Vikas Jyani from Sarangpur village, Hisar District in Haryana, dreamt of becoming a pilot and has now achieved the dream. People tend to move away from their childhood dreams as they grow, but Vikas differs from those. What could anyone do to share joy and success? Deliver sweet parcels at the doorstep or host a party night with friends and family?
Jyani arranged the travel from New Delhi to Amritsar. The trip extended to Wagah border, Golden Temple and Jallianwala Bagh.
The grandfathers and grandmothers were elated to fly for the first time. Vikas’s father Mahendra Jayani, a senior bank manager proudly said that his son’s gesture is no less than a pilgrimage. Mahendra said, “He fulfilled his dream and that’s the most important thing for me. All youth should follow Vikas’ example and we should all respect our elders”, as reported by Times Of India.
The passengers included 90-year-old Bimla, who said, “Many people make promises to elderly but (he) kept his word.” She was glad to be on her first air travel and said that she never even imagined sitting in a plane.
Two septuagenarians Ramamuti and Kankari Devi stated that it was the best movement of their life. They even thanked their co-passengers for helping whenever the senior citizens needed any kind of assistance.
