7 "Bharat Parikrama: A Journey Around India" by 3 Bikers

The first of its kind of journey around India on bikes.. captured on film

Among the current crop of auto magazines, I like "Bike India" for its single minded coverage of Bikes & Just Bikes..!!

The latest November 2007 issue also had something else to offer along with the usual fare.. it was Video DVD titled "Bharat Parikrama: A Journey Around India". Regular readers of Bike India magazine would recall the travelogues of 3 bikers on a trip around India, which was printed of previous issues of Bike India Magazine.

Bharat Parikrama DVD along with Nov 07 issue of Bike India Magazine

A film on the same has been made into a documentary with a running time of 182 minutes.. and is being given for free along with the latest issue of "Bike India" magazine.

The 3 bikers of Bharat Parikrama

The 3 Bikers in Assam (my home state)


My desire to see places on a motorcycle is only growing by the day.. maybe soon even I'll take to the open road with a few like minded friends

The journey takes these 3 bikers on 17,000 Km long trip which spans 57 days and covers 20 states of India. The bikers traverse across India along its borders, from southern most costal areas of Kanyakumari, to deserts of Rajasthan, to LEH in the Himalayas, to the thick forests of the North Eastern states of India. During the journey, the Bikers faced extreme temperatures from 40 degrees to minus 15 degrees.

Bharat Parikrama DVD

After hearing from my friend Nilutpal, about his recent trip to LEH on his bike and after watching this DVD, my desire to see places on a motorcycle is only growing by the day.. maybe soon even I'll take to the open road with a few like minded friends.

The DVD is a must have for all die-hard motorcyclists and for those who love to travel and explore places.

One of the bikers, Bari Kumar has kept a blog on the "Bharat Parikrama".. check it out here..
