Explaining his stance, Major Pradeep Arya said, "The second wave of pandemic forced all of us to rethink our existence and support each other. In these unprecedented times, basic healthcare facilities for those affected with coronavirus are the need of the hour. Hence, catering to their needs and providing them with supplies was the most essential step which had to be taken. I would especially like to express my gratitude towards the support groups and local team across the districts for their support throughout the initiative."

In the last year, Major Arya has been actively engaged in different causes to provide support and relief to marginalized and remote communities that have faced music during the pandemic. In the face of deep uncertainty, it is responsible human beings like Major Pradeep Arya, who go out of their way to show us that light at the end of the tunnel and support the government in the fight against this global crisis.
