Saddam Palace visit in Basra, Iraq. 26/06/2013

Saddam palace just beside of work place Shapporji Pallonji in Basra. My accommodation was just 300 meters walkable distance from the palace. I was having a walk with Mr. Bhaskar HR of SP. He told me former President of Iraq Saddam Hussein built this palace but he never came here. He was fascinated by Indian Rajasthani worker who decorated this palace with amazing architectural design. Time passed 30 years people of Basra could not come to enter this place, it was closed. New government made a flower show in 2013 and people can enter presently to see the palace and it is now a tourist attraction. I am so lucky on the road and thanks to God have a chance to visit the palace.

My "Around the World Bicycle Tour for HIV/AIDS Awareness Programme & Presentation of Indian Culture" started on 27th of May 2004, two days after I acquired Bachelor degree in Zoology from the University of Calcutta.

I will travel 200.000 km in the whole world and reach nearly 20 million people. 118.000 km I will travel for charity, that's why I'm selling my Km to people. The support I will get from people buying my kilometres will help me fulfill my other dream: to build a Global village in my native place, Basanti, Sundarbans.
