A couple from Jharkhand who drove 1,200 km on a scooter with their pregnant wife, who was on a pillion passenger, to take an exam for prospective teachers, received airline tickets for their return trip.
The couple Dhananjay and his wife Soni rode a two-wheeler from their village in the Godda district in Jharkhand to Gwalior, a center for the D.Ed (Diploma in Education) examination planned for September 11th.
After the couple’s story emerged, a corporate giant offered them plane tickets for their return trip to get to their home in Jharkhand.
“Dhananjay and Soni’s marathon journey was a journey of survival, resilience and great optimism. We are humble to arrange their comfortable return trip to Godda and grateful to the local media for bringing this inspiring story to light, ”said Priti Adani, chairman of the Adani Foundation, in a tweet.
Speaking to ANI, Dhananjay said: “We have never got on a plane in our lives. We thank the Adani Foundation for the support. I would also like to thank the media for reporting my story and helping me with this act. “
“I want to become a teacher and am aiming for an educational diploma. My husband and family have given me a lot of support. After we sold our gold ornament, we arranged some money, but the money wasn’t enough to take the bus, and decided to take the two-wheeler, ”Soni told ANI.
“We suffered a lot when we traveled to Gwalior because of the rain, but I’m glad we’ll be flying by plane,” added Soni.
