A trip of Class VI students from Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation’s Vidyaniketan School came to see Raigad Fort on January 20. At this time, Omkar expressed his desire to become Raigad Sir to his teacher. Seeing his determination and perseverance, his parents also agreed to it. After that the teacher also took him on a trip. But will he do Raigad sir? Such anxiety was haunting the teachers. However, he reached the Raigad fort in just two and a half hours with everyone. His determination, perseverance and strong will have inspired many.
Omkar is a great example that if you have determination in your mind you can do anything. Omkar, who is studying in class VI, has easily scaled the Raigad fort by force of will even without legs. Omkar is like a normal boy. But unfortunately he lost his right leg in an accident, informed his teachers.
On the day Vidyaniketan was to take the school trip to Ragadvar. Then the teachers decided to take Omkar to Raigad by ropeway. But, after reaching the base of Raigad, he said “I want to go to Raigad only by climbing the steps”. Stunned for a moment, the teacher nodded and patted Omkar on the back. After that, Omkar along with other boys climbed one step at a time in two hours and reached Raigad. Omkar’s enthusiasm at that time was worth seeing, his teachers said.
