Dear Readers of Dwarka Parichay,
Some of you, might have noticed an `announcement` about sending nominations of risk-takers to `Giraffe Heroes India`, being carried every-day, by Dwarka Parichay in the left column of its portal . Well, if the website www.giraffe.org as mentioned in the column-clip ,has been visited by some,, then details about who is a `Giraffe-Hero`, what is` Giraffe Heroes India` & the other related information about it might have been ascertained by them, but for all those who are not aware of it, it is to inform that-
`Giraffe Hero is a person who sticks his/her neck out for common good at huge personal risk, on not one-time bravery basis but on a sustainable way. That means, it is in his/her DNA to do public[ in any human endeavour] good despite all odds/risks/dangers in doing that!
Giraffe Heroes India is the affiliate of Giraffe Heroes Project of USA which came into being in 2012.India is the sixth country in the world where this Programme has been started.
Giraffe Heroes Project started in USA in 1984, to tell the stories of brave persons of US in particular & also about brave persons from other countries of the World. So far ,till 2013,about over a thousand persons have been commended by Giraffe Heroes Project –US. Two of them have also been conferred NOBEL PRIZE,too! About 12 Indians have been commended so far as Giraffe Heroes by the parent[ US ]organization.
From 2013,onwards, Giraffe Heroes are to be chosen by Giraffe Heroes India[GHI] .In January 2015,two were commended by GHI.
