Bajaj V, the bike that
contains the metal of the invincible INS Vikrant, has launched a new initiative
titled ‘Invincible Indians: Stories that Invoke Pride Everyday’. This is an
initiative to uncover stories of ordinary Indians who by dint of their resolve
and determination perform extraordinary acts in the service of society. These
are acts that happen all around us, yet go unnoticed--Acts that are so powerful
and selfless that every Indian’s heart will swell up with pride. The initiative
also calls upon the public to identify and recommend other such Invincible
Five such ‘Invincible Indians’
were felicitated by a famous son of India who has himself made the nation proud
- Abhinav Bindra, India’s first individual Olympic Gold Medalist in the presence
Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto. Bajaj V also released five videos
that capture the inspiring stories of these invincible people.
Speaking on the initiative,
Abhinav Bindra noted, “I am extremely glad that Bajaj V has taken this noble step
in recognizing these individuals who have dedicated their lives in doing
extraordinary social work. Many a time, such heroic acts go untold and these
heroes fade away in the pages of history. I am truly proud to be associated
with this endeavor and urge every Indian to come forward in supporting it.”
Eric Vas, President –
Motorcycle Business, Bajaj Auto added, “V is a unique brand which has been
forged with the pride of the nation, the metal of the INS Vikrant. Our endeavor
is to make Indians feel proud every day. ‘Invincible Indians’ is our way of
bringing a few such stories of pride to the fore. We are honored to have
felicitated five such people today, but we also know that there are many more
people out there whose are doing equally good work and deserve to be recognized
and lauded for their selfless work.”
