काम करो ऐसा कि पहचान बन जाये; हर कदम चलो ऐसे कि निशान बन जाये; यह जिन्दगी तो सब काट लेते हैं; जिन्दगी ऐसे जियो कि मिसाल बन जाये …

In an attempt to resist them, they threw her out of the running train because a girl alone was overpowering those men. She fall on the railway track and before she could sense anything another rushing train ran over her leg.
She was all alone on the track. Number of trains ran over her leg during the whole night. In the morning, people saw her lying on the track, they then admitted her to the near by hospital.
