“It’s our problem and we need to fix it”. This simple truth has been the motivating factor for Dipesh Tank who started an initiative, now popularly known as “War Against Railway Rowdies”, to help ensure safety of women traveling in local trains.

For Tank, the trigger to do something like this was an incident which he was witness to at Malad station . “A group of boys were hanging out of the train, and trying to touch the women standing on the platform or in other trains which were slowing down next to theirs.

They were also whistling and passing comments. At that moment, I realised something was needed to be done,” said Tank. More info
