It’s no longer a news that almost all part of the world is on lockdown due to the covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Due to this lockdown, most workers (except those who provide essential services) are in their homes with their family to avoid the spread of the virus. At a time like this, a 48-year-old Indian mother, drove for three days on her scooter to bring his stranded son back home.
According to Indiatoday, Razia Begum, a school teacher in the small town of Bodhan on the Maharashtra-Telangana border, started her journey on Monday morning. She reached Nellore on the Andhra Pradesh-Tamil Nadu border on her Scooty on Tuesday afternoon. She picked up her 17-year old son Mohammed Nizamuddin, and rode back home on Wednesday evening.
Her son Nizamuddin was preparing for his medical examinations in Hyderabad and had travelled to Nellore to help his friend’s ailing father when the lockdown came into effect.
It’s worthy of mention to state she obtained curfew pass from the local police over there before she embarked on the journey; she wasn’t flouting the lockdown rule.
“I travelled continuously through deserted roads and dusty villages midway. I was not scared at all,” she added that cops stopped her at several checkpoints but they were cooperative. “Even at the inter-state borders, I had no issues, as the police cooperated with me. They advised me to take breaks for every two hours of journey so that I did not get tired,” she said.
This story of mother driving on a scooter for three days to get back his son is one of the many sacrifices mothers make for their children.
