Woman is the one, who brings us to life who can sacrifice her life for her family but the question is; what are we doing to that woman? Is women Safe in India?
We read newspaper daily in which, cases related to women exploitation has been increasing. What is the reason behind increasing in these cases? Today women are smarter and independent than before. Some bad minds people targeting women easily and doing what they want without any fear.
In our country there are many laws has built to save women from these activities but these laws are theoretical and we can't save us by this. Have any woman ever wondered what she should do if approached by a molester? The sad reality is that we live in an increasingly violent society in which the fear of crime is ever-present.
Personal safety has become an issue of importance for everyone, but especially for women. Women have to take safety measures to save themselves and to others. They are independent enough to become stronger to fight with these activities.
A 17-year old Rajasthan boy, Niranjan Suthar has developed a device called ‘Shocking Glove’ for the protection of women. It socks a molester numb on contact and dispatches the girl’s location, help messages and the incident’s video clip to the police, according to the government officials.

It weighs only 150 grams, the glove is meant to be worn on the wrist and all a woman has to do is switch it on in case she senses any trouble. The glove has been designed to give a 220-volt electric shock to a person who tries to molest a woman wearing it.
The unique thing about this glove is; the shock will render the molester unconscious for 10 minutes. The device has a SIM card, a GPS chip, a video camera, and a 3.4-volt battery. The battery can last for 20 days with 10 minutes of charging. And the best part is that Niranjan developed the glove with all these instalments in just Rs. 500.
“Every day there are so many cases of rape and molestation. Women do not feel safe anymore. Therefore, I have decided to make a device that provides protection to women and makes them feel that they are no longer vulnerable,” he told Catch News.
His parents provided him with all the required equipment and his school provided the platform to display the device, said Niranjan. This device is now displayed at the National Science Fair to be held in Delhi this March. A Delhi-based electronics firm has also approached Niranjan, asking for a model of the device for research and to see if it can be made into a usable consumer good, as reported by Hindustan Times.
