Every day we find ourselves in different situations but in some instances the decision we make can either prevent danger or set a snare for us. This blog is about what should a woman do if...
1. ALONE IN THE ELEVATOR
What should a woman do if she finds herself alone in the company of a strange male as she prepares to enter a lift in a high rise apartment at night? Experts say: Enter the lift. If you need to reach the 13th floor, press all the buttons up to your destination. No one will dare attack you in a lift that stops on every floor.
2. AGGRESSIVE STRANGER IN THE HOUSE
What to do if a stranger tries to attack you when you are alone in your house, run into the kitchen. Experts say: You alone know where the chili powder and turmeric are kept. And where the knives and plates are. All these can be turned into useful weapons. If nothing else, start throwing plates and utensils all over. Let them break. Scream. Remember that noise is the greatest enemy of a molester. He does not want to be caught.
3. NIGHT TAXI
Taking an Auto or Taxi at night. Experts say: Before getting into an auto at night, note down its registration number. Then use the mobile phone to call your family or friend and pass on the details to them in the language the driver understands. Even if no one answers your call, pretend you are in conversation. The driver now knows someone has his details and he will be in serious trouble if anything goes wrong. He is now bound to take you home safe and sound. A potential attacker is now your de facto protector.
4. DRIVER TAKES OMINOUS TURN
What if the driver turns into a street he is not supposed to - and you feel you are entering a danger zone? Experts say: Use the handle of your purse or your stole (dupatta) to wrap around his neck and pull him back by his collar. The top button of his shirt would do the same trick.
If you are stalked at night. Experts say: enter a shop or a house and explain your predicament. If no shops are open, go inside an ATM box. ATM centers always have a close circuit television. Fearing identification, no one will dare attack you.
After all, being mentally alert is the greatest weapon you can ever have.
Please spread it to all those women you care about and spread awareness as this is the least we can do for a social and moral cause and for the safety of our women.
