India, for the longest time, has fought anti-national elements that threaten peace and security of the country. And when I say India, I mean selfless soldiers who have given up on the comforts of their homes and jawans who are guarding the Line of Control so that people like you and me, can have a good night’s sleep!
In fact, many a time, the aforementioned national service calls for sacrifices that otherwise may seem unreal. Sacrifices that find the way into the headlines and sacrifices that snatches away sons/husbands/brothers from families, forcing them to live a life of void. The pain is unimaginable, not to forget, the financial hardships that befall after the irreparable loss…
And while there is hardly anything that can repay the debt of their duty, we are fortunate, we still have bleeding hearts who are doing something we all should.

Speaking at the occasion, Chanda Kochhar said,
As per the bank, this fund will be used for two programmes to support the daughters of the armed forces. The first will be towards the post-graduation education of the widows of ex-servicemen as well as to support education for their children. The second will provide financial assistance for marriages of the daughters of the ex-servicemen.
Isn’t it just what you wanted to hear?
This is not the first time ICICI Bank has gone out of their way to commit towards nation-building through initiatives that promote education, knowledge and sustainable livelihood.
Earlier, the institution had propagated the message of how women of today should invest in their future and encouraged them to fund their own worth with an aptly-worded presentation by Konkona Sen Sharma. Kudos to these efforts! And cheers to the positive change. Hopefully, we will have more and soon. 🙂
