Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer Awanish Sharan frequently shares fascinating posts that pique the interest of internet users. This time, Mr Sharan took to Twitter to share a video of a 22-year-old woman installing safety lights on bicycles to curb road accidents.
Khushi Pandey from Lucknow lost her maternal grandfather to a road accident. Her grandfather was riding a bicycle when he was hit by a car that couldn't see him. Since then, Ms Pandey has equipped 1500 free red lights on bicycles.
The 22-year-old can often be seen standing on key intersections of the city holding a placard that reads, "cycle pe light lagwao".
Along with the video, Mr Sharan wrote, "God Bless You."
