What Harsha Bhogle Has To Say About This American Lady Who Lost Her Family In The Mumbai Attacks
Harsha Bhogle met a courageous American lady Kia Scherr who lost her husband and daughter to the Mumbai attack on 26/11, inspired by the commendable effort by the Mumbai Police, she decided to work with the Mumbai Police. After meeting her Harsha Bhogle wrote this.
“Sometimes cricket brings you into contact with the most remarkable people. This morning I met an American lady who knew very little about cricket. Kia Scherr had lost her husband and daughter to the heinous Mumbai attacks on 26/11. Rather than sit back and bemoan her fate, she decided to return to India and work with the Mumbai police, to help train them and spread cheer and happiness and a smile. She has made a 30 page booklet called “A Pocketbook of Peace” so the policeman can read it one page a day to bring a smile. Her One Life Foundation is seeking to bond more with the Mumbai police and other police forces around India to “restore balance, to deepen commitment to love unconditionally” because, as she says “love was brutally lacking in the terrorist attack”.
Kia and a group of expat cricket lovers mainly from Australia and England played a cricket match against the Mumbai police today which they hope will help bridges with the police and in course of time, use cricket to spread the message of peace.
It is a nice way to use the power of cricket in India and in an atmosphere of negativity and sensationalism, maybe someone will be able to highlight this.
Kia seems like a bundle of positive energy. She could easily have been the opposite.”
