But what really won hearts was the tribute paid to the front line workers that saved thousands of lives during this harsh lock-down. While some warriors lost lives fighting, some continue to do the good deed. First he spoke to the wife of Mr. Balamurali who was the Inspector stationed at the West Mambalam Police Station. The brave Police officer lost his life during the intense lockdown to COVID. He breathed his lat breath creating a void in his family.
The next was a doctor, a frontline worker from the Rajiv Gandhi Government Hospital who talked about meeting different personalities in the form of COVID patients and all the battles she fought throughout and still continues to fight.
The final one was an equally heartwarming story of Khalid Ahmed, a volunteer who helped the public to cremate coronavirus infected patients. They also arranged ambulances to transport bodies of Covid-19 patients to their native places free of cost. Kamal Haasan praised them for their tireless efforts and said how they play an important role in these times of despair.
