Special Story: Kartik Joshi of Indore will run 1008 kilometers to increase India's GDP, will reach Ayodhya in 14 days.

Hemant Sharma, Indore. The entire country is waiting for 22 January. On this day, Lord Shri Ram will be consecrated in Ayodhya temple. Lakhs of people will participate in the program. Some people will reach Ayodhya by bus, train and plane while some have left for Ayodhya on foot. In this series, Karthik Joshi of Indore will start the race with Ranjit Hanuman of the city on January 5. After running for 14 days, after traveling a distance of 1008 kilometers, they will reach Ayodhya and participate in the Pran Pratishtha and inauguration program of the temple. Kartik Joshi started by running 13 kilometers. Till date 60 thousand kilometers have been run in 6 years. Before this, Karthik Joshi had traveled a non-stop distance of 277 kilometers. They believe that everyone can make an offering to God, but offering an offering of faith is not within everyone's reach. I will run and sweat with my hard work and will complete the journey in 14 days only because of his 14 years of exile. I consider the number 1008 very auspicious, hence have prepared a map of 1008 kilometers. After reaching the temple, I will also seek wishes for the GDP growth of the country so that people can get financial help and the country's economy can also improve. Till now he has achieved his record by running in two countries and 15 states of India.

Financial situation worsened after father's health deteriorated

Kartik Joshi tells that in 2013 and 2014 there used to be a restaurant in the house. At that time, due to ill health of the father, all the money was spent in the hospital, due to which the financial conditions worsened. After that he started a small tea shop. There was some income from there. Karthik lives with his parents in a small room on rent in Scheme No. 71 of Indore and has to take the help of sponsors to participate in the competition.

Traveled 500 kilometers at the age of 11

Karthik, who has brought fame not only to Indore but also to the country, has medals and world records in his name. It is said that at the age of 11, he started from Indore and reached Rajasthan. After that, when he reached Indore Police Training Ground to run for the first time, he got tired and stopped after running 400 kilometers. A question arose in my mind that running was not my cup of tea, but after seeing others running there, the desire to run again arose in my mind and I completed the 13 kilometer race in the first attempt. Since then, he has covered a distance of 60 thousand kilometers in 6 years. In the present scenario, he has achieved many record breaking achievements by winning hundreds of medals including gold, silver, bronze in more than 120 marathons in 15 states of the country.
