B Srinivasan of Chennai was named in the ‘India and Asia Book of Records’ for such an incredible feat. He came a long way from bicycle. Alone. In such a short time, he set an example as a ‘solo’ cyclist without any help from anyone else.
The fight was not easy. Speaking on the occasion, Srinivasan told the media how difficult his job was. His journey started on 12 February. From Ghanta Ghar in Srinagar. The champion cyclist says, “The temperature was minus 4 degrees Celsius. I thought the palms of my hands would get hot while cycling. But that was not to be. Instead, in 15 minutes, the hand seemed to freeze. And for a moment, I thought, maybe the fingers are gone. ” When he reached a cantonment, an army officer presented him with a pair of gloves.

From mountains to valleys to jungles. It was possible to reach the final destination by crossing various geographical routes. Mill finally recognized. But the work was very difficult. I had to cycle for 15 to 16 hours a day. Then if you find a place for a headache, spend the night there. Eating something to fill the stomach. Srinivasan admits that he sometimes had to face situations when he cried.
In Telangana, for example, the skin of the palm of the hand went up while riding a bicycle in the intense heat! Even so, he has come a long way in Madhya Pradesh on a deserted road. Lonely all around. In this situation, we had to continue our cycling through the inaccessible path of the forest. Wild animals could come and fall at any time.
However, in the end, Srinivasan did not have to face any such experience. He says he repeatedly told himself not to give up. In his words, “I was just pushing myself not to give up. This is probably the biggest lesson I have learned from this campaign. Not without hull. ”
