In Totagalu area of Jangamakote village in Chikkaballapura district, travelling after dusk is mostly forbidden for women and girls. Men also avoid stepping out of their home unless it's absolutely necessary. Reason: The area doesn't have a single streetlight. As crimes on streets were rampant, residents began thinking twice before stepping out. And that's when children decided to get things fixed. The route they took was simple: Makkala Gram Sabhas.
