Devoleena recalls being harassed by her teacher
Devoleena Bhattacharjee had opened up about being assaulted at a young age, but had earlier refrained from sharing details about the incident. However, in her recent appearance in the game show, Ladies Vs Gentlemen Season 2 for Flipkart, the actress actually talked about what had happened to her. She recalled being harassed by a teacher and wanting to take strict action, but not doing so because her family stopped her.
Devoleena revealed, “He was a very good teacher there. Everyone would go to him for tuition. All the good students and two of my best friends also went to him for tuition. Suddenly, after one week, they (my friends) stopped going. They went for one week, but stopped after that. Then I went for tuitions and then he misbehaved with me. I went back home and told my mom. We went to sir’s house and complained to his wife. All that happened. But, I really wanted to take some strong action, because my two friends were there….perhaps it happened with them as well and then they left the tuitions.”
She further went on to add that her friends must have gone through the same ordeal, but did not say anything to even her. She said, “They did not feel the need to inform me because they must have felt ‘what will society say? What will everyone say?’ My family also thought the same, right? That is why they did not go to the police and did not take any strong action. Today, I feel I must stand for myself and take action.”
She concluded by saying, “This is advice for society and all parents. Whenever your children are suffering or facing something like this, please, please. Please, take action.” We totally agree with Devoleena and can only hope that such situation never arises. But if it does, it is necessary to take the right action so that another person doesn't go through the same ordeal.
