Rotary Kallianpur felicitates man on move in Santhektte, Kallianpur.

Sannthekatte/Kallianpura, :  Man from Odisha who has started riding his bicycle to move around India at the age of 23 has crossed our Kallianpur Santhekatte during end August, 2013. The man who has spent half of his life on a bicycle is now 53 and is still moving around in his journey.

This could be the Guinness world record if this human effort the longest ever successful ride on the earliest machine of mankind on a then revolutionary two wheeler could be authenticated by international authority on the cataloguing and verification.


Mr Shiba Prasad Dash from Brahmapur Odisha carried out six bicycle tours of which 4th took 9 years to cover the mighty Indian Territory with all districts of the 28 States and 7 union territories except Andaman and Nicobar islands. His adventurous bicycle ride on Himalayas made him the only person to take the bike on treacherous peaks pushing upwards thousands of meters. The climbers and tourists  saw this for months as he was going on higher and higher while others rode on Donkeys, Mules and Horses. Those who were on the vehicles paused and offered food water and money after hearing the story of Shiba Prasad Dash who encountered the chilli mountain ice and snow winds which made him sleep under rocks without warm cloths, tents or snow gear and the difficult roads or paths  in Uttarakhand, Himachal, Ladak, Leh, Jammu Kashmir and  Kargil.  A small mistake while on accent or decent could be a fatal fall.

The recent one, Highway Journey (6) was flagged off on 26th January 2012 from his home town in Odysha and continued West Bengal, Jarkhand, Himachal, Ladaka, J&K, Kargil, Dras, Srinagar, Udampur, Punjab, Patankot, Chandigarh, Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan, Jaipur, Gujarat Ghandhinagar, Madhya Pradesh, Daman due, Dadar Haveli, Maharashtra, Mumbai, Goa, Karnataka Karawar  and now through  Kallianpura in Udupi, encountering Roterian of Kallianpur rotary club Mr Braan Dsouza.  Immediately the news spread and a few members rushed to greet Mr Shiba Prasad dash and honoured on behalf of the local Rotary club.



He was interviewed by Braan and Alan for 45 minutes at the small road side shop on NH 66 at Santhekatte junction in Kallianpur with slogan for peace elaborating the display on his bike “Peace” he is happy to say no injuries or incidents of attacks on him ever took place in J&K or the dreaded Maoist region narrating his sleeping in forests where man eaters and wild animals just passed yards where he was lone in the dense jungle in darkness!

Throughout his journey so far  he has been sponsored and supported by Rotary clubs which honoured Mr Shiba Prasad with 153certificates of appreciation.

Be Good and Do Good, Peace and Progress, the Highway Jouney (6) By Siba Prasad Das was  wished success by the Rotarians in santhekatte highway juction and Mr Alan Lewis the Secretary of Rotary Club, Kallianpur, offered the banner, monetary, as a token of encouragement from the Rotary Kallianpur.

Money, Paise? see where our friends Braan, Alan and Richard treated him in a Five star abandoned Paan Beedi shop. Moral of the story Achievers and Adventurist whoever they may be they do it on their own risk.
