Using a white cane

I fell from stairs today. I wish I could use a cane. But in India, this is not an option. I would get mugged and I don't know what else if others know I'm vulnerable.

Mostly I don't have problems, but at night, I find it difficult to guage surface changes on road. I've not yet stopped running in the evening though. But I am thinking of moving my running schedule to early morning.

Another thing which has been bothering me off late is self-defense. If I can't see what is coming, difficult to defend myself. I'm going to check this weekend for any self-defense training course if available nearby. Worse case I will order a pepper spray. 

For those of you who can use a cane, here is a "how to" video on Cane Travel
