The Independence Day was celebrated across the country to commemorate our independence from British colonialism. All the regional Jeep Clubs under JEEPAG across India, had jointly planned for “Freedom Drive” with a unique motive for the drive in their respective cities – in a view to give back something to our country and needy.
BJC along with KHT Prime had organized for the drive with a motive to pledge for eye/organ donation through Rotary Orchards and to support the Para Athletes of the NGO Divyaang Maitri.
The drive with 47 Jeeps were flagged off from 3 different locations of KHT Prime Centres, and two of the convoys assembled near the meeting point in HSR Layout while the other headed directly to resort. All Jeepers most of them in their ethnic wear further proceeded for a short drive to Jain Farms wherein the lunch was organized by KHT Prime. Jeepers also spent couple of hours exploring the green resort and HANDS OFF from their Jeep Steering – to HANDS ON for a few thrilling forgotten games at the resort.
On this day of pledging to donate eyes, it was eye-catching view with most of the Jeepers in their ethnic wear on the sprawling grounds. Jeepag etched sweets were distributed among Jeepers followed by lunch. Jeepers cherished experiences with their Jeep and articulated some unresolved issues with KHT Team. The day was flourishing with many Jeepers exchanging their views and thus concluded post lunch.
A whooping 19 Jeepers and their family members pledged to donate eyes out of the 47 Jeeps that participated in the event, coincidentally putting this together we arrived at our year of independence 1947.
Happy Jeeping and a request to new Jeepers to be punctual for all our drives.
