This is really a proud moment for Railway Protection Force (RPF) Sub-Inspector, Rekha Mishra.
Yes, the bold and brave policewoman has been showcased in Maharashtra State Board's Class 10th course book in Marathi during 2018 session.
This is really a big achievement for the RPF policewoman and the pupils who will read her special story.
As per reports, Rekha Mishra is the resident of Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh but she is posted at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) and has saved more than 900 kids from Mumbai's most active railway station during the past 2 year period.
Mishra has saved hoards of troubled kids, lost, abducted or runaway kids from different railway stations during the last few years.
The great personality joins her duty before time during the morning sessions and keeps on working till late nights i.e. over 12 hours of shifts. Each time Mishra is on the job, she tries to find kids "who are susceptible, and in quest of public to aid them."
While talking to media people, Rekha Sharma, RPF Sub-Inspector stated, ''I felt extremely glad that all the things we do for safety of women & children on a daily basis are being recognised. Children will also get more aware about what they should & shouldn't do from this lesson. I've helped 953 children till now.''
Rekha became part of the RPF in the year 2014. She was also honoured at a special function that was arranged by Central Railway General Manager D.K. Sharma on Monday for her special accomplishments.
“She is doing an excellent job and simultaneously serving a noble social cause too. Her being part of the chapter in the textbook will definitely inspire the new generations,” Sharma added. In order to respect her dedication, Inspector Rekha Mishra has also been named to get the 'Nari Shakti Puraskar' with 100 such unique female personalities.
Mishra said: “It’s a moment of great pride for me… Most children run away from homes after fights with their parents or siblings… Some do it to meet their Facebook friends or even to meet their favourite films stars, and others are lured by the glamour of Mumbai. A few unfortunate ones have also been kidnapped.”
