Children hail the Bengaluru Traffic Police as superheroes
13th “Traffic Police Day” was celebrated by the children of CMCA
Bengaluru: The 13th “Traffic Police Day” by the children of CMCA was heartwarming. The celebration by the CMCA, a non-profit organisation to bring out a keen sense of appreciation among children towards the contributions of the Police was grand in its own way.
The event saw the participation of about 2000 students from various schools across Bengaluru. A centralized event was held at the St. Joseph’s College, Shanthi Nagar, which was attended by about 100 Traffic Police and graced with the presence of Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic-East) Abhishek Goyal.
In the event, children hailed the Bengaluru Traffic Police as the superheroes without the cape. They commended their unending zeal and tenacity they displayed despite the numerous challenges. To reinforce the importance of their contributions, several students gave thank you cards to the Police, along with handwritten poems.
Abhishek Goyal, I.P.S, DCP Traffic East said, “Promoting the significance of the services that various groups provide is extremely crucial, especially among school-going children as they sow the seeds of life skills and values at a young age. These young people I believe will grow up to be active citizens.”
CMCA Chief Executive Officer Ashish Patel said “Bengaluru, with its rising population, both in terms of people and vehicles, has led to an insurmountable traffic problem. Despite the scorching heat and profanity of the citizens, the Traffic Police keep the city on the move. The importance of Traffic Police for everyday life is often forgotten by citizens, in the absence of whom the city of Bengaluru may be impossible to live in. Hope the message of Traffic Police Day will be carried to all citizens.”
In addition to the event, students from Bengaluru’s Private and Government schools across the city either visited Traffic Police Stations or invited the Traffic Police to their schools to celebrate and express their gratitude personally.
