HYDERABAD: Jyoti Kumari, the Bihar girl who hit headlines highlighting the migrants plight in the country, cycling 1,200 km with her injured father from New Delhi to Bihar's Darbhanga, has now found a new offer after been offered to take part in Cycling Federation of India (CFI) trials.

Calling the 15-year-old's journey "unimaginable", Super 30 founder Anand Kumar has offered Jyoti the option to enrol for his program if she wishes to in future. His brother Pranav Kumar met the family. Kumar of the famed Super 30 programme provides Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) coaching to students from underprivileged section.

He took to Twitter to share the news. He tweeted, “#Bihar daughter #jyotikumari has set an example by paddling all the way from #Delhi carrying her father on a bicycle, covering an unimaginable 1200 kms. Yesterday, my brother @Pranavsuper30 met her. If she would like to prepare for #IIT in future she is welcome to the #super30”

Rendered jobless and penniless because of the extended COVID-19 lockdown, Jyoti was forced to ferry her father who was unable to walk properly after a surgery to his left knee following an accident. She cycled almost 1,200 km with her father riding pillion, to reach home in the coronavirus lockdown. From Gurgaon near Delhi, she cycled for seven days, going almost hungry for two of those, before she reached Bihar.

As the story went viral, the CFI duly took note of Jyoti's incredible feat of cycling more than 1200-kilometres spanning over a week.

Her father said that she will appear for CFI trials once the lockdown ends even though finishing matriculation is her primary aim. "We will surely send for the trials after the lockdown is lifted. She was enrolled into class nine yesterday. At the moment, we want her to complete her matriculation," her father Mohan Paswan a news agency.

The District Magistrate of Darbhanga had reached out to her and enrolled her in class nine at the Pindaruch High School. She has also been given a brand new bicycle, school uniform and shoes for her higher education.
