As a radio presenter hosting a talk show called Jai Hind dedicated to Armed Forces on Tori radio , Mrs. Jaya had shared her experiences of talking to brave officers  like  Major D P Singh , Captain Naveen Nagappa  . Sikh temple president, secretary and other members had shared their views about our brave soldiers and victory . There was a common viewpoint expressed by all the speakers that our soldiers should be given high regard and respect as in the western countries hence more awareness programmes need to be taken up . All the attendees then paid their tributes to the brave soldiers by lighting a candle and everybody dispersed with a promising note of taking this initiative further in Hong Kong .
