If you are looking for a person at Agra, city with which most of us are connected, a person who is most dependable and ever ready to accept responsibilities for social causes, it is ‘soldier’ whose real name is as above which very few people know. His parents Shri Bankey Lal who was in police and Shrimati Sri Devi would have recognized the traits in the toddler  and appropriately started calling him ‘soldier’. They may not have imagined that this name would become so well known and famous in the community and beyond. This young man of 75 years with broad shoulders and untiring zeal does not know the word ‘NO’. He is omnipresent in community gatherings whether of  grief or joy and is on his own happy to accept any responsibility with smile on his face.
