नई दिल्ली: तनुश्री दत्ता का नाना पाटेकर यौन शोषण का आरोप लगाने का बाद लगता है भारत में #Metoo मूवमेंट ने तेजी पकड़ ली है। एक बाद एक कई महिलाएं खुलकर अपना साथ हुई घटनाओं का जिक्र कर रही हैं। दो महिला पत्रकारों के लेखक चेतन भगत पर यौन शोषण का आरोप लगाने के बाद एक और महिला पत्रकार ने सिंगर कैलाश खेर और एक्स बिग बॉस कंटेस्टेंट जुल्फी सईद पर उनके साथ छेड़छाड़ का आरोप लगाया है।
पत्रकार नताशा हेमरजानी ने ट्वीट किया- ''मेरा #Metoo सिंगर कैलाश खेर और मॉडल जुल्फी सईद है, जब मैं 2006 में हिंदुस्तान टाइम्स की यंग वुमेन फोटोग्राफर नियुक्त हुई थी। मुझे मेरी सहकर्मी महिला पत्रकार के साथ कैलाश खेर के घर उनके इंटरव्यू के लिए उनकी तस्वीरें खींचने के लिए भेजा गया था। इंटरव्यू के दौरान वह हमारे बीच बैठ गए। वह हमारी जांघ पर लगातार अपना हाथ रख रहे थे।''

My #MeToo has singer Kailesh Kher & model Zulfi Syed, from when I was a newly appointed young woman photographer at Hindustan Times in Bombay, 2006.
Tweeting this thread for all to draw strength & speak out

I was sent with my colleague, a woman journalist, to take pictures of Kailesh Kher at his home for an interview. During the interview, this creep sat between us as close to us as he could. He also kept putting his hands on our thighs (on the skin above our skirts)
''हम गुस्से में थे और जल्दी वहां से निकल गए। मैंने सहकर्मी से कहा कि हमें यह अखबार में छापना चाहिए, लेकिन उन्होंने कहा कि अखबार कभी यह खबर नहीं छापेगा।''

We were appalled & left as soon as possible. I discussed with my colleague the idea of writing the interview from the point of view of unwelcome sexual molestation but she said the paper would never publish it because it would be libel (even if we were both witnesses)
''मैंने अपने कई दोस्तों और सहकर्मियों से कैलाश खेर की हरकत के बारे में बताया, लेकिन ज्यादातर लोगों ने कहा- आप महिला हैं, आपको अपनी सुरक्षा खुद करनी होगी।''

I've let a number of friends and colleagues know about this incident with Kailesh Kher and the main reaction is always a shaking of the head, and 'this happens, as a woman you've got to look after your own self' logic / expression.
''एक और घटना जुल्फी सईद के साथ हुई। कुछ प्रेस फोटोग्राफर्स, पत्रकारों, मॉडल्स को पीआर एक्सरसाइज के तहत क्रूज पर बुलाया गया था। मैं एक महिला सहकर्मी के साथ वहां शूट करने गई थी।''

The near sexual assault episode with Zulfi Syed occurred on a cruise liner. A bunch of press photographers, journalists, models and people were invited on board overnight as a PR exercise. I was there with a woman colleague to shoot the entire event.
''उस दौरान मेरी और जुल्फी की अच्छी बॉन्डिंग हो गई थी। मैंने जुल्फी के कमरे में अपना फोन चार्ज करने के लिए लगाया था। डिनर और थोड़े डांस के बाद मेरी सहकर्मी और दूसरे मॉडल्स वहां से चले गए। मैं शिप डेक पर जुल्फी के साथ अकेले थी। उन्होंने मुझे किस किया, मैंने उन्हें किस किया। इसके बाद मैं इसे आगे नहीं बढ़ाना चाहती थी इसलिए मैंने उनसे कहा कि मैं सोने जा रही हूं। मुझे याद आया कि मेरा फोन उनके कमरे में चार्ज हो रहा है। मैंने उनसे इस बारे में कहा तो वह मेरे साथ अपने कमरे में जाने लगे।''

In due course of the evening, we got talking with the models amongst whom Zulfi and me sort of hit it off. My colleague and I formed a group along with Zulfi and a couple of other models and we moved about the cruise ship sampling the bars, cabaret club and diners.

At some point while looking at the rooms the models had been given to stay in, I ended up leaving my phone to charge in Zulfi's room. After dinner and some dancing, my colleague was sleepy and left. So did the other models and I was alone with Zulfi on the ship deck

He kissed me, I kissed him back, I decided I didn't want to take this any further and said so, and that I was going to bed. I remembered I'd left my phone charging in his room so I asked him if I could collect it. He agreed and we walked down the ship to his room.
''मैं कमरे में जाकर अपना फोन लेने गई, तभी जुल्फी ने दरवाजा बंद कर दिया। मैंने उनसे पूछा कि आपने दरवाजा बंद क्यों किया तो उन्होंने कहा कि हम दोनों को पता है कि मैं कहीं नहीं जा रही थी और मैं कमरे में सिर्फ अपना फोन लेने नहीं आई हूं। मैंने कहा कि मैं सिर्फ अपना फोन लेने ही आई हूं। इसके बाद वह मेरे साथ जबरदस्ती करने लगे। इसके बाद मैं किसी तरह वहां से भागने में कामयाब हुई।''

I entered the room and took my phone, it was by the bed. Zulfi shut the door & leaned against it. I asked him why he'd shut the door, he said we both knew I wasn't going anywhere and that I hadn't really come to his room for the phone. I said I'd only come for my phone

I walked up to the door to leave. He was standing right there, he grabbed me as soon as I reached for the handle, shoving me against the door and forcibly kissing me. I struggled and said I didn't want this but he wouldn't stop. I realised I was extremely vulnerable.

There was nobody outside in corridor, no one would hear me scream, he was physically overpowering me & wouldn't stop and I did not want to become a victim of sexual assault. I had to strategise to get away so I stopped fighting him off. Instead, I made myself hold him.

I said hey okay, why don't we do this properly on the bed. He backed off smiling. As soon as there was a window of a gap in his hold on me I wrenched the door open and ran down the empty corridor with my heart racing, feeling any second I would be dragged back by him.

I reached the room I shared with my colleague, banged on the door. She let me in, saw my panic, asked me what happened. I told her the whole story & also told her we should report it. She asked me-why did I have to go to his room alone? I repeated, we should report it.
(14)#MeToo— Natasha Hemrajani (@radiantbear) October 6, 2018
But we both knew the paper would not publish it. Nothing would be done; I would be blamed for encouraging his attention. I learned at this point that women have to be vigilant all the time. Nobody would call out the men. The next day Zulfi apologised to me on the deck.

He said it was just a misunderstanding and he hoped I wouldn't make a big deal of it. I have spoken about both these incidents with colleagues and friends and they are always met with that headshake & 'what to do' expression. Until now. #MeToo@weeny@AGirlOfHerWords
