When Ajeet was 17 years old and still in college, he was attending a cousin’s party that had a dancer, a “nautch girl”, performing for the guests. Historically, nautch was a popular court dance performed by girls in India that symbolized grace and elegance. Before that, it was a devotional dance performed in temples for spiritual reasons only.

“I felt really bad about the way people were behaving towards her,” Ajeet said at the Thomson Reuters Foundation Trust Conference on modern slavery. “I waited for the whole night until I could talk to her.”

However, nautch girls nowadays are shunned as prostitutes. And guests were treating this dancer as one. Ajeet felt bad about the way they were behaving towards her, so he waited the entire night to talk to her in hopes of helping her get out of such a life. He eventually found out that she was a mother of three, making Ajeet want to help them even more.

He also learned that she had 3 kids and wanting to help, he decided to adopt and raise them

When I read Bored Panda, I think “funny stuff”.  Here a human interest story as a change of pace.

Like the stories about those who risked their lives to save Jews from Hitler, I have a pretty strict definition of “hero”.

This fellow fits in.

(I have to believe that the sex traffickers were too happy with him messing up the “business model” and they may have taken action to stop him from his activities and exposing their actions to some “sunshine”!)

I’m not sure I could even be such a hero, but I can recognize what he’s done.

Marcel Marceau, left, personally smuggled at least 70 youngsters out of France and across the Alps to Switzerland, rescuing them from almost certain slaughter in the concentration camps. After the war, he rarely discussed his role in the Resistance, top right. Now, 13 years after the actor’s death, the extraordinary untold story of how he used mime to defy Hitler’s stormtroopers has been turned into a Hollywood film, starring Jesse Eisenberg as Marceau, bottom right. He was born in 1923, the son of a kosher butcher from Poland and his Ukrainian wife Anne, who fled West to escape anti-Semitism before World War I and settled in Strasbourg, on the French-German border. In May 1940, as the Germans rushed West to occupy the Netherlands and Belgium in a matter of days, the family fled to Limoges in central France, hoping Hitler’s forces would not reach them. They had just two hours to pack their bags

I didn’t know that.

Takes a lot of chutzpah to take that risk!

How One Las Vegas ED Saved Hundreds of Lives After the Worst Mass Shooting in U.S. History
By KEVIN MENES, MD, JUDITH TINTINALLI, MD, MS and LOGAN PLASTER ON NOVEMBER 3, 2017

*** begin quote ***

The night that Stephen Paddock opened fire on thousands of people at a Las Vegas country music concert, nearby Sunrise Hospital received more than 200 penetrating gunshot wound victims. Dr. Kevin Menes was the attending in charge of the ED that night, and thanks to his experience supporting a local SWAT team, he’d thought ahead about how he might mobilize his department in the event of a mass casualty incident.

This is his story, as told to Judith Tintinalli, MD, MS
Edited by Logan Plaster

I’m a night shift doc. My work week is Friday to Monday, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Most people don’t want to work those shifts. But that’s when most of the action comes in, so that’s when I work. It was a Sunday night when the EMS telemetry call came in to alert Sunrise Hospital of a mass casualty incident. All hospitals in Las Vegas are notified in a MCI to prepare for incoming patients.

Here’s something to read and put you in awe of an American Hero. 

His preparatory thinking saved a lot of lives.

I hope all the “health industry” politicians and bureaucrats take note of his “lessons learned”.

Makes me wish I’d have become a doc.

HISTORY’S HEROES | THE AMAZING AND TRAGIC STORY OF AUGUST LANDMESSER

Landmesser liberty maniacs print large

*** begin quote ***

On June 13th, 1936, this hero named August Landmesser was working at the Blohm + Voss shipyard in in Hamburg, Germany. When you read his story, you’ll never forget him.

In the 1930s, the fascist mania for Hitler’s regime instituted a law making the infamous “sieg heil” hail victory salute mandatory for Germans.
One German named August Landmesser, seen here in this powerful photo, refused to obey. His incredible story is one of great courage, sacrifice, and horrific loss in the name of love.

When you stand against the Gooferment, it will crush you.

I hope I have his courage. Do you?
