15-year-old Jyoti Kumari who cycled from Haryana to Bihar for 1200 kms with her father amidst lockdown remained in the headline for her patience and hardship. Jyoti was applauded for her courage and undying spirit which got her national and global recognition. Jyoti had to cycle through States as no trains or busses we're available thanks to the lockdown. Not just every Indian but also US President Donald Trump's daughter and senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump applauded her for her courage. After she reached home, well-known journalist Barkha Dutt got in touch with her and asked her about her journey.

Jyoti revealed in her interview she and her father stayed at petrol pump during the night and eat food provided by volunteers helping migrants stationed at specific intervals.

When asked wasn’t she upset and angry for not receiving help, Jyoti replied though she was, there was no other option to relay on. Also when asked what would she do now, she expressed her desire to study and mostly not return.
