Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
All of us have heard this quote by Plato. But most of the time, we’re so caught up in our own problems that we forget to be empathetic. Especially if the person on the other end is someone we consider our adversary. But a few amongst us remember. Remember that hate solves nothing.
Constable Rajkamal is a CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) jawan of the 133 Battalion. He was part of an exchange of fire with Naxal troops earlier this week. One among the troop (209 Commando Battalion for Resolute Action or CoBRA) was severely injured in the battle. He was promptly taken to a nearby medical facility.
When the doctors of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences, Ranchi, said that the wounded Naxal required blood, Constable Rajkamal volunteered his own.

If you have ever wondered why people tell you to ‘Love Thy Enemy’, this will eliminate all your doubts.
