Mysuru, April 8:- He walked nearly 4,000 km to spread awareness on coronavirus and also to thank those who fought against the pandemic. Having completed his mission, which took him nearly four months, Bharath, a Mysurean, is back in the city.
His walk was to express his heartfelt gratitude to ‘corona warriors’ and he began his journey from Mysuru on December 11 last year. He started his journey to Jammu and Kashmir on foot and came to Kanyakumari. On the way back, he covered Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Delhi and many other states during his journey.
He planted 140 saplings to mark his journey. He visited many schools and colleges and spoke to students. His four-month sojourn was not a bed of roses. He was forced to sleep on footpaths and have food that was offered to him. But he is not complaining.
It took Bharath nearly three months and nine days to cover 4,000 km on foot. Bharath’s selfless effort has been widely appreciated on social media. (MR/KS)
