Gautam Gambhir has always stood in support of our Indian soldiers. He has a soft corner for the jawans and cannot see anything bad happening to them. Remember how he had lashed out on Twitter when CRPF jawans were attacked in Kashmir? Apart from that, he also donated his entire IPL prize money to CRPF’s Sukma attack victims.
The cricketer has always respected the soldiers and so, he wants other Indians to do the same. No, he doesn’t want any monetary help from us, but wants us to show some basic courtesy.
Many a times, civilians come across soldiers but hesitate to say a “Thank You”. Don’t our jawans deserve to be thanked for protecting our nation by putting their lives at risk?
Well, Gautam Gambhir has shared a video on Twitter and it will make you realize how soldiers need to be treated.
Watch the video of his innovative campaign which is named “Remove jhijak ki patti”;

Gautam Gambhir appeals to people that whenever they see soldiers in uniform, they must leave all hesitation aside and click a selfie with them. Also, he asks everyone to make the jawans feel special by shaking hands with them.
This is the least we can do for them, right?
Here’s how Twitter reacted after watching the video;
Very touching. Very moving. Just brilliant! #Respect

What an inspirational message by Gautam Gambhir! Rather than talking big about “Deshbhakti”, we all should start with these small gestures.
