I would like to share my experience here.....My cousin, Dr Jerry, and myself started at 6:30 AM (Presence of a doctor made me more more confident :). Actually we wanted to start more early, but fear of stray dogs (one of the main threat in all Indian cities) forced us to wait for good day light even we were prepared with pepper spray to protect our-self against street dogs.
