    Lets celebrate the little deeds, small gestures that help us prove our love to our nation and make our society live with a bit more happiness than before. It necessarily does not have to be you but anyone in your friends or family circle or anything you come across over the media or anywhere, that inspires you and you think will inspire us as well, share with us those moments. Like someone taking a stand against exploitation of a foreigner at a busy marketplace being charged extra money for the same product, or like the auto-rickshaw driver who stood alone in the way of a few drunk men attempting to gangrape some girls at the Gurgaon-Delhi highway, etc.

    There are many unsung heros. Lets try to atleast recognise & applaud every little effort that they made for the sheer love of their country, duty & responsibility to the society.

    Thank you for being the first to start a thread who's time has come. Since, I have lived overseas ever since end of October 1975 there have been lots of news about daily hero's in the West therefore it is only appropriate that we do the same in our Janambhumi. I hope people who intervene also take precaution that no one except the criminals get hurt due to their actions.

    A college student Sharif Ibrahim Kutty, chased down a crazy bus driver who went on a road rage, killed 9 and injured 27 in Pune. The incident happened in January this year.

    I didn't know but there is actually a programme on CNN-IBN named as "Real Heros, ordinary people extraordinary service."
    There are lot great stories in that program. I'm just posting some of the videos -

    Thank you once again for posting this informative video. Lot of ideas are flooding in my mind and I would like to locate this great human being who is setting the road map for future teachers around the world. It was very touching and moved me with tears of joy and enthusiasm. Great Leader, we need more like him all over the world.

    Unfortunately in INDIA if you raise against any evil of the society, either you will be effected directly or your family members are effected by your doings and in some cases you may end up loosing your life or your dear one's life. No one will be behind you when this happens and after you or your family member die all of a sudden the media poses a great story of your courage, for their TRP ratings and make a fuss out of the story and will say we were the first to bring this story to the public's view and this made the GoI to act upon the wrong doers and the GoI makes a cover up of the whole issue and then the matter is on all the news channels and every news channel will claim something for themselves and after one week of airing of the news of BRAVERY, nothing good will come out of it and the wrong doers are not punished, they get bail and roam free and again do the same.......

    And that is what differentiates them from the commoners. They persist when others give up.

    Its very much the same even for the low ranking military men of our armed forces. They know that their govt. is corrupt, they know that their nation might not remember their name 10 years down the line, they know that the future of their wife, children, parents will be in jeopardy, but still we see they make up for the most number of martyrs. That is what makes them "Special".

    At borders and forward post there is nothing call ranks, all look the same and talk the same so does eat the same..

    At the end of day the other man cover you and you do the same in return..

    Saying rank when it comes to war dead sound very distasteful..

    I like your style and your positive attitude.

    I support you in this endeavour to bring to the fore people who change lives, save them and touch them in an act of selfless self-sacrifice to their society and their nation, day in and day out, everyday.

    I'd like to suggest to DFI members, that if you have some free time on the weekends- even if it is one or two hours at the very most, that Teach for India is a great way of making a difference.

    Teach For India
