Who Was That Nineteen-year Old Boy?
When Vinod Kapri saw a young boy running on the roads of Nida at midnight, he slowed down his car near the boy. When the boy saw him, he offered the young boy a lift.
The boy then declines the offer saying that he would prefer to continue his run. He also adds that he works at McDonald’s outlet in Sector 16. And goes to work this way, every day.
The boy’s name is Pradeep Mishra, and he is a nineteen years old boy from Uttarakhand.
But, Vinod was persistent in helping the boy and offered a lift again. That was when Pradeep revealed the real reason that he was running because he wishes to join the army.
And he also added that every morning he has to wake up early and go for this duty, so he runs at night. Pradeep said that he runs for 10 kilometers every day from Sector 16 to Barola.
How Did The Video Get Viral?
Meanwhile, Vinod Kapri was recording all of this on his mobile phone. This was when Vinod jokingly said to Pradeep that he was recording their conversation and this clip will go viral.
Hearing this, Pradeep said that even if he posts the video, it won’t go viral. As people don’t know him and will not recognize him.
Pradeep also adds that even if the video does go viral, he does not care since he is not doing anything wrong.
The National award filmmaker again offered Pradeep a ride and also asked him to have food together. Pradeep refuses once again saying that he has to go home and cook food for his elder brother as well, who will be back after his night shift.
