Rajaram Joshi- The real hero who saved many lives at Vashi’s creek

Rajaram Joshi saves those who jump off the Vashi creek bridge. He doesn’t seek money or recognition. Rajaram Joshi clearly remembers the first time he saved a person from drowning -he was 12, and the boy he saved, seven. “My father, who was also a fisherman, taught me how to swim. During a swimming class, he told me that while drowning, a person clutches on to you and transfers his body weight to your shoulder. He also taught me how to handle such a situation without putting my life in danger,“ recalls Joshi.
