We often crib about the crime rate of our society but we fail to see the other side of the coin. Indian Police has been mocked at and maligned several times and Bollywood films have made it obvious that Police in India reaches the site only after the wrongs have been done. The criticism never seems to stop. In such a scenario, it is almost unthinkable to see the efforts that they are making and the changes that they are bringing about. Their dedication and commitment towards the nation is overlooked and they remain the unsung heroes’ of the police force.
Cases of exemplary courage are ignored and a single case of negligence is over-hyped. However, there are countless brave men and women in Indian police who have proved their mettle time and again. Not every police officer asks for bribe and not every other policeman shuns from his duty! We must stop stereotyping their image. Unlike us, their life is so tough and unthinkable. The sacrifices that they make cannot be understood by us. That is why Su-Kam and ITV Networks decided to publically honour the true ‘heroes’ of India.
Su-Kam, India’s best solar power solutions company and India News initiated the event ‘Shaurya Samman’ to honour Uttar Pradesh policemen. The gala event was held at The Taj in Lucknow on August 26th. The event was graced by Honourable Chief Minister of UP, Shri Akhilesh Yadav. Kanav Sachdev, Brand Manager Su-Kam, warmed the audience by giving a motivational speech. Shri Akhilesh Yadav being an excellent orator impressed the audience in his immaculate Hindi.
Present at the event as the Chief Guest, Shri Akhilesh Yadav honoured 9 state police personnel.
• Constable Kapil Kumar – for outstanding act of bravery
• Constable Martyr Bhudev Kumar – for bravery (Posthumous)
• Sub Inspector Rakesh Kumar Jaiswal – for outstanding contribution in solving cases
• FSO Shiv Daras Prasad – for outstanding efforts to save human lives
• Head Constable Madhusudan Singh – for his outstanding effort in traffic management
• Sub Inspector Harish Vardhan – for his outstanding efforts in community building
• Major (senior) Havaldar Ramdas Yadav – for his outstanding efforts in training & research work
• Inspector Sanjay Kumar Singh – for his outstanding expertise of cyber-crime solutions, and
• Inspector Avinash Chandra Mishra – honoured with life time achievement award
This wonderful initiative is a step towards changing the mind-set of the public towards the police force and also honouring the unsung heroes. It is only through events like these that the general public can understand the greatness of the sacrifices made by these men and women and their families.
Su-Kam is truly humbled to be associated with such a noble cause.
In the words of Sukam’s Brand Manager, Kanav Sachdeva, “This is the second event of this kind (in the earlier event, Haryana Police Force was honoured) that we are associated with as this thought resounds with the company’s policy. The company has always believed in ‘Ek Nayi Soch’ and Shaurya Sauman UP Police awards is a welcome change in the society that has only seen the maligned side of the police force! It was indeed a great event thanks to ITV Networks and all the people who are associated with the event. Great initiative to motivate the police force of UP state!”
