'Age is just a number' is more than just a phrase and we have people proving it time and again. A recent video of a 68-year-old lady named Rekha Devbhankar set to travel to Vaishno Devi on a cycle has been shared online. A woman from Maharashtra's Khamgaon in Buldhana district has set out on her bicycle in July to reach Jammu and Kashmir and visit Vaishno Devi by cycling over 2,200 kms. A video of her talking to someone on the way has been shared online and in it, she shows complete courage that she will complete this journey. It is indeed inspiring to see her determination to make it through.

Just a few weeks ago, we saw a video of another 68-year-old woman named Asha Ambade who trekked on the steep Harihar fort in Nashik. Now another Marathi woman seems to have taken some inspiration, but she sets on a much longer journey. A video shared by Twitter user Ratan Sharda shows the saree-clad woman proudly talking about her journey to a passerby. She says it is a distance of 2,200 kms that she will be covering on cycle. She also says that "Women should show the courage always." She then drank a little water from them. She also adds that she is alone on this journey and has packed her stuff, attached it on the carrier. The video is going viral as people are definitely impressed with her determination.
