"I feel sorry for those who do not believe sexual harassment survivors, because there's soon going to be no place for them to hide," De told IANS on the sidelines of the third edition of "Himalayan Echoes: Kumaon Festival of Literature and Art. The truth remains the truth... Whether you believe her or not is reflection of who you are; it's not any indictment about her.
