Faridabad: A 60-year-old class IV employee who retired from a Government Senior Secondary School landed in Faridabad's Sadpura in a chopper.
Kure Ram had decided to retire in style as his family booked a chopper to fly him home from the Neemka government school, located barely two kilometres away, where he worked for 40 years.
Ram's younger brother and sarpanch said, "Days before his retirement, my brother told me he wanted to celebrate the occasion in a different way. It was his dream to ride a chopper and also to gift a joyride to his family."
Kure Ram's family members gathered Rs 3.30 lakh to book the chopper, which had to make eight trips to bring the entire family from the school to the village.
"We aren’t a rich family nor do we own any agricultural land. But that doesn’t mean we can’t live our life. Our entire family got together and fulfilled my brother’s wish,” the sarpanch said.
