Neither the bomb nor the evil intentions of anti-national elements could destroy the unbreakable bond between Shaheed Bharat Rajak, Maha Dalit from Supaul in Bihar and a pigeon he had kept as a pet. Bharat Rajak lost his life to cowardly anti-national elements that are enemies of peace but he still lives on in the heart of a pigeon he nurtured and considered a part of his own family.

When Narendra Modi was speaking to Bharat Rajak’s son Shankar, this unique tale of care, devotion and loyalty was told to him by the people of his village.

Bharat Rajak kept a pigeon as a pet. Such was the relation between Bharat Rajak and the pigeon that the pigeon would even stay next to his bed. His morning would not begin without feeding grain to the pigeon.

When Bharat Rajak bid goodbye to his pigeon before going to attend the Hunkar Rally, little did they know that this would be their final meeting. The person who left home was Bharat Rajak in flesh and blood but what returned home was a dead body, a life cut short but the brutality of elements seeking sadistic pleasure by destroying the atmosphere of peace and harmony.

The pigeon was overcome by a deep sense of gloom and it refused to leave the dead body of Shaheed Bharat Rajak, standing like a rock behind him even in times such as this. The pigeon travelled with the body till the funeral. Even now, the pigeon stays around Bharat Rajak’s room. 

This pigeon may not speak like us humans but his emotions run deep. This bird of peace has rejected the dastardly actions of these mischievous elements. There are many peace lovers like this, who are losing their loved ones to dastardly acts of a select few. It is time to join hands and rise against these forces of violence that threaten the unity of our Motherland.

This story left Narendra Modi touched and even shared it on Twitter.
