Story : 55 Fiction : A Woman in Night Street

Woman in Night StreetDamn power cuts! The darkness filled the night street. “Leave me!” she screamed. With difficulty, I spotted two men dragging her. Not difficult for my pistol and the trust in my aim. One down, the other fled away.

The power came back and she saw a Police Officer. “Thank you Ma’am”, she held my hands.

Story: I am there for you – Everyone has a reason!

“Move move move…” yelled the voice.

-“Please sir!”

“Nothing I can do!” yelling continued.

-“Please take this sir!, leave me!”

“What is this?”, he questioned on insufficiency.

-“That’s all I have sir, please sir. Leave me, sir!”

“Ok, ok, I should never see you here again”, the hand grabbed the money and the heavy pockets welcomed it in no time.

He walked away.

“Wherever you go…. I will follow….” Vodafone ringtone demanded an answer. “Yes”…… “Do not worry!”…… “I will get you a management seat in medical college”……”I am there for you ” the policeman replied to his daughter on the phone.

Nokia 1100’s ringtone buzzed in his bag. “Haan, Ma”…… “I am fine”…..”No problem here, I will send the money tomorrow”….. “I am there for you ma” the roadside Panipuri selling boy replied to his mother.

Inspirational Speech : Kiran Bedi : First Woman Officer in the Indian Police Service

This is a short speech by Kiran Bedi. Inspirational one and she deserves a lot of respect.

Alert! : Going to the ATM? Precautions : A Woman brutally attacked in ATM

You must have come across this news, it happened not in an isolated village ATM but in Bangalore. A woman was brutally attacked by a robber with a machete ( a heavy knife ). She survived it but the barbarian escaped and till now not arrested in spite of having a video footage of all his act of cowardice and brutality. A big question is are these CCTVs aren’t lively monitored by anyone? If not, what the heck the use of these cameras? Why there is no surveillance facility to monitor the CCTV cams of ATMs 24×7 live? They can notify police in case of any robbery, violence or theft. Banks can appoint them or outsource it as well. There are so many jobless and even students can do this job part-time. As appointing a security guard for all the ATMs could be an additional measure but that alone is not a complete fool proof way. 

Before you go to any ATM, please follow these steps.

1. It is absolutely fine to stand in a line of 4 people, always prefer ATM in a crowded place.  Mostly, Avoid going alone to ATMs in a remote location, which has no security. Make plans and withdraw cash in advance. Always keep some extra cash as a backup / emergency, so that it reduces the chances of visiting ATMs frequently. If you are a father or a husband, always ensure women from your home has enough cash as a reserve so that they do not need to visit the ATM alone.

2. If you can talk along your friend / relative with you it is more advisable to ask him/her to wait outside for you and if anything happens odd they can always call the Police immediately. If no one else is there, just call / text a friend that you are going to the ATM and will text / call back in 5 mins, not only ATMs whenever women go outside to a new place, it’s always better to keep the concerned people informed. 

3. If you find anybody locked inside the shutter, please do not panic and run. Also not to try to get in to ATM to do any heroic activity, because it may cause the culprit go mad and cause damage to your life as well as the victims. Just lock the Shutter from outside, inform the police, then warn the culprit from outside not to harm the victim, negotiate that if he not harm the victim you will let him go, just manage till the police comes and they can sedate and capture the culprit or any other way they can save the victim.

4. If you are locked inside, do not try to fight the robber unless you are trained martial arts. Just withdraw the amount and give and let him go. Because there is a CCTV footage of his face you can retrieve your money later. Even if it is not gonna return, let it be, your soul is worth a lot than the money.

Be Safe! Where ever you are. 

Sick of idiots who do not value a life and after all they cannot steal more money than the withdrawal limit. Is that the worth of a soul in India? The future has to answer. Please share your opinions on this and how effective we can include technology and security to prevent any such happening in future.

Moron People : Helpless Policeman


This ‪Policeman was laying down on a bus stand. Someone captured and had shared on Facebook teasing “‪Law‬ & ‪‎Order‬ doing its duty”. Sad side, many people are verbally abusing the cop for being lazy, 100s of share and likes too..

Such a ‪Moron‬ thinking of people, he might be fainted, he might be beaten by some baddies. Who knows? Rather taking the snap they might have approached him and tried to know his how about and helped him? Have some common sense.. Is he a fool to sleep near where people spit pan Parag? Same if a police folds hands and watch a public down there, will you keep quiet? You will capture video and put in the news. They are humans too.

We request : “Grow up people before you spread anything, Think”. Do not abuse Social Networking
