Mr. Debasshish Ghosh talks about how he faced challenges and overcame them during his international bike ride. Debasshish Ghosh is an entrepreneur who administers two restaurants and a security agency but that is not how we know him, he’s one of the first Indian bikers along with Dharmendra Jain of ‘One World One Ride’ to cover five continents, 35 countries and a 68,000 km long journey on just motorbikes, an astonishing feat in just 270 days.
This iconic journey which commenced on June 11, 2017 took him across India and its northeast, Southeast Asia, Far East, China, Mongolia, Russia, Europe, then the US by shipping the bike, going again to Australia, and back to the ASEAN belt before returning to Mumbai on March 26, 2018.
Biking has always been his passion but he never thought that he would take up something like this and was largely inspired for this adventure by a television series called ‘Longway Round’ which is a similar tale of two motorcyclists. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
