About this title

From the Author:

On completing his management studies from Germany and USA, Akhil Bakshi traveled extensively throughout rural India, working and living in villages. Between 1982-1991 he assisted late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in initiating and implementing development programs in his constituency, Amethi. As Director General of Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan, he developed the institution into a youth movement. Later, as an Officer on Special Duty to Prime Minister Narasimha Rao, he helped initiate several national programs for social and rural development.
   Due to his keen interest in public service, Akhil set up two non-government organizations. Bharatiya Yuva Shakti, an organisation of rural youth leaders, seeks to provide good leadership at the village-level. Society for Creation of Heaven on Earth assists small and marginal farmers and landless labourers in increasing their productivity and incomes.
   Akhil Bakshi has merged his interest in public service and adventure. In 1994, he led the Central Asia Expedition - a goodwill mission to Central Asia and Tibet. In 1995-1996, he led the Azad Hind Expedition to refresh the national memory with the sacrifices made by the soldiers of the Indian National Army in their fight for India's liberation. In 1999, he led the expedition Hands Across The Borders, a mass contact program for promoting peace and development in South Asia. In 2006, he led the 25,200-km Gondwanaland Expedition, a scientific and friendship mission to 17 countries of West Asia and Africa.
   A Fellow of Royal Geographical Society, Vice President of the Indian Mountaineering Foundation, Akhil has travelled extensively through 85 countries. He works include
The Road to Freedom 
Silk Road On Wheels 
Between Heaven and Hell 
Back to Gondwanaland 
I'll Follow the Sun
Askar Akaev - A Political Journey 
Besides writing travel articles for leading newspapers and magazines, he has produced over seventy television documentaries.
