  10. 10. 10Girls Be Careful1) What should a woman do if she finds herself alone in the company of a strange male as she prepares toenter a lift in a high-rise apartment late at night?Experts Say: Enter the lift. If you need to reach the 13th floor, press all the buttons up to your destination. Noone 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, run into the kitchen.Experts Say: You alone know where the chili powder and turmeric are kept. And where the knives and platesare. 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 becaught.3} 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 tocall your family or friend and pass on the details to them in the language the driver understands. Even if noone answers your call, pretend you are in a conversation. The driver now knows someone has his details andhe will be in serious trouble if anything goes wrong. He is now bound to take you home safe and sound. Apotential attacker is now your de facto protector!4}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 wraparound 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 byhis collar. The top button of his shirt would then do the same trick.5} If you are stalked at night.Expert Say: enter a shop or a house and explain your predicament. If it is night and shops are not open, goinside an ATM box. ATM centers always have security guards. They are also monitored by close circuittelevision.Fearing identification, no one will dare attack you. After all, being mentally alert is the greatest weapon youcan ever have.Preventive Measures – From FBIs the best option in India is to be at home always ?
