How much is your safety worth?

A WAR kit only costs Rs 550. What would you rather spend your money on?

a) ANOTHER coffee date with Priyanka
b) Your Safety

We reckon you can catch up with Priyanka next week.

Ok, we know we keep harping on about this bloody WAR kit. What actually is it?

Here’s a breakdown:

Personal Rape Alarm

This is a small device that you can attach to your keys so you always carry it with you. It has a pin at the top - when pulled like a grenade it releases a deafening siren similar to a car alarm. It is enough to draw attention to the fact that you are in trouble, and hopefully will be enough to scare your attacker off.

Pepper Spray

Pepper Spray comes in a small spray-can like a deodorant, and is small enough to easily fit in your handbag. When sprayed, it releases an extract of very strong chilli. If you get this in your attackers eyes it will temporarily blind them and continue to burn their eyes for about 30-45 minutes. It will also sting their skin. This is very effective to allow yourself to get away but will cause no permanent damage. If you are surrounded by half a dozen men or so, it should allow you to take all of them down.

There’s no need for ninja-quick reflexes or Schwarzenegger muscles to use either of these, all you need is to think ahead and be vigilant.
