So this Janmashtami I saw this heart-warming scene.
A small dahi-handi was being broken by a mixed group of young boys and girls.
The girls didn't have to worry that the guys will be continuously looking for a chance to grope them.
They didn't have to worry that just because they are ok with guys touching them to help them climb and stay in place they are going to be judged as being "open to be touched".
They didn't have to worry that just because their tops might be a bit out of place every now and then, they are going to be slut-shamed and be judged as "available"
And since it was such a healthy atmosphere the girls were wholeheartedly participating and enjoying themselves as equals.
Definitely at least some green shoots of society maturing and there being real, healthy, open and equal interaction between the sexes leading to mutual fun and happiness.
