  8. @sahilk @powaiinfo When it is physical violence- unless you’re entirely sure you can take the guy down, do no such thing. Call the police.

  9. Sahil argues that the best first plan of action is “Bell Bajao!”
  10. @Sengupta @powaiinfo Not about bringing the other guy down. Just ring the door bell. Remember the Bell Bajao campaign?

  21. Last SMS I got from the friend was that the beating had stopped and the family seems to have gone to sleep. She said it was a routine matter and she would use the information next time to complain.
