'Running 10 km a day to join army': How Uttarakhand boy Pradeep Mehra became internet sensation
Filmmaker and author Vinod Kapri has shared a video which has gone viral on social media. The video shows Kapri, who is driving a car, interacting with a 19-year-old boy Pradeep Mehra, who is sprinting on a road in Noida in the dead of night. The filmmaker, presumably out of curiousity, slows down his car and initiates a conversation with him. The boy, an army aspirant, refused Kapri's offer repeatedly of drop him home and expned to him why he runs 10 kilometers everyday. The video has gone viral with netizens including known public figures and po iticians praising the boy for his spirit.
Pradeep showed us all that work and passion go hand in hand.
It's good to know that kids like him are getting recognition. But it's quite common for kids in Himachal and Uttarakhand. As we love the nation and the army. Jai Hind, Jai Bharat.

Love for Army is in the blood of Uttarakhand's Youth . His efforts are Highly commendable but there are innumerable youngsters preparing for armed forces & jogging out at 4-4:30.
"India has the largest volunteering army in whole world" this is the perfect example of that.
No wonder we have the best Army in the world...When lads like him join the army what else do we need...Come on Pradeep...
Kudos to this lad.
Very inspiring indeed
Now I understand why army personnel are one of the finest.
