SHE – The nameless faceless ones

SHE was working in the night shift and was on her way home in the company car after a tiring day when it happened. Four strange men forcibly got into the car with her as they were halted at the signal…one man even pulled the driver out and pushed him to the ground. It happened before she really had a chance to comprehend what was going on. As they drove away to have their way with her…SHE wished she had something to help her…

They told her SHE would get the best wildlife pictures if she waited quietly in the bushes at the edge of the village until the first faint light of the morning appeared. She did as she was advised and waiting patiently. Suddenly she heard the crack of some twigs. She stilled in anticipation for the animal to make its appearance. It did. It also stood on two feet….SHE wished she had something to help her…

SHE was waiting for her bus when a minivan slowed down beside her. The man in the passenger seat lowered his window and beckoned her. She looked at him suspiciously for a moment but then he only seemed to be asking her for directions so she went closer to the vehicle to show him where to go.  The back door slid open before she knew it and a man pulled her in. They laughed as they drove away while she looked helplessly on…SHE had nothing to help her…

***

SHE is me….SHE is also you. SHE is the everyday woman. SHE is every woman who goes about her daily chores but ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time by some cruel twist of fate. SHE is every woman who has suffered at the hands of cruel barbaric men. SHE is every woman who has not had the bright light of the media shined on her misfortune and so has been ignored. SHE is every woman who could have been saved and spared if perhaps she had a little something on her to protect her…I wish SHE had Smart Suraksha with her

  1. You’ve described very accurately how things could happen when you least expect them to. That’s when Smart Suraksha is useful. Of course, the person needs to carry the smartphone in her hand to be able to click immediately.

      Yes. There is always a hitch to everything. But from my experience and observation, most girls have their phones in their hands all the time. If not for safety, then atleast to listen to music. So, it is a very well thought of application in that respect.
      Thank you for the comment.
