Message from a friend

Here is a message from my friend Asim Suter – it is amazing what Avijit Chakraborty is trying to achieve. Please do read and see if you can help in any way:


Dear Friends,

Please read this article

“Avijit Chakraborty, 35, started his journey late last March and plans to visit 62 countries and bike 64,000 kilometers by November”. Chakraborty is 7,850 kilometers and 25 countries toward his goal and leaves behind his wife, Arundhati, and 4-year-old daughter, Ahana. (more…) He has already circumnavigated the world once in 1999-2000 on bicycle. This
is his second time (more…).

Right now as I type this person is headed for San Jose enroute LA to Mexico from Seattle.I came to know about him from a friend of mine in Seattle today only. He needs a few things to continue:

1) Shelter in San Jose for few days – he needs to get visas done in SF – [That’s mine 🙂 He’ll be staying with us as long he can, time is precious for him, he is targetting the Guinness Record ]

2) Funds – He is self sponsored and has sustained on charity so far. He has been supporting himself by staying the nights at police stations or temples/gurdwaras..or a tent that he carries with him [ what I judged from talking to him is that he needs as much as possible – he still has a long way to go ]

3) Press coverage.[ What does it take to get a coverage in San Jose Mercury News or SF Chronicle ? ]

4) If you have friends who can help him in LA and beyond ( Mexico and South America)Please let me know if you can help with ideas and/or money.

If you can help by donating money please contact me. I’ll personally collect it and hand over to him When he is in San Jose. He is expected to be in San Jose sometime around April 05/06.
