Thank you sanjumodi for the wishes. Keep dreaming as you have to dream before you get a chance to turn it into reality. You never know what waits for you in the future!!

Icon15 My journey from Glasgow to Goa by road is in the final stages now!!

Finally i am getting there. I have got most of the visas (except on which is under consideration and should be with me sometimes next week). The date of flag off would be the same which was decided 3 months earlier i.e. 28th September for George Square, Glasgow.

I hope with all your wishes and support i am able to do this journey, raising money and awareness for the cause. Please feel free to pass your advice at Glasgow to Goa by road

Best of luck .

Manoja bhai, i will keep my website up to date with the latest information. During the travel it would be too much for me to try to do everything. Please update the forum from my website if you get a chance and as you deem fit.

ब्रिटेन से POK के बीच चलेगी बस

नई दिल्ली
एशिया से यूरोप तक का सफर बस से करने वालों के लिए एक अच्छी खबर है। एक मीडिया रिपोर्ट के मुताबिक, पाक अधिकृत कश्मीर (पीओके) स्थित मीरपुर से ब्रिटेन के आलीशान शहर बर्मिंगम को सड़क के रास्ते जोड़ने के लिए एक सीधी बस सर्विस शुरू की जा रही है। शुरुआत में हर पखवाड़े 4 लग्जरी बस चलाए जाने की योजना है। सफर के दौरान दर्शनीय जगहों की सैर और कैंपिंग करने के अलावा रेस्तरां भी ले जाया जाएगा।

हिमालय की घाटियों में स्थित मीरपुर को छोटा बर्मिंगम भी कहा जाता है। यह शहर अपने उन भव्य बंगलों और इमारतों के लिए जाना जाता है, जिन्हें अमीर विस्थापित कश्मीरियों ने बनवाया है। गौरतलब है कि दुनिया की सबसे ज्यादा कश्मीरी विस्थापितों की आबादी बर्मिंगम शहर में बसती है। यह बस सर्विस इन लोगों के लिए काफी फायदेमंद साबित होगी। बर्मिंगम के एमपी खालिद महमूद के परिवार की जड़ें भी मीरपुर में हैं। महमूद का मानना है कि यह बस सर्विस बेहद कामयाब होगी क्योंकि ब्रिटेन से पाकिस्तान का औसत हवाई किराया ही करीब 600 पाउंड (करीब 51 हजार रुपये) है। हालांकि, बस के रूट के मद्देनजर सुरक्षा संबंधित चिंताएं भी हैं। प्रस्तावित रूट में बस पाकिस्तान के क्वेटा शहर से भी गुजरेगी। माना जाता है कि अफगानिस्तान बॉर्डर के करीब स्थित इस शहर में तालिबान के टॉप लीडर्स का अड्डा है।

4 हजार मील लंबा होगा बस का रूट
7 देशों से होकर गुजरेगी (ईरान, पाकिस्तान, टर्की, सर्बिया, बेल्जियम भी रूट में)
12 दिन लंबा होगा सफर
130 ब्रिटिश पाउंड (करीब 11 हजार रुपये) होगा किराया

Navbharat times

New 4000-mile bus route will connect Birmingham to Kashmir

London, Sept 24 (ANI): Mirpur in Jammu and Kashmir will now be directly linked by road with the United Kingdom through a direct bus service, says a report.

A new 4,000-mile bus route connecting the city Birmingham, will pass through seven countries, including Iran, before finally reaching its destination, also known as 'Little Birmingham'.

Passengers embarking on the epic 12-day journey are likely to be charged 130 pounds for a ticket, the Daily Mirror reports.

The service is definitely a good news for the people of Birmingham, which is home to the world's largest population of Kashmiri expats.

According to the report, security concerns have, however, been raised about the route, which will stop over at Quetta, Pakistan.

Top Taliban commanders are said to be hiding in the volatile city, near the Afghan border. (ANI)
