RAVI KRISHNA - IPS OFFICER ADOPTS A VILLAGE

Ake Ravi Krishna, Superintendent of Police in the Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh has adopted the entire village of Kapatrala

This comes around the right time for the village that has reportedly jeopardized by a series of faction killings and revenge murders, for which 21 people might face incarceration including life imprisonment.
The determinant Ake Ravi Krishna, Superintendent of Police in the Kurnool district of Andhra, decided to act upon the matter and took the first step towards the development of the village. Starting with getting the district collector to sanction an amount of Rs. 60 lakh for the construction of rooms in a government school, he has been actively involved in a variety of initiatives including the construction of roads and starting literacy programmes in the village.
The IPS officer is also on a mission to raise awareness on eye donation amidst the villagers. He had earlier composed a song, encouraging people to donate their eyes after death, which was reported and shared on several social media platform.
Titled ‘Kallanu daanam chey, nee choopunu daanam chey’, meaning ‘donate your eyes, donate your vision’, the song was sung by the officer himself.
Having pledged to donate his organs last year, the IPS officer has since inspired around 1.5 lakh people to register for 
eye donation and become a great source of inspiration for others.
