TechnoparkToday.com>>Â It is an account of a bad experience faced by a ladyÂ employee in Technopark.Â TechoparkToday shares her complaint mail that has been forwarded to us.
“There are many security guys over here, who are very helpful and co-operative in the technopark and who behaves very well to the ladies, but this is about some people who are like kittens to men and roar at the women.”
I do come to techno-park daily by car from Palayam. Â Usually I park my car in front of Thejaswini Building. I donâ€™t usually go down to -4 parking area, as if I have to leave from office late, then at that time, nobody will be there at the parking area and also there are many dogs which turns out to trouble me. Again there are incidents where the other cars will be parked on the way, not allowing me to move my vehicle.Â Hence for the ease, I park on the above said area. Now that one portion of the parking area in front of the Thejaswini building is restricted not to park (I donâ€™t know why it is closed?), I have to go to parking area between the park center and hostel.
Now comes my issue. Â Around 4 months back, I had to raise my voice with a security officer,Â for weeks, on not allowing me to park anywhere in front of the Thejaswini building. Â He restricts some area by rope, when I was about to park the car since I was late, I went near park center and later I could see that he allowed another guy to park in that same area, saying that he is a man and I couldnâ€™t make him obey. Â Is that I should suffer, just because I am a lady ??? this went on for weeks and once when I took my car at 6 p.m. Â I couldnâ€™t get control on my car, it was going here and there, I parked it near IBS and found that front tyre was punctured.Â The next day, I went to the mechanic and he said that the tyre is completely worn out and that I have to buy a new tyre. Â Mechanic said that it was damaged as if it was being squeezed by some sharp metal. When I parked it in the morning it was not having any issues, then how it happened, it is still a mystery. I canâ€™t spot anybody on this issue, since I havenâ€™t seen anybody doing that and I couldnâ€™t complaint against that security just because he was always troubling me with the issue of parking, so I remained silent.
Yesterday, Since there was no place in front of Thejaswini, I went to my usual place near park center. There rope was tied, saying not to park and it was raining very much. So I parked it outside the rope tied area and was about to leave the car, then one security came running from the park center saying not to park. Â I asked, since I had parked outside the rope tied area, then what is the issue. Â He said that fire drill is to be conducted and hence I shouldnâ€™t park there. I could see many other parked over there and why only me ? He shouted saying that it is blocking the way. I had parked by the side of the way and was not on the way to the steps to the open auditorium. Then since I was late to office, I said, you can call me, if you need and for the time being Iâ€™m leaving, saying this that I left to office.
Since I had an appointment with the doctor, I left from technopark around 5:30 pm, in the evening and I noticed that back tyre was having low air. Â Â Since I was in a hurry, I went with that towards the hospital and as I reached Pattom, one of the bike rider told me that back tyre is punture!!. I then left my car inside the hospital and reached back home. Today morning, my husband called the mechanic and he said that tyre and tube is having no issue. The thing is that the tyre was simply flattened!!!!. I do fill air twice in a month, then how come the tyre got flattened?? Also in the morning one of my colleague was with me, who helped me to park it correctly. If the air was low, then he should have noticed that.Â Â How come a tyre get flattened between 10 am and 5:30 p.m ?
It is done by somebody purposefully â€“ really cruel revenge, and that too to a lady- what happens if was above the speed limit??Â Playing with somebody’s life, doesnâ€™t seems to be acceptable.!!
Anyway, here also, I couldnâ€™t complaint or spot anybody as I didnâ€™t see anybody doing it. But if something happens inside technopark that too after such an incident, whom should I complain and what should I do? (we do remember that security guys face). Â But I would like to mention this incident to authorities.
