The event ‘Umeed’ received a positive start as the organizing team of the event got one of its kind opportunity to meet in person and interact with the star batsman of Kings XI Punjab, Manan Vohra on January 7th, 2016 at Innov8 Coworking, Chandigarh.
The meet was an interactive session wherein Manan Vohra infused enthusiasm amongst the team-members of Umeed by telling about his own experiences. It witnessed the Kings XI Punjab batsman strike a chord with everyone instantly due to his humility and genuineness. Everyone revered him when he talked about his unmatched passion and honesty towards his game and training regime while he appreciated the organisation’s indomitable spirit and zeal to serve the society. The strength of words were supported by the fact that Manan Vohra is now also a proud associate member of ‘I Am Still Human’ and thus, a longer and better association together towards service to society is looked forward to.
The event ‘Umeed‘ is meant to be another layer to the motive of ‘Let’s Unite for India’ that the NGO has been working in the direction of. Scheduled for February 25th, it aspires to connect the citizens with the army veterans by way of them addressing a gathering, wherein they would share their operation/war experiences, their journey and life in and out of the army while they bring forward their concern about the present situation.
