“As a person living in India, using a rickshaw for transport is a normal thing. What is not normal is for me to drive a rickshaw around!The thrill of driving a 3-wheeler is quite different. The feel of wind on your face in the open cabin, is a thing to enjoy. Realising that I can drive the rickshaw felt like a good achievemene”

“Difficult to know where to start considering all the pre-planning, during and post event activities and so many of them…..So here are a few highlights from a personal and SewaUK point of view. When Sanjay first brought up the suggestion of a rickshaw ride in India some 18-months prior to our departure, there was no hesitation at all, and the cogs started turning with big bold ideas.”

- Harish Bhudia

“A journey of over 2500km started with just an idea. An idea that led to 90+ people travelling over 12 amazing days in a three-wheeler. An idea that people both though was lunacy and amazing in equal measure. An idea that led to so many amazing memories that it could be a book within itself. ”

- Deepak Pathak

“Our journey was many things: dangerous, tiring, exciting, rewarding, but most of all it was special. It was a special way to see a special country and witness the special work that’s being carried out there. And being able to experience such wonderful moments together was a true gift; we grew so close as a group, making new long-lasting friendships that will not fade any time soon. .”

- Vipasha Surange
