Still feels Foreigner in our own country

"A 22-year-old human rights activist was allegedly manhandled by an autorickshaw driver in public after she tried to click a photograph of his licence plate for demanding Rs 150 for a two-km ride."

An article publish on June 27 on "BANGALORE MIRROR" so driven me to right this article in my blog. The article state that an activist allegedly manhandled by autorickshaw driver when she tried to take photo of license plate  to complaint against him to the traffic police for asking over fare but unfortunately she allegedly manhandled and threaten. 
Moreover, police don't take that too serious because they are non-Kanada. It is a shame on our part that this kind of small issues we are not taking care off. 
Today, a girl from North India got harassed tomorrow a girl from Southern part will get harassed in some other part of the country. We teach other then it follows  eventually can't we stop and being like as equal and love and respect as one.

I am writing this article because something happened with me not once but twice with auto-driver of asking more then double price and protesting of not paying that much . It is that much threatening that  it makes me feel like I am a foreigner in my own country.

To read more about the article:

Please comment about your feelings or if something happened with you the same.

Ambubachi Mela have already started in Guwahati, Assam. The Ambubachi Mela  is the most important mela celebrated in the Kamakhya Temple in GuwahatiAssam. This yearly mela is celebrated during the monsoon season that happens to fall during the Assamese month Ahaar, around the middle of June, when the Brahmaputra river is in spate. It is the celebration of the yearly menstruation course of goddess Kamakhya. It is believed that the presiding goddess of the temple, Devi Kamakhya, the Mother Shakti, goes through her annual cycle of menstruation during this time stretch. It is also believed that during the monsoon rains the creative and nurturing power of the 'menses' of Mother Earth becomes accessible to devotees at this site during the mela. There is no idol of the presiding deity but she is worshipped in the form of a yoni-like stone instead over which a natural spring flows.
The Sadhus are offering their prayer to the Goddess
The religious gathering is very auspicious for the people of Assam and all the people following Hindu religion. They came and gather from all over India and pays there tribute to the Goddess and seek Her divine blessing. 
This mela is also known as Ameti or Tantric fertility festival since it is closely associated with Tantric Shakti (Power) cult prevalent in eastern parts of India. Even some Tantric Babas make their public appearances only during these four days. The rest of the year, they remain in seclusion. Some Babas are seen displaying their psychic powers like putting their heads in a pit and stand upright on it, standing on one leg for hours at a stretch.
