Default By rickshaw from London to India - for charity

Quote:
NEW DELHI — A three-wheeled rickshaw hardly seems the vehicle of choice for traveling thousands of kilometers and crossing 14 countries.

Yet the "Flying Rani," a black-and-yellow auto rickshaw with a 175 cc engine, managed the trip from London to New Delhi, forging up steep slopes and through yawning potholes, with only one minor mishap.

"It has driven 10,200 kilometers and only got one flat tire," said Sanjay Sharma, 44, a UK-based IT professional, at the end of his epic journey to raise money for cancer patients.
