Move with Smart Suraksha.

Seeking Smart Suraksha!

Smart Suraksha Contest

  • -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • When Draupadi was being disrobed and dishonoured by Dushasana in the presence of the Bheeshma Pitamaha and Dhritarashtra  and the entire court , Draupadi did not need a Smart Suraksha. She prayed to Lord Krishna and Lord Krishna  'clothed' her modesty with unending yarns of sari that Dushasana was tired of pulling the neverending cloth. But the daughters of modern day Bharat have no such saviour in form of Lord Krishna.

When the photojournalist along with her male friend had dared to go into the defunct and abandoned Shakti Mills for her routine work , she was stripped of her modesty by hungry wolves in broad daylight. I wished she has a Smart Suraksha which would have averted the tragedy of her body and soul.

I wish Nirbhaya had the good fortune of carrying the Smart Suraksha when she had boarded the bus on the ill-fated late evening and if she had done so then today she would have been alive to see her future take shape of her dreams.

I wish the factory worker from Navi Mumbai had the opportunity of carrying the Smart Suraksha when she boarded the train. She would have been located when she fell off the train , hit by a urchin .This application would have saved her life.

I wish whenever any college going girl is harassed, molested or eve-teased , she should have access to Smart Suraksha.

When a lady walking down on the footpath is at the gun-point looted of her gold jewellery, she should be able to use Smart Suraksha.

When a CSW is taken advantage , I wish she is able to use Smart Suraksha.

I wish even school going girls should be fortified with Smart Suraksha , and should be able to call for help when someone touches her inappropriately, or is offered sweets by strangers.

Whenever a lady in public places or within the four walls of the house feels insecure , help should be available with the press of a button with the Help of Smart Suraksha.

These are some of reported cases in the newspapers and the media. There may be more unreported cases of injustice heaped on women be it rape , domestic violence , loot , arson and physical harassment. Every women/girl should carry this appliance as she carries her essentials in her purse to survive in this concrete jungle. Troubles and tragedy do not knock on the doors and arrive but shake up unexpectedly at any odd hours  and odd places.
 The pepper spray can to some extent help but the exact location of the harassed lady cannot be determined . So ladies arm yourself with the Smart Suraksha App, an Android Application that aims at making the women feel safe. This App, at the press of a single button, sends your message of help to five pre-chosen contacts from your contact list. An additional feature of this app is that along with your message for help, it also sends across your location even if the GPS on your cellphone is switched off. Thus, ladies can be reassured of help available at all times.

This is a boon to all ladies , irrespective of  all ages, working or a home-maker or a college going girl. Do not hesitate to take the help of Smart Suraksha. Hamari Suraksha hamari haath mein hai Smart Suraksha ki saath.

P.S. : Senior citizens should also be armed with Smart Suraksha facility. They are the most vulnerable people to attacks.

You can download Smart Suraksha App on your phone from Google Play Store here.
