Sonu Sood Unstoppable: The Messiah For Many Amid Corona Virus Lockdown
The electrifying speed with which the actor has been extended a helping hand to others has already proved more than the worth of his formal education.
Known for his character roles in the movie, an actor par excellence has now emerged as a real-life hero during the Covid-19 lockdown period. Recently, this actor helped airlift 177 stranded girls in Kerala reach their homes in Bhubaneswar. Buses are being arranged and railway tickets are being provided to strand migrant laborers so that they can reach their destinations. This hero is working about 20 hours a day with his team and running a call center with a toll-free number. He is accessible to all and responding to many on social media. One pregnant lady, rescued by this actor, was so moved with his humility that she named her newborn after him. Yes, this messiah for many is none other than Bollywood actor Sonu Sood. Though, Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh praised the ‘Moga boy’, the entire nation.
Altruism is a vital trait of human personality.
Unfortunately, with increasing materialism, humanity has taken a back seat. The economic hiatus between the haves and have nots is alarming. People are becoming more self-centric, particularly in urban areas. This reminds me of the first mantra of the ‘Iso-Upanishad’ which says that “whatever moves in this world is enveloped by God. Therefore, find your enjoyment in renunciation. Enjoy through yoga or renunciation of self-will. Enjoy all things by renouncing the idea of a personal proprietary relationship to them. Sel-denial is at the root of spiritual life. Enjoy what is allotted to you by God.” It seems Sonu Sood has imbibed the spirit of the spirit of ‘Iso-Upanishad’ and is living these mantras in its true sense. His humility and compassion have won many hearts. He is grateful that God has given him this opportunity to become the source of others’ happiness.
It is not that others are not helping poor migrants and those in distress in the time of crisis. Superstar Akshay Kumar contributed Rs 25 crore to the PM-CARE fund. Many industrialists have also contributed to the PM-CARE fund. Many people have donated money to PM-CARE funds according to their capacities. However, the most wanting element of human touch was either lacking or missing entirely. The hungry and bare feet were seen happier with those who helped them reached their homes, rather than the various packages announced by the government.
Sonu has set an example,
Which each one of us can emulate to some extent. Fortunes may vary from person to person, but the humanity in us must not die. We must not tolerate people starving and dying in front of us. We cannot allow ourselves to become so insensitive that incidents in ourselves to become so insensitive that incidents in our neighborhoods don’t move us. Recently, I read a piece in the Times of India, written by prominent journalist Sagarika Ghose– ‘A letter of apology to the migrants who made our homes & highways’. Each word of that piece was not only true for its facts and charged with emotions but was also penned so soulfully that I couldn’t disassociate myself from the guilt of not having done enough for the poor for quite some time.
The electrifying speed with which Sonu has been extending a helping hand to others has already proved more than the worth of his formal education. He has proved that his education as all-encompassing – body, mind, and soul. Now that he has made room in many hearts, people are wishing that he must get better and bigger leading roles in movies after the coronavirus time is over.
