School visit in Arc Les Gray, France, 11 May 2012

This morning I woke up a little bit late. When I looked at my mobile, it was already 8.30. I received a message from Elodie, who is a teacher at the Primary School in Arc Les Gray. I met her yesterday, she wrote to me after reading an article about me in Le Bien Public de Dijon.

So, I had to catch a bus from the train station at 12.30. I was late, but a coincidence helped me catch the bus (the driver of the Bus number 5 stopped for me to catch bus number 34 A towards Gray).

At Arc Les Gray Elodie came and pick me with her car. I was very happy to meet the children, who were from 3 to 9 years of age. They had lots of questions for me and I wanted to understand their way of thinking. I spent a few hours full of energy. After they we went out for the break, played football, ate chocolate cake, had juice. After break we came to the class again. Elodie and her colleague both were translators, as I don’t speak french, unfortunately.


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.
