Hello down there from up here in the UK.
I am planning a backside breaking challenge to circumscribe the Indian rail network by travelling from Mumbai, to the 4 extremeties of the network, being Dwarka, Jammu Tawi, Guwahati and Cape Kanyakumari (in any order), then back to Mumbai in the shortest possible time.
I am looking for people who might be crazy enough to do this. If you have no experience of India then take some advice before declaring any interest. It would work out at at least 12 days non stop travelling. Most people, even hardened rail fans, would be begging for mercy after 36 hours on Indian trains.
I have an excellent target charity in Railway Children who are a UK/Mumbai based charity in aid of all those orphaned kids on Indian railways.
I also have some good contacts in the Indian media and some creative ideas for sponsorship, and plans to do all kinds of blogging for all you virtual travellers. But I need to drum up some potential challengers before going much further.
I am looking at doing this at the earliest at the end of next year, probably at the start of 2011, so you've plenty of time to brace yourself and say good bye to your loved ones if you fancy giving this a go. There's got to be at least one deranged fool somewhere in Aus and/or NZ who might fancy taking this on.
