There have been protests by students in Delhi's Lady Shri Ram College and Jesus and Mary College against hooligans who indulge in this sickening practice.

The student recalled the ordeal she underwent and said, "Ever since it moved to this city seven months ago, I've been bumped by a few times by men."She wrote a detailed post describing the incident and said that what shocked her the most was that no one on the busy street even acknowledged it. We are approaching you with a strong appeal for adequate policing and patrolling and for more pro-active measures because we strongly feel these are lacking", a memorandum submitted to the police commissioner said". "It dried white on my black leggings, and the foreign smell clearly indicated that it wasn't water", she explained.

She added that the incidents reflect a mindset that women are "easy targets because they generally do not speak out or complain due to fear or the embarrassment and shock attached to such sudden assaults".

Noted journalist and author Sagarika Ghose was vehemently trolled on social media over a tweet in which she accused Hindus of throwing "semen-filled" balloons on female students before Holi.

Bank of England's Carney steps up attack on cryptocurrencies
If the world of crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin are the Wild West, a new sheriff just swaggered into town. Blockchain technology could be used to make payments more flexible, efficient and reliable.

The student recalled the ordeal she underwent and said, "Ever since I moved to this city seven months ago, I've been bumped a couple of times by men". All accidentally of course. "My kurti tells the tale", she said. The Delhi University had yesterday announced elaborate internal and external security arrangements on campus, hostels and other colleges to counter any possible threat under the garb of Holi celebrations. "My white kurta doesn't invite you to throw balloons at me".

When Holi is around the corner you expect to hear stories like "Water balloons thrown outside XYZ college" or "Women molested during Holi party" or about some group of hooligans that made a decision to drug girls or get too touchy with a tagline tattooed on their actions "Bura Na Mano Holi Hai".

Yesterday, it was a girl from LSR, Today it was me, and there are plenty of girls with whom this is happening, who are just too afraid or embarrassed to speak up. These girls are vulnerable and so they have come forth demanding action. " what should I do?" Let's stand against this.

ABC*, the concerned JMC student further told indianexpress.com that she looked around for help from the people in the bus, hoping they would get down and catch hold of the perpetrators. Throwing water balloons at unsuspecting passers-by is problematic as it is; but to fling body fluids in balloons at women must be seen as a new low in the already despicable record of street-side violence against women in the country. For only then can it be a festival that some of us don't have to dread every year. One of the most sickening things the troublemakers seemed to be doing to women is flinging semen-filled balloons at them.
