My old colleague Soumitra Sen (Soms) reached out to me last month. He is now the General Manager at Netsurion. A young engineer at his office had met with an accident riding a 2 wheeler, and Soms asked me to sensitize his team about road safety.
We planned the session at 6 in the evening to get good participation during the end of one shift and start of another.
Our presentation is now updated with the statistics from 2015, including the age and gender distribution.
It was heartening to see about 70 employees joining the session. The concept of Defensive Driving will now be well understood by the attendees! I liked the engagement during the discussion after the talk. The topics included “How to define overspeeding?”, “Bad time management is the cause”, “Potholes and bad roads”.
As Soms observed “We spend a lot of time of our life on the roads! It is imperative that we pay attention to safety on the roads”.
Thanks to Soms and Geetha for organizing the event, and their whole-hearted support to The Arundhati Foundation.
