08 September 2019


Bhubaneswar: Nothing is impossible if one has the determination and grit to achieve. Background, surroundings, lack of opportunities does not really matter for achievers. A befitting example endorsing this assertive is the achievement of a girl belonging to a tribal community in Odisha who is an airline pilot today.

After years of education and rigorous training which was for 6 years,  Anupriya Lakra, a native of Sundergarh district has been inducted in a private airline. She will join the airline as a co-pilot. She holds an engineering degree from a city-based college.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik congratulated Anupriya for her exceptional achievement today. Wishing her success in future, Naveen said that she is an epitome of perseverance and determination. The Odisha CM took to Twitter to congratulate the young female pilot on Sunday.
