Safety measures for ladies travelling alone in India

Filed under: Life as I know it — Celia Rexselin @ 5:31 am

Once Mahatma said, “Real independence would be obtained when a lady walks without fear at 10 pm wearing jewels”. I think he was overly optimistic.
Forget about jewels, whether you have it or not, its still not safe. I have added some simple precautions that you can take if you are travelling alone.

1) Avoid wearing clothes that reveal too much.
2) Carry very less cash in hand and carry cards instead.
3) If you get a call, avoid speaking personal information.
4) Keep emergency contacts ready and keep them posted on your where abouts.
5) Do not talk to strangers who seem nice and who offer to help even when you have no reason to get help.
6) Be sure of your self and be confident. Evil men target gullible young women.

Last but not the least avoid attracting attention to yourself.
