After receiving his license, a Punjabi pilot named Vikas Jyani, who comes from a small village Sarangpur, in Adampur, decided to fly the elderly residents (aged 70 and above) of his village from Delhi to Amritsar. For most of these people this was their first flight ever.
According to TOI, his father Mahendra said that his son’s gesture is nothing less than a piligrimage. 90-year-old Bimla, who sat in a plane for the first time in her life admitted she had never dreamt of something like this. “Many people make promises to the elderly, but he kept his word,” she said.
78-year-old Ramamuti and 78-year-old Kankari Devi, who were flying for the first time said that this air traveling movement was the best movement of their life.
They were also thankful of their co-passengers who helped them whenever needed. They said Vikas was always confident that he would become a pilot one day.
In total, 22 residents flew to Amritsar to visit the Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh and Wagah Border.
