It has been 3 days to the ghastly Pulwama attack and entire world has come to support India during this tough times. From World leaders to opposition to each and every Indian around the world is doing whatever they can to lend support to Indian army and the Government. On 15th February, we broke the story of Surat based family who decided to cancel elaborate wedding and donate Rs.16 lacs in remembrance of the Pulwama martyrs. Today, we came across a similar gesture from an ISRO scientist.
ISRO scientist, Dr. Deepak Singh has opened a space themed cafe named Cafe Planet in Ahmedabad and planned to donate entire profit of first month to the families of the soldiers martyred in Pulwama attack. According to Dr. Singh, Cafe Planet was scheduled to open on 14th February. But they postponed the launch when they heard about the attack. Talking to BuddyBits, the scientist said,
We have decided to open the cafe today, and decided to contribute every penny of the profit collected in first month to the families of Pulwama martyrs.
He further adds,
We will not be charging a single penny to any Indian soldier or their family members who visit us until the cafe runs.
Scientist himself comes from a family that is associated with the defense services.
Deepak Singh is a scientist working in PRL (Physical Research Laboratory), one of the integral departments of ISRO which is focused on a planetary climate with a special focus on Martian climate.
Deepak’s father works in the defense ministry, in the department that creates weapons for our security forces; his grandfather was also in the same field. Both of his uncles, Mr. Vishwapal Singh Chauhan and Rakesh Singh Chauhan have served in the Indian Navy and his other uncle, Mr. Vijaypal Singh Chauhan has served in the Indian Army.
The scientist wishes to inspire Indians to contribute to the army welfare.
No matter what we do, we will never be able to repay the debt of the sacrifice our jawans give so that we can sleep peacefully at night; but we will consider ourselves lucky if our small gesture is able to inspire others to contribute to the army welfare.
Cafe Planet will open its door for the public in Ahmedabad tonight.
The space themed cafe is situated at Vaishnodevi circle near Nirma University in Ahmedabad. The cafe will open tonight and entire profit of first month will be donated to the families of Pulwama martyrs. If you’re in Ahmedabad, do pay a visit.
