The Great Indian Roadtrip August 24, 2006Posted by rajAT in biking, gir, india, roadtrip, xbhp.
Travelers! Destinations are inconsequential. All that matters is the road. When we say travel we mean it in the broadest sense —exploring and discovering new places, rather than merely speeding through them. The ride and the road equally thrill them, but they’re also intrigued by roadside discoveries, off-road meanderings, and the distinct pleasures to be found at the end of the road.
Its about feeling that invisible pat on the back and hearing that soft whisper from god which says ‘you fool, I gave you life on the blue planet so that you could discover the many people and places that I made for you!’
The Great Indian Roadtrip is an expression of freedom and the spirit of exploring the world around us. It is not just about the thrill of travelling around India on motorbikes but about discovering new routes, the surreal experiences, interacting with strangers, and above all appreciating the diversity and beauty of India. This cannot be understood solely through postcards, desktop wallpapers, lonely planet guides or the many books written by the foreigners. The GIR will bring together all this and preserve the memories in the form of thousands of visuals and videos.
We want desktop adventurers to join in and share our trials, treks and triumphs. We want to encourage members of our generation, and those that came before and will follow, to get off the couch and get out there and try the world out for themselves!
