Dear Murthy,

I am doing well. How are you doing. I congratulate you for getting first rank in the first semester. I wish to tell you one thing I faced when I was going to my school. Yesterday when I was going to school I escaped from a big road accident because of my hurry. The traffic police saved and gave me some precautions about road safety. So I want to share those to you also because you are also travelling 3 kms daily from your home to school daily.

Please do follow my suggestions.

  1. Cross the road at the Zebra Crossing….
  2. Do not run on the streets. …
  3. Always walk on the pavement….
  4. Do not stick your hand or head out of a moving vehicle. …
  5. Strap on seatbelts in cars. …
  6. Get off on the safer side of the car….
  7. Gear up for bicycle rides.

Wish you a bright future

Thank you raa.

Yours loving friend
BABU.
