What matters is that we need to be compassionate towards people who have been economically hit by two lockdowns since last year. We need to be compassionate towards each other and help each other in trying times like the Covid-19 pandemic. And we should come up with such initiatives regularly.” The covid warrior, officer Aadil has taken up a heartwarming initiative for the greater cause to make the world a better place.
