We are a team of individuals, two journalists, Geeta Manek and Bhargav Parikh, with the support of many do-gooders. We have worked in major newspapers and channels in India for more than two decades. We also have the support of actor Manoj Joshi for this cause. After Pulwama happened, we were all angry and upset.
On 14th February, 2019, when Bisht's father was out to give wedding invitations to his friends and relatives, Bisht was out in Kashmir, defusing mines and saving lives. By the afternoon of 16th February, he had diffused 23 mines! Before he could disarm the 24th mine, there was a blast. He was martyred.
Today we don't remember his sacrifice. Today, we have forgotten. Give him a voice, give his family the support they deserve. We spoke to his family, we want to speak to many more families of soldiers in the future.
We don't want to let people forget the sacrifices. Which is why we want to make short films by visiting the families of such brave soldiers who gave their lives for the nation and bring forth their stories.
We made one film on our own budget and visited the family of late Major Chitresh Bisht, you can see it here: https://youtu.be/Yd4NHxtEEwU
Have you ever thought about how it feels like to lose your father, your husband or your son in a battle for no fault of his? How painful it is for the families to live out the rest of their lives? We know the soldiers don't earn enough. We know they struggle. We know they can never be replaced.
Let's help bring out their stories. Let's get them help. Let's make them famous.
Are you with us? Think about this - skipping your next fancy dinner in a restaurant and donating that money for this cause can make a massive difference.
