The Tangled "Tonalities" of Mr. Tejpal

The Tangled "Tonalities" of Mr. Tejpal | Women in India | Scoop.it

So abrupt has been Ms. Chaudhury’s about-face in the last 24 hours, that a lesser woman would have sustained whiplash. Clearly there are advantages to be had from the absence of a spine. So let us look at the chronology of events, since Ms. Chaudhury seems to place such great importance on when events occurred and what (non) actions she took in response.

Andrea Fernandes 's insight:

If at the moment Ms. Chaudhury received her complaint she had done what was legally required of her, namely immediately institute a committee as per the Vishaka guidelines, issue an apology in which the nature of the charges were made explicitly clear, and clearly and categorically offer the complainant hers and the support of the office in deciding what course of action she wished to pursue, there would not today be this discussion about Ms. Chaudhury’s complicity.
