    A Weapon

    No, we are not asking you carry knives or guns but you surely can carry something that can be used as a weapon when in need. A sharp bun pin, a hair pin (a sharp one), a nail filer, and whatever you can use as a self-defense weapon. However, do use it in only extreme needful situations.

    A spare cell-phone

    A dead phone can cause serious troubles. If you are traveling at night or to an unknown place and suddenly your phone runs out of battery, an extra phone can save the day. If your phone is dying due to lack of battery, a spare phone can come in handy. Just keep one basic cell-phone in your bag and you can switch to it in emergencies.

    Some hard cash

    Although it’s the era of plastic money, some hard cash can come in real handy when in need. When leaving house, get in the habit of carrying a substantial amount of money because you never know when technology betrays you, leaving you with no money even if you have credit and debit cards. I mean, you card can get declined anytime. Do carry at least 2000 INR to 3000 INR in your bag. No money can land you in many problematic situations.
