Bhubaneswar: A music video album titled Traffic Anthem- Don’t Be a Fool Maano Traffic Rule to create awareness on traffic rules was released here at Press Club of Odisha, Sunday.

The women riders are still judged on the basis of their gender and not on their skills even as India has the highest percentage of women pilots in the world, she added. They also have plans to popularise the video by seeking government help, Sahoo further said.
