The recent incidents of atrocities against Women has further strengthened my resolve to take this fight into enemy territory. Let us all, consciously, do something, initiate steps, and positively support the Battle to make our planet a safer place to live for our women folk. She is someone’s mother, wife, sister, daughter and therefore, it’s our bounden duty to take care of them.
I was defending the frontiers of our country for nearly 25 years! Now, in this new avataar as a trainer, I urge you all to come together to fight this scourge and make this country a lovable place for them. A land where women are worshiped.
The uniform has taught me: “Offence is the best form of Defence” and how do we translate this to take care of myself. Addressing issues like sexual assault, date rape, violent relationships, sexual harassment of women at workplace (including the Vishaka Guidelines), acid attacks and what is the role of men! This is capped by Situation Control measures.
I’m conducting another session on ‘Women Safety’ tomorrow wherein I bring my lessons from the uniform, my UAC (unarmed combat) training to use. I impart basic techniques to come out as winner from situations, which you shouldn’t have been in the first place. How do you control the situation? How do you retain initiative? The SITCON (situation control) measures will empower you to take control. How do I engage a bunch of goons? How do I tackle the road side romeo? The potential purse snatcher? Or the perpetrators of heinous crimes.
