Adopt a hero
It is very human to forget things that are not present before us and more so, if we have never seen or experienced it. Our nation got independence more than 64 years ago. Most of the citizens who personally experienced the efforts and saw the light of Independence are not with us anymore. Our organization wishes to work on creating the awareness of the contributions of our Brave soldiers amongst the young generations.
The project is aimed at inculcating a sense of Patriotism amongst the citizen of our country. In an attempt to promote this we are fostering a concept of "Adopt a Hero" wherein the school would select one Param Vir Chakra(PVC) Hero from among the 21 PVC awardees for one academic year. The Warriors have fought the battles bravely for the safety and freedom of our country and have won the Highest Gallantry Awards i.e. Param Vir Chakra (PVC) for their bravery, many of whom are amongst us even today.
We are approaching your school with a request to display a photograph/ poster of the Brave war Hero who fought valiantly to keep us safe and free at Home. Along with a Photograph/ poster, the Trust shall provide you with a write up about the history of the event. To further consolidate patriotic feelings we shall invite Defence Personnel to visit your school and address the teachers and students.
To further the concept we shall also hold intra and inter school/ college quiz competitions on the subject of PVC’s. We are confident that you will support this selfless act and help us in inculcating patriotism in citizens of tomorrow. Kindly let us know the war Hero you would like to adopt so that we can supply the photographs/ posters of that PVC awardees. The list of the PVC’s are provided in our website i.e. www.joinncc.com.
