Mann Ki Baat: PM Modi talks about Group Captain Varun Singh
In today’s Mann ki baat PM Narendra Modi talked about Group Captain Varun Singh who lost his life when a flying helicopter of Indian Air Force crashed in Tamil Nadu.
PM Modi told Group Captain Varun Singh had written a letter to the principal of his school. In his letter, Varun Singh ji didn’t brag of his valour; rather he appertained to his failures. He talked about how he converted his failings into capacities. The PM says that late Group Captain Varun Singh has inspirited the nation. Group Captain Varun Singh was flying ill- destined copter that crashed in Tamil Nadu this month. In this crash, we lost the first CDS of our country, Gen Bipin Rawat, his wife and several others. Varun had bravely battled with death for multiple days, but also left us.
When Group Captain Varun Singh was in the hospital, PM saw something on social media that touched his heart. This time in August only, he was awarded the Shaurya Chakra, after this award, he’d written a letter to his school principal, PM Modi read that letter in ‘Mann Ki Baat’. After reading that letter ( written by Group Captain Varun Singh), the first thought that came into his mind was that Captain Varun Singh didn’t forget his roots despite touching the heights of success.
