As we mark the first birthday of the countrywide lockdown because of the pandemic today, over the past year, we’ve witnessed a number of tales from diverse portions of the nation, from overcoming troubles to offering support to losing lives in the fight.
While diverse organizations are honoring the champions who defied the pandemic dares, a man from Mysuru made his mind to walk from South India to North India.
This 33-year-old started the trip of ‘Walk for Humanity’ to honor the pandemic combatants and their noble service by covering up a distance of 4,000 kilometres.
Beginning his trip on December 11, 2020, from Kanyakumari, Bharath PN got to his last stop in Kashmir, covering a distance of around 45-50 kilometres on a daily basis. In this 99-day trip, he covered a distance of more than 4000 kilometres, by way of 11 states.
Bharath told media people, “During this time, I realised how many frontline workers are rendering selfless service in the battle against the pandemic. I realised the importance of giving back to society and took on this mission in honour of all the pandemic warriors, not just the frontline workers, but everyone who did their best to help those in distress. Thus, I called it a Walk for Humanity.”
He spent his nights outside petrol pumps towers and eateries and sometimes kind people offered him a place for the night.
“Wherever I stayed, I would ask the concerned person if she/he has any contact for the next 50 km, and then repeat the same. This helped me a lot, and I got to meet many people,” he told media.
