  • They also have pasted over 2,000 stickers with messages about saving the girl child on trucks 
  • The couple has also provided 1,500 girls with books and other educational materials

“Be the change you want to see” is absolutely synonymous with Jaipur-based IRS officer, Hari Narayan Meena. With a selfless approach in mind, this man from Jaipur has been devoting his free time and holidays for the past 7 years as he felt accountable for a noble cause. He has taken the initiative of making people aware about the importance of ‘saving girl child’ along with his wife, Hemlata Meena. He is currently posted as a Joint Commissioner (Excise) in Delhi.

While speaking to indiatimes.com, he said, “When I was preparing for civil services, I was surprised to learn that when India was progressing in other sectors, the sex ratio was constantly on the decline since the Independence of the country. I thought what could be the reason for declining sex ratio. I started people making aware about it.”

He would also go to the Central Park in Jaipur to distribute pamphlets among morning walkers.
