ABP Majha honours unsung heroes of Maharashtra at its annual event ‘Shourya Puraskar’

This year ‘Shourya Puraskars’ were awarded to eight brave individuals.

Mumbai: ABP Majha has recently hosted an annual event 'Shourya Puraskar' at BKC Trident in Mumbai. This event is an initiative by the channel to recognise and celebrate the courage and heroism of common people across the Maharashtra region. Dedicated to celebrating the bravery of the common people, the event was aired on 26 January  on the occasion of Republic Day.

The event was graced by Maharashtra chief minister Eknath Shinde, Maharashtra ex-chief minister Ashok Chavan, Mumbai police commissioner Vivek Phansalkar (IPS), and veteran TV & film actor Shivaji Satam, who also felicitated the bravehearts.

This year ‘Shourya Puraskars’ were awarded to eight brave individuals who selflessly put their lives at risk for others. The recipients of the award were - Kishore Gadhe, Namrata Kale, Pravin Rathod, Latabai Koli, Mayur Patil, Sanjana Pavde and Satish Kamble.

    Kishore Gadhe jumped into a flooded river and saved three lives.

    Namrata Kale jumped into a well to save her brother’s life.

    Deepak Gharat who was also one of the recipients of the award ran to rescue a family trapped in a fire and saved their lives.

    Pravin Rathod was awarded for evacuating 25 people trapped in a fire due to gas leakage.

    Latabai Koli saved her life from a leopard by swimming for 13 hours in flood waters.

    Mayur Patil received the award for showing exemplary courage by saving the life of a girl from a knife attack while sustaining a few stabs himself.

    Sanjana Pavde was awarded as she fought away a leopard to save her husband from certain death.

    Late Satish Kamble was posthumously recognised as he suffered a heart attack while driving a school bus, yet managed to control the bus and stop it, saving the lives of the children inside. The recognition was received by his wife Pramila.

These heroes remind us that courage and bravery come at a certain cost but are worth every bit of it. In honour of their heroic acts, ABP Majha felicitated them for their exemplary courage.

This felicitation of selfless acts is part of ABP Majha's vision to serve as a beacon of hope and courage. By honouring their heroism, the channel hopes to inspire others.
