Gujarat police have praised Varsha for acting with the sole aim of saving the grandmother without selfishness. Varsha said, "When I saw the grandmother, I knew she could not walk. It was impossible to bring vehicles to that part of the desert. My duty as a police officer was to help the community, so I decided to carry her on my shoulders," she said.

A native of Undrana village in Tharad taluka, Varsha is the only earning member of her family of four, including father who is a small-time cattle breeder, mother housewife and a younger brother who is studying.

Varsha is married and her husband works in a private company. An arts graudate, Varsha was selected for Lok Rakshak Dal in 2019 and posted to the Rapar police station in May 2021.

The incident occurred when three elderly women, including the one who fainted had gone to pray at Bhanjda dada temple located atop a small hill around 5 km away in the desert which was near the Ramkatha venue, at around 11 am.

After the darshan, when they were returning from the temple, one of them fainted because of sunstroke. A man who was passing by saw the woman lying in an unconscious state and informed at the Katha venue. Varsha immediately rushed with a water bottle to the woman. Then, Varsha lifted the elderly woman on her shoulders and walked to the venue.
