The Living Road

A Motorcycle Journey to Bhutan

Ajit Harisinghani
Select Preferred Format

A solo motorcycle ride across India, and into Bhutan, becomes much more than just a test of physical endurance when 57-year-old, Pune-based, speech therapist Ajit Harisinghani decides to go in the pursuit of that most elusive of all human desires-happiness.
With the idea of Bhutan’s gross national happiness on his mind, he traverses a potpourri of terrain, riding through landscapes that change daily. From arid land to verdant fields, from jungles with glimpses of elephants and tigers to tea gardens…
Along the way, he meets a yogi and his singing goat, explores ancient caves, is frightened in a wild life sanctuary, sees a Schizophrenic bicycle and helps a police inspector overcome his stammering problem. A variety of experiences later, he is finally in Thimpu where a Buddhist monk reveals the road-map to being happy.
A funny, honest and entertaining real-life adventure story that promises to surprise, shock and perhaps even liberate!
