  • Matches with the striker
  • Allergy Tablet
  • Two mini candles (the birthday ones cut in half, they won’t go out easily in the winds and these two bits will last about 20 minutes. 
  • A sharp kebab stickNeedle and some thread (wrapped in the stick)
  • 4 Rubberbands (two in the stick
  • 1 with the matches and 1 outside the box)
  • 30 Feet of Plastic wire / fishing line (if its fishing line, you can even squeeze in 50 ft) (you can throw in a fishing hook also)
  • 4 safety pins
  • 1 Painkiller
  • 2 Paper clips (would be great if you land in a situation to pick locks ever!)
  • 1 small stub of hot glue (can melt over things and keep it together.
  • These are the ones you use in glue guns)
  • 2 Bandaids
  • 2 Exacto Knife blades, Medium and small, these are extremely sharp and very handy!
  • 1 metre Binding wire (thin and sturdy one, it will occupy lesser space)

  • 1 100 Rs note !
  • 1 Metre Duct tape (optional, you have to hold it with the rubber band outside the box)
