Indian motorcycle manufacturer Bajaj has launched a brand new platform that ties in with its V15 motorcycle. The platform is known as 'Invincible Indians' and it celebrates the selfless acts of service by everyday Indians.
At the launch of the 'Invincible Indians' platform, Bajaj along with India's first ever individual Olympic Gold Medalist honoured five 'Invincible Indians' and released five videos capturing the inspiring stories of these people.
Speaking at the event, Abhinav Bindra said, "I am extremely glad that Bajaj V has taken this noble step in recognizing these individuals who have dedicated their lives in doing extraordinary social work. Many a time, such heroic acts go untold and these heroes fade away in the pages of history. I am truly proud to be associated with this endeavor and urge every Indian to come forward in supporting it."
The five people honoured by Bajaj are:
