Nights - Is it really dark outside..... ???
Nights - RAAT...
I know.....many things stirke in and out of your mind....the second you here the word - NIGHT.
Aaj ki raat,night outs,raat ka nasha........and and......list goes on.
But,there is more to Nights just as there is another sky above the blue one.
In todays "Kalyug" thing have change ,so have the nights. It's lost its "original charm" and regained the "not so wanted" status. In India,things are always ahead.Be the minds,the thoughts and yes,the Nights !
A recent increase in the number of "dark"incidents have let many a think -
IS IT REALLY SAFE OUTSIDE YOUR HOME ?
According to me,DEPENDS. Depends on what safety you are really talking about ?
We can't have Police/armed guards for everyone.Even the ones who have are more in danger than the formers. So,it all comes back to YOUR ALERTNESS or in Indian term - vigilance !
A heavy word....huh....
Some recent occurrences in and around NCR and incidents almost all over India , have made the public think -WHAT DO WE DO ? Virtually-Nothing you can do....Practically ,THER ARE SOME.
People ,especially girls-->are more unfortunates . Well,there are "n" number of safety forethoughts doing the rounds.It all comes to you.
What is it that you think would beseem you the most ?
In general, I suggest -->
Please don't travel late nights in Delhi or anywhere else. IT'S NOT COOL,anymore now!
OK....but what about work/late night shifts/parties.....yes....things have changed.....A LOT.
Recently,after a small sojourn, I reached at 11:10 pm at Delhi Railway Station....metro was over....I had someone to pick me up.......:-)
BUT,what if I had to go alone ? Yes ! Men do get scared.After all humans have become the biggest threat to humanity.
A friend of mine working in Gurgaon has to go back to her place at Mayur Vihar.Everyday.Imagine how scared her family and friends would be !
It's just not safe out there.
Bus sevice at 11 pm. NO.
AUTOS - PREPAID OR POST ONES - BOTH THE SAME..
Work Cabs - You know them better than ME.
Own transport - You can drive after a wearing day and be safe...great !!!
--I don't recommend late night journey ,unless you have someone with you.
--If you're out and have no option but,to come late....INFORM...your near ones ....the place where you're going ,friends etc....
--Keep your mobiles charges....more, keep spare batteries
DON'T SEND SMS-->CALL
--Learn martial arts .Tough. :-)
--Peppermint sprays.Handle it carefully.
--If you're driving alone,make sure ,you dont stop at anything but,your destination.
--NO LIFTS. NO WINDOWS DOWN.NO UNLOCKED DOORS. NO GETTING INTO ARGUMENTS. LEARN YOUR ROUTES.
[YES ,I AGREE IT'S GOOD TO HELP PEOPLE ,BUT RAAT KE 1 BAJE IT'S BETTER TO HELP YOURSELF]
--ALWAYS remember the NUMBERS of your nearest police stations /PCR.
I believe in destiny ,so try your best......Baaki........!!
BE CAREFUL WHILE DRIVING. STAY SAFE.
PS- Doing all the above things won't ensure your 100% safety.But,yes,after reading this,it would let you act in a more "watchful" way the next time you're OUT @ NIGHT.
