Fantastic method of collection of statistics and decision making!

Srilanka must be the only country where a major decision is made by a person no less than a Minister asking two or three women he meets in a bus/ train and asks them whether they like to have women only compartment and when they say no, Presto, the Parliament decides there is no need!

Obviously there will be women who will want to travel with their own men and if there are separate buses /trains for ladies this may be difficult. But surely if there are  women only compartments it will be so convenient for not only women and girls travelling alone, but even the ones travelling with their male companions.

What we should have is different compartments in trains and one side of seats in buses allocated for ladies. The convenience, lack of harassment and perversion, safety for those travelling alone are all superfluous to even mention.

Let’s hope saner counsel will prevail and  correct decisions will be made.

    The cycle,

    1. Write extremist articles for a few Saudi Riyals
    2. Get humiliated
    3. Keep silent for a significant period of time
    4. Write a few “important” articles to regain credibility
    5. Back to 1.

    Now this article is a transition from 4 to 1. The topic is on “statistics” but ends with segregation of men and women, a characteristic feature of the Middle Eastern desert!!!!! These articles only make sense if you look from the perspective of “the cycle”!!!

    Talking about segregation, it may seem surprising to hear that “modestly dressed” women in Egypt were harassed during Morsi’s time, until they were supposed to “stay at home”!!!

    There are also countries where women and men travel together without any segregation but harassment of women is negligible, hope the readers will try to find out why!!!

    SL is not Saudi.

    Let husbands and wives and lovers have their fun in buses as they do.
