On 26th Nov 2019 we started from Bengaluru by Walks/Run/Cycle covering 10 Districts, 817kms in 14 Days to reach Bidar on 9th Dec 2019, as against the initial plan of 700kms in 16 Days.
70years ago, on 26th Nov 1949 We the People of India adopted the Constitution, and Yatra For Constitution was taken up to reaffirm our commitment to the Constitution and to create awareness about our Constitution among children from High School and Colleges enroute Bengaluru to Bidar.
From Bengaluru to Bidar we Walked/Ran/Cycled 817kms through Dasanapura, Sri Siddaganga Matt, Sira, Hiriyur, Challakere, Molakalmuru, Ballari, Siruguppa, Manvi, Devadurga, Yadgir, Sedam, Chincholi, Bidar.
We visited over 70+ High Schools & Colleges, interacted with several Organizations and Citizens groups, delivering talk on Constitution of India and the need to stay committed to our Constitution. We also distributed Note Books, Library Books, Books on Constitution of India to the Students in High Schools & Colleges, that was donated by our friends and supporters from Bengaluru.
Yatra For Constitution was not only well received but also very highly appreciated by students, teachers, organizations, citizen groups and everyone who interacted with us enroute.
It was indeed a humbling and life changing experience for us; we are grateful that we could undertake this Yatra to create awareness about our Constitution in our lifetime.
We have officially completed the Yatra For Constitution on 9th Dec 2019 at 6.30pm at Dr B R Ambedkar Circle in Bidar, but our journey to create awareness about our Constitution and to spread the message of Mahatma Gandhi, Dr B R Ambedkar, Pt Nehru, Sardar Patel and Maulana Azad will continue.
We will strive to leave behind a better India, an India that stands by the Constitution that Dr B R Ambedkar gave us when our journey ends.
Yatra For Constitution is a first of its kind initiative in India to create awareness about the Constitution taken up by two Women travelling by Walk/Run/Cycle from Bengaluru to Bidar covering 817kms in 14 Days.
We will soon be doing a Photo exhibition of Yatra For Constitution and share the unique stories of our 14 Days journey by Walk/Run/Cycle from Bengaluru to Bidar.
Looking forward for your support to keep the noble journey Yatra For Constitution going and in ensuring an India that firmly believes in its Constitution.
