The Book

A Memoir of Grand Ambitions, Dreams and Challenges.

On an epic road trip from Mumbai to London, Badri Baldawa’s granddaughter Nishi asks him about his many adventures. She had joined him on his drive around Iceland where their car broke down and she wondered what other adventures her Nana must’ve had. When Badri tells her about a terrifying incident from his Kailash-Mansarovar trip 30 years ago, it only whets her appetite for his stories. There begins the narration—the life of Badri Baldawa—as told by him, punctuated by the many sights and stops on their 72-day self-drive road trip from Mumbai to London.

As I approached 68 (2013), my son, Anand insisted that I had proven enough in my 45-year long career and it was time I took life a little easy. I could do more of what I love the most - travel. My son-in-law, Navin suggested that I write and share my experiences, “Being a self-made man, you should tell the next generation how you overcame various obstacles, in both, business and societal life.” He pointed out that a blog had the potential to take my voice to many, many more.

I am a thrill, fun and adventure seeker 24x7x365. First Indian to step on 90°N, North Pole, trekked to Mt Everest BC and Mt Kailash.

Round the World in 60 Seconds

If one has to travel around the world, one could do it near the equator or the Tropic of Capricorn or Cancer or any latitude. Which basically means you have to go around the axis of the earth. 90°N is also a point on the axis of the earth. At this point, it would take the shortest time to travel round the world.
