What is the meaning and origin of the expression "eve teasing"?
What do you normally find outside a girl's college? Boys, of course! A whole bunch of boys making fun of the girls, and trying to get their attention. That's what eve teasing is; members of the male species making fun of the opposite sex. The fun that these roadside Romeos (or Adams?) indulge in isn't always innocent either. The expression "eve teasing" is Indian in origin; you won't find it in most dictionaries. Native speakers of English don't use it. Since it is Indian, should we change the name "Eve" to something else?
