A woman named Nirmala Gokhale became the saviour when all

A woman named Nirmala Gokhale became the saviour when all had apparently given up all hope. 

Traffic woes are a permanent obstacle in the life of people -- especially living in cities. Pedestrians have to mostly suffer at the hands of vehicle owners as two-wheelers encroach upon footpaths and the pavements are converted into parking spaces. Similar was the case at a busy stretch in Canal Road near SNDT college, Pune.

A woman named Nirmala Gokhale became the saviour when all had apparently given up all hope. In a now-viral video, the senior citizen is seen blocking the pavement every time a motorcycle makes his way to it.

"You will have to hit me and go. Else get down and ride on the road," she is also seen telling a youth.

Several others join her in the unique movement.

And even the Twitterverse was rather displeased with the bikers, and mighty impressed with the lady.

Will you dare to do what the lady did here?
