New Delhi: When the grand Republic Day parade takes place at the Rajpath next week, people in the southern Kerala district of Kollam would definitely feel an extra sense of pride. P Jayanti, a native of Kollam, is a member of ‘Seema Bhavani’, the women’s motorcycle team of the Border Security force (BSF), that is all set to wow the limited audience with some mind-blowing stunts. She is the only Keralite in the 110-member group that is capable of pyramid formation and other complex stunts.
The group that rides on Bullet bikes would seamlessly attain various postures and formations offering an exciting visual spectacle. Jayanti, who has been working with the BSF for the last four years, is a constable. She has been practising with the ‘Seema Bhavani’ group for the last seven months.
Jayanti had wished to become part of the defence forces since childhood. She rode a Bullet bike for the first time when she was a student at the Fatima Mata College, Kollam. Her husband Sangeet Raj, who hails from Karnataka, is an inspector with the BSF. Sangeet cannot attend the parade as he is based at the training camp at Latur in Maharashtra. However, Jayanti would be cheered by her father Jayadevan Pillai, mother Padmini and brother Jayakrishnan from the pavilion on January 26.
