“Aunty Namaste, Behanji Namaskar!” Almost every person from the Khoda Colony of Ghaziabad, UP, greets Dorris Francis – the lady in white salwar kameej- while crossing the National Highway-24. Most of them do not even know her name, but they all respect her for the selfless service she does here every morning. Holding a stick in her hand like a traffic policeman, 57-year-old Dorris controls the traffic at Khoda Colony Cut, which is one of the busiest cuts on NH-24, every morning. She has been doing this since many years now.

She knows how important her job is to rush-hour commuters on the accident-prone Aitbaar Pushta intersection at the Delhi-Ghaziabad border on NH24. Dorris lost her 17-year-old daughter, Niki, six years ago after a speeding car crashed into their autorickshaw at this very spot. Months later, the grieving mother took up her “post” to ensure no one else suffered Niki’s fate.

“We appreciate the kind of service Dorris is doing by supplementing the work of police in traffic management.” said Dharmendra Yadav, SSP of Ghaziabad.

Dorris’s son, who drives an auto, helps run the family. “Till I have life within me, I will continue with the work. I will ensure that not a single life is lost to rash driving. If God has given me the gift of life, it should be used for the benefit of society at large,” she says.
