In testing times when our country is battling against coronavirus, there are some real heroes who are coming forward to risk their lives for us. At IFORHER, we are dedicated to celebrating the selfless deeds of these CoronaWarriors. One such Coronawarrior, who has set a leading example of courage is Nishu Kadiyan.
Nishu Kadiyan is a woman sub-inspector (SI) posted at Civil Lines police station in Moradabad. But she isn’t only a sub-inspector, she is a new mom of one-year-old daughter.
Recently, she was applauded for her determination when she was seen carrying her ailing one-year-old daughter in arms while performing her duty of nabbing lockdown violators.
Nishu Kadiyan’s daughter Niyati has been running a fever. And as the father couldn’t pacify the sick baby, who kept asking for her mother, Nishu was left with no other choice but to bring her daughter to work.`
After putting the face mask on, the baby refuses to go back home and sticks to her mother. Nishu has set a great example by showing the society how her motherhood responsibilities haven’t stopped her from performing her duties.
While holding her baby in arms, Nishu Kadiyan continues to perform her duties during the lockdown. Talking to the media, the woman officer said:
“The district is on the high alert and I cannot forego my duty so I have to manage the baby as well as my duty.”
Though Nishu has two children and a caretaker to look after them, her husband is equally supportive when it comes to taking care of kids. Sharing about her duties, the inspiring mother shared:
“Even though I am holding my baby in my arms, I have been performing my duty with full dedication and have booked many people who were loitering in the area. On Monday, we issued around 20 e-challans for violating the lockdown norms.”
While admiring her determination, the Superintendent of Police (city) Amit Anand said:
“It is laudable that the police personnel are conscious of their duties and are performing them even in adverse circumstances.”
It is heart-warming to witness this mother’s determination to serve its countrymen. While these heroes are prioritizing our families over their own, it is shocking to see how these real heroes and their families are harassed by a segment of society.
From pelting stones to verbal abuse, these real heroes are witnessing the worst form of harassment.
It is high time that we realize that without these frontline workers, we won’t be able to win our battle against coronavirus. So, if we don’t respect them or cooperate with them, we are bound to face the worst consequences of the deadly virus.
