As India steps into its 73rd year of Independence, Zolo got in touch with the real heroes of our country to show our gratitude for the service they provide to this great nation. The idea was to show some love and our appreciation to the men in uniform on the occasion of India’s Independence Day and also to celebrate the festival of Rakshabandhan with our brothers in the forces.
We at Zolo started this initiative a few days back by putting a box at our office in HSR Layout and asked our employees to drop chocolates, sweets, and most importantly Rakhee’s for our brothers in the defense forces. Finally, on 14th August, 5 employees of Zolo went to the CMP Centre located in Neelasandra, Bangalore with sweets, chocolates, and Rakhee’s.
The interaction with these men reminded us of how they spend their lives for the protection of our nation and everything else becomes secondary for them. Their duties come first, even before their own family. While tying the Rakhee’s on the soldiers, we realized that they did not even remember about Rakshabandhan as their jobs kept them so busy and mostly away from families. The soldiers were touched by the gesture and thanked us for taking this initiative and reminding them of the Rakshabandhan festival. In their words, this small gesture made them proud by reminding them that the citizens of India are always there for them.
We at Zolo want our brothers in defense forces to know that we all are behind them, always! We all are so proud and are filled with gratitude for the work they are doing for keeping us and our country safe and we will always be thankful for their service.
Happy Independence Day to you all! And a Happy Rakshabandhan! Jai Hind!
