London, 19 nov 2010


It is with great pleasure that I am meeting second time Vija my one of the very good friend from Latvia. She is in London, I met her here. She is living with her friend in West London Wood Green. We came to my friend place, where I am staying with Mukeshji. She was happy , we went to visit National Gallery and National Museum and Tower bridge, Big Ben and others places in London. Mukesh brother is a very good man , well hearted, he has lots of problems but he always smiles and invites other friends and global relatives at his place. I met him when I came to london after few days. He offered me to stay at his place and became my very good friend. Last nearly two months I am staying his place. He has a shop in Whitechappel market and we are staying very close to Whitechappel bus stop. It is very good place , 3rd floor one small room, we are happy.



Presently I am staying at Ram Mandir at Southall , it is a temple. It is west London, most of Indian people are living here. It is called mini India, close to Heathrow airport. One day I need to print some photographs, I want to send them for my family. I’ve been to few shops, but they were too expensive, then finally I came to Ajeet Media Studio.  I met Raja Brother there. He is very humble, he gave me very good price for prints. I was waiting there, within that time I explain my travel and how I am reaching to people. When i was going to giving money, he told me: ”It is a present from me, to send those photographs for  your family”. He also told me if I have any problem I always am welcome to come to him. I was astonished! He is simple, wise and always smiling. I met there few other friends who are working there. Their names are Shiva, Aappu, Chirag. It seemed that they are my brothers as well. They are Indian far from their families.  They are studying here and working to earn some money to pay for their studies. Later I was visiting them and they are became my family members. Uncle ji is Raja brother’s father, a very nice person, I am very glad that I met him. When I told him that I want to go to Ireland, and I don’t have sufficient amount of money, he said: “Don’t worry it will not stop you”. Before my travel to Ireland he supported me for my trip. I was happy to go to visit his family. Unti ji is Raja brother’s mother, she’s a very nice lady. Raja brother’s wife I called Didi, it means elder sister. It feels like she is a real sister of mine.  They have two kids: a four and a half years old son, and two years old daughter. They call me uncle ji. They are a great family! I am so happy that I know them and I know that their doors are always open for me.

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.
