Mysore Man Who Is Taking Mother To A Pilgrimage On Scooter Gets A SUV From Anand Mahindra
Most of you would agree when I say that our parents didn’t have the kind of travel opportunities we have. But they certainly deserve it. Today, we bring you the story of a man who crossed all the limits (in his way indeed) to make her mother visit the pilgrimages. Dakshina Murthy Krishna Kumar, a man from Mysuru pledged to visit almost all the temples in India with his mother. He also quit his job so that he can fulfill his mother’s dreams.
He also quit his job so that he can fulfill his mother’s dreams. As per the reports of TOI, Kumar and his mother are undertaking this journey on his father’s 19-year-old Bajaj Chetak scooter. Kumar started his journey, along with his 71-year-old mother in January 2018 and since then they visited most of the temples across Karnataka, as well as in Nepal and Bhutan.
The CEO of Mahindra Group Mr. Anand Mahindra ,was so much touched by the gesture of Kumar for his loving mother that he asserted to gift him a SUV .Let’s watch the tweet ,Mr. Mahindra posted on his twitter handle:
In the conversation with TOI , he reveals that
“My mother had been stuck in the kitchen for the best part of her life. She had never visited any places outside Mysuru. So, I decided to take her on this pilgrimage. ” The pattern takes on like this : in the mornings and evenings , they travel and stay in dharamshalas and temples.
The distance of 48,000 km of the journey which is a great one for any scooter but their scooter break down post that. T he idea of traveling in this unique manner came to his mind ,when Kumar saw the loneliness of his mother post his father’s demise.
