One of India’s most reliable security solutions provider, Godrej Security Solutions, initiated a multi-city awareness programme and workshop for the consumers on Godrej Locking solution and systems on Home Safety Day on 15th November 2017. This was an amazing session on ‘How safe are you’ topic at the Hubble, Godrej Plant 13, Mumbai. They superbly released three videos that unlock the mind of a robber. These videos show real life robbers sharing their experiences on robbing a house. These videos not just show the consumers what stops a robber from attacking a home, but also breaks a few myths. The videos can be viewed at Its just an superb video by Godrej to make one understand the importance of Locking and Systems.

I had an opportunity to be a part of this mesmerising event. One most marvellous Panel discussion involved Dr. Kaminidevi Bhoir – honorary Psychiatric counselor for Mumbai Police, Vivek Agarwal – Veteran Crime journalist and author, Shyam Motwani – EVP and Head of Business Godrej Locking Solutions and Systems, Prakash N Borgaonkar –Western Region Head of Helpage India and a real life Victim of theft, over the psyche of a robber. Sujit Patil – VP and head of corporate communications hosted the Panel discussion very nicely.

The Panel Discussion
Sujit Sir started off with the very informal introduction which totally calmed down  the boredom of  typical Panel discussions. He then played the AV which was a compilation of the 3 videos released. The AV had an impact on the crowd very strongly as it had real life reformed robbers speaking of the robberies they had done. Pin drop silence was evident throughout the AV.
Sujit also invited the panelists and introduced them briefly.  I loved this moment as is was an interesting discussion with the victim narrating his ordeal when his house was burgled. Thereon Vivek Agarwal gave some beautiful insights on the modus operandi of some of the most notorious robbers and gangs. Prakash Borgaonkar raised some valid points pertaining to the safety of senior citizens. Dr.Kaminidevi then spoke briefly about the psychology of a robber and why they do not think once before killing. Vivek also pointed out the importance of taking care of oneself smartly and by some basic precautions which could help you always for your safety.
Shyam  Motwani then spoke about the Home Safety day, the history of Godrej Locks and the innovations and evolution of the Godrej Locks over the years. The new era godrej locks are a combined of biometric and digital panel which helps secure the home. He also pointed out the importance of buying the best locks. Investing money here in order to protect your precious home is very important.

Points to keep in mind:
The main points of the discussion ‘How safe are you’ are added as below:
* Don’t send away Dogs. Dogs are our best security.
* Dont just think too much of money while selecting locking systems for your dream home. A good locking systems investing is a blessing for a lifetime safety.
* Make sure your watchman does his duty propely. Don’t allow him to sleep when on duty.
* If your house has any strange markings (charcoal marking of a cross, swastika etc), you have been marked by the burglars. Approach the nearest police station immediately and raise an alert in the neighborhood. Thats one of the most important sign to see.
* Keep your eyes open for a CCTV camera installed right behind you when you lock your door while going out. The burglars could do that in order to see the code on the digital panel. Very smart point to keep in mind.
* Remember to wipe of your finger print from the biometrics once you have identified yourself.
* Always and forever the most important aspect is to stay alert and invest in buying good and quality locks for your house safety. Do not compromise for cheaper options ever.

 The panel discussion concluded with stating that they will convene safety workshops on a regular basis.
To help foster a safety culture , they will actively engage industry experts , on an on going basis, to jointly publish and promote best practices on key safety issues
