Creating Polio Awareness...

Despite globalization & economic liberalization, India continues to be one of the 4 nations in the world (after Pakistan, Afghanistan & Nigeria) where Polio cases are still being reported. This is sad but true.

Keeping this in mind and to create Polio Awareness amongst people, on behalf of Rotary International District 3190 and Rotary Bangalore Whitefield Central club in particular, I am undertaking bicycle journey from Bangalore to Kanyakumari. I shall be commencing my journey from Whitefield, Bangalore on 15th December 2010 morning and via Krishnagiri-Salem-Karur-Dindigul-Madurai-Kovilapatti & Tirunelveli planned to reach Kanyakumari on 22nd December 2010. Pedalling a stretch of 710 kms over 8 days will give me an opportunity to interact with people closely.

Sharing this with all my well wishers.


Dear Arjee
It is really sad that we still have polio in our country, despite the polio drops freely available to all, in the primary health cetres all over our country, even in the remotest areas.
Yes! it is only the lack of awareness. My family and I wish you all the best in spreading the awareness.
We wish you a very safe ride and successful mission to Kanyakumari & back.
May endeavors on two wheels find it's true goal.
With best wishes,
Pejathaya Family
Dear Pejathaya,

Thanks a lot for your good wishes.
ಪ್ರೀತಿಯ ಆರ್ಜೀ!
ಪ್ರಯಾಣ ಸುಖಕರ ಮತ್ತು ಆಹ್ಲಾದದಾಯಕ ಆಗಿರಲಿ.
ತಮಗೆ ಸೈಕಲ್ ಲೈಸನ್ಸ್ ಇತ್ತ ಕರುಣಾಮಯೀ RTO ಅವರಿಗೆ ಕೋಟಿ ಕೋಟಿ ಧನ್ಯವಾದಗಳು.
ನಾನು ನನ್ನ ಮ್ಯಾಜಿಕ್ ಕಾರ್ಪೆಟ್ಟಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಕುಳಿತು ತಮ್ಮೊಂದಿಗೇ ಆಕಾಶ ಮಾರ್ಗವಾಗಿ ಹೊರಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇನೆ.
Dear Bhat,

It was nice meeting you in Salem yesterday, may your trip bring more laurels to you and you Rotary Club
