Devyani in race to promote girls education

 

NeW Delhi: Diplomat Devyani Khobragade, who was charged in 2013 with visa fraud by US authorities, will later this month undertake a cross-country run in her home state of Maharashtra aimed at promoting women education and empowerment.

 

Khobragade will try to keep pace with legendary ultra-marathon, endurance runner and former Australian MP Pat Farmer, who has undertaken a 4,600 km Spirit of India Run from Kanyakumari to Srinagar to raise funds for girls education in India, as also to improve bilateral ties between India and Australia.

In an exercise promoted by both the Indian and the Australian governments, Farmer started his run from Kanyakumari on January 26, Indias Republic Day and which is also celebrated as Australia Day by the island nation, and is expected to enter Maharashtra on February 9. Thats when Khobragade will join the Australian MP.

Khobragade, who has done two half-marathons and several other runs, will also help organise meetings for Farmer with schoolchildren.
