"This is an extremely overwhelming moment. But at the same time, I don't deserve this. I'm just a common man who helped his brothers and sisters," Sood said in a statement.
We started with organising food drives. And then I moved on to helping stranded migrant workers. It is just that the visuals of people walking a hundred miles to their hometowns kept haunting me for days and nights. I thought it was my duty to help them. In the process, I received immense love and respect from all quarters. They have honoured me with the title of a messiah, a superhero. A couple even named their newborn after me. I think I am really blessed," Sood had told The Indian Express.
