We all have superheroes inside us – irrespective of our age or gender or life circumstances, we just need the courage to put on the cape. And, the magic happens.
But sadly, most of us are never able to gather that courage in our lifetime. We are too either too scared of failure or being judged.
But Jhanvi Behal is definitely one of those who is not scared of putting on her superhero cape.
In the times when we are divided more than ever – along the lines of caste, religion, and ideology; heroes like Jhanvi are sharing invaluable lessons about love for the country and Indian forces.
A Lucknow girl, Jhanvi, is traveling on “Tiranga Yatra” from Mumbai to Kargil.
Jhanvi represents the girls of the 21st century, who are not scared of anything. Neither the increasing crimes against women i.e. rape or assault could stop them nor the ‘log kya kahengey’ remarks could shatter their courage.
Their courage shows how society might have failed Indian women but still, they are taking bold steps in the right direction to change the state of women in India.
They just know one thing – how to be a hero even in adverse situations.
What’s even more heartening, this will be her second Tiranga Yatra, the earlier one being from Kanyakumari to Kashmir.
While sharing the heart-touching reason behind her Tiranga Yatra, Jhanvi shared with Tribune:
“My Tiranga Yatra is all about patriotism, love for the country and all that Indian forces are doing for the countrymen which can never be repaid.
This is my small gesture to show my love for my county, and respect for the Indian forces who guard the country 24×7,”
Jhanvi, who will be starting her journey next month, recently met DGP Dinkar Gupta. He presented her with a huge national flag which she will unfurl at Gateway of India and then at Kargil.
She shared with Tribune that she will start her yatra in May after the elections and it will be by road. She further added that the detailed plan of her expedition yet to be chalked out and hence it would be too early to talk about the duration.
While remembering her earlier Tiranga Yatra, she shared
“Last time when I went on Tiranga Yatra, I collected sand from all places wherever I went.
After coming back home, I planted a rose sapling in the mixed sand.
If flowers can bloom in the sand collected from different places, then why can’t humans live together.
I am excited and looking forward to some new experiences and meeting new people of our land”
At this juncture where our younger generation is struggling with multiple challenges like depression, substance abuse, video game addictions and much more; we believe the stories of courageous girls like Jhanvi are the must sort of inspiration!
