It's been more than two weeks since the terror attacks in Mumbai, and tributes are still pouring in for those brave officers who gave up their life to save others. They are stories of courage and valour to inspire others. One of such martyrs of 26/11 was Tukaram Umbale.
Tukaram Umbale's family is in mourning, but they are also proud. Umbale took five bullets, but held on to Qasab's (the lone terrorist captured after the Mumbai attacks) weapon, enabling his colleagues to capture him alive.
"What he did should at least have been spoken about," said Pavithra, Tukaram's daughter.
Tukaram has four daughters, and was the only earning member of the family. The Maharashtra government has announced Rs 5 lakhs compensation for the policeman. But more than that, it is the response of complete strangers that has overwhelmed the family.
"Complete strangers come to meet us. They say your brother died for us, they sit and cry with us. Some give money, it makes us feel proud," said Eknath Umbale, Tukaram's brother.
Outside the police flat, Tukaram's neighbours have put up his photograph. It's their own way of saluting a brave man.
