“Action speaks louder than words”
This has been probably one of the most used but less implemented phrases in the world.
We many so called public figures and motivational speaker speak about changing the society but very few take up the initiative to actually prove their words and become an example for others.
Former India opener Gautam Gambhir is slowly transforming himself into one such special individual.
Say no to child labour
Gautam Gambhir has been an active speaker of issues happening at the national level in recent years. His outspoken character often creates controversies but he never keeps himself away from letting his opinion out in the public.
It seems that Gambhir has now decided to act on the getting rid of social problems rather than just talking about it. His wish to bring a change can be sensed from one of his latest tweet where he urged his followers on Twitter to quit the practice of child labour.
With the Independence Day just a few days away, Gauti took the opportunity to spread the awareness.
He tweeted: With dis flag I also sold my childhood 2 child labour.” Lets celebrate dis I-Day only thru digital flag to #stopchildlabour #SaveTheTiranga
The tweet has been made just a week after he announced his plans to start a community kitchen to ensure meals for the poor.
“Won World Cups, one IPLs, beaten opponents. Now time 2 win hearts & beat hunger. Community Kitchen #1 by Gautam Gambhir Foundation.” He added, “Compassion in my heart, a plate in my hand & a prayer on my lips ‘No one should sleep hungry.” The KKR skipper has launched a campaign to feed the poor free of cost in New Delhi. The batsman on his Twitter account said, “365 days, 52 weeks, 12 months, numerous hungers & Ek Asha #communitykitchen1 #ggf.”
Praise from Kings Khan
Shah Rukh Khan, the owner of IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders, praised the giant effort from a cricketer who leads his team took to Twitter. He urged the Gambhir to reach him out if he needs any kind of assistance in this initiative.
“Let me know my Captain how I can be of use to ur initiative. Bless u,” Shah Rukh tweeted.
