Philanthrophy is not just preaching but practicing in real day to day life too. The haves often ignore the have-nots of the society. In a fast paced world where most of us are self-centered, there are many philanthrophists who reach out to the poor and needy. Some of the poor and needy have achieved impossible feats through their grit and hard work. One such girl is poor but talented athlete of the city Jyoti Chouhan.

Jyoti Chouhan was honoured at a small function organized at Deekshabhoomi on May 11, 2015 and Rs 5,000 was given to her by Prashant Pawar Trust.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) and Dr Ambedkar College, Deekshabhoomi true to their calling, have decided to extend a helping hand to her. Both MNS and Dr Ambedkar College have decided to adopt her and provide all the help necessary for her education and regular practice.

A kind hearted MNS leader Prashant Pawar when he came to know about the plight and the hardships Jyoti Chouhan is facing, he called her to his office on May 8, 2015 and assured her to provide her kinds of help.

In accordance with their pledge to help her, Jyoti Chouhan, was honoured at a small function and Rs 5,000 was given to her by Prashant Pawar Trust.

Pawar also assured to provide a job to Jyoti’s father in Nagpur if she wishes. The Vice-Principal of Dr Ambedkar College Dr AP Joshi too has assured to give her admission in Dr Ambedkar College.

Apart from it she was a kit, bicycle and Rs 5,000 per month for her diet. 20-year-old Jyoti lives at Panchsheel Nagar slum on Hingna road, 14 kilometres away from the city. Her parents are illiterate and earn their livelihood by doing some labour work. Sources claimed that there is no power connection in her hut. But fighting against all odds, she has already brought laurels to the city under the guidance of her coach Rashmi Gurnule.

Few months back former Indian cricketer Bishansingh Bedi lauded Jyoti Chouhan on tweeter and said she has a caliber to represent India at international-level.
