"Dear Narendra Modi, [Bollywood superstar] Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, [stars] Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan and [businessman] Anil Ambani" because "you are the most powerful and influential men in the country".

She says when a woman is groped or assaulted it is "not her shame", but it is the shame of the "men in our country".
"[The men are] not just the rapists and the sexual offenders and gropers but also our fathers (sorry dad) and uncles and brothers and movie stars and cricketers and politicians for not saving us or protecting us by insisting and protesting for the laws to change and rapists and gropers to be punished severely," she writes.
Insisting that the safety of women is the "number one issue" in India, Treasurywala appeals to the prime minister to "fix this before anything else".
"What good are all your speeches in the US or Japan or Australia - NAMO [Narendra Modi], if no woman can walk freely in the streets even in broad daylight by herself in the capital of our country. Isn't this a shame? Shame on you sir," she writes.
