Does your kid take an Auto to school?

7 Mar

Heres a question that I have been itching to ask parents who send their kids to school by Autorickshaw.


Why would you send your kid to school in the most unsafe mode of transport. Have you seen the way your kids are loaded into these things?

What triggered this post? Well yesterday, I saw one of these contraptions which was so packed up that one of the kids was lying down across the laps of the kids with his head sticking out !!!!

Please don’t give me the “economic” excuse. Thats not good enough. And don’t give me this stuff about not having time. Make time. If there is no school van, drop your kid to school or change to a school that has a van.

No Autos please…

    The ratio of Auto to Vans has come down drasticaly in the sence that autos are few.

    However, it just isnt worth the risk in even a van with high number of molestations etc.

    Ideally you are the cause, reason of your ward so better sacrifice what ever and take care personally. Agolla andre your concience will prick you through out life time for one minor accident.

    I think there are lot of good school around the residential areas now.. The safer option would be to admit them there, if not you atleast somebody from home can pick them up.. Kind of convinient & good….

    Agree to what Vijay says, its an unwise decision to send up through those rushed autos(which I never got to travel during my schoool days :-))

    marthi vans sumos etc., are now order of the day
    authodalli makkalannu kurigala taraha tumodannu
    nodidare besara agtittu adare sakashtu janarige
    bere marga iralilla (for ex. veena no option during those days)
    iga kala badalagide.
    mohan helidahage vananalli saha sariyara no. iddre best.
    a post for social awareness
    thanks vijay

    I agree with Veena that there are a lot of good schools in the residential areas.. I am not a big beleiver in sending my kid to a “reputed” school if it means he has to spend hours travelling back and forth… but thats just my view…

    Mohan: Agree with you.. all it takes is one small accident..
