I was crossing the road outside college and a man began to follow me. He brushed past, I tried to ignore. He kept hovering around as I waited for the traffic to slow down, so that I could walk across to college. Seeing my obvious discomfort he seemed to have got encouraged. He came closer stood by me and then tried to touch me. Summoning all my courage I yelled at him at rushed across towards the college gate. He got taken aback. He followed. I quickened my pace, and summoned the guard to chase that ‘man’. But before the either the guard or the man could do anything, I just snatched the guard’s stick and hit the ‘man’ on his chest with all the strength I could gather at that jostling moment. He took flight…The guard kept watching…Aghast maybe!!!
