    This happened in June 2001 on Nath Ghat at Pushkar Lake.

    I was walking home late (10pm) one night and passed a sadhu walking in the opposite direction to me. I (unwisely) greeted him Sita Ram and kept walking.
    the sadhu then starts calling to me 'Are you Hindu madam?' (Obviously, I am not.)

    I ignored him and kept walking but when i reached a dark corner the sadhu ran back and grabbed my arm. Making disgusting kissing noises, he tired to pull me down onto the ghat.

    At first i resisted and stared saying No Baba, what are you doing but he insistently kept pulling on my arm and i realised that he wasn't going to let me go.

    Since there was nothing left to do, I landed a perfect punch right on his jaw which gave him such a fright that he let go of my arm and ran away accompanied by my shouts.
