ANURADHA GAUTAM – Her journey from an ordinary individual to a symbol of fortitude is a testament to the extraordinary strength that lies within us all. On that fateful night aboard the Mewad Express, when tragedy struck at Mathura Station, she found herself faced with a situation that would test her courage in ways she never imagined.

Amidst the chaos and devastation of the collision with the Goa Express, her instincts kicked in as she spotted two helpless children in distress. Without a second thought, she threw herself over them, using her own body as a shield to protect them from harm. Despite the intense pain and the weight of a heavy metal sheet pinning her down, her resolve remained unbroken. She held on to the children, refusing to let go, even as her own life hung in the balance.

Her selfless act of bravery that night serves as a shining example of the extraordinary courage that lies within each of us, waiting to be unleashed when faced with adversity. She redefined the meaning of bravery, showing that true courage is not the absence of fear, but the ability to act in spite of it.
