Air India Pilot Quarantined, Colony Residents Call Him a Hero

The residents of a gated community in Chennai pasted a 'Thank You' note right below the quarantine sticker pasted by the GCC (Greater Chennai Corporation), outside the home of an Air India Pilot, Captain Manish Sharma.
This feel-good gesture by the members of the community has given Twitterati the warm fuzzies, and for good reason. Typically, in a number of cases, people who have had quarantine stickers stuck outside their homes are being met with unnecessary fear, discrimination, and are being unduly ostracised.
Incidentally, Captain Manish had operated an international evacuation flight. It was owing to this that the GCC placed his home under isolation.

The handwritten note was pasted right under the GCC quarantine sticker. While Twitter users appreciated the gesture, and 'Bitanko Biswas', for sharing the photograph, some were apprehensive of the backlash that would result in revealing the address of the Air India pilot.
