Dhar (MP), August 19
In the absence of public transport, a 38-year-old man travelled on a bicycle for 105 km carrying his son to make sure he doesn’t miss Class 10 board’s supplementary examination right here in Madhya Pradesh.
Though Shobhram, who paddled the cycle, is himself unlettered, he mentioned he understood the significance of schooling and didn’t need his son to waste one 12 months by lacking the supplementary paper.
Therefore, he determined to undertake the arduous journey, together with his son on the cycle’s rear seat, from his village Baydipur in Dhar district’s Manawar tehsil to succeed in the examination centre on time.
No technique of transport, together with buses, had been obtainable because of the prevailing coronavirus scenario. But if I had missed this chance, then my son’s one 12 months would have gone waste. Therefore, I made a decision to take him for the examination on a bicycle, mentioned Shobhram.
Besides, we don’t have cash or perhaps a bike. Nobody helps. But for bettering my son’s life, I introduced him to Dhar for showing within the examination on the bicycle, he mentioned.
We carried meals and different eatables with us for sustaining ourselves in Dhar for two-three days. We began on Monday and after spending a number of hours of the night time at Manawar city, we reached Dhar on Tuesday morning simply earlier than the beginning of the examination, he mentioned.
The boy, Ashish, aged 15, mentioned: “I am studying in Class 10 and I came here on cycle with my father for appearing in the examination.”
Ashish appeared within the examination held on the Government Bhoj Girls School in Dhar beneath the Madhya Pradesh Government’s ‘Ruk Jana Nahin’ scheme, which permits college students to clear these topics which they had been unable to cross within the first try. PTI
