Teaching Desperate Indian girl bikes 745 miles home with disabled dad

Desperate Indian girl bikes 745 miles home with disabled dad

Biking 740 miles is an impressive feat. Doing it with a disabled man holding on to the back of the bicycle is even more impressive. Now, consider that the person who biked that long way is not an athlete or an experienced biker. Her name is Jyoti Kumari and she's fifteen years old. The disabled man on the bicycle is not a stranger, but her father. Now, that's beyond impressive. That's astonishing.
