Now on another website a lady had written about a way in which she had stopped men pestering her .

According to this lady , wearing lots of bangles stops men from harassing you , as this shows you are married .

So , how correct is this ~ should I on arrival treat myself to multiple bracelets and jangle my way around Rajasthan or will it not really deter most men

err, what makes you think married women are not 'pestered' in India? They are.

The nice guys will never pester you, and the idiots will no matter how many bangles you wear or wedding ring or bindi...just how it is.

bangles ????
this is the first i've heard of this!!
incidentally - not all married women wear bangles...
besides with all them jingle jangles you will probably attract even more touts who'll want you to buy their jingle jangles!

hellsbellsbaby - live up to that name
it aint thaaat bad - reading through IM you surely must realise that!

arre - 5 brownie points for you sir, ok dashit... 10 then.

churi in bengali means bangles.
churi in bengali means stealing.
- different spelling, in bengali that is!

now there's a thought - might just shock people enough to work! Who's going to be the first to try it out?

Seriously hellsbellsbaby, other than sindoor/red color powder in the parting of one's hair, there's no definitive sign of marriage. So bangles, wedding ring, bindi, etc - no difference between married and single women.

Course as the Capt pointed out, married women aren't off-the-hook either as targets.

How about going full burqa, walking softly, & carrying a big cricket stick(as in oops did I accidently buttend you in the midsection - terribly sorry)!?

I once asked my wife why she never wears bangles --- I like them.

She replied that they would be worn by Brahmin women, and low-class women, and the just-married.

That's just one interpretation from one corner of India: these thing differ wildly from place to place and culture to culture.
