Mumbai sisters 11 year old Vidhi and 9 year old Saumya Aggarwal created a world record in skating and basketball dribble on October 2 as they completed their 5 km skating in mere 29 minutes and 30 seconds for which they were practicing for the last six months by waking up at 4.00 am in the morning. This was while spreading a message of Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao, Beti Badhao and ‘Save Water’.
These sisters began skating from the Opera House signal and concluded near the Air India building. The event was inaugurated by Mumbai’s mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar.
Professor Rishi Sarode, who is known for establishing world records, was attempting a world record in skating on May 1, 2017. During this event, Vidhi and Saumya who were present became impressed and decided to make a world record under the guidance of Sarode.
Vidhi and Saumya dedicated all the success to their mother Kanchan Aggarwal who not only backed them but motivated them as well. She saw to it that they follow their regime and also stood with them in rains when they practised.
Teacher Rishi Sarode maintained that she was glad that these two were enthusiastic to participate.With their support, it was possible to complete this world record. In the near future, they will try for more records for sure.
