My Indian Favorites @ 2013 # 5 - National Disaster Response Force (NDRF)

Out of all favorites about which I've been writing here, writing about this particular one, i.e. about National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is going to be tough. It's always from within that I write here. Honestly, I had to check a lot about NDRF before start writing about it. In this world of so called globalization and multimedia, what comes to your mind first is what you are in touch with regularly. It's obvious that no one wants the disaster to be present every day such that we read/hear about NDRF. Along with the disaster, their support gets faded away as well, after few days of the nature's or man made infidelity. Hence one cannot be in touch with this team every now and then.

For those victims, who have been part of their rescuers list at least once in life time, they appear there around almost every day, if I'm not exaggerating. From their eyes if I have to write this post, it will end no where in terms of thanks-giving. As far as I'm concerned, envisaging of this team is a great step  in the history of India. I've learnt more about it from my all time first choice, Wikipedia. I do not want to create a duplicate here. Hence not entering into all such details. But I take full pride in appreciating the idea of establishing NDRF across the nation. I've also learnt that there is one under construction near my home town! It feels good and safe for the family and friends over there. The motive of NDRF, that they are ready to leave their lives and hopes back home while on the way to the victims' place, is the divinity in itself. On saying that I'd like to send my sincere condolences to the families of the NDRF personal who lost their lives in a chopper accident while on duty at Uttarakhand.

I'm not sure how to tell them to keep up their good work. If I say that I'm saying welcome to the fatalities. Well, it's understandable that the natural disasters cannot be stopped; they can only be anticipated against! I hope it will also be understood if I say ' Keep up the great work, NDRF'. Proud of you!
