Answer :

Bhimsen, The Hero

Source:- Dainik Bhaskar

Bhimsen, a resident of Kala Manjha village of UP had received the national bravery award for his extraordinary show of courage. Bhimsen was just 12 years old when he became the local hero of his village. On 16th November 2014, a boat packed with 34 people was sailing on the Saryu river when suddenly the boat hit a rock and toppled over and all the passengers fell into the river and were drowning fast. Bhimsen also known as Sonu was by the river fishing when he saw the incident. He was quick to react and call for help. He then dove in the river and saved the life of 14 people without caring for his own life.

Bhimsen belongs to a poor family and arranging for meal twice a day had been a challenge for his father Rajman. However, his father had been very happy for this announcement of reward. The award was presented to him on 26th January by the Prime Minister.

I like this story of the of Bhimsen as he bravery saved many lives and I hope I could be able to do the same someday.
