As the total number of coronavirus cases have already crossed 900 in India, there are many people relentlessly working to contain the virus spread.
In the midst of lockdown, there are certain heroes like sanitation workers, medical professionals, police officials, etc., who are leading the country in this battle.
One such hero is Ashraf Ali, who is in charge of sanitation for Bhopal Municipal Corporation.
As per NDTV, Ali’s undying determination to work for his country and countrymen came to light when he chose to stay and finish his work even after receiving the news of his mother’s death.
Talking to NDTV, Ali said:
“Nothing more valuable than one’s mother. After your mother comes your motherland, which is in danger. I came to know about my mother’s death at 8 AM, but also had my duty to my country. I went in the afternoon for the burial but returned to work later.”
At IFORHER, we salute Ashraf and all these real heroes, who are working 24X7 in order to save the country and its people from the deadly virus. Their stories of inspiring dedication repose our faith in the government agencies, officers and workers, and give us hope even in these dark times.
