I'm in Namibia! 100 Countries Around the World!

London, 2 jan 2011


I am kindly thankful to the whole High Commission of India for their support and cooperation for my global trip. I would like to thank Mr. Jitendra Kumar who i met six years ago in Sri Lanka’s Indian Embassy. As a first secretary of education he helped me a lot. It was a great pleasure to meet him second time here, in London. I got the same help and cooperation from him this time also.

I would like to thank Mr. Anand Kumar, attache of Hindi and culture. During my travel around United Kingdom he made contact with people and arranged my accomodations. He helped to get in contact with univercities, collages, social organisations and Indian community. It was a great opportunity to meet all the good people living in the United Kingdom. His kindness and helpfulness always make people to come close to him and his door is always open for those who really need his support. With lot of work he’s never tired. His openess reminds me Gandhi ji’s word: “Simple living, but high thinking”. I feel very happy when I’m coming close to him and feel honoured to help him when he needs it. Such kind of persons remind me that there are a lot of good people in this world.

I would like to introduce another person who came into my life when I was in Kazakhstan, Mr. George Raju. He was HOC of Indian Embassy. He helped me a lot, otherwise i would have had to go back to India to postpone my mission. I met him second time in London also. It was nice to meet him here. He’s always so excited and kindhearted. I’m very thankful to him that I’m here.

Also I would like to thank His Excellency High Commissioner of India, S.M. Krishna – External Affairs Minister of India and other officials. It was a great meeting.

About Somen Debnath

Dear friends, my name is Somen Debnath. I am a resident of the village of Basanti, Sundarbans, West Bengal, which is a great mangrove forest and the largest tiger reserve in India. 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 have also completed 'Visarad' in Fine Arts from the Sarbabhartiya University. My goal is to cover 191 countries till 2020. 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.
