Women’s safety has been a big issue in India. For this, governments have not been able to take any concrete steps. Arvind Kejriwal government, elected for the first time in Delhi in 2013, promised to illuminate all the dark paths of the capital with street lights. But how much this promise is fulfilled, the women who go out at night in Delhi know better.
Google, the world’s largest online company, is now going to add a new feature to its Google Maps. The name of this feature is ‘lighting’.
The purpose of this feature on Google Map is to show the streets of the city which are illuminated. With its help, you can choose a safe way to reach home for yourself.
