Creating Polio Awareness...

Dear Cylists...
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 Rtn. R G Bhat.

All the best on this polio awareness drive. It is indeed a great project. Please publish your photographs and share information about the trip. My email is

I am also planning one similar drive in my district 3131. We have formed a Fellowship group of Cyling and we now represent the Fellowship of Cycling to Serve Rotary International for Inda.

Let us get together and do something.

Yours in Rotary
