মেয়েটির দিকে তাকিয়ে খ্যাক খ্যাক করে হাসলো;

* চারজন ঘাড় ঘুরে তাকে দেখছিল;

* একজন তাকে অতিক্রম করার সময় নিচু গলায় কিছু একটা বললো…

নাহ, মেয়েটি কোথাও থামেনি।
