Commuters at the bustling Bharat Nagar Chowk were in for a surprise on Tuesday. For the first time, they got appreciation for wearing helmets and seat belts and those who did not were too presented with a token of advice but in Gandhigiri style.
City-based NGO Divam Khula Aasman is now on the job to distribute yellow smileys to people at busy traffic signals. The smileys are both for those who follow rules and those who do not. While messages in Hindi and English have been printed on them, volunteers ensure that the token of concern and love is given with a smile on their own face.
The messages read: Someone is waiting for you at home; thank you for wearing helmet; thank you for wearing a seat belt; you are born for a purpose, live for it; and shukriya seat belt pehanane ke liye. The NGO is on a mission to distribute at least 7,000 smileys till July 20, and is targeting areas like Bharat Nagar Chowk and Hero Bakery Chowk which witness heavy jams.
Voila Aditya Kapur, a trustee of NGO, said, “Traffic police talks with a stick, we talk with a smile. We are sure it will make a difference. We got this idea from movie Lage Raho Munnabhai but instead of giving flowers, we decided to give something that can be kept forever.”
