CHENNAI: A human chain was formed along Pullianthope High Road recently.
A line of a thousand concerned men, women, and children bearing signs and placards denouncing drug use was seen.
The anti-drug rally was organised by Asha Nivas, a non-government organisation that works with children and women on issues such as HIV/AIDS and drug abuse.
Asha Nivas' human chain comprised different members of the community, including women's self-help groups and school children. Lilly Josephine, Chief Community Development Officer of Asha Nivas, said many of the demonstrators belonged to that community and it was important to 'empower them to reclaim their community from drugs'.
