During last year’s lockdown, when all transportation systems were shut, Paswan decided to travel from Gurugram in Haryana to Bihar on her bicycle.

She travelled close to 1,200 km in eight days to reach her village in in Darbhanga district. Her father was severely ill at that time as well.

A large number of villagers assembled at the Paswan residence and consoled Jyoti.
