Mr Ravinder Lather is the owner of a restaurant in Haryana marred by violence due to the reservation demand by the Jat community. But that’s not what makes him special. Violence in Haryana has thrown many people’s lives out of gear besides blocking many of the arterial roads and highways. The blocking of roads has caused doubts and fear among many commuters who have been trying to return to their homes in Haryana and other travellers. He has sheltered all of them in his hotel at free of cost with delicious food being served. In this situation of uncertainty one man has taken the onus to provide safety, food and shelter to all who are seeking it. Mr Ravinder is housing all the people there until the situation is safe outside. The people who are staying there are not only being served the best food free of cost. All the people who are staying there along with Mr Ravinder are not only having a fun time together, they have unanimously stressed the need for “humanism” and “unity”. The Logical Indian spoke to Mr Ravinder and the other people who are staying and they had all the wonderful things to say about humanism, the importance to spread positivity and the importance of looking ourselves as Indian first.
Mr Ravinder welcomed all the people who got stranded along the highways due to the ongoing protests on Jat reservation which had brought life to a standstill at many places. Mr Ravinder has provided all of them who had been stranded with a safe place to stay until the situation returns to normalcy with quality and delicious food being served during their entire stay. The people who are being sheltered there have since then have developed a great sense of camaraderie with each other and with Mr Ravinder. “We are all Indians first,” Says Mr Ravinder with a sense of pride and spoke intensively on the need to help each other and spread positivity among our country for a better future. He has blamed the media for spreading so much negativity among the common citizens and feels this could be detrimental to the country as a whole. Mr Siddarth is one of the people staying there had wonderful things to say about the owner Mr Ravinder. “He is a shining example of humanism,” says Siddarth who also went on to convey his gratefulness and the need to emulate the brand of humanism which Mr Ravinder has displayed by benevolently sheltering many people in his hotel.
