Many of us dream of becoming police officers when we are just toddlers. Thanks to the countless commercial flicks we grow up with.

The Event

The sight of a bulky Salman Khan or Ajay Devgn in tight-fitting khaki clothes can be really attractive for young eyes; they are reel heroes after all. But the Police Commissioner of Bengaluru, along with his officials, turned out to be the real hero when he permitted five terminally ill children to take the reins of the city for one day.

Make A Wish foundation had approached Commissioner Bhaskar Rao with the idea and he had readily agreed. The children were in for a grand surprise on Monday!

A Busy Day!

They were given police uniforms to dress in and were welcomed with a guard of honor, were given handcuffs and weapons to play with, and also had to do paperwork by signing on mock documents! The Bengaluru City Police also let them have plenty of fun with the K9 squad. A sumptuous meal had been arranged for them as well. In short, they spent their day almost like any real cop would.

Keep Hopes Alive

Bengaluru City Police even tweeted the images on their official handle. It goes without saying that they really took a big step when it came to helping the five children realize their childhood dreams. The best part is that the children left with the dreams of becoming policemen firmly etched in their minds. A bright hope for the future is what all of us live on!
