Darbhanga: A lion-hearted 15-year-old Bihar girl, Jyoti Kumari cycling almost 1,200 km amid the COVID-19 pandemic, against all odds were no match for her grit. Kumari cycled all the way from Gurugram in Haryana to Bihar’s Darbhanga district with her incapacitated father Mohan Paswan seated on the carrier.
Jyoti said they would cycle for 30-40 km a day and at a few places, truck drivers gave them lifts. “It was unbearably tiring.
“It must have taken eight days and then, here we were! Back home!” said an elated Jyoti.
The father smiled and compared her daughter to the character of Shravan Kumar from the epic Ramayana, She is indeed my Shravan Kumar.
