The task of bravery of Kalpana and Rekha Sonowal

Rekha and Kalpana were coming back from school along with Rekha's mother Toramai Sonowal and little sister Archana. They had to cross the river Dhansiri everyday. On that rainy afternnoon  luck had something different for these two girls and their families. They boarded a boat on their way back through the Dhansiri river. When they were in mid river the boat capsized and the two girls leaped into the river to save themselves. But when the saw the little Archana drowning in front of their eyes they tried with all their might to save the girl and succeeded. Though their  mother Toramai Sonowal drowned they were not petrified by the accident and saved their sister.

Later the girls were selected for the National Bravery award 2010.
