Esha Gupta has just penned an open letter to Narendra Modi and it has got nothing to do with Bollywood. Esha has reached out to the PM and Minister Of External Affairs, Sushma Swaraj, requesting help for the Indians stuck in Saint Marteen island in the Caribbean, which has been devastated by Hurricane Irma.
The actress shared the post on her Twitter account today. She tweeted: @SushmaSwaraj @narendramodi.

Dear Prime Minister Narendra Modi,
I am writing to you on behalf of thousands of Indians to request the Indian government and Indian Embassy to urgently intensify efforts to protect the thousands of Indian families who are badly stuck in the life threatening situation and are forced to face the armed rebellion by the locals and give up their lives on the island of Saint Marteen which has been completely devastated by the wrath of Hurricane Irma.
Post the enormous destruction caused by Hurricane Irma, the entire island is being looted by the locals. Adding to the same, the local people have robbed the arms and ammunitions from the customs house and are on the door to door spree to loot the Indian families, rape our Indian women and kill our kids. There is not enough help from the local security to save the lives of many Indians on the island from the ferocity of locals.
We fully recognize that the government has had to cope with multiple, profound crises in a short period of time but as the number of people forced from their homes continues to grow, so also does the urgency of evacuating our Indian families.
We have also learnt that the United states government has already allotted their military planes to evacuate the Americans from the island.Also if we can request United states government to help in the evacuation of our families too.We request you to please look into the matter urgently and please save the lives of our nationals.
Looking for the positive and prompt response.”
Kudos to Esha for speaking up for the people who have lost everything in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma!
