Whether it is the army,the navy or the air force,courage and commitment perhaps rules them all. The same is true for our fire-department workers who passionately give their energies and even time with family to save lives of people. With this feeling in mind,the Bhaidooj festival was celebrated by the Shankar Rao Bhoye Smriti Pratishthaan. As a gesture of honoring these great and promising men,the holy tilak and raksha sutra were tied and wishes of their long lives were hoped for by its members. Another promising and exemplary task was the collection of funds that was done for the families of fire workers who had lost their lives in the recent Thane mishap. Activities like these surely seem to lighten the festive season more and add a whole load of good will and cheer to these hardworking men.
