Surat mill prints sarees with Pulwama martyrs’ pictures on them; to donate profits to families
Surat, Feb 24: The entire nation is having a high nationalist emotion ever since a bus of CRPF jawans was blown up by a suicide attacker in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on February 14.
From cricketers to celebrities to businessmen and of course the common man, it's just not Pakistan is strongly condemned for the attack but also aid has come in thick and fast.
Recently, even a late beggar from Rajasthan made the headlines after the custodians of her live-long savings donated them to the families of the Pulwama martyrs. In Chhattisgarh, a food vendor offered Rs 10 discount on a chicken leg piece to those customers who said "Pakistan Murdabad".
Also in Rajasthan, a youth got names of 71 fallen Indian soldiers, including those in Pulwama, on his body. The atmosphere is indeed charged up with nationalist feelings.
