Shameful Act By Middle-Aged Industrialist on Board a Flight

A young girl has shown exemplary courage in confronting a middle aged man aboard an Indigo flight to Bhubaneshwar, Odisha. The man was allegedly feeling her and she protested. Then she went on to film the way she made a public spectacle of him. He tried to hide his face and kept on apologizing for his ‘mistakeâ€â"¢ but the pugnacious girl was unrelenting. She complained to the police and they arrested him. Of course, he was released on bail.

Since the video has gone viral on the net with his name and details about his company, this will be the best example of name and shame. The man is supposed to be Ravin Jhunjhunwala, chairman of Orind and Shashwat group of industries and according to his company website, a Harvard graduate and a Phd to boot. God save India if his credentials are true and if such people indulge in such ‘indiscretionsâ€â"¢.

The most shameful thing was that after landing, the man kept on smiling while apologizing to the girl, as if it was a walk in the park for him. One is sure he must have indulged in this ‘past timeâ€â"¢ innumerable times on hapless girls before he found this one who had the courage to show him his place.

The girl kept on asking him to call the women members of his household, especially if he had a daughter then her, but the shameless fellow just kept laughing. Maybe he was certain that his wealth and connections would get him out of this. Maybe he would escape punishment. Maybe the police will put pressure on the girl to take back her complaint (the man has money and connections, you see). Maybe the girl would not pursue the case, given the hassles in Indian courts.

But this video is going to spoil his reputation to such an extent that all his wealth and connections will come to naught. The man doesnâ€â"¢t seem to know the power of social media – and the will of courageous, young women of this generation.
