When teenager Tejas who plays street cricket with his friends in a corner of Thiruvengadam Street in Mandaveli ran around the open space he observed something even residents may not have.
He noticed the ceramic water bowl that Blue Cross had placed at street corners this summer for street animals to quench their thirst.
Recently, Tejas noticed that the bowl had cracked and could not hold water any m ore. So he suggested to a mason who was at work in the street to create a cement bowl and fix it into the street corner.
An example of civic awareness and response that needs appreciation. More so since this comes from a teen.
