Naina Singh is an advertising professional and has to stay back in office more often as the real work starts post 6 pm in a lot of agencies.

She often travels late and always keeps a pepper spray in her bag as the lane in which her ad agency is located is quite isolated and getting a cab is not easy.

Last Wednesday, she was chased by a few goons in the same lane while she was walking down the lane looking for a cab.

At first, she thought of pulling out the pepper spray in her bag but did not as there were 5 to 6 men following her.

Adding to her agony, there was a cab strike last Wednesday and therefore she had to walk fast for quite some time till she approached a busy lane.

One man fighting six to seven street-side goons can only happen in Bollywood movies. In real life, you need a much more practical solution. Luckily, Naina’s elder brother had gifted an iBall Andi Udaan on her birthday last Monday. iBall Andi Udaan is a phone with an SOS button for emergency.

What happens next?

Naina had stored the contact numbers of 5 people whom she wished to inform in case of an emergency. The minute she pressed the SOS button -
