The Channel was showing his mobile number. I'll try and get it. All the poor guy was asking was his pension and a job for himself or his wife.

Amazing in strat forum every body claims to be a nationalist and contribute pages if not reams of brilliant analysis, but not even one nationalist comes forward to pledge.
Ha all garam hawa talking about MG SVP etc :rotfl:.

Ok for every dollar ramana garu donates i will match 50 cents! For every dollar Acharya ji donates I will match 25 cents how about that for starters. Like the way NPR does.

There are real time big nationalists in Strat forum.... one mighty opportunity to show some nationalism and real action no hawa... :mrgreen:

Figure out some way of donating yet? Many of us have PayPal accounts and I believe money from that can be transferred to any Bank account in India right? If we decide to pool money in one PayPal account, that would be great. We could make one BRF account too. I am willing to do it, but would like that gurus/admins to do it so to instill confidence in people.
But if I am allowed to do it, I have both PayPal and SBI internet account (so that I can tranfer to any SBI account instantly). What appraoch can be taken?

I wish some one reports my posting as abusive and ....
then in order ban me they read the thread.

:mrgreen:

Two issues

1) BRF should get credit recognition ( not beacuse name or fame that we when ever we can respond to humanity in the nation)

2) We inculcate giving something back. ( I am neck deep into shankara eye foundation and other charities otherwise I would take a lead.)

3) this is worthy cause. and boost the morale of the jawans and no red tape.

note under 2 I put 3 thats madrassa math

That's a good initiative Kittoo.
I request Rahul/Other Admins to pay attention and suggest a way out. A common BR account would be great but for short notice like this I suggest we go with Kittoo's Paypal acc (and then he would transfer via SBI).
I'm sure if we try calling the number - he would have a SBI/some other Account.

Let there be a locAL BR account in Delhi in which regular donations can be made and hopefully a local Brites there can take responsibility of handling the distribution periodically. Any taker, beside ,overloaded Admins (JS)

folks.

please read the quikclot thread and adopt that as a model for all future worthwhile causes. One among you can take up the mantle (like kobe did in that thread) and start the initiative.

It is nice to call for admin / mod driven initatives but I feel it will be highly inefficient because of all other things being done.

you need someone who is in delhi to get these jobs done. and in this case someone who is in amritsar.

why take dig at other members if they haven seen this thread or forum. You will find many who wont visit strat forum and vice versa.

If this thread is about a worthwhile cause - lets keep it that way, what is the need to get into a sniping match , take jabs at others without any need for it? this thread is about that BSF soldier and not about the people you dont like.

ermm..nothing new to add, except just asking where one can send some money? Creating a BR trust fund/account will be a good idea to raise money for such causes.

I will be frank.

I don't like any funds that are organised.

If someone really wishes to send him money and really cares, you have the tele no. Speak to him and send him your cheque.

That will help.

Thats just duplication of effort for everyone. Plus "send him a cheque" isn't an option for everyone outside India. Its not a matter of your "liking" for a method.

If someone really wishes to send him money and really cares

Well, this denigration doesnt help anyone.

someone in India should volunteer to collect money and than hand deliver to him. A good deed takes some efforts but its worth it.

if someone near amritsar can volunteer that's well and good, if that doesn't happen(say in three more days) those in India can directly call him up and send him money by cheque/MO/DD etc.

those outside, consider asking a friend or relative in India to send money the same way. pay him/her back by regular channels.

I will call him over the weekend and see if it is possible to transfer money to his account using facilites like UAE exchange or Western Union MT
As far as I know, cheques issued through foreign banks can be encashed in India, the only glitch being that it is a bit time consuming.
In the mean time, if anyone of you manage to contact him, please post your experiences here

Guys, Please DO NOT send any funds for this effort to kobe.

And this may sound harsh but don't take it at face value: Get Organized! I just read thru the whole thread and all I see are people asking (as we desis have a habit of doing) "why doesn't somebody do something". Instead if you are really that concerned please ask what you can do.

If you want to collect funds and then send a lumpsum remember the following points (based on the pitfalls we experienced in the QuikClot donation):

1) Collecting money and accounting for it takes time - Individual donations especially in this case where the target is an individual (and not an organization) will be much faster.

2) If you guys decide on collecting money and then sending a lumpsum to the Jawan (only extra positive point here is that B-R gets good publicity) then Get Organized and do it by the book. Create a new account with 2-3 among you guys taking the responsibility of maintaining the account and keeping track of funds. These guys who volunteer have to be totally legitimate - some documented proof of where they work/what they do etc. DO NOT deposit money into One individual's private/business account because that gives him/her the sole control over the entire donation and this can screw up the entire effort without warning!

3) In case you guys want someone to present a check/draft to the Jawan physically, find atleast 2 volunteers in India (one is not good enough, again to keep a check on each other) who can do the donation to the jawan. These guys also have to be totally onboard and local to Punjab/planning to travel there.

4) Remember that if you donate US Dollars and other foreign currency directly to the Jawan you might actually get him in trouble (Remember he is a private citizen NOT a Govt. of India organization). There are Foreign Exchange Regulation laws - do your homework, figure out the logistics of how to go about the money transfer and how to ensure checks and balances so that money doesn't vanish.

Good Luck!
