Godrej Security Solutions Urges Women to take Charge of their Security.

This time I am back with a topic which occupies a permanent place in the News in India, Women Safety and Security. India is a country famous for its great tradition and culture where women are a respected  in the society from the ancient times. It is the country where women are given the place of Goddess Lakshmi. At the same time India owns the dubious distinction of being counted among the list of countries with the most crimes against women. The most common crimes against women are rape, dowry deaths, sexual harassment, kidnapping, cruelty by husband or in-laws and sex trafficking. Every day and every minute some or the other women , be it a mother, a sister, a wife, young girls, and girl child, is getting harassed, molested, assaulted, and violated at various places all over the country. Girls also face acid attacks on the streets and kidnapping for the sex by known persons more than strangers. According to the statistics, it is found that a woman is raped in India every 20 minutes.
To address this issue at the grass root level starting with the women them selves, Godrej Security Solutions, India’s leading security solutions provider, kick started a multi-city consumer awareness programme and campaign #IAmSecure. The objective of this campaign, the first leg of which was held today in Mumbai at Godrej One, is to create awareness among women to be more proactive and take charge of their own security, educate them about the various solutions and also educate them about the importance of learning self-defense for leading a safer and secure life.
I was a part of the 150 odd women who attended the event trending #iamsecure across the social media.
The event began with famous Indian Stand-up Comedian Atul Khatri taking a humourous dig at the security preparedness among citizens in India,  followed by a panel discussion on ‘Safety and security for women is a fundamental right’, which was moderated by Sunil Mehta, Senior Vice President & Area Systems Director - Central Asia, JWT. The panelist included: Mehernosh Pithawalla, Global Head - Marketing, Sales & Innovation, Godrej Security Solutions Division, Godrej & Boyce Mfg. Co. Ltd; Sandhya Shetty, model, actor, TV presenter and karate champion; Harshada Patil, legal expert on cases pertaining to sexual harassment, senior representatives from the police force.


According to a recent report by National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), in India, every day 312 burglary, 99 robbery, and 1281 theft cases are recorded. Women, children and senior citizens are the victims of such gruesome incidents. Addressing the event, Lata Dattatray Sutar, Senior Female inspector, said, “While the police department is working relentlessly to ensure safety and security of women in the society, it is also important for women to become more aware of their surroundings, rights and take charge of their security. A collaborative effort will further help to fight against this issue.”
 Mehernosh added, “One of the biggest impediments to the adoption of security solutions in India has been a reactive attitude towards adopting solutions to safeguard one's valuables and loved ones. Society is getting more tech-rich and empowered, and yet we remain as vulnerable to crime as before. Today’s safety and security anxieties are tied up not just with personal safety, but with safety of our loved ones at homes, workplaces, schools and campuses, public places and so on. Hence it is important that women too now take charge of their security and pledge to keep themselves as well as their families secure too. We need to make a fundamental change in our behaviour and be more proactive about security.”


Sandhya Shetty, who spoke in detail how learning Karate made her feel more secure and confident opined, “As they say, prevention is better than cure. It is important that women should learn self-defense and be more aware of their environment and the security threats. I firmly believe that learning self-defense improves agility, alertness and adds to your confidence too as it reduces your dependencies on others for security.”



In a major contribution towards enhancing women security in India, Godrej Security Solutions introduced it latest range of WiFi enabled DIY CCTVs called EVE. The Eve series is capable of directly streaming videos to the mobile handsets of the home owners, and helps one to watch over their loved ones from across the world. The EVE range of CCTVs has an auto-record function.
Godrej Security Solutions introduced three of their latest innovations on this platform. The three products are a plug and play wifi enabled CCTV camera that allows you to watch over your loved ones from across the world on your phone, wifi enabled video door phone and a plug n play burglar alarm system called Eagle I-Lite that raises an alarm when unusual motion is detected.


We all were given a demonstration of these highly innovative and impressive security systems which will ensure that not only women but also children are also safe with Godrej i-secure solutions.
Well, I am getting my Godrej Security system today and proudly announce #iamsecure, you should too.
