On October 17, "Humans of Bombay" shared a story of a Mumbai cab driver who narrated a story about how he saved a young woman being followed by a group of drunken men a few years ago.
The cabbie explained that at around 12:30 A.M., a woman was walking through some dingy lanes, looking anxious, when a group of drunken guys pursued her down the street.
"They then began to actively chase her and I was still across the street -- so as a reflex I decided to start honking continuously. The noise created enough alarm, because they were startled and immediately ran away in the other direction. I crossed over, and told that girl that I would drop her home -- she was so terrified, she had gone completely pale. We drove in silence for those 2-3 minutes....her house was just around the corner, but when she stepped outside, she caught both my hands, started weeping and thanked me over and over again".
