The forgotten road | மறந்த பாதை

by Hasarel Gallage

The road that leads to Achchuveli Industrial Zone in Jaffna, spreading over 25 acres with 36 factories, was once a bustling road. Today this roads is in a bad condition and has not seen any reconstruction for the past 30 years. Daily the employees of the industrial zone, school children and hundreds of people use this road for their daily transportation needs with much difficulty. This road is an important component in the area with many key places including government offices, schools and the Regional Agricultural Society. "Transportation is an important part of human lifestyle and poor transportation cause inconvenience to people's everyday lives", says residents in the area with a plea for the authorities to look into the matter.  

Pirashanthini Thuraisingam, a young mobile storyteller trained under the "Mobile Storytelling" program launched by SDJF in collaboration with iVoice and Neelan Thiruchelvam Trust (NTT) wants the authorities to look into this matter and do the justice to the community.
