Some users also brought to light the inspiration that Disha Ravi is for the society.

Ravi has been a climate activist, has worked on multiple clean-ups, and tree-planting drives in Bengaluru and brought attention to the meat industry's cruel practices.

The Google ‘toolkit’ for which she has been charged is a document that was tweeted by Greta Thunberg. Popularly, toolkits are nothing but Google documents which are used to prepare social media campaigns to provide easy access to everyone who wants to join.
