A hero battles for his life.

I was moved to tears when I read the story of Naik Raghubir Singh of the 2 Sikh Regiment. He had single handedly saved the lives of fifteen people who were buried under debris after the earthquake which struck J&K. He lost six of his equally brave colleagues who were with him on the rescue mission. He himself got struck in the head by a rock. This head injury has almost killed him. When I read about him he was battling for his life in the ICU of the Indian Army's 92 Base Hospital. He had been put on a respirator and his BP was almost nil. Let us pray that the valiant efforts of the Army Medical Corps team looking after him yield fruit and he survives. In this age of selfishness and cruelty we are lucky to have heroes like Raghubir Singh and his brave colleagues. Our jawans, airmen and sailors indeed keep us safe.
Read more about this brave man in this article from The Times of India.

Glad both of u liked this short note on a brave man. It is the selflessness with which some of us are able to give to others which makes such acts noble in nature
