The recent shocking incident in Delhi and the brutalization of the victim has left everyone across the country appalled and horrified. In our endeavour to ensure our employees are safe and secure, we are sharing some safety tips to be kept in mind.
I decided to post something thoughtful, related to life which gives us some inspiration, knowledge or brain storming question to all of us. But I thought of posting this advisory provided by my company to make everyone cautious of current condition and to be alert and guard ourselves all the time. Because this also arises unspoken questions and a sense of fear which doesn't seem to be going away from me in near future.I am scared for my self, my family, my friends and all if us who  just want to live - a happy and peaceful life. 
This is not the mistake of those who committed this crime. This is the mistake of our law which has always failed to do a justice on time. Our country's constitution does not believe in Capital Punishment. Does it mean they will never stop doing this because it our current punishment doesn't seem to be working. And, there are other questions but no answers to them. Some say change is constant and I think this is the time to change our law. To make amendments at least for such crimes where criminals do not seem to be caring much about law and order.
We will touch base on that soon. But in the mean time, please go through below mentioned points for self-protection. Hope it helps you some or other way!!
1.   Be aware of your surroundings. Don’t let your guard down  a.   If things seem even a slight unsafe get out of that place immediately

You may not understand it or be able to analyze it consciously, but please do NOT ignore it.
