We are the Champions is a collection of 15 brave hearts who displayed their strength as they challenge the conventions of the society. This book is the testimony to their sheer grit and courage as they rise above themselves to bring a significant change around them. Be it child marriage, trafficking, dowry, etc, these young children have overpowered there adverse circumstances and took the oath of helping others. The roadblocks didn’t deter them, they didn’t stop them, and thus, they became invincible who are now recognized for their valuable work.
Authors Devendra Tak and Rashmi Bansal took the responsibility of recognizing these unsung heroes and bringing their stories of valor to the fore. We’ve seen a lot of people working for a noble cause – celebrities, philanthropists, etc – who enjoy the limelight. But what about those who stay remotely, cohabitating with their share of problems, and still making an attempt to help themselves and others. This is the first time I came across a book that brings to light the efforts of those who work hard for themselves and harder for others.
The book celebrates the guts of the young elevating minds who dared to question age-old practices thereby bringing a lasting impact in their society. Divided into three sections – Ladenge, Padhenge, and Badhenge – the book showcases the incredibility of the children who refused to live with their destiny. At the end of each chapter, you’d find quotes that are full of power and vigor.
It is a book for every age group. It would inspire the young and delight the adults. As you go through the fifteen stories, you’d realize what is the ground reality of the country despite us living in the 21st century. It is a book filled with passion, determination, and unrelenting desire to stand by one’s heart. It is a book that pulls you out of your slumber and shows you that what great things are happening out there.
