India-born Bharulata now on a new mission
Bharulata Kamble, who has set a world record by driving solo 32,000km and become the first woman to complete the 2,792-km Arctic Circle, will now drive from London to Land's End which is 1400 kilometers. She will further drive to John o' Groats to Scotland and will hoist the Indian flag.
Speaking to Free Press Journal from London, Kamble said this is the second attempt after driving to Arctic last year. Her effort is to create awareness on girl child among the Indian community in England.
"Indians came here before the India modernised. They have the same mentality with which they came, traditional and conservative. Many still go to India to abort their female fetus as it is not allowed here. I want to promote, educate the girl, save the girl," said Kamble.
Kamble's feat will be first of its kind in England. She has previously driven trans continental, covering 32 countries in 57 days and hoisted the UK flag in the Arctic circle.
Born in Navsari district of Gujarat, Bharulata is the first Indian woman who hoisted the Indian flag in the Arctic Circle.
Originally from Navsari in Gujrat, Kamble’s in-laws hail from Mahad in Raigad district.
