This is one of the forwards I received. This incident occured in Delhi, India; and almost every part of the world was touched by this irrefutable fact.

A year ago in-front of his eyes his girlfriend was brutally raped by six bastards in a running bus of Delhi.He fought till the time he was beaten to blue with an iron rod.They broke his leg,robbed him, snatched his mobile & left him almost naked apart from inserting a rod inside the genital of his girl friend after raping her.He fought till the time he could.Then in that chilling cold night he was thrown from the running bus along with his girl friend.They were naked,drained,exhausted & both were bleeding for different reason.In that situation he tried to stop passing cars & kept on begging a piece of shawl to wrap his naked girl friend & finally he got it after 40 minutes.Then he took her to hospital,admitted her,called police,called her parents & did every possible co-operation that a true friend should do at the hour of need.He could have flee from the bus – he did not.He could have leave her on the road – he did not. He could have claim fame & money ( as the shameless father of Nirbhaya took Rs 25 lakhs from UP CM,a job for his son & many more from many people by his daughter’s name ) – but he did not.He could have claim his treatment money from Govt – he did not. He could have become the most frequently seen face in electronic media in exchange of money – he did not.If this is not the friendship then what friendship is ? When the entire country roared for the girl no one thought what this boy has done on that night.He is not a film star or a cricketer.He is Awindra Pratap Pandey a boy from Gorakshapur in UP the boy who loved his girl from the core of his heart.When he is there why we Indian will celebrate friendship day on 3rd August to copy Americans ? We should celebrate friendship day in India only on 16th December to salute the spirit of Awindra who proved what friendship means. Let 16th Dec an official friendship day in India .

Am I talking sense ? If yes then please share this & give your opinion here.

Make FB & whatsapp a right platform of social awareness.

  1. Amazing post Fatima…I will promote it on my Fb too…do you mind if I reblog it…I agree with every word of yours…thank you so much for again reminding us all about that brave boy…

    • Yes stacilys, this really is a heart wrenching story. I and plenty of other Indians have shed tears on this incident. He indeed is a brave and honourable young man who stood by his girl at such time. It happened on 16th December, 2012.
      I pray and hope that nothing such happens to any other girl.

      • Actually, I think I vaguely remember seeing something about this in the news, now that I think about it.
        I also pray and hope that such a horrendous act doesn’t happen to any other girl. ๐Ÿ™‚
