This is a story/experience of 14 years old Viraj who was stranded at Shanghai Airport, China. Nobody for guidance, help support. The family at Mumbai was under panic, the child was alone, language barrier, communication problem.
The Shah family at Thane Mumbai was praying God to help their child to get back to Mumbai.
It could be the story, experience for anbody’s child. The Global Airline rules for child travelling domestic or abroad –
“Rules for children travelling alone during Air Travel”
“Story/Experience of Viraj Shah”
On 11th August, 2019 (Sunday) evening at around 5.45 pm my school friend Shri Rajnikant Shah telephoned me. At that time, I was away at Alibag.
When Viraj approached the Air India counter at Shanghai, the local chinese staff (agency staff) at the airport refused to entertain Viraj.
Both the parents were trying to contact the local Air India pepole, friends, relatives to help them. At this time my school friend (from M. M. Pupils Own School, Khar, Mumbai) contacted me for help. I asked him to send the details.
I informed to the Personal Secretary (Mr. Yashpal Diwan) of Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Puri.
I immediately contacted my contacts at Air India and Civil Aviation Ministry. I could able to contact Shri Mukesh Bhatia, Director in Air India and also the staff of Civil Aviation Minister Shri Hardeep Puri.
At 6.19 pm Rajnikant inform me boarding pass issued to Viraj
Messages From Parents
“All ended with happy notes”
Lesson to learn-
If anything goes wrong, instead of getting panic the parents must approach the appropriate authority/person and protect their child.
Master Viraj Shah is a very intelligent boy, in maths examinations getting various scholarships. In September he will be going to USA.
My best wishes to young Indian mathematician Shri Viraj Shah.
