A video of her riding her bicycle is taking the Internet by storm. The clip which has been shared by a user named Ratan Sharda on Twitter has been captioned as, “A 68 year old Marathi lady is going to Vaishnodevi on her own, alone, by geared cycle. 2200 km from Khamgaon. Mother's power”.

The video has been viewed over one lakh 78 thousand times and has garnered lots of positive reaction from netizens. Many users have remarked how her determination and courage is inspiring, some of the users have also mentioned how it is the goddess who must have given her the strength to pull off of a task as difficult as this one.

Even though majority reactions lauded her spirit some people did question how this is not the right decision as she could have taken a more convenient mode of transport. Here is what some people who were not in favour of the decision said:

Well, we pray for Amma's safe travel on the road and wish her all the best on her blessed journey to the shrine.
