Mangaluru, Nov 25, 2015 : Assistant Commissioner of Police ( Mangaluru City Traffic) Uday M Nayak acknowledged Ms. Padmavathi, whose good Samaritan work goes viral on social media, for her good behavior while on traffic management duty in New Mangalore on the busy National Highway connecting Mangalore and Mumbai.
Nayak whole heartedly appreciated her good work and felicitated her in presence of her mother in Sub Divisional police station in the city.
Recently Padmavathi’s selfless deed went viral in no time, and within a couple of days, even garnered the attention of national online media. Doing the job of a traffic cop is hard enough, but here’s one lady, a home guard stationed as traffic policewoman, who has gone way ahead in making roads safer for commuters by doing something that should actually have been done by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI).
Nikhil Pai of Mangaluru’s famous ‘The 3 Hungry Men’ offered her bottle of cold drink and drinking water as a gesture of appreciation. Pai later uploaded a post on her work in Facebook. His post on Padmavathi’s got the attention of national online media.
Padmavathi’s concern for public safety is a lesson for all, and truly deserves appreciation. Here’s hoping against hope that the authorities would take a cue from Padmavathi and wake up, and do their job in making our roads safer.
