Indian authorities opened International Jhula Bridge to help a Nepalese girl get treatment in India
Bengaluru: India has always been an epitome and exemplar of values and virtues.
The latest exhibition of such a trait comes as Indian authorities opened International Jhula Bridge to help a Nepalese girl get treatment in India.
This incident comes in Uttarakhand’s border district Pithoragarh.
As Indian authorities learnt of the serious condition of the Nepalese girl, they opened the bridge for 20 minutes.
A website noted that the opening of the bridge helped her family arrive in Pithoragarh for her treatment in the wake of her deteriorating state.
It adds that the family appealed to the Pithoragarh district administration with the help of social workers in Nepal for help. Indian authorities and the district administration swung into action in order to help the family. The family has thanked the Indian authorities. From a medical facility in the Dharchula area, she would be reportedly taken to a hospital in Pithoragarh for treatment.
The opening of the bridge saw nearly 150 people cross over.
This generous move by India comes at a time when the relation between the two nations has become bitter, owing to Nepal PM KP Sharma Oli’s annexation of Indian territories.
After usurping Indian territories and altering the map of the country to include these legitimate territories of India, Oli had planned a bhumi pujan at Ayodhyapuri, which he calls is the birthplace of Lord Ram.
Reports had added that the construction of the Ram Janmabhoomi Ayodhya Dham in Nepal will include the placing of idols of Ram, Laxman, Sita, and Hanuman.
However, as Oli usurped India’s territories, his own countrymen have not taken kindly to it. Even prominent Nepali economists had rued Nepal taking away India’s lands and angering India would not be good for Nepal.
But the gesture of India opening up the bridge exemplifies Vasudaiva Kutumbakam.
