A pall of gloom descends on us every time we hear about a road accident out of the enormous number of yearly 1.2 million road tragic accidents globally. And we usually shed our tears off by either cursing our fate or cursing the drivers. We, as a human nature, tend to call our admirable drivers the epicentre of any road trauma! But Why? Is it their illiteracy, lack of road safety discipline, unexplored road rules that makes us think so? Maybe, Maybe not! Irrespective of any reason, over the past few years tempowalas have been oppressed for their harsh and rash driving in the city. At UDAN, we address this mindset and train our members to follow city traffic rules religiously.
The Traffic Police branch of Jaipur celebrated the road safety week from 23-02-15 to 28-02-15. It was a collective event by citizens of several valuable designations to instill the road safety values.
From time immemorial, we have seen a stratification of the society into layers. This has led to the major bifurcation of the famously known sects and sectors in society. However, some of these sects of vast importance have been forgotten and been pushed around to the sides of lonely bushes. One of them is – the class of vehicle drivers.
Imagine a day without any kind of driver. Our lives would just remain stagnant in their absence. Now try visualising a moment where we have eagerly been waiting for a delivery of some home décor and furniture products to furnish our new homes or a shipment of a brand new vehicle from a far-off location. Do we have the slightest patience in bearing the brunt of a shipment delay? No. Obviously not. It’s sad they haven’t been credited enough for their impeccable deeds, but it’s our very own tempowalas who play a major role in ensuring coherent and systematic dispatch of the necessary goods. Their service indirectly elevates the urbanisation of the country.
