Rachakonda Police commissioner Mahesh M. Bhagwat who is a man of generosity, allowed a seven-year-old D. Ishan to take charge as the commissioner for a day, an intense desire that the ambitious kid dreamt of. Ishan was suffering from a life-threatening ailment and ‘Make a Wish Foundation approached Mahesh M, Bhagwat with the kind request to make the child commissioner for a day. In what was a great gesture, Mahesh M. Bhagwat agreed to the terms.
‘Make a Wish Foundation’, a non-profit organization has been doing quite a sensational job so far granting over 3,34,000 wishes worldwide to the children with life-threatening medical conditions. Instead of going into a shell and cursing their fate, children have rejuvenated their lost confidence, hope, strength and joy because of this foundation.
“Make a Wish Foundation approached me last week, with the request to make the child commissioner for a day. On Wednesday finally, we got to make this happen,” said the Commissioner as reported by Deccan Chronicle.
The commissioner also went on to add saying that earlier parents used to scare the hell out of children about ‘police’. But seeing the bright young prospects setting goals to take this profession is a pleasant feeling according to Mahesh. “Earlier parents used to scare children using the term police. But I am happy that the younger generation is aspiring to take to this profession,” he added.
Ishan was given a police uniform with his name badge. Mr Bhagwat did the proceedings and made the child sit on his chair and felicitated him. Ishan was all smiles after wearing the uniform. He must have gained his lost confidence back. Mr Bhagwat later took Ishan around to meet the media.
Hailing from Medak district in Telangana, Ishan who is a Class II student was blissfully pleased as punch to have donned the Police uniform. He came to the Commissioner’s office with his father Chand Pasha who is a painter, and his mother Hasina, homemaker.
Dr, APJ Abdul Kalam once said that ‘Dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that doesn’t let you sleep’. Students those who have understood this have always come up with flying colours. The aspiring minds with ambitious mindset also went on to unlock great achievements in life.
We all live under the same sky, but we don’t all have the same path. The future is not in the hands of fate but is ours. To become successful in life, it is important to identify own talents and abilities right from the young age.
