Growing incidents of stalking and eve teasing in Delhi have led several girls to devise different means to ward off these roadside Romeos. A colleague’s friend shared how she managed to ensure these antisocial elements maintain their distance.

The young lady, who was visiting our colleague’s home, was chatting with his mother and sister. Our colleague’s sister noticed the girl was wearing a ring on her engagement finger. Filled with curiosity, the sister congratulated the friend, pointing to the engagement ring and berated her for not informing her.

The girl immediately rubbished her and said, "These days I get accosted by many roadside Romeos. Whenever they come near me, some even proposing to me, I show them this ring and say, ‘Dude, you are a bit late I am already engaged!’ And this is the best way to get them to stay away."
