May be you know her!
May be you know her unknowingly!
Because, you may have her in you!
I came to know about her recently….thanks to the movie Neerja! Later, I tried to know her a bit more, and bit more….she just amazed me!
People can talk about presence of mind, courage and compassion. However, when the real situation comes, many forget or get puzzled.
In case, if you face a situation where you may be killed at any moment, how can you care many fellow human and be compassionate? Rather, we tend to save self!
She never did speeches on courage, compassion and commitment, but when she was put into the real situation in front of guns and terrorists…Oh, salute you – You saved 359 lives out of 379 on board passengers on Pan Am Flight 73.
You had chances to leave behind some of them and still save you…but..
….. finally you gave your life at a very young age of 22….to save 3 American Children!
For her bravery, the Government of India posthumously awarded Neerja Bhanot, Ashoka Chakra Award, India’s highest gallantry award for bravery in the face of the enemy during peace time. She is the youngest recipient and the first woman recipient of this award
"Her loyalties to the passengers of the aircraft in distress will forever be a lasting tribute to the finest qualities of the human spirit."
You showed the world, the power and value of a young woman...what she can do even when the guys ran away from the scene! You left everlasting inspiration to many.
I am sure, those 3 children, now youngsters would have imbibed you as their guiding light…
Even when you were dying, you conveyed a message ‘Keep Smiling….’
Yes let’s keep smiling and keep you (Courage,Compassion and Commitment) in our heart and brain.
Thank you for saving so many lives,
Thank you for making us proud,
Thank you for that inspiring smile…
