New Delhi( CNN) The girls, dressed in colorful saris, giggle as they arrange themselves into rows.
It’s Friday morning in a small apartment in south Delhi, where about 45 females ranging in age from 28 to 50 are forming orderly lines.
These females are not waiting in a queue or getting ready for yoga; they are preparing to fight.
Authorities in India’s capital are increasingly trying to train girls to survive the hostile and dangerous environment they continue to face on its streets after a series of highly publicized rapes rocked the country.
India was also named the most dangerous country in the world to be a woman in a recent survey by the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
