#1 What should a woman do if she finds herself alone in the company of a strange male as she prepares to enter a life in a high-rise apartment late at night?
IExperts 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 What to do if a stranger tries to attack you when you are alone in your house?
IExperts say: 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.
#3 Taking an auto or taxi at night.
Before getting into an auto at night, note down its registration number. Then use your mobile to call your family or friend and pass on the details to them in the language the driver understands.
IEven 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. A potential attacker is now your de facto protector!
#4 What if the driver turns into a street he is supposed to and you feel you are entering a danger zone?
: Use the handle of your purse or your stole to wrap around his neck and pull him back within seconds, he will feel choked and helps.
#5 What to do if you are stalked at night?
: Enter a shop or a house and explain your predicament. If its night and shops are not open, go inside an ATM box. ATM centers always have security guards. They are also monitored by closed-circuit televisions.
In case you don’t have a purse or stole just pull him back by his shirt would then do the same trick. Fearing identification, no one will dare attack you.
I# 6 Never accept any juices, soft drinks, water etc from a stranger. If you even buy a bottle of juice/ water or any soft drink form any store which is not in a posh area make sure that the bottle is sealed before you purchase it. If not, don’t accept it. Walk away.
I#7 If you ever sense any danger or a situation that you might feel uncomfortable, use your phone in a way that one push of a button can alarm your brother, husband or the authorities. Keep a Pepper Spray with you always. It saved many lives. If possible don’t go out at night alone.
After all, being mentally alert is the greatest weapon you can have
