Akshay Kumar Has an Idea to Help Families of Martyred Soldiers. And It’s worth Thinking About.

On the eve of the nation's 68th Republic Day, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is thinking of Indian soldiers and how regular citizens can honour their sacrifices.

Akshay Kumar Has an Idea to Help Families of Martyred Soldiers. And It’s worth Thinking About.

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar wants to honour  soldiers who lose their lives serving in the Indian Armed forces and he wants the help of civilians to find the right method to do it. The actor has published a video on his social media platforms where he thinks aloud about developing an app or a website that will accomplish this goal.

In the video, the actor notes that while the government currently provides financial compensation to families of fallen soldiers, he wants to create a platform where the citizens can also get in touch with those families and help them personally.

He says, “It’s my wish that in our country, there is such a website or an app that directly connects families with those who want to help them. A platform where the bank account details of these families are made available almost immediately along with information on how many people were financially dependent on the solider.

Details of the account will be removed when the donations for the fallen soldier touches Rs. 15 lakh, ensuring financial stability for the family.

 

The video has gone viral with over 30,000 ‘Likes’ on Twitter alone for the tweet. Many have not only appreciated the actor for his initiative but have also provided their own recommendations on how this website or app could be implemented.

Currently, the National Defence Fund accepts voluntary funds from the public that is used for the welfare of the members of the Armed Forces (including Para Military Forces) and their dependents.

However, if Akshay Kumar is successful with what he has proposed to do, then it will become yet another avenue for the public to honour the sacrifices made by Indian soldiers.
