A 12-year-old boy, Ravi Teja, has taken upon himself the task of filling up potholes on Hyderabad’s Habsiguda main road after he witnessed the death of a toddler in a road accident, as reported by ANI.



A couple was travelling on a motorcycle with their child when, while trying to evade potholes, they met with an accident and the 6-month-old fell into a borewell.

Unfortunately, the child succumbed to the accident. This sad incident touched a chord in the heart of young Ravi. He took upon himself the task of filling every pothole that he came across in his locality, so as to prevent any such disaster.

A boy from Habsiguda, Hyderabad, Ravi decided to ensure that no one else meets with such torturous fate.

Earlier, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, in a review meeting on May 1, had directed civic authorities of the department of roads and buildings to fill up potholes in the state by the end of the month. He had also announced that required funds would be released from the budget and warned stringent action against officials if the deadline is not met.



It has been over a month since the deadline passed, but the condition of roads in Telangana, particularly in the capital Hyderabad, has gotten worse. Heavy rains have added to the problem.

Ravi Teja is the son of construction worker D Suryanarayana and homemaker Nagamani. He started collecting broken bricks, gravel and stones from nearby areas and filling potholes whenever he spotted them. Even as roads remain busy, he waits patiently to repair the roads.


The Logical Indian community appreciates the effort of the 12-year-old, at a time when generosity and concern for fellow human beings instils a sense of hope in us. It is heartening to see how a young boy has decided to play his part instead of remaining a silent spectator to an issue.
