Started as a venture to create a corpus to fund Trusts that work for the well being and support to the families of martyrs from the Indian armed forces.
My friend Major Akshay Girish, who was martyred in a terrorist attack in Nagrota on 29 Nov 2016, continues to help me even today.
I have promised myself that I will not let his name be forgotten and make people aware of his supreme sacrifice for his Unit and his country. I would encourage people to read about him and tell his stories so that his bravery and courage can be imbibed by each one of us.
This venture, which was started to support the families of fallen braves, has become our own salvation in the time of this crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Your contribution to our cause will go a long way and I urge our countrymen to support the local Indian businesses and help us in the path of dignity, self reliance and towards a bright future.
Akshay, during the tough times would encourage me by saying “This too shall pass!” and I believe that we need to hold each other as a unit and a country and This too shall Pass.
I thank you for reading this and I pray we see this through.
