Arise , Awake stop not till the Goal is reached – he did not stop.As he pedaled towards the top of Khardung La on the world's highest motorable pass, he remembered the words of his wife and 9-year-old daughter: "You must complete this mission.”
It is a 2,500km journey that could unnerve even the most seasoned traveler — mountainous terrain, snow-covered tracks, killer weather and sub-zero temperatures. All this preceded by a grueling 2,000 km ride along the highways that connect Kolkata with the northernmost tip of the country. Now imagine doing it on a rickety rickshaw, running simply on will power.
In total, he covered nearly 7,000 kilometers (4,440 miles) to be the first to accomplish the feat, which he hopes to have endorsed by Guinness World Records.
