Most Indians have expressed their joy and admiration at the Indian Army’s successful surgical strikes at terror camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir on the intervening night of September 28 and 29. The Army’s operation came 11 days after the Uri terror attack that claimed the lives of 19 soldiers – something that has been condemned in equal measure by most in the country.

 
From Virender Sehwag to Virat Kohli, several Indian cricketers took to Twitter to condemn the terror attack in Uri.
 
However, most of this admiration has been limited to words and hasn’t really translated into a change of heart for many of us. For instance, how many of us travelling in a Metro or a city bus would get up to offer our seat to someone who is in need. How many of us avoid rushing to a seat reserved for senior citizens, ladies and the physically challenged and feeling a sense of joy at having accomplished it?
 
The response can be mixed but a tweet by cricketer Mohammad Kaif has a lesson for all of us who think and act the way we shouldn’t.
 

Mohammad Kaif, former Indian batsmen recently took to Twitter to share a message for Indians that not only displays his thoughts for the nation but also shows a way to extend support for the armed forces.
 
 

Kaif requested people to help the Indian soldiers by offering them seats while travelling.
 
“Leaves of all Jawans have been cancelled. If in train or bus, you see a Jawan without a seat, do offer them a seat,” he tweeted.
 


 
Kaif did not attempt to preach, but only sent out a request that appears so easy to be followed. He does not exude the hyped feelings of nationalism, but does touch upon a raw nerve when it comes to making small sacrifices to help those in greater need.
 
Soldiers who guard our borders have pledged to readily make the ultimate sacrifice if need be. Time is that we reciprocate in small ways that we can.
 
When on field, former Indian batsmen was one of the  defensive and aggressive players against Pakistan.
