Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
We live in a scary world where rape and sex trafficking is rampant and there is a real danger to women. Once you step foot out of your home, anything can happen. There are dangers out there waiting for girls and women. The best way to keep you out of harm’s way is by following the safety tips below.
Before getting into an auto at night, note down its registration number. Then use the mobile 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 a 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.
What if the driver turns into a street he is not supposed to and you feel you are entering a danger zone?
Use the handle of your purse or your stole (dupatta) to wrap around his neck and pull him back. Within seconds, he will feel choked and helpless. In case you don’t have a purse or stole just pull him back by his collar. The top button of his shirt would then do the same trick.
If you feel that you are being stalked, enter a shop or a house and explain your predicament. If it is night and shops are not open, go inside an ATM box. ATM centers always have security guards. They are also monitored by close circuit television. Fearing identification, no one will dare attack you. After all, being mentally alert is the greatest weapon you can ever have.
If you find yourself alone in the company of a strange male as you prepare to enter a lift in a high-rise apartment late at night. 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.
Change your walking routes often. Mix up your routine. Many attacks happen after the victim has been watched for a period of time. If you go jogging every day at 2pm, you may want to change it up. Go at different times, and take various routes as well.
Don’t be shy to ask for an escort to your car. If you’re with friends, ask them to walk with you to your car. Have your keys ready in your hands… Keys can also be used as a weapon.
Always be aware of your surroundings. Be discreet with your wallet, don’t flash your money around or show off expensive items.
If a stranger tries to attack you when you are alone in your house, run into the kitchen. You alone know where the chili powder and turmeric are kept.And where the knives and plates are. All these can be turned into deadly 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.
Wear proper footwear because it’s hard to run in high heels. Avoid wearing restrictive clothing. When you do wear heels, make sure they are easy to take off if you ever needed to run. They can be a weapon!
Never leave a drink unattended when you are at a party with people you do not know, or out of the town. Sadly, I knew someone who went to a party, someone slipped something in her drink, and she was raped
