11-year-old advises Mahindra to cut noise pollution

Anand mahindra Letter
Mumbai, April 6: Mahika Mishra, an 11-year-old Mumbai girl, has in a letter to Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra Group, suggested how to reduce noise pollution on roads.

Mahika requested Mahindra to produce cars with the allowance of just five honks every 10 minutes, with each honk lasting just three seconds. “In this way, the noise will be minimised and roads will be quieter,” she noted.

In the letter earlier this week, Mahika wrote, “I have noticed many people honk unnecessarily, especially in traffic. They do not understand that honking does not make the vehicle move.”

Mr Mahindra whose Mahindra & Mahindra is one of the largest vehicle manufacturers by production in India, was delighted by the letter.

He took to Twitter to share a picture of the little girl’s insightful suggestion, written neatly in cursive handwriting with a pencil.

“At the end of a tiring day, when you see something like this in the mail, the weariness vanishes. I know I’m working for people like her who want a better-and quieter world,” Mahindra captioned the picture of the letter.

The tweet gathered almost 2,500 retweets and over 15,000 likes. Several people seconded Mishra and requested Mahindra to implement the idea in his vehicles.
