Stay alert, be smart and trust no one, are the golden words that I repeat to myself as I look at myself in the mirror, getting ready for yet another challenging day in Delhi. Being a woman who lives independently in the metropolitan that is infamous for registering the highest number of crimes against women, I’ve developed a fairly thick armour around myself. I don’t trust easily and I always believe in the worst intentions of people. I've been fairly proud of this outlook, but it has long hindered my experience especially while travelling. I find it extremely difficult to trust the kind people that I meet around the world.
