Message from Bikernis
I beg you to not do any rallies or awareness movements and create more hype on the media.
Give the family time to recover and not be hounded by more announcements over media. It's great if you want to do a tribute for her but would request it to be done privately without pushing it out on social media and print and tv media. LETS NOT USE JAGRUTI'S NAME TO START A SOCIAL CAMPAIGN with HASHTAGS INCLUDED. Thank you.
Jagruti won't he coming back by assembling media and riding to an office to protest. Please, she was our dear friend and a wife, a mother and loved by all. Please do not cause us pain. Please DO let anyone who wants to start a petition, raise a rally or awareness campaign at this moment know this. It's been two days let's not traumatize the family further.
Rome wasn't built in a day, please please give the family some space, some privacy and some time to recover.
It's not about using her name or our name, if you have some empathy, please give us some time.
