Our group of activists passed by Asoke area during the beginning of April. We found that there was, at full scale, an ongoing footpath work alongside the main road.

A real life-threatening moment.

Accidentally, I met a foreign family with a baby in stroller at the platform floor so we had some conversation then. I told them that today was the first day for the lift’s operation. They were so friendly and I didn’t forget to take a picture with them. Their smiles were beautiful and I wanted to share it with all of you.
