Prashant Kumar, a mechanical engineer from Arrah, Bihar and Ben Reid-Howells, a teacher from Canada, have joined hands to undertake a unique journey to cover the distance from Pune to Scotland. 

Kumar and Howells met last year at a workshop and instantly bonded over their interest of peacebuilding. 

"We are from different countries still we are brothers. We met in Pune, we were under different projects for peace and education. Right now we are going from Bihar to Nepal. We got a lot of support of the people," Ben said.

The duo has now decided to take a bike ride and carry out a series of projects under "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam -- one world one family".

"We thought this would send a better message and decided to carry it forward. This trip is of two years. This is the project driven motorcycle ride," Prashant noted.

The duo will ride to Nepal traversing through Tibet, China, Central Asia and Europe before finally ending their journey at Edinburgh, Scotland. Prakash and Howells will finish their journey by January 2019.
