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.
This is a fantastic idea and thought. I think changemakers like you need to seriously consider implementing this— Saji Kumar Krishnan (@sajik_krishnan) April 3, 2019
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. 😊🙏
