SHILLONG, July 9 - Tailin Lyngdoh, the Khasi governess who was forced out of a posh Delhi club because of her traditional attire last month, will depose before Meghalaya State Women Commission tomorrow.

�We will depose before the State Women Commission at Shillong tomorrow,� Tailin�s employer Dr Nivedita Barthakur Sondhi said.

She said the Commission sought their deposition as both Lyngdoh and Barthakur have lodged a complaint with it. �I have met Meghalaya Chief Minister Mukul Sangma days after the incident and as per his advice we lodged a complaint with the State Women Commission,� Barthakur said.

On June 25, staffers of posh Delhi Golf Club had asked Lyndoh, an invited guest, to leave a dining room because her traditional Khasi attire looked like a �maid�s uniform�.

Since then, Lyngdoh said, she had to deal with the post incident trauma and is not keeping well with her health too.

�I had to deal with such an embarrassing situation... to be chased out of a lunch invite at the club... The trauma of being ill treated. We (tribals) are not used to ill treat or look down upon people,� Lyngdoh said over phone. � PTI
