Hit The Road: India

by Ric Gazarian

My second book, Hit The Road India, traces my adventure across India. I drove an auto-rickshaw for 2000 km from Mumbai to Chennai. I participated in a rally organized by Rickshaw Challenge.  This race can be described as a cross between the Cannonball Run and Amazing Race. In the book, I recount the challenges — from mundane to potentially life-threatening — that me and my teammate faced racing through this foreign land.

The rickshaw is most likely the most inappropriate vehicle for this task. The rickshaw is semi-open and only has 7 hp (think riding lawn mower). It is prone to frequent break downs.

Competing with 5 other teams from around the world, I and my partner would drive anywhere from 8-15 hours a day to get to the next destination.

We faced many challenges during our two week: detention by the police, battling the monsoons, food sickness, Indian traffic and roads, and setting the record for running out of gas.  Check it out!  Only $2.99 on  Kindle   Amazon Hard Cover    iTunes     Barnes&Noble/Nook
