This is no ordinary road trip. In fact, it may be the first of its kind in India.
Two friends from Odisha, Satabdi Mishra and Akshaya Rautaray, started a journey from Bhubaneshwar on December 15. By March 15, they will cover 20 states – clocking some 10,000 km! Their vehicle is a customised mini-truck stacked with more than 4,000 books and, whichever city they visit, they stop at schools, colleges, exhibition grounds, residential colonies, cafes, malls and even by the beach.
