Thrissur youth hitchhiking across India without missing online classes
Vazhukumpara (Thrissur): A young man set out for hitchhiking across India and wandered through the tranquil villages and bustling cities of the country despite the Covid crisis. He also reached one of the highest spots of the world, the Khardung La pass of Kashmir.
Even in the challenging Covid times, NP Anshif, a Travel and Tourism Management student, continued his journey after conquering Khardung La, which is at a height of 17,582 foot.
Anshif travelled mostly in goods trucks. He also stayed with the truck drivers. Sometimes, he travelled on foot. He started the journey on August 18 and now plans to finish it within three months after visiting 29 states along with Nepal and Bhutan.
18-year-old Anshif is the son of Malappuram native Shaheer and Sajitha. He set out on his journey with the meagre amount saved by doing small jobs amid studies. For the past five years, he has been planning for this pan-India trip.
Anshif had felt difficulties while travelling in the locations with poor mobile network coverage as he never missed the online classes of college even during the journey.
