Mumbai based motorcycle enthusiast and entrepreneur, Debasshish Ghosh of One World One Ride has returned home after covering 68,000 kms, across 5 continents and 35 countries over 270 days on his motorcycle, a BMW R1200 GS Adventure. His achievement was recognised through a grand homecoming at the Royal Challenge, Goregoan.
Along with riding partner Dharmendra Jain, who rode with him for a large part of the journey, the duo successfully traveled across the globe over a period of nine months. Their mission was given impetus by personal wishes from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, at a meeting for the One World One Ride duo in New Delhi, before they started their journey.
One World One Ride was aimed to explore the many lands, people, dogmas, beliefs, foods, customs, weathers, traditions and gospels people dwell by and to confirm what really constitutes life here on planet Earth. At yet another level, it sets out to travel the road and live the spirit of being explorers, a very primal instinct humans possess, and come back with experiences that enrich lives beyond all material comforts.
Debasshish started his bike ride from Mumbai, heading towards the North-Eastern route – Myanmar, to the ASEAN belt, South China – Mongolia – Russia – entered Europe through Estonia – Poland – Germany – France – Spain – Portugal – USA – Australia, back to the ASEAN belt – Myanmar – and Mumbai. He is the first rider to have ridden around the world and completed a challenging drive from India and back.
Speaking about his ride, Debasshish Ghosh said, “It’s been a wonderful experience discovering new places and learning different aspects of diverse countries. We at One World One Ride want to attempt living by the universal truth, what the pure human spirit represents, and see how far it can go in bridging minds and bringing people closer and together. Love to the globe and welcome you all with a Namaste.”
