Jalandhar, August 8
A year ago, Kusum, Jalandhar’s braveheart girl, showed exemplary courage when she fought bike borne snatchers, defending her mobile phone that her labourer father gave her for online studies. She successfully caught hold of one of the snatchers, but got injured in the scuffle and was admitted to a hospital.

How the incident got everyone’s attention

The story inspired and moved many. The report published in The Tribune was widely circulated on the social media and shared on Twitter by celebrities such as Varun Grover and Richa Chadha, and cartoonist Satish among others, and that is how everyone got to know about the actual reason why Kusum couldn’t let the snatchers take away her phone.
A year later, she has a laptop and a new mobile phone and studies without any problem. “Life has completely changed for me. People were so generous to contribute and I received immense support from everyone,” said Kusum, who studies in Class IX.
She said her unit tests will start from August 10 and she has been studying on her laptop.
“I have become famous and people call me brave girl,” the 15 year old shared. She also said that her friends also get motivated from her. “Recently, a friend of mine came to meet me. She had a smart phone in her hand. Her mother asked her to be brave like Kusum and not let go of it and become sad if any untoward incident happens,” Kusum shared a story.
Kusum said that she felt so proud that because of her, girls get courage to fight for themselves.
