Take the bull by the horns
It is some thing called eve teasing in an early stage and ragging at college level. There is not much of a difference between roadside, culture-less and uneducated eve-teasers and those indulging in ragging in college. Anyway, fortune favours the brave.
So, one has to be confidant and be ready to fight for rights. It is always better to face it and fight in groups than tackling it alone. Learning martial arts will be handy. Parental involvement can be useful and society should also fight it. Jaya Visveswar
Don't show it out
If a student droops his shoulders or downs his head or presses his fingers against each other at the sight of another student, then one thing can be concluded straightaway, the former is a junior while the latter is a senior. It is this kind of cowardly body language that enables a junior to catch the unsuspecting eye of an unknown senior. So be bold or pretend to be one and never throw away the impression that you are a junior.
Different people have different notions in their mind about this. Some say, ragging is nothing but an interaction and some feel it is a way to make friends with juniors. Sometimes, interaction itself leads to a ragging case.
My experience says every senior expects respect from the juniors. If he gets the reverse of it, he starts showing his seniority, which leads to a ragging. Some seniors do not expect any thing from juniors but rag them to show their superiority.
To overcome them, my advise would be - Do not watch the face of the senior while you are roaming on the campus, send maximum time in your college, if a junior is taken away by the seniors, alarm the concerned authorities, always keep the phone number of your principal, concerned squad or authorities with you and most importantly remove the fear of ragging in your heart.
