“I was 10 years old. I was in Haridwar, one of the religious places in India. My mother was standing a few feet away from me. Suddenly, a guy came and poked his finger inside my a**. I was shocked. I just ran away. Then, a few years later, a man grabbed my br**sts in a hall. I clearly remember these incidents. I used to think that it’s my fault. Now, people have come on social media and have started abusing others — mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually — there. I consider it faceless terrorism,” Neha Bhasin said.

Speaking of cyber bullying, Neha recalled receiving death threats online from fans of a popular K-pop band.

“It all started when I had shared my point of view in support of another singer. I did not pass any demeaning remarks for the K-pop band. I only had said that I am not a big fan of that particular band and since then I have been trolled. From rape threats to death threats, I have witnessed it all. I don’t keep quiet now. I even filed a police complaint,” Neha Bhasin added.

Such experiences have led Neha to come up with a song titled “Kehnde rehnde”, which is against cyber bullying. The track aims to highlight issues like sl*t-shaming, s*xism, cyber bullying and confining women to stereotypical standards of society.

“One should not tolerate anything wrong. One should raise his/her voice against the wrongdoings. Don’t ignore, just call out,” Neha Bhasin added.
