While the cyber world has a lot of positive activities and avenues for learning, it comes with its own risks, especially for children. According to the recent Microsoft Digital Civility Index, teens reported much higher and frequent online risks than adults. The report also found that parents can have the greatest impact on the digital safety of their kids, with a large number of teens placing their faith and trust in parents to keep them safe.
According to Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan, a Senior Psychiatrist, parents need to be more attentive and alert about their child’s surroundings in the cyber world. They should also watch for behavioural change caused due to emotional abuse online, and must take preventive measures. While they need to enable their kids with devices and access to the internet, to stay attuned and competitive, they must ensure, at the same time that the devices are equipped with the best safety and security features.

The programme highlights the accomplishments and successes of women and honors the multiple roles women play to make society better. She’s Mercedes is an Inspiration Circle; a place where women can connect and exchange ideas, share experiences and learn from one another; a hub for sparking conversation, offering new perspectives and supporting ambitions. Present at the launch of She’s Mercedes were distinguished women from diverse fraternities who have created a niche for themselves: India’s leading Fashion Designer Neeta Lulla, Pastry Chef, Founder of Theobroma, Kainaz Messman, and Alisha Abdullah, the country's first female national racing champion. Also present were Adhuna Bhabani - hair stylist and the co-host of BBLUNT, Aditi Kothari Desai, Head, Sales and Marketing, DSP BlackRock Investment Managers, Anupama Chopra, an Author, Journalist and a film critic and Preeta Sukhtankar – Founder of TheLabelLife.com. Speaking on the momentous occasion, Roland Folger, MD & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said that Mercedes-Benz’s philosophy of the ‘best or nothing’ is a notion that was originally embodied by visionary automotive pioneer Bertha Benz. As the first person to undertake a long distance car ride, Bertha validated the concept of the automobile, thus laying the foundation for a whole new industry and paving the way for the Mercedes-Benz’s success story. The pioneering spirit of Mercedes-Benz. She’s Mercedes is a global initiative by Mercedes-Benz to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of women in all walks of life. We at Mercedes-Benz India would like to challenge the stereotype that success is usually male-driven. With our She’s Mercedes initiative, we want to recognize the successes of women in India and their determination to overcome all odds to become distinguished. She’s Mercedes is an innovative and special platform by which we would like to showcase our love, respect and care for women. It is our unique way of paying tribute to their achievements. She’s Mercedes consists of networking events, a print magazine and a digital hub, the primary aim being to create a dialogue: Embedded in a mix of formats, exceptional women from different fields and industries give us their personal insights into topics all around business and private life, as well as how to successfully balance the two. The programme will provide an exclusive experience to female customers both on product level as well as in terms of being associated with brand. Exclusive invites will be shared with female customers to get an experience of product launches and various other events. We have been witnessing a sharp surge in the trend of women dominating the Indian luxury industry. The journey of being the prime influencers to being end customers was quite swift. Women today wear the hat of the head of the family. A recent survey conducted by industry body Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) concluded that highly affluent women in India account for an overall market share of about 15 per cent. Much of the spike in sales of Mercedes Benz SUVs is courtesy women buyers, they find SUVs practical, comfortable and safe as their functionality appeals to them. From an insignificant number couple of years ago, we have now witnessed women customers forming a significant 10-12 per cent of our customer base in India. These women patrons are mostly young successful professionals, entrepreneurs and they highly prefer our new design language.
