The Northlines - - HILL DISTRICT - NL COR­RE­SPON­DENT REASI NOV 08

To strengthen the bond be­tween the lo­cal pop­u­lace and Army, a lec­ture and demo on Road Safety Day was or­gan­ised in Chasana mar­ket. The event at­tracted a huge pop­u­lace in­clud­ing driv­ers who reg­u­larly ply on these roads. A to­tal of 97 civil­ians were present dur­ing the lec­ture. The lec­ture en­com­passed DOS and DONTS while driv­ing. Lo­cal Po­lice was also pitched in to pro­vide an over­view re­gard­ing the fre­quency of ac­ci­dents in the re­gion. It was fol­lowed by screen­ing of movie on "Road Traf­fic Ac­ci­dent" and ad­ver­tise­ments to sen­si­tise the lo­cals about safe driv­ing prac­tices.

The movie served its pur­pose of uti­liz­ing a pop­u­lar medium for dis­sem­i­nat­ing an im­por­tant mes­sage. The in­ter­ac­tion evoked a pos­i­tive re­sponse which is likely to per­co­late down to all res­i­dents. It was heart­en­ing to see enor­mous zeal, en­thu­si­asm and in­ter­est among the peo­ple who re­quested for more such events in fu­ture. The event surely strength­ened the Army-awam con­nect.
