7 YO Offers Karnataka CM Her Pocket Money To Repair Pothole-Ridden Roads. How Innocent Yet Gutsy!

October 26, 2021 | by Priyadarshini Malavia

Kids say the darndest things, don’t you think? That’s the beauty of childhood, I believe. Having the innocence to believe and say things that might sound naive but makes sense in your little kid brain. It is also adorable how children are unable to understand how the world actually works. Remember a time in your life when things were just that simple—either black or white. This little girl in Karnataka reminded me of that simple time in my life when she appealed to Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai to fix the potholes on the roads; a concern that plagues the rest of us adults as well.

Seven-year-old Dhavani N made a video addressing CM Bommai as taata, which means grandfather in Kannada. She is a second-grader at Hegganahalli government school in Karnataka and her parents are construction workers hailing from Tumakuru district’s Tiptur. In the video, she can be seen offering her own pocket money and savings to contribute to helping fix the potholes. She states that she had saved the money to buy chocolates as her father gives her ₹1 each time she drinks a glass of water and she had managed to save up ₹ 40. How sweet!

Dhavani made the appeal video, shared by Times Now, as she was distressed over the news of an injured man running over a crater and passing away due to the accident. However, this concern comes from a place of personal interest. Two years ago, Dhavani’s mother Rekha Naveen also met with an accident due to a pothole and fractured her leg. She went as far as telling her parents that they should fill up the potholes on the roads after watching a video of a foreign girl filling up potholes in her own country.

“Grandpa, please tell us how will these families cope with their deaths?” is the question innocent Dhavani leaves hanging the video in reference to all the accidents these potholes cause. 

Karnataka roads are a major issue, because the girl isn’t the only one calling out the pothole problem. Some days ago, a woman wrote a letter to the CM explaining how people in her village are unable to get married because of the bad roads! Such a sorry state of affairs that a 7-year-old girl understands the importance of prioritising while the adults running the country aren’t able to. That question by Dhavani leaves us to ponder on the reason why such accidents aren’t being taken seriously and why such avoidable circumstances aren’t being improved upon.
