Mamta Rawat – The Woman Who Saved Thousands of Lives

In our Nationalism – series of articles – we bring forth unsung heroes of India who have made our nation proud without any hype or selfish intent.

One such brave soul who has not only made our nation proud, but also saved thousands is, Mamta Rawat.

Mamta Rawat falls perfectly in the bracket of ‘Not All Heroes Wear Capes,’ which denotes Men and Woman from all walks of life, who are superheroes, in their own right!

We all have read about the disastrous floods which took place in 2013, in Uttarakhand. Thousands lost their lives that year to the floods and subsequent landslides.

Mamta Rawat, a mountaineer by profession, is one of the many thousands who lost her home in the floods of 2013. Her house nestled in the hills of Uttarakhand washed away in no time in the ferocious floods. However, undeterred, Mamta Rawat climbed extremely dangerous terrains, risking her own precious life, to save over a thousand pilgrims stranded in the floods.

She also used her mountaineering skills to lead over 25 students to safety while carrying senior citizens on her back. She was just 24 years old at that time and undertook all the rescue efforts without Government aid.

Heroes such as Mamta indeed are an inspiration to everyone. Let’s make her famous. Spread the word!
