Umesh Gopinath Jadhav from Maharashtra, travelled 61,000 Km across India to collect the soil from Pulwama attack martyrs’ home. He spent his last year in travelling to the houses of each of the 40 CRPF personnel, who made supreme sacrifice on 14 Feb, 2019 in a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama. 

During his journey, Umesh Gopinath met the families of the 40 CRPF Martyrs & collected the soil from the Home of each Martyr in an Urn. He presented the Urn to CRPF, which was then placed at the Martyrs Column during the wreath laying ceremony.

Umesh Gopinath Jadhav is a pharmacologist and musician. He was returning to his home in Bengaluru on 14 February last year after a music concert in Ajmer. He was still in Jaipur airport when news of the CRPF attack started appearing on the TV screen there. Seeing the frightening picture of the scene, he decided to do something for the family of the bravehearts.

Umesh travelled 61,000 km across India to meet the families of the martyrs. His journey ended last week, which he considers a ‘pilgrimage’. Jadhav shows astikalash and said, “I collected mud from outside each jawan’s house for the whole year. Everything is here in this urn.

Umesh Gopinath Jadhav said, “I am proud that I met all the families of Pulwama martyrs, and sought their blessings. Parents lost their son, wives lost their husbands, children lost their fathers, friends lost their friends. I collected soil from their houses & their cremation grounds.
