Only recently, a Mizoram kid set an example for us all with his compassionate and purest act of trying to save a chicken that he accidentally hurt. Now, we have another kid trying to make this world a better place with her effort and initiative.
An 11-year-old Mumbai girl wrote a letter to Anand Mahindra, Chairman of the Mahindra group, putting forth a suggestion to control noise pollution.
In the letter, this little genius mentions that people do not understand that 'honking doesn't make the vehicle move'.
She also suggests a solution to this menace-
I have a suggestion that if you can only honk 5 times in 10 minutes and the honk will only last for 3 seconds. In this way the noise will be minimised. And our roads will be quieter.
At the end of a tiring day, when you see something like this in the mail..the weariness vanishes...I know I’m working for people like her, who want a better—and quieter world! 😊 pic.twitter.com/lXsGLcrqlf— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) April 3, 2019
Anand Mahindra tweeted a picture of the letter, delighted over her thought, and being assured of the fact that he's working for 'people like her, who want a better and quieter world'.
Netizens are hailing this creative thinker and have also dubbed her a 'changemaker'.
I appreciate her thoughtfulness at this age. How certain things even children understand but adults don't?— SAMRITA™💐 (@4SMSamrita) April 3, 2019
It is really sad that many educated people too don't follow traffic rules.
Great idea! You must implement this idea and also take advise from her if necessary. 😊— Shubham Gujarathi 🇮🇳 (@IndianGujarathi) April 3, 2019
Dear sir, request you to encourage her to help build the tomorrow that she wants. She took a great initiative to write to you. Please guide her further on how she can make what she desires possible.— Teja Vardhan (@TejavardhanP) April 3, 2019
Brilliant idea brimming with commonsense. Could only come from a child. Would love to see your take if a honking frequency could be pre-set in cars.— Harsh Kathuria (@Hershkathuria) April 3, 2019
Real problem solver and feels like that is the solution. Hats off to the age and the thought kid has.— Satya Gp (@gpsatya) April 3, 2019
Excellent thought by a 11 year old. It's been 3 months, I have completely given up on honking. Not a problem at all. Her recommendation should definitely be mandated by authorities and implemented by vehicle (esp 2-wheeler) companies.— Saurabh Shah (@shahsa2003) April 4, 2019
How sweet...Children see the world through a lens we've almost forgotten to clean & rinse.— Gomathi Karri Reddy 🇮🇳 (@GomathiKarri) April 4, 2019
It would be nice to see her suggestion being implemented. 😊🙏
