My name is Sumana Das, I’m a 35 year old lady living in Kolkata, West Bengal, India. My height is 4'7½".

 Sometimes I find myself helpless during my journey to any place, office in particular through the public transport. From alighting the bus/metro/train till disembarking, I find it difficult to keep my balance when I don’t get a place to sit. This is primarily due to all the handle bars installed to hold on to, are placed so high that a person of my stature, cannot reach and hold them.

  I am not demanding any special seat for short people. I just want some iron/plastic rod to be placed strategically at lower height or to make a provision over the seats which can be hand held.

 I therefore request to the appropriate authority to take suitable measure and give recommendation to the transport authority to make provision for people suffering in my condition and facing day to day challenges to move about in the city in pursuit of their livelihood, as well as save us from getting physically harmed which is recurrent when we travel without access to safety rod.

 Please sign my petition Short People.
