ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsYesterday, we came across Babu Muddrappa, an auto driver in Bengaluru who took an abandoned pregnant woman to hospital, paid her medical bills and even took care of the baby as his own, when her mother fled. We salute Babu for everything he did for the mother and the baby. People like Babu are rare to find, but not impossible and this brings us to another unsung hero of our society, Maqbool. In case you didn't know, there is a curfew going on in riot-hit Hailakandi, Assam. In the ongoing communal clashes, Maqbool, with prayers on his lips, drove his auto-rickshaw as fast as he could to take a pregnant Hindu woman to hospital. © Pexels If there was a face for the idiom, "A friend in need is a friend indeed", it will probably be Maqbool's, who helped his neighbour Rubon Das and his wife Nandita in the time of crisis. Rubon was desperately calling his near and dear ones to help him arrange for an ambulance to take his wife to hospital, "I was trying to calm my wife down saying someone will surely come to take us to hospital in Hailakandi town." Nandita's pain increased, but no help came for them in the curfew hit area. © Pexels At that time, Maqbool heard Rubon's story and without thinking twice he rushed to his residence with his auto-rickshaw. Maqbool was only worried about whether he will make it in time or not, while speeding through the roads. He said, "I was trying to comfort them…. telling them everything will be fine. But I myself was praying." Thanks to Maqbool, Nandita who was in an advanced stage of labour, could reach the hospital on time and give birth to a boy who they have now named, 'Shanti'. Honestly, there couldn't have been a better name than that. © Pexels "We need more such examples of Hindu-Muslim unity and amity," said Hailakandi Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli, when she visited the new-born baby and the parents. She also congratulated Maqbool for helping his friend in the time of distress. Just when we think the society has become selfish and heartless, where no one wants to help one another; some people come around and make this world a better place to live in with their selfless acts of kindness.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIn a society where people don't want to 'meddle' or interfere in others' affairs, even if that 'affair' means someone dying on the road, can we imagine people going out of their way to help someone who is a complete stranger? Can we imagine someone coming forward to actually help instead of clicking pictures and recording videos? Ask yourself guys, How often have you gone beyond your way to help a stranger? But, Babu Muddrappa is different and probably that's the reason he deserves all our respect. © BCCL Babu Muddrappa, just like any other day, was driving his auto in Bengaluru. On April 15, while looking for passengers, his life changed in a way even he didn't expect. Babu saw a pregnant woman lying on the road, screaming in pain. Although there were a lot of people standing around the woman, nobody came forward to help. So without thinking twice, Muddrappa rushed the pregnant woman to a nearby hospital, but due to lack of facilities she was referred to CV Raman Hospital. Since the woman could barely speak and refused to give details about her family, Babu admitted her with whatever money he had at the moment. © Pexels Thanks to Babu's selflessness, the woman reached the hospital in time and gave birth to a baby girl. However, what happened next broke our heart, but also raised our respect for Babu. The baby was facing trouble breathing and the mother had abandoned the baby and fled the hospital. Babu wrapped the baby in a cloth and drove his auto as fast as he could, to take her to another hospital in Shivajinagar for better treatment. He used all his savings to admit the baby and took care of her like his own child, while praying to God for her health. From getting milk for the baby every day, taking care of all the hospital bills to going to police stations in search of the missing mother, Babu did everything he could in his capacity. © Pexels However, after a few days, the baby's condition deteriorated and she passed away. He told The Logical Indian, "My heart broke. I decided to bury the baby myself, along with some police officers. In those few days, I had developed love and fondness for the baby." He further said, "I do not know if the woman who fled will ever be found, or what will follow. While I feel sad every time I think of the little girl who died, I am also aware that I did everything in my power to help both the mother and the child." People like Babu Muddrappa make this world a better place to live in.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsThe Indian Army is an epitome of true valour and righteousness, wherever it's needed. They're almost invincible yet dignified, ferocious and mighty, as well as compassionate. And we only believe these things because we always read about the great work they are doing, while protecting our borders. Recently, the Indian army marched towards another great feat by rescuing a pregnant woman , who was stuck in bad snow to deliver her babies. On the 8th of February, a villager from the same village as the pregnant woman called the company commander of the Thana Panar Camp at Bandipur and asked for help to take his wife Gulshana Begum to the hospital there. Due to Jammu & Kashmir's heavy snowfall, the man couldn't take his wife, since the roads were all blocked and the temperature fell to about minus seven degrees Celsius. The situation was so grave that the woman had to be rushed to the hospital and she couldn't waste any time. © Twitter Upon hearing about the situation at hand, the soldiers of Bandipur National Rifles reached the woman's house, braving bad road conditions and heavy snowfall. They carried her out on a stretcher for about 2.5 kms, before putting her in an army ambulance. © Twitter The men had already spoken to the required doctors before they even reached the hospital in Bandipur, just so there wouldn't be any time wasted and the woman could have a safe and healthy delivery. Fortunately, upon reaching the hospital on time and after some check-ups, it was confirmed the woman would be having twins. If it wasn't for the army's presence in the nick of time, she wouldn't have been able to even make it to the nearest hospital. © Twitter Indian Army as an organisation has been taken for granted beyond measure time and again, especially in Jammu and Kashmir where they are vigilant day and night about terrorist activities. The locals aren't very fond of the army and they definitely have unpleasant feelings towards them. But more often than not, the army goes out of its way to help the local, sizeable population in any way they can and they recognise the importance of an emergency and lack of help in some regions of J&K. That's why they're always there, fighting every cause. Here's to the Indian Army for always lending a helping hand to people when they need them. We're sure Gulshana Begum's twins will have something to thank the Indian Army about. Who knows they might join the ranks someday!
With the death toll on a constant rise, thousands of houses destroyed, lakhs of people left homeless and seeking shelter in relief camps and scores missing; the situation in the wake of the deadly Kerala floods is only turning nightmarish with each passing day. Reuters Amid this crisis, we can't stop ourselves from saluting the Indian Navy, the NDRF and the local police for tirelessly working day and night to rescue the people stuck in deep waters. Thanks to the regular updates by the Indian Navy, we can witness the bravery and the courage with which their personnel are carrying out the rescue missions, and the risks they are taking to ensure people's safety. #OpMadad #KeralaFloods2018 #KeralaFloodRelief Some snapshots of Rescue efforts 1/n pic.twitter.com/TzH0hcag7b — SpokespersonNavy (@indiannavy) August 16, 2018 A few days ago, we saw how Naval rescue chopper pilot Cdr Vijay Varma and his men rescued a pregnant woman (whose water bag broke) from the rooftop of her house near Aluva. In another daring mission an 80-year-old woman was airlifted from a narrow rooftop. A pregnant lady with water bag leaking has been airlifted and evacuated to Sanjivani. Doctor was lowered to assess the lady.

God Bless them pic.twitter.com/ysrh1DVUx6 — SpokespersonNavy (@indiannavy) August 17, 2018 While the social media is filled with thank you messages for the Indian Navy, there's one gesture, in particular, that has caught people's attention and it is probably one of the most heartwarming gestures we have seen so far. To express their gratitude to the Indian Navy, someone painted a giant 'Thanks' on the rooftop, from where Cdr Varma rescued two women on August 17. The official Twitter account of Indian Navy posted these pictures. #OpMadad #KeralaFloodRelief #KeralaFloods2018 A Thank You note painted on the roof of a house where the Naval ALH piloted by Cdr Vijay Varma rescued two women. Bravo... pic.twitter.com/xsaD1RfeIk — SpokespersonNavy (@indiannavy) August 20, 2018 According to some reports, it's the same rooftop from where the pregnant woman was rescued and airlifted to a hospital. Meanwhile, people from across the country are coming together to help the flood victims in every possible way, be it by setting up relief camps, donating money and by providing necessary relief materials like ration, biscuits, medicines, milk, water and other necessary toiletries.
