An 8-year-old girl of Puttur municipality in Chittoor district on Saturday performed an impressive feat of skating from the Nangili check-post on the Chittoor- Bengaluru NH in Karnataka to the residence of Nagari MLA R.K. Roja, covering a distance of about 250 kilometers.
The girl, Vensika Siri, studying at a private school at Puttur, had shown keen interest in skating early on following which her parents sent her for training. With the respite in CO-VID infections, Siri wanted to perform a marathon skating, receiving all encouragement from parents. She began from Nangili at 6 a.m. on Saturday and reached Nagari late at night. A heartening scene was witnessed at the residence of Ms. Roja, who was waiting for the girl to skate her way safely. Hugging the child, she said: "Siri has made all of us (Nagari denizens) proud."
"My mission is to spread the importance of nutrition and education among girls and the need for supporting their dreams and objectives," Siri said, thanking her parents and coach for encouraging her to pursue her dreams. Ms. Roja said that Siri was a perfect example to prove the mettle of girls. "Parents should not miss the opportunity to give good education to their daughters," she said.
