The horrific traffic conditions of Karnataka's capital city Bengaluru is no secret to anyone. During the peak hours, it takes people more than a couple of hours to reach home even if the distance is hardly a few kilometers. Most of us nag about the traffic situations sitting in an AC car on the way back from our high-paying offices. And then there are people like Mohammad Salman who even though lost his feet to Polio in his teens, decides to stand in the sun and handle the city traffic on the busiest of roads.
Here's more about the inspiring youth:
It gets really tough for the traffic police to handle the ocean of cars and buses on peak hours.
Meet Mohammad Salman. He is a traffic police warden in Bengaluru and is posted at Hens Circle near Central Library, Coles Park.
Four years ago, he approached a few traffic police officers if he could help them in any possible way. They were inspired by his dedication and got him authorised to be an official traffic warden. Police inspector Sathya Narayana Singh says, "We encourage his interest in controlling traffic. He informs us immediately when something big happens."
His father, Mohammad Qureshi, works in a slaughter house and his mother, Fatima Suria, is a homemaker.
We wish him a great luck ahead. Thank you, Salman. You are amazing! Let the world know more about this wonderful youth by SHARING this article more and more.
