Few years back, i would fight with friends in arguments over Mumbai being the safest place in the country especially for women. Couple of incidents in the last 2 years have turned all arguments upside down. A woman in rags raped in front of passengers in a local train late at night last year was the last nail in the coffin. As if that was not enough we have another incident involving a cop.
During a discussion with a close friend, we discussed this and what my friend told me speaks volumes for the change that Mumbai and perhaps a lot of other places are seeing. He told me this & i quote " Naresh, you have always been wrong when it came to places, remember after spending 3 years in Gujarat, you used to tell us how much you loved the place and the people, look what happened there and now Mumbai, after all your arguments about it being the safest place in India".
I have decided to make no more arguments about places and people from now on!
