Christine Thornhill : Watching this , and listening to their story is an inspiration. I can't imagine many children in this country taking this length of journey to school ........... Unless they were transported by car . As a consequence we have so little physical exercise during school years , little wonder obesity is escalating amongst the population , and education is little appreciated by many , so sad .

Hardik Thakkar : Wish these girls get all education they want in their life.

Sunil Thirukotiyur : Truly impressive, what a perseverance. Good luck girls.

Omprakash Bairagi : Very nice, encouraging efforts from these girls. Great effort BBC!

James Gladwin : Really impressive

PastowanyKaban : and moms here in UK drive their kids to school half a mile through the city in a 4x4 . . .

Robert Williamson : Seen 3D photos before, never seen this kind of film. Amazing 🤘

Daytona : Wow, it's good to see this. I donate to the Indian United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF India - http://unicef.in/Whatwedo). There are lots of other charities helping, but it's difficult to know if your donations are getting to the right people.

Bazaar66.com : This is great, more of this please BBC!

Mayank Rana : I used to read news about this village and the problems they are facing in local news paper This is my place and i have been there... India needs to do a lot of things in infrastructure and basic neccesites And i salute these girls for their efforts

Pete Williams : The BBC should make a full length documentary about this. Sure it would be interesting.

John Apps : What an inspiration to our young students-----brilliant

Max Blinkhorn : Well great content but where I am supposed to look!? I am missing the important bits as I effectively have my back to them at times.

Linda Elizabeth : Wow, as if time has stood still. Reminders of my upbringing, historical moments when innocent dreams meant personal sacrifice and dedication to studying but most importantly respect for my parents.

Alan Smith : Really impressed by the 360 degree photography option. Amazing scenery and helps to feel like one is really walking with the girls.

david dunlop : Truly amazing what some children have to do everyday to receive education. Wonder how many others have similar journeys!

Chris Birkby : The important side comment was when they asked their father to get them a room nearer the school. Is there a charity that can organise this?

Alison Jolley : Well done girls along with your parents for supporting you in your quest for an education. You will do well in life. Good to see this film.

Electro Drives : I visited India for a few months a few years ago, and really loved the Himalayas. It strangely felt like home, to be surrounded by nature and down-to-earth people. Getting real nostalgic :'( Damn, i love India

James Grey : they need the education to train them to be slave workers

JUSTACHIPN : Do communities like this have Go Fund Me ??? I'd like to put this school on my Christmas list :) I see no books :(

XploreVR : Enjoyed this :-)

Coffee with Rohan : owww

Priyanka Ghosh : Not sure where this village is located as it was not mentioned in the video. But I think the local government or the village council should try to re-build the bridge that was gone in 2013 flood. The villagers need to raise the issue otherwise this situation will not change. While the eagerness, hard work, and enthusiasm of these girls I admire, we should not take it granted that this situation is normal.

3D-VR-360 VIDEOS : Never been in India. Watched in VR. It feels so real.. like being there.
