India's Heroes is an anonymously written story revolving around the heroism of people during the 26/11 attacks. Here is a summary:
The teacher of class 8 A, Mrs.Baruah, had given the students a task to prepare a speech on whom they want to be like. The children were excited and were prepared.A student named Ajit Basu spoke about wanting to be the best cricketer in the world like Sachin. Gayatri Chhabra talked about how she wanted to become a social worker like her mother. Sanjay Damle described the thrill of flying a plane.
Atlast it was the chance for Kabeer to speak. He was not very good at making speeches, but this time he had put his heart in the assignment.
First, he spoke about wanting to be like Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan, who laid down his life fighting the terrorists of 26/11.(details in the story)
He went on to talk about the brave hearts who acted selflessly during the attacks, like Vishnu Dattaram Zende, who was the announcer at the CST platform and helped people get out of the station while narrowly missing a bullet aimed at his cabin.Kabeer said about Karambir Singh Kang,General Manager of Taj Hotel, who despite hearing about his wife and children's death, continued doing his job of helping the guests towards safety.
Then there were Hemant Karkare,Ashok Kamte and Vijay Salaskar, who died fighting terrorists near Cama Hospital. Kabeer spoke about Mohammed Taufeeq Sheikh, the Chottu Chaiwala who helped transport injured people to the hospital. There was also Sandra Samuel, who took care and saved 2 year old Moshe Holtzberg, whos parents died during the attack.Kabeer concluded by telling about the caretakers of the kabristans in Mumbai, who proved that terrorism had no religion by refusing to allow dead terrorists to be buried there. Thus, Kabeer touched each and every person's heart in the classroom, including Mrs.Baruah, who had to control her tears. She knew that before her were the pillars of tomorrow, who would help free the world of terrorism.
