When a 10-year-old boy decided to step forward for a cycling trip of 2500 km, he has become a representational model for every person to commence daring moves. The 10-year-old Arav Bharadwaj of Delhi took the decision to embark on a cycling trip of 2,500 kilometers to spread the message of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
The boy started his journey from the region of Manipur, Moirang. The region is an area where Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army (INA) raised the national flag of India on April 14, 1944.
The class 6 student Arav Bharadwaj was accompanied by his father who is a doctor when Arab decided to start the cycle trip. Father Atul M Bharadwaj reached Alipurduar in West Bengal on his bicycle on April 26.
The boy said, he took the decision of 2500 km cycling taking inspiration from Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. It was his wish to do something great prior to the 125th birth anniversary of Bose. “When I was in second grade, my grandfather started telling me the stories of our freedom fighters. He gave me many books on the freedom struggle of the country.” Arav said.
“It was at that time that I was inspired by Netaji and his struggle for the country. The cycling expedition, which will come to end at the National War Memorial in New Delhi, aims to spread the message of national unity, “he added.
