My journey began from Darwin/ Australia to Dili / East Timor on a boat. I try to get a ride on the board. Begged, cried (try to)..no way they would take me on board. It’s not allowed to travel on international cargo. No option left, […]
LooongRoadHome all the way from Melbourne (AUS) – Magadi (Bangalore, India) riding 40,000km of bitumen, sand, mud, salt, river, sea, snow and climbing 4500 mt high!
come and ride with me, keep me company on a lonely Looong Road Home!
After wonderful years of life, Study, adventures in Melbourne – now on a spiritual journey back to my roots :)…..India.
More precisely, Bandey Thota, Magadi, Karnataka, India. (we had to name this place being in the middle nowhere it's 1.5 hours west, of Bangalore) which means “Garland of Boulders”, to start a small community of Artisans and specialised Architectural work. I’m an Architect. We (my brother, Ajith, is also an Architect) have been working towards this dream for 3 years now.
My motorcycle journey involves working on a small photographic documentary which is intended to support the bigger idea/dream of setting up, with the help of retired skilled tradesmen, vocational training projects in parts of rural India.
On the way i will be recoding how people live within the space they call home. The materials they use, techniques they use to build built environment and reflect all these along the way. Also, its an opportunity to establish connections and make association to learn from each other.
My journey began in Melbourne, via Central Australia, Western Macdonnell ranges, Simpson Desert, east coast, Cape York and Darwin. From there by boat to Dili (the capital of East Timor) and then onto Bali, North Indonesia, East Malaysia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, North East India, Bangladesh, back into India and finally to my family home in Balehonnur, Bangalore, Karnataka.
The idea of setting up this page is to connect people, share what i have experienced on the road, and their thoughts on that, and building connections towards achieving the big idea of setting up the vocational training opportunities in rural India.
I hope, you enjoy the updates and photoblog and also keep me company on my epic journey of lifetime.
