Recognising India’s unsung heroes who have gone out of their way to help those in need during the Covid-19 pandemic, the United Nations in India and NITI Aayog in partnership with Discovery channel are launching #BharatKeMahaveer. The campaign will celebrate Indians who have shown extraordinary kindness—extending a helping hand to the vulnerable. As a part of the campaign, a three-part series will air on Discovery Channel. The series will be co-hosted by Dia Mirza and Sonu Sood.
Dia shares, “People are bonding together to spread love, compassion and positivity through their actions, thereby ensuring that the most vulnerable are not left behind. I am proud to call myself an Indian and proud to be part of this excellent initiative.” Adds Sonu, “The recent time has been painful for humanity. During this time, some individuals with extra-ordinary sense of empathy for fellow citizens gave away everything they had.”
