Nagesh Gagliya and Saumya Chandra

While most children their age would panic in the face of an emergency, they remained calm. When Saumya Chandra’s and Nagesh Ahir’s friend fell into a deep water tank, they rushed to help him. Having learnt disaster management, they caught onto his collar and saved his life. We salute their bravery and quick thinking.
