This 22-Year-Old Used A Crowdfunding Campaign To Travel Through All 29 States In 150 Days
Subramanian explained that he tried out different professions in different cities, and never slept in a hotel even once.
This is 22-year-old Rohith Subramanian from Chennai, who is currently biking across India.
Last year, Subramanian started a crowdfunding campaign and raised about ₹5 lakhs, to quench his thirst for travelling.
Subramaniam explained that his urge to travel emerged after he read a story about a 40-year-old American who had a bucket list, but always made excuses.
It's been 160 days since he hit the road, and he's travelled to 34 states and union territories by clocking 32,000 kilometres.
"I have two rules about the trips: I don't stay in hotels, and I do one new profession in each state I visit."
Subramanian explained that he usually has a host in every country, but there are times where he's slept at petrol pumps, police stations and bus stops. "It's amazing to see how kind the world is when you actually get out there. Every state I went to, I happen to do a new profession like a ice cream seller in Tamil Nadu, a vada pav wala in Mumbai, bartender in Goa, farmer in Assam, fisherman in Manipur."
Subramanian explained that so far, he's loved every place he's been, but he loved Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh.
"You connect with nature and you live life for the very moment. Nothing is constant around you when you ride everything keeps changing every passing moment and all you can do is sit and live in reality."
