India’s 14 second “no staring” law

India’s 14 second “no staring” law

Ladies, got your stopwatches out?

14 seconds & counting.

In a country beset with sexual violence and with a patriarchal mindset, THIS is what one official from Kerala has come up with.

What a plonker.


“There are sections in law to jail a man for annoyingly staring at a woman for 14 seconds.”


Really & truly, does such a section “in law” exist?

If so, won’t one of you please send me the reference?

And if so, does any one have any idea why the figure of 14 seconds?
