 Vivek Mehra one of the motorcyclists and Founder of IASH said that the auspicious festival of Diwali gives the opportunity to express our love and gratitude by honouring the families of our valiant martyrs. Under the 'Shaurya' campaign we have collected useful Diwali gifts for children of martyrs of Jammu & Kashmir Rifles (J & K Rifles), who are living, in the regiment's hostel at Jabalpur. The army has set up the hostel to take care of 65 children whose fathers were martyred fighting for the country. We have also collected video messages for them. We will travel till Jabalpur spend Diwali with the children and return on October 29.

Tricity's well known corporate, GBP Group, is  lending support to the noble cause under its CSR initiative.

Raman Gupta, Director(Marketing & Construction), GBP Group said that we had made all arrangements to collect the gift items both big and small at our offices in tricity. The idea behind the trip to Jabalpur is also to interact and get to know the needs of the children more. This in turn will help in working towards helping them for their future careers, via providing the right resources etc. The initiative will commemorate Diwali in the truest form. He congratulates IASH for making this possible.

Annupam Gupta, Director (Sales & Marketing), GBP Group said that we as a nation should always remember & respect the great sacrifice made by our gallant defence forces in protecting the country. Such measures will instill confidence and hope in the children & next of kin of martyrs that the whole nation stands solidly behind them as one.

Bhavpreet Singh the other motorcyclist and  Co-Founder, 'Shaurya India' said that the motive of the campaign is also to sensitise the civilian population about the need to get involved with the welfare of martyrs' next of kin, especially their children. It is not only the duty of the Indian Army but also the citizens to take care of them, as it is only because of their fathers incredible sacrifice, that we are able to breathe in a free nation.  

It is noteworthy that 'I Am Still Human' (IASH), is a Tri-city based NGO involved in multidimensional activities, aiming to empower the youth and redirecting their energies for the betterment of the society as a whole. Before this initiative, IASH has organised 7 Blood Connect Camps in association with the Indian Army, where the collected blood was provided to different Command Hospitals and AFTC, New Delhi.
