Prads Da from Nehru, IIT Kharagpur needs your help

Pradeep Kumar Gupta or Prads or Prads Da is how he is known to me and to thousands of other Nehruites who have literally eaten his “namak” over the last 20 (may be 30 years). He wasn’t just a random shopkeeper but someone who cared and was always in jovial mode. But today – he is in trouble. He is struggling to pay hospital bills for his mother and it will not be wrong to say that he is depressed because of the same. A few posts on a facebook group prompted us to set up a fund collection / crowd funding drive to help him out. Most of the Nehruites (and I presume only those will be landing on this page) would remember him fondly as a friend. Well guess what – you can be his friend in need today.

Update 6th Sep – 4:45 PM – Required amount of money has been collected. Thanks a lot for supporting this campaign. However, please leave your contact details and the amount of money you wish to donate on the link below. We will get in touch with you if further need arises.
