There are some people who stand out from the rest. There is something that differentiates the extraordinary from the ordinary. There are some who just speak big words, there are very few who actually do something. In the wake of the Pulwama terror attack and the Pulwama encounter thereafter, there have been many celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, IAS officers, who have come forward to financially help families of CRPF jawans who lost their lives in the dastardly Pulwama attack.
Here are four stories of ordinary people who in their capacities have volunteered service to the nation in the form of help for the CRPF martyr’s families.
“When I saw the wives crying I thought what can I do for them, I sold my bangles and donated money to PM Relief Fund. The bangles were gifted by my father. People must come forward. We’re a population of 130 cr, if everyone donates even Re 1 each a lot can be collected”.
