Before he started the walking journey he worked as a cable operator. He also tried his hands in several businesses. Because of continuous lockdown, he became jobless and decided to walk to motivate himself. Bharath told,

“At this time, I realized how many frontline workers are rendering selfless service in the battle against the pandemic. I realized the importance of giving back to society and took on this mission in honor of all the Covid warriors, not just the frontline workers but everyone who did their best to help those in distress. Thus, I called it a walk for humanity.”

Along the way, he also spread the messages about environmental protection, the importance of planting, and fitness. Bharath added,

“I had to search for a tree to rest for some time. So, whenever I got an opportunity to meet a new team and people during my journey, I created awareness about planting, and over 150 saplings were also planted at various places.”

He stayed in restaurants and sometimes he found his dwelling place outside the petrol pump towers and sometimes the kind locals sheltered him. He filled his stomach on the go. Bharath continued,

“Wherever I stayed, I would ask the concerned person if she/he has any contact for the next 50 km, and then repeat the same. This helped me a lot, and I got to meet many people.”
