The Mumbai Xpress was a fantastic success with 25 people making it over 1,900 kilometers in 12 rickshaws with surprisingly less than 50 breakdowns throughout 14 days! Congratulations, again, to the participants of this extraordinary event, and to everyone who contributed to its success.
Particularly, I would like to especially thank some contributors to the Mumbai Xpress besides the participants themselves.
Round Table India, a charity organization focused on their “Freedom Through Education” initiative, made incredible contributions to the Mumbai Xpress. From providing flag-off locations to school tours, introducing us to local celebrities to the students themselves, it is with certainty that I say the Mumbai Xpress would not have been successful or nearly as enjoyable without the efforts of Round Table India. Here at CEMS, we would like to especially extend our gratitude to the tables of Chennai, Vellore, Bangalore, and Pune. Letting us and the participants of the Mumbai Xpress get such an awesome and up-close view of these incredible projects built memories that will last lifetimes, and contributions that will change them. Thank you, Round Table India, for all of your hard work and dedication to the Mumbai Xpress. You are an incredible organization.
Barkha N Sonzal contributed to the Mumbai Xpress by designing the intricately-made winner’s jackets worn by Harry and Paul of team Nigel Manzil, World Champions of the 2009 Mumbai Xpress. Barkha and Sonzal, the namesakes of their company, are two very talented women who specialize in creating clothing for men to make them “look regal, classy and elegant.” They design traditional and western wear like bundhgalas, sherwanis, suits, jodhpuris, etc, prêt as well as couture and even all kinds of accessories for men ranging from jewellery, belts, wallets, etc. We thank them for making such fantastic jackets for the Mumbai Xpress winners, jackets that are sure to be noticed!
Thank you, also, to the several hotels that accommodated our crazy group throughout the event. Special thanks to the J.W. Marriott of Mumbai and the Country Inn and Suites of Chennai. What amazing service and facilities those two hotels have. Thank you for your hospitality and wonderful accommodations.
