Smart Suraksha App
After incident of 16th December in which a girl was raped by a gang of six people in moving bus in Delhi huge demonstrations were held by public and NGOs for death penalty of the rapists. As a result government came into action to form a stricter law for the crime of rape. Those culprits are now sentenced to death by a Delhi session court.
People's effort in this case helped in speedy trials,everybody admired courts decision but problem remained as it is as it was before. These incidents never stopped,daily we hear so many news of rapes not only with adult girls but also with small children. Stricter laws don't ensure women's safety ,there is a need for certain safety measures for their protection and the first one in that line comes up with Smart Suraksha App designed by Dark Matter India. This android app at the press of a single button sends message of help to five pre-chosen contacts from your contact list along with your location even if the GPS on your phone is switched off.
After reading and seeing this app I wish she had Smart Suraksha with her at that time not only her I wish the girl molested by Asaram,photojournalist raped by a gang in Mumbai,small girl raped by his teacher in Jharkhand the dalit girl that raped in Haryana and many such girls had this app with them. But it's never too late we can encourage girls to download this app for their safety,it is a must have app for each girl whether she is a student,a working women or even a housewife. It keeps those close to you whom you can depend for help if attacked by adverse situation or wrong people at anytime and anywhere.
