With the belief in their philosophy of ‘Cherishing what you have’, Life OK will telecast a story based on the incident that has marked and changed the life of many a Mumbaikar. The show will portray ordinary people entrapped in a terror situation through its new show ‘2612’ which will premiere today, November 26 at 9 PM. The show will be telecast Monday to Friday.

To take the message of the show to the larger society, Ajit Thakur, General Manager, Life OK, organised a small felicitation event to pay homage to the unsung heroes of Mumbai on Wednesday, November 21, 2012. Held in Café Leopold, Life OK began the day by talking about the current scenario and how it is important for a nation to stand together to face outside evil. Present were Dr PS Pasricha, former DGP of Maharashtra Police; Sebastien D’Souza, a photojournalist, who was the one first to capture Kasab’s image; VD Zende, the announcer at CST who alerted the general public about the 26/11 firing; and Devika Rotawan, witness to Kasab’s firing and one of the few who testified in court.

Dr Pasricha, who was the Chief Guest, shared some valuable insights about the current scenario in Mumbai. After that the abovementioned invitees shared their stories of the 2008 attack. The event culminated with Ajit Thakur, along with Dr Pasricha, commemorating those who did their bit for society. Candles were lit and a two-minute silence followed in remembrance of the warriors who gave their life for the nation.

Thakur of Life OK said, “Any kind of terror attack leaves behind an imprint on the minds of countless people. Life OK today salutes those who faced terror with courage and saved millions of lives in Mumbai. Their acts of bravery and courage will be remembered forever. Through our new show, ‘2612’, we are trying to bring people closer together as one nation to fight the bigger evil. We want people to be more aware, more vigilant and, most importantly, more united.”

Dr Pasricha added, “I feel humbled that Life OK has taken this stand and done something for the people who have contributed to the society. It is often in times of adversity that a nation sticks together. My plea to people is to stay united so that we can combat any hardship that comes our way.”

Commenting on the launch of the show, Saurabh Shukla, author of 2612, said, “2612 brings forth new meaning to life, by enacting the tale of ordinary people stuck in extraordinary circumstances. I sincerely hope people across the country appreciate the story we are trying to tell, and take a stand to be more attentive.”
