It’s not always the glam of Bollywood or controversy of politics which is worth publishing. It is at times a small and a sweet gesture which requires a mention across the internet.
Rasika Joshi, an 8-year-old girl, with her small-yet-substantial act has touched the hearts of don’t-know how many. On seeing her ideal, Aamir Khan’s photo with Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis, she curiously questioned the details about the photo from her father, to which her father delineated about the misery-struck life of farmers. After she got acquainted to the woes that farmers are sunk in due to the drought, she just asked her father whether she would be clicked too. In a jiffy, she fixed upon the sacrifice of her piggybank to the farmers.
Fadnavis too found it essential tweeting about this 8-year-old girl and make the world know this common-yet-uncommon figure.

Although, this piggybank’s savings will just act as an iota of bandage to the wounds-bearing farmers but Rasika indeed has inspired us to weave this ‘iota’ into ‘vast’.
It’s time to wake up the sleeping Rasika within each one of us.
