A celebrated soldier, involved in several high-profile operations, like the Goa Liberation (1961) and the Sino-Indian War (1962) has been voluntarily clearing traffic on Bannerghatta main road—one of Bengaluru’s busiest roads—for the past 11 years. A former army man, Captain Modekurti Narayan Murthy after retiring started helping elders and children cross the road, and soon, he was placed at the major junctions to properly lead the traffic.
Captain Murthy, who is about to turn 83 this year, is planning to take his passion for road safety from roads to schools and colleges. He is an active part of the awareness drive on road safety that has been initiated by the Traffic Police to get children to follow traffic rules and educate their elders.
The idea of saving lives, be it in on the battlefield or on the roads of Bengaluru, continues to drive Captain Murthy to serve his nation. Unsung heroes like him inspire generations to be responsible towards one’s nation and their society and in turn, help create a better tomorrow.
