About Me

Just got back from 15000 kms motorbike journey on my Royal Enfield to collect hugs and gift pictures to people. More details on

From two years,he have been doing penniless journeys the 1st one was in India (2014) and the 2nd Southeast Asia (2015). The idea was to see how one feels when someone refuses to help us. Does it hurt our ego, do we feel insulted, do we feel insecure, do we get angry, what's our tolerance level? He also wanted to see people's reaction when one tells them, "I have no Money". How much of a leap of faith do we put in strangers in today's times? Photo stories of the journeys can be seen on

This year, for Fiazi Safar 2016: He thought it is time for me to give back to the world after the world helped me for two years Consecutively during my penniless journeys. He is travelling more than 12000 Kilometers around India on my Royal Enfield, to collect hugs from people, click their pictures, print and gift them those pictures.
