A 20-year-old student from Manipur Ji Ingobi Chingtham who started his solo cycling adventure from Navi Mumbai to New Delhi on Sunday to encourage cancer patients and also to spread the message to stay fit, is currently riding in Gujarat after crossing many important towns cities this morning, reports reaching here said.
His cycle ride was formally flagged off by the important functionaries of the Manipur association based in Mumbai along with some cancer patients from Kharghar in Navi Mumbai.
Ji Ingocha Chingtham, a resident of Khongjom Sapam Mayai Leikai in Manipur’s Thoubal district targets to complete this cycling trip of 1429 kms within five days in order to enter into the Indian record books.
He said that he was inspired by the latest slogan ‘Hum fit ho toh Indian fit’ (If we are fit then the entire India is fit).
That’s why he decided to take off on this road journey on a cycle to cover 1420 kms, according to reports reaching here.
Ingobi hopes to reach India Gate in Delhi on October 11 by riding his cycle in an average of 300 km per day.
But the heat wave in Gujarat is likely to affect his proposed target to reach the destination within the said time frame.
“But I’m also dedicating my cycle ride for the cancer patients so as to encourage them to fight the disease,” Ingocha said while interacting with few Manipuris who are currently staying in Mumbai which has became a new destination for cancer treatment.
In April 2018, this Manipur lad had also cycle 3100 kms from Imphal to New Delhi in 23 days to spread the message of ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ (Save our girls, educate the girls child) throughout his cycle trip.
He had stopped in various towns, villages and cities to interact with people especially with the school students to tell them that the vital important of learning and education.
